Text of the letter in the original Dutch and in English translation from Alle de Brieven. The Collected Letters at the DBNL - De Digitale Bibliotheek voor de Nederlandse Letteren

Leeuwenhoek wrote this letter as the dedication to Arcana Naturae Detecta in the usual flowery style for such dedications.

This letter is dated only with the year, 1695, but it must have been before Leeuwenhoek's letter to Magliabechi of 16 August.

Collected Letters, vol. 11, places this letter between Letter L-264 of 15 August and Letter L-266 of 16 August. To preserve that order, it is here given the date of 15 August.
