Link: linnaeus.c18.net/Letter/L1921 • Carl Linnaeus to Abraham Bäck, 10 June 1755 n.s.
Dated 10 Junii 1755. Sent from Uppsala (Sweden) to Stockholm (Sweden). Written in Latin.

Amico Colendissimo,
D[omino] D[octori] ABR[AHAM] BAECK,
Medicorum Duci,
S[alutem] pl[urimam] d[icit]
C[arolus] Linnaeus.

Quamvis doleo, quod non liceat Te cum Tua, una cum reliquis meis affinibus, qui hodie vel cras aderunt, una praesentes videre, laetor tamen, quod proxima hebdomade accedas, quod mihi maximum solatium adfert.

Hasselquistiana nondum vidi, nec de iis audivi ulla, praeter ea quae mihi amicissime impertiisti.

Nihil apud me novi; tenellas enim meas plantas colo, quo stupenda naturae mysteria liceat indies intueri, et studiosos alumnos meos per campos plantarum caussa educo.

Me nunc adiit D[omi]nus Klingenstierna, qui Te plurimum valere jubet et epistolam interrumpit.

Upsal[iae] d[ie] 10 Junii 1755.

Archiatren
Wälborne H[err] Doctor BAECK
Stockholm.

Linnaeus has not yet seen Fredrik Hasselqvist’s material, nor does he know more than what Bäck has told him.

There is nothing new with Linnaeus. He is studying his plants and teaches his pupils.

mathematician, professor of experimental
physics at Uppsala. Correspondent of
