Mary of Scot's last letter on display!

Mary of Scot's last letter, the one she wrote 6 hours before her execution, is to be displayed for the first time in 30 years.

It will be shown at the National Library of Scotland later this month.

"The priceless letter was written on 8 February, 1587, to Henri III, King of France, the brother of her late husband Francois II. It shows her belief that she died a religious martyr and not for purely political reasons, as the English government alleged.

And although just hours from death, the letter reveals that she even thinks of her "unfortunate" servants and asks Henri to ensure their wages are paid."

It will only be displayed for SEVEN DAYS starting September 15th!!!
