Dated . Sent from Torino (Italia) to Uppsala (Sweden). Written in Latin.

Viro Sapientissimo Celeberrimoque Carolo Linnaeo,
Botanicorum Principi, Archiatro S[acrae] R[egiae] M[aiestat]is Sueciae,
Equiti aurato etc.,
S[alutem] Pl[urimam] Dicit
Carolus Allionius Taurinensis.

Excusatum me habeas velim, Vir sapientissime, si id mihi nunc sumpserim, ut tibi offerrem specimen hoc meum botanicum. Tenue adeo opusculum tibi exhibere non audebam, sed addidit mihi fiduciam D[ominus] Ascanius Danus, qui proxime elapsa hebdomada, cum Augustae Taurinorum esset, certiorem me fecit te minime despecturum meum hoc munusculum, imo acceptum tibi fore hoc meae erga te observantiae testimonium. Rogo itaque, ut velis illud grato benignoque animo excipere, et pro certo habeas tua jussa mihi carissima fore. Si mea opera aliquomodo tibi utilis esse potest, Vir sapientissime, ea libere utere! Nihil enim gratius mihi contingere potest tuorum jussuum honore. Rogo interim Deum Opt[imum] Maximum, ut in artis nostrae incrementum velit te diutissime incolumen servare.

Tui nominis obsequentissimus et
Humillimus servus
Carolus Allionius.
