Scope and content

  1. A.l.s. with envelope from Émile Zola to Ély Halpérine-Kaminsky (1858-1936), Paris, 14 April 1891, 2 p.
    Zola does not want foreign reviews of his last novel, L’Argent, to appear in Le Figaro, since this would look like a publicity ploy. Promises that when he returns to Paris at the end of the month he will send Halpérine-Kaminsky the letter which he had promised him on Tolstoï’s L’Argent et le travail, which Halpérine-Kaminsky had translated. Zola apologizes for the delay, but states that he is overwhelmed with work.
    On Ély Halpérine-Kaminsky, see the notes to letter 21. Zola’s article on Tolstoï’s collection of texts, dated 4 November 1891 [see Correspondance, vol. VII, letter 177], appeared in Le Figaro on 16 January 1892, at the same time as the volume appeared, published by Flammarion.
    The envelope is stamped and franked, and reads : “ Monsieur Halpérine-Kaminsky, 85 boul. de Port-Royal, Paris”.
    Published in Correspondance, vol. VII, page 133-134 (letter 76).
