From Mr Dominic Reid

Sir: With reference to your article "City pageant to revive historic Thames" (18 January), I should perhaps point out that it is the River procession that dates back to 1422; the Lord Mayor had already been travelling to Westminster annually since 1215. By the time the first River procession took place in 1422, the Lord Mayor's Show was already 207 years old.

Yours faithfully,

Dominic Reid
