In the margin at the end of the letter Thorvaldsen has written the letters MIC / #J. This must be the identification mark which had been put on the crate as was the custom when forwarding goods.
The J may stand for the shipping business of Jaume & Schwarz in Leghorn, which Thorvaldsen used in 1800 when he sent more crates to Denmark, see the related article about Transportation of Crates.
