I have just found this interesting piece concerning
the person who carried the first (lost) Baresch's letter
Theodore Moretus (1602 ? 1667), an importatnt mathematician
from Belgium. The latter is the author of the first mathematical
dissertationes defended in Prague. His arrival in Prague meant
a radical increase of the level of mathematical studies in
the Clementinum. Moretus´scientific diaries containing technical
notes and drafts as well as his correspondence with pre-eminent
European scholars of that time (e.g. Kircher, Conrad, Riccioli etc.)
are reckoned among the rare documents preserved in the National
Library of the Czech Republic.
These diaries and correspondence may certainly contain some
clues on Baresch or even the VMS!
