  4. See NAS, uncatalogued Hamilton Papers, GD406/2/M1/1/7, f.1r-v and printed as HMC, Hamilton Report, p.35. The location of the original of this act is now unknown and seems to have gone missing since the HMC report was printed. However, Thomson must have seen the original since there is a lithograph showing all the seals pertaining to this act, which is printed in APS, ii, between p.592 and p.593. The source in NAS, uncatalogued Hamilton Papers is a later summary of the act, an incomplete and imperfect copy of the original, in which some paragraphs are missing and in which the spelling has been updated. The missing paragraphs and the contemporary spelling as recorded by Thomson in APS have, therefore, been retained, despite this source not being identified. Back
