The Traveler… the Czar gets married… loose lips…

Today’s travels took me to The London Gazette of April 5, 1712 [1] where I found the Czar of Mosco (Moscow) has publicly solemnized his wedding with his Empress [2]Catherina Alexewna. The wedding had to be deferred for some time by reason his Czarish Majesty’s “making the Campaign the last Summer.” The article provides details of the wedding.

Another article on the front page is of the Suedes (Swedes) making advancement into Pomerania before the Danes could hinder them. Two officers of the Swedish Fleet had been condemned “to have their Heads struck off, for having held a Correspondence with the Danes, and their Father, who was privy to these Actions of his Sons, and did not discover them, is confin’d to a perpetual Imprisonment…” There are times it is just better to keep the lips sealed.  Whereas some have been known to sink ships, this is even worse…
