Comment on 4.10.1801

Gummer’s identity is unknown, but he is probably a shipping agent/merchant.
There is a vicolo Gummer in Bolzano, and a village nearby is also called Gummer, so the name clearly has a local connection.
Abildgaard mentioned Gummer in a previous letter dated 3.12.1799 to Thorvaldsen.
