Comment on 7.2.1827

The meaning is also unclear here due to the difficulty of deciphering the text and to Thorvaldsen’s spelling and omission of words.
However, the meaning must be that Thorvaldsen cannot imagine a better material than bronze for the figures in the John group for the pediment of the façade of the Church of Our Lady.
