Excerpt from Henry VIII. And His Court, Vol. 1 of 2: Or, Catherine Parr; An Historical Novel Merrily chimed the bells of all the steeples of London, anuncing to the people the commencement of that holy ceremony which sacredly bound Catharine Parr to the king as his sixth wife. The people, ever fond of velty and show, crowded through the streets toward the royal palace to catch a sight of Catharine, when she appeared at her husband's side upon the balcony, to show herself to the English people as their queen, and to receive their homage in return.
