Happy Birthday Mary Queen of Scots

The National Library of Scotland has tweeted that today is the anniversary of Mary Queen of Scots' birth in 1542. Somewhat sombrely, they suggest celebrating it by reading a letter written by her on the last night of her life!

The document, with translation, can be viewed at
www.nls.uk/mqs/index.html, whilst Mary's story can be read at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_I_of_Scotland.

Meanwhile, an interesting article on the current work and role of the National Library of Scotland was in Saturday's Herald and can be viewed at Power to the People in the Digital Age.
