Comment on 12.10.1799

The first sentence of the letter is reminiscent of the introduction to the letter from his father, which reads: “With great pleasure I have received your loving letter dated the 29th of March, from which I learn that you are well and healthy.”
Thorvaldsen seems to have used his father’s words as an introduction to his own letter to Abildgaard.
