- A.l.s. (visiting card) from Émile Zola to Yves Guyot (1843-1928), 12 December 1900, 1 p.
Zola asks Guyot to reproduce in its entirety, with his introduction, Zola’s letter which had appeared that morning in Le Figaro. He will be grateful if Guyot will give the letter a prominent place in tomorrow’s edition.
The journalist and politician Yves Guyot was at the time the director of the Paris newspaper Le Siècle. The letter in question was written in support of the young writer, Maurice Le Blond, and a group of his colleagues, who had founded the “Collège d’esthétique moderne”, a meeting place for writers and artists, which offered courses and public lectures. In 1908, Maurice Le Blond (1877-1944) married Zola’s daughter, Denise.
Published in Correspondance, vol. X, page 207 (letter 175).
