Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 23 février 1711 (sans lieu): Agrees with respect to the Cygnea Cantio. There is a gold coin of Allectus in Bodley with the same inscription, but on the reverse under the chariot is M.L. (‘signifying, it may be, that ‘twas of the London Coyn’). Sir A. Fountaine ‘is in London, & has been dangerously ill of a Consumption, but, I think, he is much better now, & I wish he may recover, & go on both with that and other usefull & curious works of the same kind, he being certainly equal to whatever he shall undertake in that part of learning.’ H. will acquaint him with B.’s coin. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Rawl. letters 39, f° 101).
