Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 2 août 1747 (de Florence): Please ask Wetstenius to send all the remaining descriptions of the coins and tell him to expect my commentary on Trajan’s column before the winter. I wish Thoms’ belongings could accrue to you, especially the ivory diptych which he brought from Havercamp. I have heard that Scipio Maffeius is now preparing a treatise on the electrical forces, and is displaying himself as a great philosopher and geometrician. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 499, f° 129-130).
