Dated . Sent from () to Stockholm (Sweden). Written in Latin.

Amicissimo viro,
perpetim colendo.

Redii sub abitu Tabellarii a Satrapa Provinciae, apud quem hodie laute exceptus fui.

Thea egregie non modo vivit, sed ex floribus luxuriat et nobis spem promittit sempiternam.

Laetor ex animo, quod valeas cum nobilissima familia, quod salvus redditus Drotningholma.

Me nocte diequam labores academici et Systematis exercent, ut vix fiare liceat. Vale!
