Comment on 29.4.1823

Thorvaldsen was notoriously slow in answering letters. This was partly due to the fact that he was dyslexic, and that it was therefore difficult for him to write quickly and correctly. For more on this, see the related articles about Thorvaldsen’s Spoken and Written Language and about Thorvaldsen’s Letter Writing Process.
