[I wait impatiently for Hickes’s Work, and I transmitted to Sir Andrew Fountaine Knt. some Anglo-Saxon Coins from Count Swartzeburgh’s Library, exactly taken in Water-Glue; but I have not learnt whether he has received them.] (Leibniz, Sämtliche Schriften Reihe I, Band 24 (Berlin, 2015), Letter 434, p. 776–81 at 780; Shelton 1735, translated by M.
