Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Oudin is delighted that you are pleased with his verses and promises you Saumaise's notes on the Anthology, among whose letters reaching me from Vienna are some interesting ones; but they contain some references to religion that will prevent their publication in France. H. is delighted to learn that O's. "Sicula" will not be long delayed. He refers to "Burmann's bucolics and recently rediscovered notes of Nic. Heinsius on Virgil, also the reprinting of his notes on Cicero's de Natura Deorum with Olivet's translation of the first Tusculana and notes based on the Leyden MSS. as expounded by Burmann. He brings to mention a further series of works, e.g., a recently recovered Vaillant History of the Ptolemaic kings; and he mentions other works by Vaillant: Olivet's 'History of our academy"; Boiven's translation of "the Birds" and Oedipus; 2 coming volumes of the collected works of Cardinal Noris, etc."
