Autographed letter signed, bets, 17 June 1914. A few months before the first declarations of war - on July 28, the autrich-hongrie declared war on the serbia -, henri bergson apologizes for not being able to go to the "gracious invitation" of his friend because, "to bet for a short while," he is "cracked with work".
However, he would be very angry not to see her before she left and planned her next meeting. At this time, the popularity of bergson is very great, his works are already translated into about ten languages. Fearing the harmful influence of its main works, the Roman Catholic Church inscribed on the index of books forbidden three works of bergson by the decree of 1 June 1914, that is, about fifteen days before the writing of this letter. It is therefore understandable that being "crash with work" is not a polite way to decline an invitation but is a particularly intense period for the philosopher.
We are sorry that we cannot surrender to your gracious invitation. I have returned to bets for a very short time; I am crushed with work; and it will be impossible for me, all these days, to dispose of my evening.
But I don't care if I don't see you before you leave. If you don't mind, I'll come and talk with you in the afternoon; it's me. I'll write you in. The current of next week, and I'll offer you a choice between two different days.A thousand regrets, with the expression of my most devoted feelings. Third Republic at peace (france).
