Comment on Thorvaldsen's Spoken and Written Language

I.e.: But you know well that I cannot write[,] and for that reason I fear that you will not be able to read this [letter] that I am writing[.] It is not solely because of neglect[,] and far less so that I could have forgotten such a friend as you[,] who has treated me with such finesse[,] but the reason is that I am afraid that you are not able to read [this] and will need to let another read it for you[.]
See the draft letter for notes on the spelling and content of this passage.
