Gronovius, July 28, 1761, in Latin (fol. 1); among the rest are six from baron van Leyden, 1789-1802, in Dutch (fols. 9, 18a, 25), and two drafts of Latin ones from Te Water himself to the baron, Feb. 15, 1790 (fol. 16), and to Nic. Parquoy, Jan. 13, 1802 (fol. 23).

The collations, etc. are of a Brussels MS., made in 1815 by Ch. van Hulthem (fol. 88, cf. 31a, 39v, 205), of a Brussels MS. of Minucius Felix made by the same (fol. 128), copy of notes by N.
