Similar to Sesde Vervolg. Note on blank page before the title page, in English (on right; click to enlarge): "This 3rd Volume immediately follows the Second part of the first Volume, and is not yet translated into Latin; So these three parts with the Second Volume of Letters to the R S compleat his Works." Since he did not publish more letters until 1718's Send-Brieven and the Latin translation of Sevende did not appear until 1719, this note must have been written between 1702 and 1718.
