The inventory includes mention of John Kennedy of Blairquhan and his chapel at St. Ninian's (1508). There is also the will of the jeweller and philanthropist, George Heriot (1563-1624), who left funds to Edinburgh's ministers to found the hospital which bore his name (now a school). In addition there are letters from Lord Salisbury, Fentoun (Alexander Erskine, Viscount Fentoun), and others, and including Scottish government letters of condolence on the death of Henry, Prince of Wales, 1611-1613.
In reverse orientation there is an extract from A Continuation of the History of Scotland by Way of Annals from the beginning of K. James VIth Reign.
This is a bound manuscript, and an excellent complement to the Writs and Charters section component of the vast Laing collection.
