Curiosities of London: Exhibiting the Most Rare and Remarkable Objects of Interest in the Metropolis; with Nearly Sixty Years Personal Recollections – John Timbs F.S.A., 1867:

St. James’s, Aldgate, Mitre-square, was built on the site of the wealthy Priory of the Holy Trinity, in tasteless style, 1622. Here is service on great festivals and on the last night of the year. And here, every Whit-Tuesday evening is preached the “Flower Sermon,” on a topic allied to flowers. The church is decked with flowers, and the congregation carry nosegays, and a bouquet is placed in the pulpit.
