Comment on Januar 1797

With these words, Pavels refers to the fact that the crew of the Thesis had just, on 18.12.1796, by the Maltese authorities been declared “rene”, i.e. “clean”, free of the plague infection, and therefore “frie”, “free” to go ashore.
The Thetis had arrived on Malta 2.12.1796, and the crew had been quarantined until 18.12.
