Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 24 janvier 1730 (de Dijon): Abstract: He is inclined to attribute Oudin’s long silence to his ill health. He is glad to have had from O. Canterus’ collection of the Greek tragic and comic poets. He is surprised at not having received either of the two packets which O. says he has sent. He very much regrets that O’s. variant readings of Horace have gone astray. He has all of Vaillant’s books except his «consular medals». A parcel from Fontanini contains Dempster’s Antiquities of the ancient Kingdom of Etrusca and Gori’s Florentine inscriptions. He blames the printers for the delay over his augmented 2nd. edition of Cicero’s «de Natura Deorum». (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 492 f° 64-65).
