Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 31 mai 1744 (de Florence): He writes in depression and declining health. He has deferred the work on Morellius owing to difficulties, viz., the nobiles socie in charge of the press at the Florence library have withdrawn the necessary books and coins, and I, being by nature one who always finds himself obliged to make alterations and additions in his drafts and proofs, have made Wetstenius impatient and unpleasant, so that he refuses interim payment and is very inconsiderate. He has not even granted Vaillant, the English bookseller’s, plea to him to commend my interests and to be permitted to sell copies of my Museum Etruscum. He has no cause to impugn my honesty. Now Europe is under threat of war, so I have decided to say goodbye to the Muses and consider my headaches and their remedy. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 104).
