If Bergencrantz had been less stubborn, he would have tired long ago. He looks for supporters and finds some, but he soon loses them, and must start again from the beginning.
Bergencrantz asks for advice on the fastest way to send letters to Linnaeus at Drottningholm, since he is keen to be able to contact Linnaeus there for urgent matters.
Bergencrantz also hopes that Linnaeus will not force him to go to Drottningholm before the lawsuit is over, for at present, Bergencrantz cannot afford the clothes and other things necessary for a visit to the palace.
Bergencrantz also asks to know when Linnaeus will go to Drottningholm.
