  2. NAS, uncatalogued Hamilton Papers, GD406/2/M9/325, ff.1-2. While Thomson cites his source as coming from the Hamilton Archive, the version of this document in APS has differences from the Hamilton manuscript consulted for RPS, as will be noted. See CSP Scot., i, no. 885, pp.465-6 for another version of this commission enclosed in William Maitland of Lethington's letter to William Cecil, lord Burghly, secretary of state for England, with slightly different signatories. Also discussed by J. Goodare in 'The Scottish Parliamentary Records, 1560-1603' in Historical Research, vol.72, no.179 (October 1999), p.249. Back
