  1. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Louis Gallet (1835-1898), Paris, 1 November 1892, 2 p.
    Zola wants to have Charpentier print about ten copies of L’Attaque du Moulin in order to facilitate the rehearsals. Zola hopes Gallet will not mind if he takes the manuscript to Charpentier, and he promises the check the proofs. Suggests that the financial arrangements for the play be the same as they were for Le Rêve. Carvalho’s rehearsal is on November 13th at Choudens’ office.
    On Louis Gallet, see the notes to letter 26. On L’Attaque du moulin, see the notes to letter 30. Léon Carvalho was the “metteur en scène” of the opera, while Paul Choudens was a prominent music publisher.
