Likewise upon 8 November, his majesty, being acquainted with the foresaid petition, was graciously pleased to refer the consideration thereof to the parliament, whereupon the parliament upon 11 November instant referred the consideration thereof to the committee underwritten, namely: [William Cunningham], earl of Glencairn and [John Lindsay], lord Lindsay for the nobility; the lairds [Sir David Crichton] of Lugton and [Sir Thomas Myreton of] Cambo for the barons, and [James Sword], the commissioner of St Andrews and [John Semple of Stainflett, commissioner for] Dumbarton for the burghs, who upon 15 November instant found the desire of the petition very reasonable and thought it expedient that a warrant be granted to the commissioners for satisfying the supplicant of the sum of £430 sterling. And the foresaid supplication being of new again this day moved to the king's majesty and estates of parliament, and the same with the several reports and deliverances respectively before rehearsed being taken to consideration, the king's majesty and estates of parliament decree and ordain the foresaid sum of £430 sterling to be paid to the said Alexander Cunningham, supplicant, by the commissioners out of the first and readiest monies in their hands for the cause contained in the foresaid supplication.

Reference in favour of [John Sinclair], lord Sinclair

The which day, regarding the supplication given in to the king's majesty and estates of parliament by John, lord Sinclair, bearing that in the beginning of these troubles he was employed toward the northern parts of this kingdom for giving information to them of the reasons and grounds of the proceeding in reformation and advancing of the good cause, and bringing a regiment if it were possible from thence hither, which voyage the supplicant undertook and by God's assistance overcame the difficulties and passed through the most part of that division committed to his charge with such train and expense as was necessary for the public end and his security, and not only by true information brought the people to that conformity which has ever since continued them in quietness, but did levy and bring from thence a complete regiment, which yet does continue in the north for good use and has thereby relieved the public of the greater expense of a greater regiment formerly employed in these places. And seeing all these bygone troubles are happily quieted, the supplicant represents these to the king and parliament, desiring to take the premises and his supplication given in thereupon to consideration that he may have exoneration and approbation of his service and that such course may be taken thereupon as shall seem expedient, as the foresaid supplication in the self at more length purports. Which supplication being this day read in audience of the king's majesty and estates of parliament, his majesty and estates foresaid remit the same and desire of the supplicant therein to the committee appointed by the king's majesty and estates of parliament for the common burdens of this kingdom to be considered by them.

Reference in favour of James Sinclair of Scalloway and John Edmonston, minister

The which day the king's majesty and estates of parliament have remitted and remit the supplication given in to the parliament by James Sinclair of Scalloway and John Edmonston, minister at Yell, against Master James Mowat [of Ollaberry] and Ninian Niven [of Windhouse] and certain others, complaining upon the insolencies and wrongs committed by them in Shetland and craving redress thereof, as the supplication more fully purports, to the lords and others of his highness's secret council in the state in which it now is before the parliament. Wherein Master James Baird, advocate for the supplicants, protested for the expense of the witnesses and parties in respect of their long attendance here in town, and Master Roger Mowat and Adam Hepburn, procurators for the parties complained upon, protested in the contrary, and that their defences may be reserved and they heard before any witness be received.

The king's majesty and whole estates of parliament being convened in parliament as is before mentioned.

Protestation by [John Borthwick], lord Borthwick

The Lord Borthwick protested that the reading and calling of the rolls as they stand read and called this day, nor his riding and sitting in this parliament, does in no way prejudice him of that place and precedency due to him according to his birth rights and infeftments, but that it shall be lawful to him, according to his birth rights and infeftments, to claim place and precedency in parliament and all other private and public meetings according to the law; and hereupon asked instruments.

Legislation
Act discharging the custom of two and a half per cent and the impost of £4 on the tun

Our sovereign lord and estates of parliament, considering that the prices of all merchandise does daily rise to exceedingly great dearths, which is alleged to be occasioned through extraordinary customs and impositions, for remedy whereof, his majesty, with advice and consent of the said estates, does discharge all and sundry whatsoever customs and impositions exacted by the customs officers which are not allowed and approved by the acts of parliament, and especially the late custom of two and a half per cent and late new imposition of £4 upon the tun of wine, and all raising of his majesty's customs directly or indirectly without consent of parliament. And because that the too much troubling of the merchant estate and drawing of masters and mariners from their ordinary charges does much impede the trade, therefore his majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, discharges the taking of merchants', masters' and mariners' oaths in the matter of customs. And to the end that the subject of trade may not be restrained with unnecessary customs, therefore his majesty, with consent foresaid, declares that all goods and merchandise imported from foreign places to this kingdom and out paying inward custom shall be free of all outward custom, accordingly as is used in England and Ireland. Likewise his majesty declares that he consented to the act above-written upon this condition: that commission and warrant be granted to the exchequer to establish the book of rates, accordingly as the prices of merchandise now rule; and his majesty permitted the option to the burghs, whereupon the burghs, having advised, they made choice to be ruled by the book of rates regarding the customs and consented that commission should be granted to the exchequer to establish the book of rates, accordingly as the prices of merchandise now rule. In respect whereof, our sovereign lord and estates of parliament ordain a commission to be drawn up to the exchequer to the effect foresaid, and extracted thereupon for establishing the book of rates according as the prices of merchandise now rule. And therefore our said sovereign lord and estates of parliament ordain the act above-mentioned to stand as a law in manner and to the effect before rehearsed.

