Comment on 27.10.1804

This word is difficult to decipher. Even though there is no m in the word, this reading makes sense in the context: Thorvaldsen must be content with expressing his simple but sincere thanks.
The omission of the m and the creative spelling may be explained by Thorvaldsen’s dyslexia, see the related article about
Thorvaldsen’s Spoken and Written Language.
