Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'[Thanks D. for his letter of 9 June. More engraved stones. Les Antiquaries Romains are often mistaken about gold rings. Two bas reliefs. Marble inscription about Abgar. Cippus inscribed [ ] CELLVS C F ISAVRIC. Vases. New finds from the Palatine. Bianchini.]
Le jeune homme heritier du Cabinet de feu M. Ant. Sabbatini fait la debauche et finira en peu de tems son Argent content. Personne ne veut rien ancor Lui offrir pour tout le Receuil ensemble. En cas qu’il separe les Medailles, je ne manquerai point de achetter le Brutus Rx EID MAR pour V. Gr. Mais jusques a presens mes efforts et celles que le Cardinal Alexander Albani a fait en ma faveur, ont été inutiles pour avoir separement la dite Medaille, qui est parfaitement conservée et surement Antique.
[Will send another stone. About one he sent three weeks earlier. Drawings. Payment.]'
