Praenobilissimo atque Doctissimo
Dom[ino] Dom[ino]
Carolo Linnaeo
S[alutem] et O[fficia] dicit
Brückmannus, D[ominus]

Quin meas ad Te, Vir excell[entissime] datas epistolas nullo non tempore recte acceperis, nullus dubito, et licet nullas a Te interea temporis viderim et exosculatus responsorias, pro certo tamen habe, me scientiam Tuam peculiarem botanicam et studium historiae naturalis maxime in deliciis habere; fuerunt haec mihi incitamento, novissimam mearum epistolarum itinerar[iarum][1] collectionem transmittendi et judicio Tuo sublimato quandam ex istis devote inscribendi, quam dedicationem non in malam capies partem, est, quod enixe rogo! Sequentes ac futuras hujus itinerarii epistolas, si Deus vitam! nunquam non per Lubecam a me gratis accipies. Desidero maxime scripta Tua minora et fossilia Svetica, pro omnibus et singulis libenter harum regionum fructus et mineras transmittam.

Reliquum favori Tuo inaestimabili ex asse me commendo, qui nullo non tempore ero Tibi deditissimus.

Scrib[ebam] Wolffenbüttelae d[ie] 25 jul[ii] 1749.

Addresse A Monsieur Brückmann Docteur en Medecine à Wolffenbüttel. francô Lübeck

upSUMMARY

Franciscus Ernst Brückmann has not yet received an answer from Linnaeus. He assures that he still holds Linnaeus’s work in high esteem, and therefore he sends the latest collection of his Epistolae itinerariae. On of them is dedicated to Linnaeus, and Brückmann begs Linnaeus not to take offence. Linnaeus, God willing, will receive the rest of these letters as well.

Brückmann once again asks for Linnaeus’s minor works and fossils from Sweden.
