Amic[issimo] suo Baeckio
Linnaeus.

Habeas immensas gratias pro lautiss[ima] coena, pro amicitia Tua mihi se[mper] sanctissima; redii salvus hora 6 [ma]tutina.

Literas meas ex Italia, ni fallor, ap[ud] Te reliqui; si reperias, remitte, [ut] respondeam.

Tempus est obviam ire malo arthritico, ne radices agat, difficilius dein expellendo; et hoc diaeta ac mediis, quae me melius novisti.

Te servet D[eus] T[er] O[ptimus] diu incolumem!

Upsaliae 1759 d[ie] 11 junii.

Swedish. Physician, president of the
Collegium Medicum, Stockholm. Close
friend of Linnaeus. Correspondent of
Linnaeus.
very much for the dinner and for his friendship. Linnaeus had returned home at about 6 in the morning.

Linnaeus thinks he has left the letters from Italy, which he had brought with him, at Bäcks place. He asks Bäck to send them to him if he finds them, so that Linnaeus can answer them.

It is time to take remedies against arthritis, so that it does not get a foothold. If not, it will be more difficult to cure. That will require a diet and preparations, as Bäck know better than Linnaeus.
