Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 1 janvier 1699 (sans lieu): He has written these two letters to Vaillant and $word$, chiefly about ancient coins, in French because it comes more easily to them than Latin and is therefore a more likely vehicle for a correspondence. I have left it open so that you may give your opinion on the points raised. I am glad you approve «Divine» or «Sulphur», for if that ring is to be accounted a magic ring you rightly judge that «Sulphur» is appropriate seeing that sulphur was used for averting enchantment. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 478, f° 146-147).
