Very scare letter from Nadar Jeune, younger brother of Félix Tournachon Nadar


“Ma vielle,
Si tu veux venir demain matin chez moi nous recauserons de l’affaire de ce soir – si je te dérange mon ami, c’est que j’ai affaire indispensable à traiter et ne puis me rendre moi même chez toi.
Tibi
Adrien
PS : Si tu peux à 9 heures bene”


This probably concerns the lithographed advertising poster for the Nadar workshop broadcast in 1858, the date of this letter.
It should be noted that the previous year a judgment of the Imperial Court of Paris gave the exclusive property of the pseudonym Nadar to his elder brother Félix Tournachon, under whom the latter will sign his writings and which will be used by his photographic workshop under the direction of his son. In fact, the pseudonym Nadar had first been used by a company formed around Adrien Tournachon, in the forms Nadar jeune and Nadar jne, sometimes causing confusion.
