I[lustri]ssimo C[arolo] L[innaeo]
S[alutem] dant Richard et Thouin

Ex plantis Gallicis, si quae forte tibi desunt, aut male extant, expetas velimus; et quantum erit in nobis situm, postulanti satisfaciemus.

Attamen Botanica aviditate impulsi.

Plantas nonnullas ex herbariis nostris absentes, expetimus.
