Scope and content

9. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Jules Claretie (1840-1913), Paris, 7 October 1868, 1 p.
An extremely interesting confidential letter, in which Zola, at the time a young writer for La Tribune, writes to Claretie who, he has learned, has just been hired by the same newspaper. Zola requests that Claretie, who was already writing for a number of newspapers, not submit articles of the same sort which Zola was writing (his “chroniques”), since Zola’s work at the Tribune represented for him, at the time, “the only sure work that I have at the moment”. Published in Correspondance, vol. II, p. 158-159 (letter 36).
