Lettre du 25 septembre 1724 (de): As an interesting aside, his father told Bockleth a few days later, that he had found the papal coins, which were missing in the last catalogue. They consisted of 14 silver coins, 5 copper coins and 22 lead coins; in total, 41 pieces. Now, according to Olearius, it was proven that his collection was just as good as the Schlegel collection! No matter how Bockleth got in touch with Johann Christian Olearius, it was the son who made him get in touch with the father. It is interesting to observe that Bockleth and Johann Christoph Olearius, with one exception, never communicated directly with each other, but always used Johann Christian as a messenger. NB: The exception occurred on the occasion of Johann Christian’s nomination as a preacher and his absence from Erfurt (Library of Göttweig Abbey Cod. 691 104r–105v; Mayer 2020).
