- A,l.s. from Émile Zola to Edmond Duranty (1833-1880), [Paris, 30 July 1875], 1 p.
Zola thanks Duranty, a prominent journalist and novelist, for lending him a book, and apologizes for not returning it in person. He is pressed, however, since he and his wife are leaving for their holiday in the seaside town of Saint-Aubin.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Ernest Hamm (1852-?), Médan, 15 December 1878, 1 p.
Zola writes to Ernest Hamm, a journalist with the Progrès de la Charente-Inférieure, to thank him for his article on Zola’s Théâtre, a collection of the texts of Zola’s plays Bouton de rose, Thérèse Raquin and Les Héritiers Rabourdin, which had appeared in September 1878. Zola apologizes to Hamm for not being able to send him copies of his novels, since he is not in Paris, but suggests that Hamm contact Zola’s editor (Georges Charpentier), who is in charge of distributing Zola’s novels to members of the press.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to an unknown correspondent, Médan, 1 December 1881, 1 p.
Note : This letter is written on black-bordered paper. Zola’s mother had died on 17 October, 1880.
Zola authorizes his correspondent to translate his play, Les Héritiers Rabourdin, and to perform it in Germany, as long as his correspondent shares with him the proceeds of the performances.
Les Héritiers Rabourdin is a three-act comedy written by Zola in 1873-1874. It was performed at the Théâtre Cluny in Paris from the 3rd to the 20th of November 1874, but met with little success.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to Adrien Remacle (1856-?), Médan, 12 May 1884, 1 p.
Zola promises to send Remacle something for the next issue of La Revue indépendante.
Zola’s short story, “Théâtre de campagne”, appeared in the second issue of La Revue indépendante (June 1884).
Adrien Remacle worked as head of publicity for Zola’s publisher, Georges Charpentier, before becoming the director of La Revue contemporaine in 1885. He was also the author of several volumes of poetry and of a ballet based on Verlaine’s poetry.

- 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.

- A.l.s. from Émile Zola to an unknown correspondent, Médan, 26 August 1887, 1 p. Zola regrets that he is bound by contract and cannot give his correspondent a volume of short stories.
This may be in regard to a re-edition of some of Zola’s many short stories. Zola was bound by his contracts with Charpentier and with Flammarion (for the illustrated editions). It may also be in regard to the translation of his short stories. Here too, Zola had established contracts with a number of publishing houses throughout Europe, giving them the rights to the publication of his translations.

- 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.

On Louis Gallet, see letter 26.
