Linnaeus does not have the Sicilian plants Jacquin had asked about. He is very disturbed to hear that Jacquin has not received the list he sent him, which contained the answers to many of Jacquin’s questions for names. – The specimens sent by Jacquin have already been sorted into Linnaeus’s herbarium under Linnaeus’s numbers, so they are practically impossible to retrieve without access to those numbers, given in the catalogue.
Coronilla coronatacauses some comments. Also, the use of Ledum on inflammatory diseases is of great interest, so Linnaeus will try it himself some time.
The mosses sent are identified, and some other details are commented upon.
