From the Hans Christian Andersen biography "The Life of Hans Christian Andersen. Day By Day", written by DPhil Johan de Mylius:


Journey to Germany

April - May

The relationship with Henrik Stampe deteriorates. (HCA confides in Jette Collin in August of 1862 (the diary, 22nd), whilst at Montreux, giving her details of "Stampe's intense love for me, which then evaporated once he had used me as a ladder by which to reach Jonna"). There are still no diaries. These are not resumed until the next journey outside of Denmark (or have not survived intact).
