Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Mr Addison has been good Company for me of late; yesterday he went forwards towards Prague and, I suppose, upon his return will print his essay on Medalls, which is a very ingenious piece.' (Kew, The National Archives, SP 105/66; Burnett 2020b, p. 843 n. 178)
