51. Queen Mary’s Funeral.


In the manuscript already quoted, is an account of queen Mary’s Funeral. ‘The body was reposed in a mausoleum in form of a bed, with black velvet and silver fringe round, hanging in arches; at the four corners were tapers, and in the middle a bason, supported by cupids on cherubims shoulders, in which was a great lamp burning, After the service, which was performed with solemn musick and singing, the sound of a drum unbraced, the breaking the white staves of all the queen’s officers, and throwing 90in their keys of office, the tomb was sealed.’
