Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

February 1573 (from Liege): “Cum nuper istinc revertens Torrentius noster retulisset mihi vidisse se iam particulam tuarum in vetera Romana Numismata interpretationum, dici non potest quanto gaudio me asperserit, qui iam diu desideraveram huiusmodi quid a viro aliquo excellente praestari ... Cumque rem istam arduam, ut dixi esse iudicarem, Torrentium, priusque hinc ad nos iam ultimum rediret monui non hortandum modo orandum te ut diffîcillimum istud institutum prosequeres perficeresque, verum etiam adiuvandum. Habere ipsum nummorum veterum non exiguum thesaurum videbis, .. , auctorque ei fui ut suos omnes describeret, eamque indicem ad te perferret. Adieci et e pauculis meis eos quos Torrentius non habet, si forte quid et ipse conferre possim, id quod evenisse gaudeo, nam ali qui Itius meus incognitus iaceret” (Rome, Biblioteca apostolica Vaticana, Ms. 4104, f° 56; see Nolhac 1887, p. 438-439).
