"Writ on Tuesday in the Great Week" (Easter week, March, 1429).
Written on Tuesday of the Great Week of Easter, of the year 1429.
At the close of the month came the Great Week of Mourning, or Muharrem.
These historic eight days of fighting and victory are known in Tyrolese history as "the Great Week."
Many after-touches show us how the Great Week possessed for Holmes the same magic charm it held for Lowell.
