Procedure: protest; asking of instruments

The same day compeared a noble lord John [Lindsay], lord Lindsay, and protested that no ratification, act nor grant passed in this present parliament in favour of [James Stewart], duke of Lennox, his grace, should be in any sort prejudicial to him in his office of admiralty within the regality of St Andrews, which the said John, lord Lindsay has and holds of the archbishop of St Andrews, but that the said office and whole right thereof shall be expressly reserved out of the said ratification. And thereupon the said John, lord Lindsay, asked instruments.
