Linnaeus corrects Nicolaus Joseph von JacquinJacquin, Nicolaus Joseph, baron von
On the Orobus sent as a plate, Linnaeus makes the comment that it is very similar to Orobus angustifolius but not quite so. Jacquin is referred to some works, which Linnaeus can not quote directly since he has them in the city whereas he himself is at the country estate.
A few other notes are given.
Linnaeus has had a spell of sciatica but is recovering.
