Comment on Januar 1797

The number 16 has been overwritten on 17, which Thorvaldsen had written originally.
The date 17.1.1797, however, is the correct one for Thorvaldsen leaving the frigate Thetis, see the comment for this date in the finished “diary”:/dokumenter/ea8136.
Thorvaldsen’s uncertainty about the dates and the fact that he wrote a draft of the diary indicate that he did not write the finished diary nor the draft daily but collected the material in larger portions.
