The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on Antagelig marts 1797

The disconnected words in section 3 of the text are probably writing samples.
Thorvaldsen rarely used the address Carissima amica. Other known examples are seen in his letters dated June-July 1804 and [26.]8.1805 to Anna Maria Uhden, and the words here might be meant for her, see the comment on section 1 of the text.
Regarding the fragment: “Kiöbenhanv d d 20 Mars”, see the discussion about the date.
When Thorvaldsen writes Copenhagen (several times, see also section 4 of the text), it is probably because he was going to send a letter there.
