The Session asked him to explain what he meant by the charges in the paper now read against the Session. He answered that he meant that these things applied to Thos.

John Millar was asked to explain what he meant by the charges in the paper now read agt. the Session. He answered that he had an eye to no member of the Session but Thos.