Our sovereign lord, considering that his majesty was lately pleased to condescend to the humble desire of his majesty's estates of parliament to nominate by their advice and approbation his officers of state, of whom his majesty's high treasurer is one, and that his majesty for the present is not resolved upon the nomination of any particular person to enjoy the said place but has, with advice of the said estates, taken present course to supply the want of a principal treasurer by a committee; therefore his majesty, with consent of the said estates, makes, nominates and constitutes John [Campbell], earl of Loudoun, high chancellor of this kingdom, Archibald [Campbell], earl of Argyll, lord Campbell and Lorne, William [Cunningham], earl of Glencairn, lord Kilmaurs, John [Lindsay], lord Lindsay of Struther, and Sir James Carmichael of that Ilk, knight, treasurer depute, his majesty's commissioners to the effect underwritten, and gives and grants to them, or any three of them, the full place and power of his majesty's high treasurer, comptroller, collector and treasurer of his majesty's new augmentations, [with all liberties, privileges, immunities, benefits and emoluments whatsoever pertaining to the said place of high treasurer, comptroller, collector and treasurer of his majesty's new augmentations], and that in as ample manner and quality as the same was in the persons of any of his majesty's high treasurers in any time of before. With power to them, or any three of them, to uplift, gather and intromit with all and sundry his majesty's rents, revenues, customs, imposts, casualties, commodities, duties and others whatsoever in any way belonging to his majesty within this kingdom or to his majesty's dearest son, the prince, and that of all years and terms bygone and yearly in time coming. And with power to them, or any three of them, with advice of the other commissioners of exchequer contained in his majesty's commission under the great seal, and according to the tenor thereof, to pass, compose and subscribe signatures, gifts, confirmations, escheats, liferents, remissions, tutories, gifts by forfeiture, recognition, wards, marriages, relief, non-entries, legitimations, presentations, tacks, rentals, licences, dispensations and other dispositions, writs and securities whatsoever pertaining to the said offices or any of them or to the power and privileges thereof, without prejudice always to the said Sir James Carmichael, treasurer depute, of his gifts of the office of treasurer depute, whole liberties, power and privileges contained therein, which are held as expressed herein, without adding or pairing to him in the point of receiving and without derogation in any sort to this present act and commission. And it is declared that the yearly fees and other casualties due to his majesty's principal treasurer, and especially the sum of £4,000 Scots money, shall be divided equally amongst the said first four of the said commissioners by the said treasurer depute who has right to his own fee and casualties by virtue of his gifts granted to him thereupon. And his majesty, with consent foresaid, ordains the lords of his majesty's privy council, session or exchequer to grant and direct letters at the instance of the said commissioners for answering and obeying them, their chamberlains, under-receivers and officers of all and sundry of his majesty's rents, casualties, customs, imposts and duties belonging to the said office, and that enduring the time of this present commission, which shall endure to the next parliament.

Legislation
Act in favour of minors regarding the duties of the lands comprised from them

Our sovereign lord, with advice of the estates of parliament, ratifies and approves the act of parliament made in August 1621, chapter 6, in so as the same concerns minors, and declares that the true meaning thereof was, and is, that minors having right to the legal reversion should be no further obliged than during their minority of 21 years of age but only for the annualrent of the sums contained in the comprisings, and that they lose not the right of the surplus of the mails and duties of the lands so far as the same exceeds the said annualrents during their said minority.

Legislation: private acts
Act of exoneration and approbation in favour of [Alexander Leslie], earl of Leven, lord general

The which day the king's majesty and estates of parliament, having taken to their consideration the desire of a noble and potent earl, Alexander, earl of Leven, lord Balgonie, making mention of the great charge and trust put upon him by the estates and parliament of this kingdom whereby he was made general of their whole forces and armies by sea or land in their late troubles, which now being brought to a happy conclusion by the blessing of God, he therefore craves that the king's majesty and estates of parliament would receive an account of his actions and deportment in the said employment and disburden him of the same. And his majesty and estates of parliament, finding the said desire most reasonable, and having examined the said noble earl, his whole actions and carriage in the exercising of the said place and trust, and having compared the same with his commission, do find and declare that the said noble earl, Alexander, earl of Leven, designed in his commission Sir Alexander Leslie of Balgonie, has worthily acquitted himself of that great place and trust put upon him to be general of their armies, and has so nobly behaved himself in all the parts of his charge as he justly deserves their true testimony of his approved fidelity, worth and ability; and therefore his majesty and estates of parliament do not only liberate and exonerate him of all questions or challenge which can be made to him for his carriage in the said place in times bygone, but also, for the full demonstration of their due acknowledgment of his worthy carriage, do give him this well deserved testimony and approbation, to be recorded for posterity: that he has deserved nobly of the kingdom and in all his actions has expressed piety, valour, wisdom and good government.

