Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 19 juin 1724 (de): Johann Christian Olearius was instructed to offer these sums and another 1,000 Reichstaler for the coins to Anna Margaretha Schlegel, but she was intransigent, especially with regard to the price for the coin collection, as Olearius reported remorsefully ; It becomes clear from the correspondence with Bockleth that from April to June 1724, Johann Christian Olearius reorganized the coin collection of Anton Ludwig von Schwarzenfels (1678–1725) and made a catalogue before following in his father’s footsteps and becoming a preacher in Arnstadt (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 202r–203v; Mayer 2020).
