Comment on 30.1.1807
The bill of exchange covered the “Gratification” which Thorvaldsen received 6.3.1804 from Fonden ad usus publicos.
Thorvaldsen and Schubart had arranged that Schubart would withdraw the money on the sculptor’s behalf in Tuscany, probably because of a more advantageous rate of exchange there.
As it appears here, however, Schubart kept the money a little longer, see more about this in ...the Only Price I Charge.
Regarding bills of exchange, see more in the article about this.
