8. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to André Lavertujon (1827-1914), Paris, 19 May 1868, 1 p.
Zola writes to André Lavertujon, at the time an important journalist and politician, and founder of La Tribune, a newspaper for which Zola wrote from June 1868 to January 1870, publishing 62 texts in all. In this letter, Zola says to Lavertujon that Théodore Duret, a mutual friend, has told Zola that Lavertujon had expressed the desire to read Zola’s new novel, Thérèse Raquin. Zola therefore sends Lavertujon a copy of the novel in the hopes that Lavertujon will find it interesting. Published in Correspondance, vol. II, p. 123-124 (letter 10).
