¶ A proclamation, addressed to the Scots, of dual importance: the first, in modern parlance, a tax code, spelling out the justification for the collection, who is to be taxed and how and when it is to be collected. And the second, and perhaps most important purpose, is the suggestion by the King that England and Scotland share one church.
