To Our Lyon King at Arms, and his Bre­thren Heraulds, Macers of Our Privy Council, Pursevants, Messengers at Arms; Our Sheriffs in that part, conjunctly and severally, spe­cially constitute, Greeting:

Forasmuch as We, by Our Royal Proclamation of the Twentieth and se­cond day of July last by-past, did continue the Ad­journment of the present Current Parliament of this Our Ancient Kingdom, until the Twentieth first of October instant: And whereas upon diverse good Considerations of great Importance to Our Service, We have now thought sit to put an end to that Our Parliament, by a Dissolution there­of; Do therefore with Advice of Our Privy Council, hereby Dissolve Our said present Current Parliament, and Declare the same to be actually Dis­solved. And that Our Royal Pleasure herein may be known, Our Will is, and We Charge you strictly, and Command that incontinent these Our Letters seen, ye pass to the Mercat-Cross of Edinburgh, and all other places need­ful, and there in Our Royal Name and Authority, by open Proclama­tion, make Publication of Our Dissolving of Our said present Current Parliament, and that the same is actually Dissolved.
