[Warrant to the clerk of parliament to subjoin the form and words previously agreed to the treaty of London for passing the great seal]

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 this 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 declares 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, thus subscribed Alexander Gibson. In faith and testimony of all these foregoing things, we have commanded our great seal to be appended to the present letters. At Edinburgh, 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.

14 September 1641

Read to the director of the chancellery, who is commanded to write the treaty to the great seal in manner as is above agreed and condescended upon.
