Linnaeus.

Hodie nullas a Te habui literas. Spero Te accepisse ultimas meas, si non penultimas.

Literas habui a D[omino] Rolandro, qui divino encomio paternum Tuum declarat affectum.

Hodie scribo ad D[ominum] Gronovium.

Post Deum curam Rolandri Tibi commendatam habeo. Fiat, utsit in fatis.

Nil novi apud nos; opto, ut utaris prospera valetudine.

Upsaliae d[ie] 11 Octobr[is] 1754.
