- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Jules Claretie (1840-1913), Paris, 7 October 1868, 1 p.
An extremely interesting confidential letter, in which Zola, at the time a young writer for La Tribune, writes to Claretie who, he has learned, has just been hired by the same newspaper. Zola requests that Claretie, who was already writing for a number of newspapers, not submit articles of the same sort which Zola was writing (his “chroniques”), since Zola’s work at the Tribune represented for him, at the time, “the only sure work that I have at the moment”. Published in Correspondance, vol. II, p. 158-159 (letter 36).

- A.l.s. from Zola to Édouard Bauer, Paris, 8 February 1869, 1 p.
Zola writes to Bauer, the founder and director of L’Événement illustré, in which Zola’s novel, La Famille Cayol (initial title of Les Mystères de Marseille) had been appearing since 23 October, 1868. Zola has learned that the newspaper is changing hands and Zola wants to know if the debt of 200 francs, which is owed to him by Bauer, will be assumed by the new owner, M. Damé. Published in Correspondance, vol. II, p. 195 (letter 68).

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Louis Boussès de Fourcaud (1851-1914), Paris, 18 April 1879, 1 p.
A brief letter, in which Zola thanks Fourcaud for his article and for having “clearly indicated” Zola’s role in the definition of the naturalist ethic. Zola refers to an article published in Le Gaulois the same day.
In his article, Fourcaud attacked Zola’s detractors and reiterated Zola’s explanation that he was not in fact the inventor of “naturalism”, but that, as he had stated a few weeks later in his “Lettre à la jeunesse”, he was simply an observer and a documenter of his times.

A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Damase Jouaust (1834-1893), Médan, 18 December 1884, 2 p.
Zola thanks Jouaust for his lovely edition of Une page d’amour (see letter 12 in this inventory) and compliments the artists on their fine work. Asks Jouaust not to send him any more copies of the work and asks him about the payment of 5,000 francs which is due him for having given Jouaust permission to reproduce the work. They will straighten this out when Zola gets back to Paris in January.
On the deluxe illustrated edition of Une page d’amour, see the notes to letter 12.

- A.l.s. (visiting card) from Émile Zola to [Paul-François Ménard-Dorian], Paris, s.d., 1 p.
“With our deepest sympathy on your loss”. Paul Ménard-Dorian (1846-1907) was an extremely prominent armaments manufacturer and member of the Republican government from 1877 to 1889 and from 1890 to 1893. In 1900, Zola toured the Ménard-Dorian factories at Unieux in preparation for his 1901 novel, Travail, which is set in a steel foundry.
Further research into the biography of Paul Ménard-Dorian would probably help in determining the date of this visiting card, which is obviously a message of condolence. The address on the card (23, rue Ballu) suggests that the card must date from between 1877 and 1889, the period during which Zola lived in this Paris apartment.
**The text of this card has not been published.

- A.l.s. with envelope from Émile Zola to Ély Halpérine-Kaminsky (1858-1936), [Paris, 23 June 1891], 2 p.
In this declaration, which is a continuation of Zola’s conversation with Halpérine-Kaminsky regarding Tolstoï’s ideas (see above, letters 21 and 27), Zola states that he neither smokes nor drinks, but does not think that this makes him a better person : his decision was based on his own personality and his health concerns. He goes on to say that he finds Tolstoï’s theory that men smoke and drink instinctively in order to lull their conscience is somewhat overly dramatic. For Zola, men drink for pleasure and smoke first to show off and then by habit. He concludes by saying : “Good Lord! Why not leave this pleasure and this habit with those who don’t suffer by it?” A rare and interesting statement on Zola’s personal habits.
On Ély Halpérine-Kaminsky, see the notes to letter 21.
The envelope is stamped and franked, and reads : “Monsieur Halpérine-Kaminsky, 85 boulevard de Port-Royal, Paris”.
On the text, in pencil, on the upper right-hand corner, in an unknown hand : “[23 juin] 1891”.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Louis Gallet (1835-1898), Paris, 18 August, 1892, 1 p.
Zola informs Gallet that he is on the point of leaving Paris for a six week trip, but that he would nonetheless like to see the fourth act [of L’Attaque du moulin] as soon as possible. He requests that Gallet send it to Médan, by registered mail, since Zola has left instructions at Médan for the forwarding of the document. On Louis Gallet, see the notes to letter 26. Zola was, at that time, leaving for Lourdes, where he was beginning to gather his documentation for Lourdes, the first novel in the series which immediately followed the Rougon-Macquart series, Les Trois Villes. Lourdes appeared in 1894.
The lyric opera, L’Attaque du moulin, was a collaborative effort by Zola and Louis Gallet (libretto) and Alfred Bruneau (score). The first performance took place at the Opéra-Comique in Paris on 23 November 1892.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Jules Claretie (1840-1913), Paris, 7 December 1895, 1 p.
Zola writes to Claretie, one of his supporters, about Zola’s candidacy at the Académie française. He thanks Claretie for his letter, but fears that he is less optimistic than Claretie about his chances for success in the upcoming election.
In all, Zola stood for election to the Académie française 19 times (from 1890 to 1898), but was never successful.
Jules Claretie (see also letter 4) was by this time a prominent theatre critic with Le Figaro and Le Temps, among other newspapers, and was also chief administrator of the Comédie-Française. He himself had been a member of the Académie française since 1888.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Louis Gallet (1835-1898), Médan, 10 May 1896, 1 p.
Zola invites Gallet to come and have lunch at Médan one day in June. He will send his carriage for him to the train station. A Sunday would be best.
On Louis Gallet, see letter 26.
