Nobilissimo & Clarissimo Viro,
C[arolo] Linnaeo,
Professori Celeberrimo &c. &c. &c.,
S[alutem] Pl[urimam] D[icit]
N[icolaus] L[aurentius] Burmannus.

Ultimas praecedenti septimana ad TE datas absque dubio jamdum receperis, quae fuere responsoriae in illas servi tui Lars Broberg, in quibus de illo nostram sententiam Tibi declaravi.

Recipies nunc semina siliquosarum pro Doctiss[imo] Tuo Filio, quae praecedenti anno Illi promiseram, quaedam vulgatiora, recentia exotica, quae praeterlapsa aestate partim in horto, partim in praedio pro Te collegi, inter quae multa rariora occurrunt, quae Tibi haud displicebunt, ut puto, Javanica & Ceylonensia barbaris nominibus, ut accepi pro parte notata, hocce anno, licet praecedenti autumno denuo receperim, non adeo recentia videntur, ac saepius quidem transmittuntur, quod forte humidiori loco navis adscribendum.

Nil porro novi tecum communicandum scio. Salutes meo nomine omnes cognitos amicos, imprimis Domi tuae & consanguineos Phalunenses et diutissime valeas!

Dabam Amstelaedami 8 Martii 1762.

Salutat Te quam maxime carissimus Parens.

The seeds may not look very new, even those which Burman received last autumn, because they were kept in humid places in the ship.
