The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

This is presumably the Danish consul in Malta, Joseph Abela (Habela), see Sørensen & Schirò, op. cit., e.g. p. 73, note 121.
Thiele I, p. 76 and 78 mentions that Thorvaldsen got a letter of recommendation for Mathé from Captain Fisker of the Thetis and not from Consul Abela.
