Henry Machyn in Westminster - 3 June, 1555

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

The same day was a goodly May game at Westminster as has been seen, with giants, morris pikes, guns, and drums and devils and three morris dances and bagpipes and viols and many disguised. And the lord and the lady of the May rode gorgeously with minstrels divers playing.
