Prayers said. The rolls called.

Procedure: minutes read; overture withdrawn and replaced

The minutes of the last sederunt read.

[Patrick Hume], earl of Marchmont desired that he might be allowed to withdraw an overture by way of act which had lately been presented by him and was appointed to lie on the table, but had not yet been read. The which desire was granted and the clerks were appointed to give back the overture.

Then his lordship presented another overture by way of act which was read and the question being put if the said overture should be marked in the minutes or not, it carried in the negative.
