On this day in ...

1863: Ibsen sent a letter to the Ministry of the Church asking to be paid 300 of the 400 rix-dollars he had been granted to travel to Rome. He stated that it was his "Intention in the course of the next few weeks to depart by the steamer for Hamburg". On account of the staging of The Pretenders (premiere 17 January 1864) and an ice-covered Kristiania fjord Ibsen did not leave, however, until April 1864.
