Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

This is presumably Jean-François Guillaumier, who was the Maltese pilot of French origin, who, among other things, sailed with the Thetis to Tripoli and was a guide and companion to Thorvaldsen, Peder Pavels and other members of the crew on board the Thetis during her stay in Malta. See Pavels’ diary in Sørensen & Schirò, op. cit., p. 36 (note 21), 48-51, 55.
See the article about Guillaumier, ibid., p. 109-114. Guillaumier liked the tobacco mentioned by Thorvaldsen, see ibid. p. 111.
