ZOLA emile (1840-1902)
LAS "Emile Zola", Paris 20 February 1893, to a confrere; 1 page and a half in-8 (framed).
Zola drinking tea.
This is probably the answer to a survey. "I stopped drinking coffee for twenty years. I've started taking some again, and I feel my nerves are getting quite a bad deal. But I'm a great tea drinker, I only drink tea now, having long since stopped all trade with wine. But I meet many people that tea keeps them awake when coffee leaves them perfectly calm. I believe that in these matters it's only a question of temperament and habit."
