Henry Machyn in Whitehall - 30 November, 1557
The same day the Queen's Grace and my lord cardinal came from St. James unto Whitehall. And there they heard Mass. And after Mass done and there were all the bishops and the judges and sergeants of the law. And there were created Sir Thomas Tresham Lord of St. John's of England and four knights of the Rhodes made. And the same time my lord abbot went in procession in his miter. And all the monks and clerks singing Salve festa dies and round about the abbey. And my lord abbot sang the Mass.
