Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797
It is not known what letters Thorvaldsen is referring to; nor is it known whether he had received any letters from Denmark as early as January 1797, when this list was written.
Thorvaldsen did not receive a letter of 1.11.1796 from Gotskalk Thorvaldsen until June 1797 in Rome. It had been sent from Malta by the chaplain of the Thetis, Peder Pavels, together with a letter from Pavels himself of 21.5.1797.
They could also be letters that Thorvaldsen himself had brought along on the journey.
