Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 15 mars 1745 (de Florence): He lists 12 books with prices. He also refers to works for which he is prospecting. He then comes to his dealings with Wetstenius, the printer, over the work on the Morellian Thesaurus describing his compliance with W’s. exacting requests for explanations of a coin of Vespasian, but meanness over compensation for his labours, and asking me for 40 pages commentary on Trajan’s column along with the whole substance of Fabrettus’ and Ciacconi’s observations for a mere 200 florins. He requests d’O. to see to it that he reaps a fair reward. Among further items he mocks at MS D’Orville 499, f° 110-111 «the clown» who at Maffeius’ instigation has derided my work on the Etruscan language (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 110-111).
