“A Newly Discovered Letter of 1827 by Fernando Sor,”

              by Erik Stenstadvold
The author has sent the following comment as an addendum: “When discussing the date of Sor’s letter, 1 April 1827, I neglected to acknowledge (in Comment <C01> on p. 9) the calendar difference between Russia and Western Europe. Having written this letter in St. Petersburg, Sor would probably have dated it according to the Julian calendar, which was officially used in Russia at the time. There was a discrepancy of twelve days with the Gregorian calendar, and this would imply 13 April as the letter’s actual date according to Western-European practice. So most likely the letter took about two and a half weeks to reach Meissonnier in Paris, not a full month as I had suggested.”
