  1. NAS. PA2/25, f.166r. Back
  2. APS gives this title as 'Nomination of the Lord Liberton as commissioner to be sent to the king'. This has been taken from the printed 'Table of the unprinted acts and ratifications past and done in the third session of the second Triennall Parliament of our Soveraigne Lord Charles the second, beginning the 23 of May, and ending the 7 of August 1649' in The acts done and past in the third session of the second Triennall Parliament of our Soveraigne Lord Charles the II. The title used here is that in the manuscript. Back
  3. This replaces 'any redress' in the manuscript. A copy of this act can be found at NAS. PA7/6/122, which gives this correct reading. Back
