Comment on 11.8.1804

The Roman friends referred to here, besides the ones mentioned in the letter, might very well be the same people who attended Friederike Brun’s farewell party (13.5.1803) a month before her departure from Rome (11.6.1803): Carl Ludwig Fernow, Wilhelm Friedrich Gmelin, Georg Zoëga, Antonio Canova, Wilhelm von Humboldt, Giovanni Torlonia, Angelika Kauffmann and Friedrich Rehberg, at whose house the party was given, see Friederike Brun née Münter: Römisches Leben, Leipzig 1833, vol. II, p. 173.
