Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 29 juin 1615 (sans lieu): He is now in Paris and eager to be of service to Sir R., whose affection he signalises. He sends him some medals found in ruins at Bourges and Bourbon Lancy, but is ignorant of their value and he begs the loan of a book on medals which Sir R. possesses, so that he can send Sir R. more medals together with a coin of Henry VI. He describes the baths at Bourbon Lancy, their history, construction and the many statues and altars. He sends Sir R. a few samples of the mosaics. He is shortly going to Italy and thence will gladly render Sir R. any service of which he is capable (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Smith 71 fols. 98-99).
