Comment on 7.12.1804

I.e. the Schubarts’ country house at Montenero, just south of Leghorn.
When Thorvaldsen is sorry that the family was staying at Montenero, it is due both to the winter cold and to the fact that they had been prevented from going elsewhere because of a yellow fever which restricted people’s freedom of movement owing to the danger of infection, see more about this in Schubart’s letter of 26.11.1804.
The cold at Montenero caused the Schubarts to move to nearby Pisa for the winter, see Schubart’s next letter of 28.12.1804.
