Just five days after Zola published “J’accuse!” in the French newspaper L’Aurore, Pissarro writes to say that he wishes his name added to “the protestation against the awful judgment of the court-martial” to be published, apparently, in that crusading paper.

Dear Mr. Berttier

I fear I may not be able to go to l'Aurore today. Please add my name to the protestation against the awful judgment of the court-martial.

Thank you, cordially yours

C. PISSARRO.
