upSUMMARY

Wilhelm Roëll intends to go to Utrecht the next day in the afternoon and wants Linnaeus to accompany him. If, however, it is more convenient to put off the journey until next Saturday, that will suit him well too. If it rains the plants will be in better shape.

He asks Linnaeus to answer promptly and to send his regards to George Clifford.
