Comment on 12.10.1799

See Gotskalk Thorvaldsen’s letter of 20.5.1799.
Thorvaldsen received his father’s letter around 4½ months after it was sent from Copenhagen, which was clearly an unusually long time and shows that postal services were very slow in war-torn Europe, see the related article about Mail Processing Time.
