Henry Machyn et al. in On the River Thames to Westminster, and London - 29 October, 1556
The twenty-ninth day of October the new mayor took his oath and so went by water to Westminster with trumpets and the waits royal and a gallant pinnace decked with streamers and guns and drums […] And there was a goodly pageant and the trumpets had scarlet capes—and the waits.