Legislation
Act regarding docketing and presenting of signatures

Our sovereign lord, with advice and consent of the estates of parliament, considering that by the 20th act of his majesty's dearest father, King James VI, his 10th parliament, for avoiding the prejudice that did then arise by the subscribing of sundry signatures and letters at the importunate suit and desire of sundry persons, his highness not being informed or timely warned to the effect and contents thereof, therefore his majesty, with the advice of the estates convened in parliament, did statute and ordain that no signature nor letter whatsoever shall be presented to his majesty in time coming except by his ordinary officers to whom the same properly belongs or who have power of docketing or presenting by their patents, as the act at more length bears. And his majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, also considering how prejudicial it is to his majesty's honour and the peace and good of his majesty's subjects that signatures of one and the same thing without his majesty's certain knowledge shall pass his majesty's hands in favour of several persons or that letters of contrary tenors shall be signed by his majesty and directed to officers and judges within this kingdom, the only occasion thereof is that others than the said officers or their deputes or others foresaid to whom the same may belong take upon them to present signatures and letters to his majesty for their friends and acquaintances, either not knowing the former signature or letters of contrary strain, or of set knowledge to reverse what has been done before, without giving of true reasons or information to move his majesty to sign these signatures or wrest contrary letters. For remedy whereof, his majesty, with advice and consent foresaid, ratifies and appoints the foresaid act in all the points thereof, and declares that it shall not be lawful or permissible to any person or persons whatsoever to present any signature, writ, letter or warrant to be signed by his majesty except by the said ordinary officers to whose office the same properly belongs, and by others foresaid having power and warrant as said is. And that his majesty may the better know what passes his highness's hand, and upon what grounds and reasons he signs the same, it is expedient that any of the said officers that shall present any signature, writ, letter or warrant to be signed by his majesty shall cause register the docket of the same in a register, and send the just and authentic duplicate thereof subscribed with their hand to his majesty's secretary, who shall be obliged to give his majesty notice and timeous warning of any prior deed different or contrary to the posterior, that his majesty may either refuse the same or specify his majesty's certain knowledge for passing and signing thereof.

Act regarding the delivery of the castle of Dumbarton to [James Stewart], duke of Lennox

The which day the king's majesty and estates of parliament, considering that Archibald [Campbell], now marquis and then earl of Argyll, in the month of August 1640, by the commission from the estates of parliament for the time, after some parley and articles of capitulation passed between him and Sir John Henderson, then captain of the castle of Dumbarton, did obtain the said castle and ammunition that was therein to be rendered to him in name of the said estates. Likewise the said committee of estates entrusted the said marquis with the keeping of the said castle in their name for the use of the public, which he has faithfully done. And therefore his majesty and estates ratify and approve the said marquis's proceeding and carriage in the receiving and keeping of the said castle, and hold the same as good service done by him to the country, and ordain him now to render the said castle of Dumbarton and whole cannon, ammunition and other moveables that are therein to the Duke of Lennox, to whom the same pertained and still pertains, or to any having his warrant, which is hereby declared to be a sufficient exoneration to the said Marquis of Argyll and his depute keepers of the said castle for the rendering thereof to the Duke of Lennox or any having his warrant as said is. And further, for removing of all jealousy or fear that may be conceived by keeping any garrisons or ammunition in the said castle, his majesty and estates of parliament statute and ordain that the whole soldiers, ammunition and cannon of the said castle of Dumbarton be presently transported forth thereof, and that none be put nor kept therein hereafter, and that the walls of the said castle be never repaired in all time coming. Likewise his majesty and estates foresaid declare that it shall not be permissible to the Duke of Lennox nor any in his name or having right from him to crave the rents of the said castle for the crop and year of God 1640 or any other year preceding that intromitted with by the said Marquis of Argyll as having warrant from the said committee of estates, but that the said marquis shall be only liable to account therefore to the committee appointed for the common burdens of this kingdom for the bygone charges of the said castle and the use of the public, without prejudice of the duke's right and re-entry to the castle rents of Dumbarton for the whole crop and year of God 1641 and in time coming, according to his right to be intromitted with by him or any other having his power and warrant, to the which whole premises above-mentioned the said Duke of Lennox and Marquis of Argyll, personally present in parliament, willingly consented.
