One is a Seseli, but the species Seseli annuus is not applicable, since the species in question is always biennial.
The second is an Orobus, which Jacquin wants to name Pannonicus. It has white flowers. Can it be Orobus angustifolius instead?
Scandix infesta is the third species, treated in a similar way.
Jacquin encloses three dried specimens of plants which he can not determine, perhaps Cardamo petraea, Biscutella laevigata and Sisymbrium altissimum.
The letter ends with a wish for a Happy New Year.
