His next stop was Paris. Cholera Asiatica During his stay in Sweden Axel could read almost daily reports in the biggest Stockholm newspaper, Stockholms Dagblad, about the cholera epidemic that had broken out in southern Europe and had cost thousands of lives. The epidemic variant of cholera, an infectious disease with its roots in India, is called cholera asiatica. Despite several epidemics during the eighteenth century, it was not until 1817 that the disease spread beyond its area of origin. A few years later it reached Astrakhan, on the Caspian Sea.

In actual fact he had nothing against the attention he drew on himself; quite the contrary. As for the actual decision to travel down to Naples, it can be explained by at least two reasons: one personal, and one existential. In a letter to the writer Anne Charlotte Leffler, whom Axel had met when she visited Paris in June of that same year, he wrote that the trip was a part of a private repayment plan. Ever since he had recovered his health in Italy as a tubercular young man, he had loved the country ‘with a passion’, and now he wanted to pay back his debt.

After little more than a week with his sister and brother-in-law at Lunda Axel went on to Högsjö where he stayed for two weeks. The number of letters and telegrams that were exchanged between Axel and Sibbern during his absence from Stockholm demonstrates that Axel’s feelings for Sigrid were as strong as ever. The untenable nature of his relationship with Ultima was remorselessly exposed, and he underwent a severe emotional crisis. The care that the Sibberns lavished on Ultima during Axel’s absence also bears witness to the problems in her marriage.
