Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

8 August 1584 (from London): “Pertinacem meum quanti faciam, scripsi, opinor, Litteris superioribus. Certè amantissimi mei nec prece nec pretio. Tibi tamen per Demetrium nostrum misi senem illum, ceteris quidem felicem, solo imperio, non sua, sed sicariorum scelere, infelicem. Conditionis oblitus videtur Demetrius. Nam hunc unum multò pluris Facio, quam Balbinum, Florianum, Numerianum. Sed Ortelio meo Pertinacem longè postpone. Agam igitur amoris officio, potius quam pretio aut permutatione. Si (quae certè mea fuit conditio) Numeriano tuo addas Balbinum et Florianum, Pertinax meus tuus esto. Balbinum si non potes, alium dato ex thesauro tuo, unde non est difficile conditionibus istis cumulate satisfacere. Interim donec utrinque placeant conditiones Pertinacem amato plurimum, et serva diligenter; et me, qui te facio maximi et magnopere velim ut tibi viro praestantissimo opera mea usui esse possit ; idque persuasum habeas rogo” (Den Haag, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, MS 79 C 4 (080), f° 41 ; Hessels 1887, no. 140, p. 322).
