The twenty-second day of February was Shrove Monday. At Charing Cross there was a man carried by four men, and before him a bagpipe playing, a shawm, and a drum playing. And a twenty links burning about him because his next neighbor's wife did beat her husband. Therefore it ordered that his next neighbor shall ride about the place.
