COMMENTS
Comments:  Glückstadt and Henius were both on the committee for the expedtion. There were two Thostrups on the crew, Christian Bendix (3rd officer) and Gustav Gustavusen (2nd officer). Probably the Thostrup mentioned in the letter is Christian Bendix, a naval officer, more likely to have been recommended by the other naval officer, Amdrup, mentioned in the letter.
