Dateringen fremgår af ikke brevet. Skitsen Profilportræt af ung mand – arkitekten Carlo Francesco Bassi?, C492r, der findes på samme ark, kan dog senest være udført i januar 1798, hvor Bassi forlod Rom. Den 27.1.1798 skrev han sin afskedshilsen i Thorvaldsens stambog. Påskrifterne kan derimod være både samtidige eller senere, dog senest fra tiden omkring 1805, hvor Thorvaldsen antog, at hans buste af Agrippa, A759, var solgt. For mere herom se kommentarerne til brevet. Dateringen følger her skitsens.

General Comment

At the top of the paper there is the sketch Profile Portrait of a Young Man – the architect Carlo Francesco Bassi?, C492r.


It is not known what Thorvaldsen lists here, probably works, but the few preserved words are difficult to read and full of spelling mistakes, so it is impossible to establish what.
