Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 27 octobre 1739 (de Florence): He relates the showy performance of Maffeius at Rome then at Volterra in Tuscany, where he cast mud at me, and then at Florence where he ransacked the Riccardi library. But he will have his work cut out for him in attempting to refute my answer to his remarks. You will receive this from Baron de Thoms. If only there could be a Latin translation of his remarks; you would recognise and ridicule a first class plagiarist. He (M.?) saw me at work in delineating the huge Etruscan urns, greeted me formally and then attacked me on paper. I appeal to your judgment. Maffeius’ work «de Gratia» sets out to show he alone is the first to have understood the mind of Augustus; but when questioned at Florence he was silent and denied that he had written the work. At Rome he and a French colleague had 4000 inscriptions on stone copied out. Among further items he refers to the recent edition of a first volume of a work on coins of large size now in the Vatican library, which Rodolphua Venutua described (illustravit). ...
