Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'… [long account of gold coins, about the history of gold coinage] … [ ] shall be above measure thankfull & rejoyced if any such coins & peices can be added as I hope an Half Crown \in Gold/ of Edwd 6 may. I fancy the 14th peice of James 1st may be met wth for Mr Cartliche shewed me some of them, but I fear Mr Conduit will keep them for himself & the Queen &c and so will not help you but this is yr list of I live to come to town again. I hope to get somewhat of Mr Cartliche.'
