Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

25 Jan. 1591 (from London): “Quod ad numismata D. Charci, dies hi breviores obstant quo minus ea perlustrem. Ecce duorum nummulorum icones, quorum eos esse judicas? Cum nummo uno aut altero habet ad te literas Petrus James, qui ante dies 8 aut 10 per Zelandium ad vos rediit. Ego nihil jam ago, perlego tantum D. Emanuelis historiam (ortographiam paululum emendans) cujus 6 primi libri hoc bimestre me detinuerunt; lentum me dices et merito, sed quotidiana imo horaria interpellatio in cause est. Interdum et aliquid percurro, ut ante 6 dies Erasmi Moriam, quam elegans ea!”; poem: “Ausoniae peteret nuper cum Goltzius oras / Prisca suo coemens, mittensque numismata Marco / Ascivit comites Sors illi saepe facetos. / Cumque per Augustam transiret Vindelicorum, / Obtulit et casus tum Belgam Goltzio Abelum. / Hi simul ad Venetum ditatam mercibus urbem / Pergunt: atque viae fabellis taedia fallunt. / Hic ubi perventum, tecto potiuntur eodem / Donec iter varium diversa negotia suadent. / Namque sacram divo Marco cum Goltzius urbem / Undique lustrasset, precio calamove coegit, / Omnia quae Marco Brugensi grata putavit: / Inde plagas reliquas invisit praepete cursu. / Quid tibi praestiterit taceo, monumenta loquuntur. / Tum loca solus Abel percurrens urbis amoena, / Atque forum visens structura jure superbum, / Illic pendentem chartam de marmore vidit / Pictura inscriptam, fecit cui linea nomen. / Quam rapuit subito spectantis lumina, imago! / Formae erat haec similis turri quam Antverpia nuper / Sexcentis gradibus pulchre deduxit ad astra. / […] Qui trinos nummos dictos a nomine DVCIS / Dando propalae, chartam de marmore cepit. / Haec mihi narrat Abel, qui nunc trans aequora venit / Anglorum dominam contemplaturus Elizam, / Utque simul videat felices pace Britannos” (Den Haag, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, MS 79 C 4 (112), fol. 48; Hessels 1887, no. 192, p. 459).
