Dated 1760 d. 14 Martii.. Sent from Uppsala (Sweden) to (). Written in Swedish.

Min K[iäre] Broders recommendation för H[err] Candidat Österman har jag fått. jag kiänner honom noga. han är swag och hade icke hållit wichten, utan att M[in] K[iäre] Br[oder]s recommendation kommit till, som hos mig är maximi ponderis. Det kommer på M[in] K[iäre] Br[oder] som sitter wid styrselen af Medicinska wärket att öfwerse hwad som felar. Han må niuta det samma, som ett par andre wunnit genom sal[ig] Cancellerens intercession för det de warit i Pomeren; och mycket häldre då Praesidenten i Collegio Medico så godt finner.

Hans Excellence Riksr[ådet] v[on] Höpken blifwer säkert wår Canceller, fast icke ännu är voterat.

[this letter has not come down to us]. Linnaeus knows him from before as a weak student, and without Bäck’s letter he would not have been approved. Bäck should see what is lacking in him and have that attended to. He is in the same position as some of those who have been in Pomerania for studies, and Bäck’s support will help him.

statesman. One of the founders of the
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.The
