Comment on Medio februar 1804

Stanley repeats this phrase in his letter of 28.2.1804: “Yesterday I went to … our good ambassador, Baron Schubardt, where, as your friend I accomplished what you had enjoined me to do.” This phrase seems to be Stanley’s direct answer to Thorvaldsen’s request, and the phrase is therefore an important indication that this undated draft can be dated about the middle of February 1804, see the discussion of the dating for more information about this.
