upSUMMARY

Franciscus Ernst Brückmann has been waiting long for an answer from Linnaeus to the letter from himself and his son-in-law, Friedrich Boerner, who wrote a history of Linnaeus’s life in his, Nachrichten von den vornehmsten Lebensumständen. He also looks forward to new Swedish books and minerals which Linnaeus promised to send long ago.

Brückmann sends two new books and an Achate recently discovered in Blankenburg.
