Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 24 juillet 1621 (de Florence) : He sees many good antiquities for sale (medals, statues) and some MSS., but dare not trust his judgment to buy for Sir R., not being suficiently expert. But he has here learned friends both able and willing to give Sir R. satisfaction. On behalf of one of these he asks Sir R. whether before the Heptarchy there were Dukes in England, whether absolute or feudal. He asks as a favour that Sir R. would write a word or two to Mr. Selden or some other introducing his friend the bearer of his letter, and asking them if they will satisfy him in his request (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Smith 71 fols. 111-112).
