Comment on 19.1.1812

Here Lund is referring to his professional situation. He had hoped to get the chair at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen which had fallen vacant on the death of the painter Nicolai Abildgaard. The position remained vacant for a long time, and he was not appointed professor until 1818, together with C.W. Eckersberg.
