upSUMMARY

Johann Gottlieb Gleditsch sends plants that Linnaeus and Johan Gustaf Wahlbom have desired, among them a two-year-old palm, which is the result of an artificial fertilization.

Gleditsch intends to send two small coffee-trees, of which one is for Henning Adolph Gyllenborg.

The seeds of Anandria and Browallia are growing very well.
