Henry Machyn in Westminster Abbey - 4 August, 1557

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

The fourth day of August was the Mass of Requiem for my lady Princess of Cleves and daughter to p … Duke of Cleves. And there my lord abbot of Westminster made a goodly sermon as ever was made, and then the bishop of London sang Mass in his miter. And after Mass, my lord bishop and my lord abbot, mitered, did cense the corpse. And afterward, she was carried to her tomb where she lays with a hearse cloth of gold, the which lies over her.
