Upon reading whereof, the petitioner was ordained to come to the bar and there kneeling to beg pardon of his grace the lord high commissioner and the estates for his said offence, to pay a fine of £5,000 and to continue in custody until the fine be paid or a valid bond given to the cashkeepers for payment thereof. And the Lord Blantyre, being summoned before the bar, the lord chancellor resumed the order of parliament, and by warrant of her majesty's high commissioner declared that his grace was pleased to dispense with the petitioner's making his acknowledgement kneeling, to which the estates having agreed, the Lord Blantyre gave obedience to the rest of the sentence, and was thereupon dismissed and allowed to take his place.
