moving boxes (probably very simple) in Xpress

Probably very simple, but as a novice I don’t know how to do this:
I want to be able to select a box and move it to a different position.
Suppose my box is at position X 100mm Y 60mm
and I want it to move to X50 mm and Y30mm
Help is much appreciated!

tell application "QuarkXPress"
	tell document 1
		set TheBox to current box
		set MyOrigin to coerce (origin of bounds of TheBox as millimeters point) to list
		set origin of bounds of TheBox to {(item 1 of MyOrigin as real) + 60, (item 2 of MyOrigin as real) + 100} as millimeters point
	end tell
end tell

This should work, down and dirty with no error checking.

Thank you Jerome, it works nicely indeed. And it got me on the right track for more scripts that I was working on.
