Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 2 septembre 1730 (de Dijon): Abstract: He has given a friend who has left for Lyons the book which O. is sending for Mans, le Bret, Chief President de Provence; and has sent back to Paris your printed Horace. He is obliged to O. for the various readings from the two MSS. of Horace. He is glad to learn that Burmann is adjoining to his Virgil a greatly augmented Servius. He hopes O. will make use of the Canterus’ fragments of the Greek poets. It would redound to O’s. credit if he would add any newly discovered fragments. He is extremely gratified to O. for his supplement to Brouckhusius’ poems. He tells O. that the Latin tales are by de la Monnoys. He would like Desmolet’s treatise on the famous medal of Vabolathus. One of his friends has recently had the life, doings and coins of T. Didius, and an account of the gens Didia printed at Geneva. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 492 f° 66-67).
