Leopold Mozart wrote a letter to his friend and landlord Lorenz Hagenauer about his view on smallpox innoculation: 'They are trying to persuade me to let my boy be innoculated with smallpox.....I leave the matter to the grace of God. It depends of his grace whether He wishes to keep this prodigy of nature in this world in which He placed it or to take it to Himself.' Young Wolfgang did succumb to smallpox aged eleven, but survived.
