Henry Machyn in London, England - 14 May, 1554

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

The fourteenth day of May was the fishmongers' and St. Peter in Cornhill procession with a goodly choir of clerks singing and a eighty of priests wearing copes of cloth of gold. And so following, my lord mayor and the aldermen in scarlet and then the Company of Fishmongers in their livery, and they and the officers bearing white rods in their hands, and so to Paul's. And there they did their oblation after old fashion.
