Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 12 mars 1749 (de Plough Inn, Londres): He encloses a Saxon coin of King Edgar struck at York. He gives the cost of this and the small silver medal pieces, and the value of the Irish money of James 2. He refers to the Eustachius pieces and asks whether one or both are in C.C.C. library which he has minuted as being there among Stephen’s coins in his cabinet. He has the traders’ tokens of Oxford from Humph. Bodecote and John Tey, and asks him to see if these make our Oxford tokens up to 38. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Rawl. C. 989, f° 7).
