- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Louis Gallet (1835-1898), Paris, 16 February, 1891, 2 p.
Zola asks his friend and collaborator, who was, at the time, director of the Lariboisière Hospital in Paris, if he could intervene on behalf of his cook, Zélie Cavillier, who had fallen ill and who wanted to be treated at the Lariboisière Hospital. Zola says that he will send her husband, Henri, who was Zola’s “valet de chambre”, for the details regarding admittance, and thanks Gallet in advance for his help.
Louis Gallet, a long-time hospital administrator, was also a prolific music critic and librettist. He collaborated with Zola and Alfred Bruneau on the adaptation of Zola’s novel, Le Rêve (1888), and on his lyric opera, Messidor (1897).
Published in Correspondance, vol. VII, page 121 (letter 60).
