Noble Friends,

On this day in 1357, Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV laid the first stone 
of what would later be called the "Charles Bridge" in Prague. This 
beloved bridge still stands with its fortified towers, and is in daily 
use for pedestrians crossing the Moldau (yes, the same river of 
Smetana's symphonic tone poem Má Vlast, one of my favorite classical 
compositions): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Bridge .

For more photos of the Charles Bridge, try this:

Smetana's music is admittedly not in our period, though the legends 
behind his music are. You can go here to learn about about Má Vlast:

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
