-Lettre du 14 juillet 1744 (de Florence): Despite Wetstenius’ shabby stingy behaviour and my exhausted ageing state and laborious efforts on my Museum Etruscum, I will consent out of affection and esteem for you to yield to your plea that I should resume my work on Morellius’ coins, and will strive my hardest to explain the coins and to get some part at least of my lucubrations ready to be shipped off by Sept. 1st. Meanwhile please write and inform Wetstenius. There are many copies of vols. 1 and 2 of the Museum Etruscum stored in London; vol. 3 will soon appear. If these could be exposed for sale in London I think customers would buy at 120 Pauli, and Wetstenius might effect an exchange of books with London. You will realise the awkwardness and tedium of the work imposed on me when I tell you I have no book on coinage to consult except Vaillant’s, and I have had to return books I need to the library; but I will do what I can on behalf of this great work and my own reputation (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 105-106).
