Scope and content

  1. A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Marius Roux (1838-1905), Médan, 23 juin 1887, 1 p. Zola apologizes for postponing the visit of the Roux family, since he did not know that Roux’s wife and daughter were leaving on holiday. He proposes that they re-schedule their visit for August and wishes them a pleasant holiday.
    Marius Roux was a long-time friend of Zola who had collaborated on Zola’s only (and ultimately unsuccessful) venture into newspaper publishing in 1870, when he and Roux founded the short-lived La Marseillaise. Marius Roux was a novelist himself, as well as a journalist, working for Le Rappel, L’Événement illustré and Le Petit Journal, among other papers.
    Published in Correspondance, vol. VI, page 153 (letter 103).
