Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 7 mai 1733 (sans lieu): ‘A few days since happened a great loss to art and learning in the destruction of a great part of Sir Andrew Fountain’s collection of paintings and medals by a dreadful fire at White’s chocolate house near St. James Palace. It is surprising a man, who has a handsom House, should keep a valuable treasure at a public House, if not with a design to expose his paintings and draw in purchasers.’ (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Rawl. letters 27c, f° 172).
