Harmens stopped by Sloane’s residence the day before he left London to thank him for his hospitality. He promises to send word of any curiosities and offers his service. Gustaf Harmens (1699-1774) was a Swedish physician. He studied at the University of Harderwijk in the Netherlands. From 1735 to 1771 he taught medicine in Lund (https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustaf_Harmens).
