[Footnote 1:  There is a very amusing little book by one Henry Farley, written in 1621, on the subject of this visit.  In one paper he personates the Cathedral, and expresses his rejoicing, “I have had more sweeping, brushing, and cleaning, than in forty years before.  My workmen looke like him they call Muldsacke after sweeping of a chimney.”  An oil painting by Farley in the collection of the Society of Antiquaries, which we reproduce by permission, shows the houses built against the cathedral, and blackening it with wreaths of smoke, to which attention is drawn by this legend across the picture:—­

  Viewe, O King, howe my wall creepers
  Have made mee work for chimney sweepers.”]
