Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 13 décembre 1746 (de Florence): On the first of this month I received a message to say that the Emperor Francis 1st «motu proprio» has declared me head, of the Church and Baptistry of St. John’s at Florence; a great distinction for me enhanced by the Emperor’s laudatory words. Wetstenius will shortly receive folia of my new commentary on Trajan’s column, and I shall dedicate the work to the same Caesar Augustus in a brief inscription, and I hope Wetstenius will of his own accord print me at least 12 copies. I have written to Count de Thoms’ widow offering my assistance in describing the «monumenta» which her husband had had incised on bronze. Note that some of the «gemmae» and coins are not the originals. Among further items he mentions that he will send d’O. Maffeius’ Seals of the Greeks’. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 133-134).
