  4. NAS, PA5/6(1), f. 39r-40r (cited); Drummond, f. 262v-264r; Colville, f. 292r-293v; Malcolm, f. 165r-166r; 1566 acts, f. 36r-37v. Note, there are interesting differences in the text found in PA5/6(1) and the other texts which provide the sources for the parliamentary acts in the fifteenth century. PA5/6(1) appears to contain a more exact version of the acts passed in 1455, while Drummond, Colville, etc., may provide a slightly edited and later version after the immediate fear of war in 1455 had passed. Act 1455/10/8 is only found in PA5/6(1), and might be considered 'repealed' by the time the later editions were made. This supports the suggestion that PA5/6(1) represents the closest version available of the acts to the lost 'official' version for the late 1450s. Thus PA5/6(1)'s version of 1455/10/5 reads: 'Item that na man nor woman pass in Inglande without leif of the king, the wardane or of thame that he giffis powere to in that part in tym to cum wndir the payne of tresone'. While Drummond reads (followed by Colville, etc.): 'Item that man na woman pass in Ingland without leif of the king, the wardain or of thaim that he giffis power to in that part in tym of weir undir the pain of tresoun'. Note also the different beginnings to act 1455/10/13. Thus PA5/6(1) might be suggested to record a version of the acts written to meet the needs of an immediate threat in 1455, while Drummond is edited to address the more general arrangements needed for any threat of war that might occur in the future, while allowing normal communications with England to exist at other times.
