General Comment

This draft is found on the last page of another draft of 6.8.1804 from Thorvaldsen to the Academy of Fine Arts – written by Herman Schubart. This fragment is written in pencil and is quite difficult to decipher as appears from the transcript.
There ia another, slightly longer draft of the same letter, see the general comment there on Thorvaldsen’s letter writing process.
