upSUMMARY

Linnaeus thanks Erik Gustaf LidbeckLidbeck, Erik Gustaf
(1724-1803). Swedish. Professor of
natural history and economy at Lund.
Studied under Linnaeus. Accompanied
Linnaeus as secretary on his
Västgöta journey in 1746.
Correspondent of Linnaeus.
for the letter that he had received last Friday [this letter has not come down to us] during the promotion. Linnaeus had not had time to write an answer because he had had many guests.

Since Lidbeck’s present employer cannot keep him until Christmas, he has to find another, and the one who is now the most probable is a very good family. Another advantage is that it means that Lidbeck will be able to follow the teaching both in Stockholm and in Uppsala.

Linnaeus hopes that that will be the final decision, and he sends his regards to Lidbeck’s new employer.

Linnaeus asks why Lidbeck ignores his mail. Linnaeus had written a letter a week ago [this letter has not come down to us], but he had not yet received an answer.

Linnaeus asks Lidbeck for all kinds of news.

Linnaeus forwards greetings from the one of his daughters [Elisabeth Christina LinnaeaBergencrantz, Elisabeth Christina
(1743-1782). Swedish. Daughter of
Carl Linnaeus and Sara Elisabet Linnaea.
Sister of Carl Linnaeus the Younger and
of Louisa, Sara Christina and Sophia

Martin.
] that is fond of him. She thinks and talks very much about her feelings.

In an addition, which seems to be written in a different hand, the same daughter, then only four years old, “writes “ to Lidbeck, see [Elisabeth Christina Linnaea to Lidbeck, 14 June o.s., 25 June n.s. 1747Letter L6090].
