[A description of a vision had by Edward Kelley on the morning of Wednesday, 20th June 1584, as recounted that afternoon by the angel Ave.]
The sign of the love of God toward his faithful.
Four sumptuous and belligerent castles, out of the which sounded trumpets thrice.
The sign of majesty, the cloth of passage, was cast forth.
In the east, the cloth red, after the new smitten blood.
In the south, the cloth white, lily colour.
In the west a cloth, the skins of many dragons, green, garlic-bladed.
In the north, the cloth hair coloured, bilberry juice.
The trumpets sound once.
The gates open.
The four castles are moved.
There issueth four trumpeters, whose trumpets are a pyramid, six cones, wreathed.
There followeth out of every castle, three, holding up the banners displayed, with ensign the names of God.
There follow seniors six, alike from the four gates.
After them cometh from every part a king, whose princes are five, gardant, and holding up his train.
Next issueth the cross of four angles, of the majesty of creation in God, attended upon every one with four; a white cloud, four crosses bearing the witnesses of the covenant of God, with the prince1Δ: King. gone out before; which were confirmed every one with ten angels, visible in countenance.2Δ: 40 angels on the four crosses, attending on the principal cross.
After every cross attendeth 16 angels, dispositors of the will of those that govern the castles.
They proceed; and in and about the middle of the court the ensigns keep their standings, opposite to the middle of the gate.
The rest pause.
The 24 senators meet.
They seem to consult.
I, AVE, STOOD BY THE SEER.
So I leave you.
1 Δ: King.
2 Δ: 40 angels on the four crosses, attending on the principal cross.
