[HM] Leibniz letter to Bernoulli

On page 101 of Dickson's History of the Theory of Numbers, he refers to
a 1669 letter from G.W. Leibniz to Joh. Bernoulli (Math. Schriften, ed.
Gerhardt, 3 II, 1856, 601). Is this a typographic error, in which case
what is the correct year? Or was this Joh. Bernoulli perhaps another
relative of the famous brothers?
