af hvilka bien hälst draga deras
honung och vax; ingifven til K.
Vetenskaps academien, såsom svar

for the eighth time, which Hagström sent him, and he did so without exaggeration, considers it a gem. Hagströmís new information, his brief and ingenious style of writing, clear thoughts and conclusions have the result that the reader must have a brain of stone not to be moved with affection for this book. Linnaeus considers that with this one work Hagström has carved his name in the rock so deeply that nothing could alter it, and sends his congratulations to Hagström on achieving immortality.
