Skælskør is a town in Zealand, Denmark. Historically Skælskør was a harbor for traffic between Zealand and Funen, but Korsør took over when the harbor there was settled. Skælskør Fjord is difficult to navigate, and was one of the last waters in Denmark that legally required a pilot on recreational boats.

The addressee, Schroder Lebrüder & Co., was a private bank in Hamburg.
