Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'My Lord Harley having before declared unto me his Intention of Buying the late Mr John Kemp’s Collection of Medals, Marbles, & other pieces of Antiquity Greek, Roman & Egyptian, for divers reasons; was further informed this day, that Will. Kemp the present Possessor of them, is grown greatly in debt, so that, in all probablility, he must part with them in a short time' (Wright - Wright 1966, vol. 1 p. 24; Burnett 2020b, p. 1234 n. 503)
