Script art handwritten script

Script akin to Diderot's letters to Sophie Volland


I am looking for a typeface to set the following quote:

"I write without seeing. This is the first time I have ever written in the dark…not knowing whether I am indeed forming letters. Wherever there will be nothing, read that I love you."

It's from a letter (roughly mid 1700s). I intend to get this as a tattoo, so I'd like it either professionally set or hand drawn. I'm a competent typographer but for this I need a true artist.

Can anyone offer any suggestion on where I might start?

Thank you so much.
