Henry Machyn in London, England - 31 January, 1557

from A London Provisioner's Chronicle, 1550-1563:

The thirty-first day of January my lord treasurer, lord of misrule, came to my lord mayor and bade my lord to dinner. And there came a great company of my lord treasurer's men with partisans and a great many of musicians—and disguised and with trumpets and drums—and with his counselors and divers other officers. And there was a devil, shooting of fire, and one was like death, with a dart in hand.
