Min Bror

i dag hade jag bref af H[err] Professor Sauvages, af fölliande ord.

Licet non dudum ad Te scripserim, Vir Colendissime, qui de Tuo silentio quererer, jam epistolâ tua suavissima commitigatus, sine mora respondeo, me quam lubentissime in celebrium stockholmensium Academicorum coetum, si hunc honorem impertiri mihi voluerint, cooptatum iri; doleo tantummodo quod in me animum quidem sciendi cupidissimum, sed non tanto favore dignum reperturi sint; to-tum itäque illud vestrae gratiae refero quod jam in illustri vestra societate locum inveniam certe et optatissimum et honoratissimum, pro quo beneficio grates rependo maximas. Non scribam ad illustrem Academiam stockholmiensem nisi prius, quas promisisti invitatorias, accepero, aut contrarium monueris &c.

altså täcktes Min Bror gifwa ett bref till H[err] Sauvages namnet är Franciscus, de Sauvages, conseiller Medecin du Roy, Professeur en medecin de Monpellier, Membre des societets des sciences.
