Jacquin thanks for the seeds of Athamanta.
From the list of Umbelliferae, Jacquin is eager to get seeds of the two Hasselquistia species.
Jacquin sends a leaf of a small tree in the heated greenhouse. It has not flowered. Jacquin wonders if Linnaeus knows what it can be.
Jacquin returns to the matter of the plant that Linnaeus had identified as Anabasis tamariscifolia. Jacquin had been able to examine a live specimen and found that it differed essentially from Linnaeusís character of Anabasis. He wants Linnaeusís opinion on the matter.
