Högwördige H[err] Doctor och Biskop
Min Högtärade H[err] Broder.

Utaf min H[err] Broders senaste märker jag åter att jag ej kan få den lyckan för än återresan sker, se min H[err] Broder på mitt Hammarby, uti mitt lilla Museo, altså näppeligen någonsin, det jag högeligen beklagar.

Äfter Min H[err] Broders befallning sände jag i god tid frön till H[err] Profess[or] Kalm; men som han ej skref swar på föråhrs frön, wiste jag då intet hwilka framkommit.

Min H[err] Broders
