Henry Machyn in London, England - 24 May, 1559
The twenty-fourth day of May the ambassadors, the French, were brought from the bishop's palace by land through Fleet Street unto the Queen's palace to supper by the most noble men there was about the court. And there was the hall and the great chamber and the great chamber of presence hanged with very rich cloths of arras as ever was seen and the cloth of state, both hall and great chambers. And they had as great cheer at supper. And after, a banquet as goodly as has been seen, with all manner of music, till midnight, for they were gorgeously appareled.
