Handwritten minutes of the board of directors of the society of the small illustrated daily and weekly newspapers. (meeting of April 12, 1905, June 10, 1905, September 8, 1905, March 10, 1906, June 15, 1906 and December 15, 1906). 5 handwritten pages. Member of the board of directors: Jules Chancel, Henriot, Mr. Pommier, Doctor Sijouet. Meeting of January 19, 1907: "The Board examines the situation of the company. It results from it that 1° the constant fall of the receipts of exploitation of the newspaper "Le Charivari" becomes more and more difficult. 2° that the capital of the company being completely called, there is no more to count on new resources; that the liquidation does not give any more hope and that consequently the debt registered on this account in the assets cannot be considered any more as having a real value; that under the conditions, the liquidation of the company is necessary as soon as possible. [...] The board considers that the fact of having been able to publish Le Charivari on a daily basis with the minimum of resources that the company has been able to gather or receive constitutes an extraordinary fact, but that it would be dangerous to continue in the current form. The meeting is closed." Enclosed: Archival documents of the Charivari. Stamp of the HENRIOT sale on the reverse of the sheet. Provenance: Artist's studio. Kept to this day in the family of the artist.
