Likewise his majesty and estates foresaid command the clerk of parliament to insert and register the same in the books of parliament and to give the extract of the act under his hand to [Sir John Scott of Scotstarvit], director of the chancellery, whom they command to write the same to the great seal and the keeper of the great seal to append the great seal thereto. And declare that the same being so sealed and returned to the parliament of England is and shall be to them a full and perfect security by this their act given at Edinburgh, 26 August 1641. 'Extracted from the book of acts by me, as it is subscribed, Alexander Gibson, in faith and testimony of all of which we have commanded our great seal to be appended. At Edinburgh on 26 August 1641'. And ordains the clerk of the parliament in the inserting of the treaty in the act of parliament to omit the subscriptions subjoined to the treaty.
