Reaction is the handmaid of Liberty, the jealous chaperone who ever guards her virtue from licentious men.

The Great Charter

The Magna Carta tours America . . .

Lincoln's Magna Carta has been a massive hit in America – with thousands of visitors flocking to see the historic document. Lincoln's copy of the ancient text is on a tour of the US and currently on show at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. And, as Adrian Curtis reports, there are hopes the exhibitions will draw more tourists to our city.
 The charter is under 24-hour armed guard and reportedly insured for more than £30 million.
And it has been seen by more than 15,000 visitors in the first 15 days – 500 more than the total numbers who went along to see the document when it was on show at St Albans for a month last year.
