Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 19 mai 1785 (de Den Haag) : « Vos medailles de Camper ont bien haussé en valeur. Il n’y en a que cinq, et il n’y en aura pas d’avantage, car le coin a crêvé. Je ne sçai comment, mais les Hollandois ne sçavent ni epurer le fer, ni tremper l’acier, pas ici du moins ». (Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Münster, Gallitzin-Nachlaß Band 8 ; Sluis 2010c, lettre 6.40, p. 121).
