Henry Machyn in London, England - 4 June, 1555

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

The fourth day of June was the procession of St. Clement's parish without Temple Bar, set forth with a great many streamers and banners and the waits of London with crosses. And in the midst of the crosses was the Spaniard's cross of the Savoy, and it was round like to that hangs over the sacrament, of crimson velvet embroidered rich. And after, clerks and priests in rich copes singing Salve festa dies. And were following all the Inns of the Court there, and after, all the parish with white rods in their hands, a great number.
