-Lettre du 1 juin 1702 (de Rome) : « I find very little time to spare in this town, because the antiquities are so numerous, and the other curiosities so diverting, that a stranger has always something to employ his time about. I have the honour of frequently enjoying the conversation of Cardinal Noris, and Monsignor Bianchini whom I take for the most learned antiquary in this place; Signor de Ficoroni is a young man just coming into esteem, and is now publishing a miscellany of antiquities: : I must own I dont take learning to be in a very thriving condition in this part of the world; though I beleive this opinion of mine is owing to the conversation I have had with you, which has made all other relish but indifferently ever since; and I dont expect to meet a man of your generall knowledge and learning, till I return to Hannover, which I will certainly visit before I see England” (Kemble 1857, p. 274, nr. 125 and Babin 2012, nr. 208, p. 289-290; Callataÿ 2015, p. 312-313, II. 8).
