Viro Amplissimo,
D[omino] D[octori] ABR[AHAM] BAECK, Archiatro Praesidi,
S[alutem]
C[arolus] Linnaeus.

Quod valeas cum Tuis impense laetor; utinam diutissime!

Diu jam est, quod Te, amicorum optime viderim; neque vacat Holmiam hac aestate adire; [qu]aero itaque, num velis circa festum nativitat[is Jo]hannis cum nobilissima Conjuge Upsaliam [adire] et apud me per aliquot dies haerere [...] cursum festinat. Hacce de re [...] responsum fallere nescium; ne [...] repulsam reportas [...] hisce diebus [...] ero [...] neque habui [...].

Si videam D[ominum] Schultz honorem [...]. Vereor, quod chare redempta medicin[a] fallat in cancro.

Dabam Upsaliae 1759 d[ie] 27 april[is].

upSUMMARY

Linnaeus is very glad that Abraham BäckBäck, Abraham (1713-1795).
Swedish. Physician, president of the
Collegium Medicum, Stockholm. Close
friend of Linnaeus. Correspondent of
Linnaeus.
and his family are well.

It is a long time since they last met, and Linnaeus sees no chance of going to Stockholm this summer. Therefore, Linnaeus wonders if Bäck and his wife [Anna Charlotta BäckBäck, Anna Charlotta
(1737-1767). Swedish. Wife of Abraham
Bäck. Born Adlerberg.
] can come to Uppsala and stay with Linnaeus for a few days around Midsummer.

Linnaeus is afraid that the medicine that has been bought for so much money has no effect on cancer.
