Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 16 mars 1703 (de Zell): “You may be sure that I shall not forget you when I am amidst my medalls, on the contrary I shall often wish for you to explain what I dont understand; the Electrice did me the honour to receive the poor present I made her, and in return gave me a most noble gold medall, which I shall alwaies keep as the greatest treasure I have; and should be very glad when you write next to her Electorall Highnesse if you would let her know how much I esteem the great bounty she showed me.” (Kembkle 1857, p. 316, nr. 133 and Gädeke 2011, nr. 179, p. 288-289; Callataÿ 2015a, p. 314, II.17).
