Note 051
From Chapter 64 of the Decline & Fall

In this passage, and the first conquests in Europe, Cantemir (p. 27, etc). gives a miserable idea of his Turkish guides; nor am I much better satisfied with Chalcondyles (l. i. p. 12, etc). They forget to consult the most authentic record, the ivth book of Cantacuzene. I likewise regret the last books, which are still manuscript, of Nicephorus Gregoras.
