In reply to Arnoldi’s letter explaining that he has been doubly compensated for the pistolet he spent to get Antonio Magliabechi’s gift to Leeuwenhoek, Leeuwenhoek writes that Arnoldi should repay him by boat.

Letter L-354 of 28 February 1699 to Antonio Magliabechi

I answered him [Arnoldi] that he should send it by boat, and about eight days ago I received the pistole through the same boatman who fetched the pistole from me to Brussels. And this then is the cause why I waited until today to answer your letter, from fear I might inconvenience you in your continual careful activities.
