Comment on 23.9.1806

I.e. Gotskalk Thorvaldsen. The son’s greeting and message to his father probably never reached him. The father died at Vartov 24.10.1806.
Abildgaard wrote another letter to Thorvaldsen, in which he informed him of his father’s death. C.F. Høyer refers to this in a letter of 4.7.1807 to Abildgaard but mentions that Abildgaard’s letter never reached Rome.
