Comment on 4.2.1827

“I do not doubt that the sculptor Freund will accompany this important shipment to Leghorn, and the most convenient way for him to return to Denmark would be to travel on board the frigate –
If he were ever to execute his meritorious composition from Norse mythology, it must be in the North, and he will not forget that a position and a studio have been reserved for him when he returns. “
Cf. letter dated 25.11.1826 from Christian (8.) Frederik to Thorvaldsen.
