C18

Link: linnaeus.c18.net/Letter/L4673 • Carl Linnaeus to Nicolaus Joseph, baron von Jacquin, late March or early April 1772 n.s.
Dated . Sent from ? () to Wien (Austria). Written in Latin.

upSUMMARY

Without any introduction, Linnaeus gives confirmations and comments on a number of plates: Solanum, Phaseolus, and Seseli.

On Loranthus europaeus, Linnaeus is surprised that nobody has bothered about it previously.

More comments are given on Silphium, Linnaeus thanks for seeds, and Prenanthis viminea, of which he hopes to get new seeds from a correspondent in Holland.

Linnaeus can not answer on Scorzonera, since he has his material in his museum at the country estate [Hammarby], 15 kilometers away. The snow is just melting, so nobody can go anywhere.

Linnaeus wants more information on the present state of the “dispensatorium” [a special garden for medical and /or more economically important plants] in Vienna, what plants are there etc. A simple list of trivial names will do.
