Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 24 décembre 1703 (de ?) : « Eques cujus mentionem facis est mihi certe notus, sed non in certa sede commoratur, nec ejus consuetudinem colo, illum tamen data’ opera’ conveni et tuo nomine plurimum salutavi. Regum Saxonum nummos describendos curat quos ait se editurum » (Nationale Bibliotheek, Hague, 72 H 21, ff.11–12, at f.11 ; Burnett 2020b, p. 1606).

RemarksRemarks regarding the annotation. (fr)

[The Knight you mention is certainly known too, but never stays in a fixed place, and I do not cultivate his acquaintance. Nevertheless I have made an effort and met him, and greeted him in your name. He is concerned with describing the coins of the Saxon Kings, which he says he will publish]. (transl. A. Burnett) (fr)
