Henry Machyn et al. in St Giles' parish, London - 1 September, 1556
The first day of September was St. Giles's Day, and there was a goodly procession about the parish, with the waits and the canopy borne and the sacrament. And there was a goodly Mass sung as has been heard. And Mr. Thomas Greenhill, wax-chandler, made a great dinner for Mr. Garter and my lady, and Mr. Machell, the sheriff, and his wife, and both the chamberlains and many worshipful men and women at dinner and the waits playing and divers other minstrels, for there was a great dinner.
