Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 14 jan. 1702 (de Vienne): “I am extremely obliged to you for your recommendations for me hitherto, and I don’t in the least doubt that those kind things you have said of me in your letter to Magliabecchi will obtain a favourable reception for me, as coming from a man of your character, though I don’t at all deserve them” ... “I have been often with General Marsili, who is going to publish the antiquities of Hungary, and I have persuaded him to propose to the Emperor to send to Morellus to put that great collection in order, that lies at present in very great confusion“ (Kemble 1857, p. 260-1, nr. 114; Callataÿ 2015a, p. 311-312, II.3; Burnett 2020b, p. 1595).
