Baron von Bunsen in Charlottenberg - 29 June, 1856

from A Memoir of Baron Bunsen Volume II, page 398:

Letter from Bunsen to Mrs. Schwabe, Charlottnberg: Sunday, 29th June, quarter past five in the morning - The town was already yesterday in festival-trim; every place hanging full of verdure, and triumphal arches of foliage were raised as by magic before each place of worship ; and at eight o'clock sounded forth from every tower the hymn of sacred freedom, the psalm of God-trusting faith. We were all in the garden to hear it.
