Comment on 4.2.1809

I.e. scudi. In the draft of 22.10.1808 the amount is given in piastres and set at the slightly higher price of 487 piastres, see the related article about the monetary units of the time.
This may be an error in the writing of the monetary unit in one of the drafts as piatres were worth slightly more, and the difference in such a large amount would be considerable.
