Suavissimo Amico,
D[omino] D[octori] BAECK,
S[alutem] pl[urimam] d[icit]
C[arolus] Linnaeus.

Mutatione Rectoratus praeterito die distractus intermisi Te salutare.

Hodie funebria Candidati Krok, quem novisti, conterranei mei, petechiis suffocati interfui.

Ob hyemem interruptam vix hoc anno licet adire Fahlunam; si Tibi sint feriae, me adeas, qui per plures annos me non visitasti.

Die Veneris examinabitur Pharmacopoea nostra. Böra intet gesellerne på apothequet äfter medicinal ordningarne wara edsworne?

Vale amicorum dulcissime!

Dab[am] 1754 d[ie] 17 Decembr[is].

Archiatren
Wälborne H[err] Doctor BAECK
Stockholm.
