Comment on 6.8.1807

I.e. the royal Danish banking office in Altona, see letter of 16.5.1807.
The transfer of money from Copenhagen to Rome went through Altona and Leghorn, probably to obtain a better rate by exchanging into the currency hamburger banco, see more about this in “Monetary Units”:/artikler/moentenheder and Bills of Exchange.
