Comment on 27.10.1804

Regarding the epidemic in Leghorn and the cordoning off of the city because of the yellow fever, see Anna von Sydow (ed.): Wilhelm und Caroline von Humboldt in ihren Briefen, Berlin 1907, vol. II, p. 278ff. and 283f.
The epidemic claimed about 1100 victims, cf. Emanuela Barellai: En dansk diplomat i Italien i 1800-tallet, Herman Schubart and Elise Weiling, Odense 1998, p. 44.
