Henry Machyn in London - 6 December, 1559

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

The sixth day of December was buried in St. Dionis's parish in Fenchurch Street—the church and the choir hanged with black and arms and the place and the street—Sir Thomas Curtes, knight and late mayor of London and fishmonger and pewterer […] And after, to the place, and the mayor and the aldermen to dinner, for there was a great dinner. And poor men in gowns and the clerks of London singing. A great dinner for all men that would come.
