Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 14 mars 1704 (de Berlin) : « J’ai envoyé votre échantillon de médailles anglaises à Monsieur le Comte de Schwarzbourg et j’ai demandé des Ectypes de celles qu’il a. Monsieur Brenner qui a publié les médailles de Suède dit qu’on a trouvé beaucoup d’anciennes dans un endroit de la Suède, où il y avait aussi des anglaises. Il serait bon de lui en demander des nouvelles ». (Kemble 1857, p. 336, nr. 147 and Babin 2012, nr. 127, p. 181-2 ; Callataÿ 2015, p. 315 II.20; Burnett 2020b, p. 1606).
