Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 2 août 1746 (de Zörbig): A very detailed record of his journey and places and scholars encountered. He was greatly impressed with the library at Wolfenbuttel, under Jacobus Burkhardus, from which he sends a copy of Photius’ lexicon with disparaging criticism; ... At Gotha he came in for a devastating tempest; there he found J.C. Schlaeger, Keeper of the ducal treasury of coins. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 493, f° 86-87).
