Udskrift: Al Sige : Professore Torvalsen / S. P. M.


Veronica Zauli Guarini has called in vain on Thorvaldsen to hear whether he will execute her bust in marble, and how long it will take. If it is not possible, she just wants to know what she owes him for the plaster bust and asks him to send it to her.

Sigr: Torvalsen Revmo:

Per due volte sono stata al suo Studio, per sentire se Ella voleva eseguirmi in Marmo il mio Busto, e a che eppoca potrei lusingarmi di averlo, diversamente desidero sapere cosa le devo per il Busto in Gesso, che favorirà in questo caso mandarmi.
Mi protesto.
