Henry Oldenburg wrote to Leeuwenhoek that he would write at greater length soon

Date: 
November 12, 1676

This letter is known only from Oldenburg's note in French at the end of Leeuwenhoek's letter of 1676-10-30.

rec. le 26. Oct. 76.
resp. le 2. Nov. que
j'escriray plus amplement
au plustost.

Oldenburg received the letter when it was October 26 in London (November 5 in Delf)t. He replied on November 2 (November 12 in Delft), which means that it took six days to get to him and another week for him to replay that he would write at greater length as soon as possible (assuming "au plustost" = au plus tôt).
