Comment on Antagelig marts 1797

Probably the letter dated 21.2.1797 from Thorvaldsen to his parents, for which his father thanks him in his letter dated 8.5.1797. This letter, now lost, from Thorvaldsen must have been enclosed in Thorvaldsen’s letter dated 13.2.1797 to the Academy of Fine Arts.
The date of the letter, 21.2. instead of 12.2., may be a slip of the pen on the part of Thorvaldsen’s father, or the letter to the Academy of Fine Arts might have been forgotten and not sent until after 21.2.
