Iames towards Richmond where being come towards euening he supped and reposed himselfe for that night Next morning being Thursday about nine of the clocke he tooke water to returne againe to London attended only with some few Barges of his owne followers and such Noblemen and others as accompanied him thither the day before Passing softly downe the streame he was seuerally encountered by diuers Lord swhich came to meete him on the way the Thames began soone to flote with Botes and Barges hasting from all parts to meete him and the shores on eyther side where conueniency of place would giue way to their desires swarmed with multitudes of people which stood wayting with greedy eyes to beholde his triumphant passage About eleuen of the clocke vnderstanding that the tide was falne so low as there would not be conuenient roome for all the Barges in his traine to go orderly downe notwithstanding his first appointment was to haue come to London about noone and dinner prepared for him accordingly at White-hall hee made stay at Barne-Elmes and there landing refreshed himselfe in an Arbour by the water side and tooke a short repast of such sweete meats and other things as could there be prouided on the sudden By this time the Lord Mayor and Aldermen of London with the seuerall Companies of the Citie honorably furnish't and appointed and disposed in faire order were ready attending with a great traine and sumptuous showe to receiue his highnesse at Chelsey their Barges deck't with banners streamers and ensignes and sundry sortes of loud-sounding Instruments aptly placed amongst them There were also two artificiall Sea-monsters one in fashion of a Whale the other like a Dolphin with persons richly apparrelled sitting vpon them who at the meeting and parting of the Lord Mayor and his company with the Prince were to deliuer certaine speeches vnto him In this goodly manner this well furnish't Fleete of the City receiued his Highnes somewhat beyond Chelsey about two of the clock in the afternoone and after the Lord Mayor and Aldermens salutation humbly presented and gratiously accepted by his Highnesse they turned their stemmes and so proceeded towards London obseruing

meanest in place first the rest according to their seuerall rankes successiuely ensuing and lastly the Lord Mayor attended with his two Sea-monsters on eyther side going immediately before the Prince and conducting his ioyfull passage to the Citie Next after the Princes Barge followed his seruants the Barges of sundry Noblemen and others which had met him on the way and on euery side such a confused company of Botes of all sortes fraught with beholders as it seemed the Riuer though then enlarged to her vtmost limits by the tides friendly aduantage was too little to containe them as likewise the land on eyther shore which neuer felt the weight of such an infinity of people vpon any former occasion Approaching neereto VVhite hall the King and Queene with the young Duke of Yorke and Lady Elizabeth stood in the priuie Gallerie window to see the order of their comming and that his Maiestie might take the better viewe of the Lord Mayor and Citizens show they were appointed to passe along on London side whilst the Prince in the meane while fetched a Compasse about by Lambeth and so comming to VVhite-hal bridge where the Lord Maior and Aldermen tooke leaue of his highnesse there landed his landing being congratulated with a loude peale of Chambers from the other side of the water which in their thundring voyces carried vp to the skie the ioy of the peoples hearts conueyed in the issue of these happy triumphs At his highnesse comming on shore his seruants attended vpon the bridge to receiue him making a Guard for him to passe thorow to the hall where he was entertained by the Lord Knols and the Lord Wotton Treasurer and Controller of the houshold likewise in the great chamber by Vicount Fenton Captaine of the Guard in the Presence by the Earle of

THE PREFACE TO the Reader FOr so much as shewes and spectacles of this nature are vsually registred among the memorable acts of the time beeing Complements of state both to shew magnificence and to celebrate the feasts to our greatest respects it is expected according now fo the custome that I beeing imployed in the busines should publish a discription and forme of the late Mask wherewithall it pleased the Queenes most excellent Maiestie to solemnize the creation of the high and mightie Prince Henry Prince of Wales in regard to preserue the memorie thereof and to satisfie their desires who could haue no other notice but by others report of what was done Which I doe not out of a desire to be seene in pamphlets or of forwardnes to shew my inuētion therin for I thank God I labour not with that disease of ostentation nor affect to be known to be the man digitoque monstrarier hic est hauing my name already wider in this kind then I desire and more in the winde then I would Neither doe I seeke in the divulging hereof to giue it other colours then those it wore or to make an Apologie of what I haue done knowing howsoeuer it must passe the way of censure whereunto I see all publications of what nature soeuer are liable And my long experience of the world hath taught me this that neuer Remonstrances n●● Apologies could euer get ouer the streame of opinion to doe good on the other side where contrarie affection and conceipt had to doe but onely serued to entertaine their owne partialnesse who were fore-perswaded and so was a labour in vaine And it is oftentimes an argument of pusilanimitie and may make vt iud 〈◊〉 nostrum metus videatur and render a good cause suspected by too much labouring to defend it which might be the reason that some of the late greatest Princes of Christendome would neuer haue their vndertakings made good by such courses but with silence indured and in a most wittie age the greatest batterie of paper that could possibly be made neuer once recharged the least ordinance of a pen against it counting it their glorie to do whilest other talked And shall we who are the poore Inginers for shadowes frame onely images of no result thinke to oppresse the rough censures of those who notwithstanding all our labour will like according to their taste or seeke to auoid them by flying to an Army of Authors as idle as ourselues Seeing there is nothing done or written but incounters with detraction and opposition which is an excellent argument of all our imbecillities might allay our presumption when we shall see our greatest knowledges not to be fixt but rowle according to the vncertaine motion of opinion and controwleable by any surly shew of reason which we find is double edged and strikes euery way alike And therefore I do not see why any man should rate his owne at that valew and set so low prises vpon other mens abilities L' homme vaut l'homme a man is worth a man and none hath gotten so high a station of vnderstanding but he shall find others that are built on an equall floore with him and haue as far a prospect as he which when al is done is but in a region subiect to al passiōs imperfections And for these figures of mine if they come not drawn in all proportions to the life of antiquity from whose tyrannie I see no reason why we may not emancipate our inuentions and be as free as they to vse our owne images yet I know them such as were proper to the busines and discharged those parts for which they serued with as good correspondencie as our appointed limitations would permit But in these things wherein the onely life consists in shew the arte and inuention of the Architect giues the greatest grace and is of most importance ours the least part and of least note in the time of the performance thereof and therefore haue I interserted the discription of the artificiall part which only speakes M.
