Peel Agincourt Diary: 21 November

God blessed us on our sea passage and the seas were as calm as might be expected for the time of year, although one of the horses was killed during the unloading when the sling rope broke and it was dashed against the wharf.

Sir Geoffrey wishes to travel to London to see the king’s entry. Despite the king having reached England five days before us, he says we shall be in time for the king is traveling slowly, making many stops for prayer and the handling of royal affairs and such matters as have gone undone since his departure. Old Sir Robert says the king is mostly letting the Londoners have time to receive him right royally.
