Comment on 8.8.1806

The Danish diplomat Henrik Vilhelm Lundbye.
In his letter of 14.2.1806, Schubart had recommended Thorvaldsen to talk to Lundbye about the commission for the monument to the victory of the United States over Tripoli because Lundbye was consular secretary and chargé d’affaires in Tunis 1804-10. However, in 1805-06 Lundbye stayed in Italy.
