Comment on 9.5.1818
The letter Thorvaldsen refers to here was dated 7.4.1818 and not, as it says, 11.4.
The mistake is probably due to the fact that Herman Schubart has composed the letter, and that he himself received a letter from Christian Frederik 11.4.1818, cf. the copy in Herman Schubart’s archives, the Correspondance with the King and the Royal Family 1802-1831, the National Archives.
