The Lord Drummond persewit his mother for the hail tapestrie that hang in Drummond, as airship guids, and therefore to be deliverit to him as aire to his father; at the least, the tapestrie that hang in the best house; notwithstanding the Lords fand that he should have but ane piece onlie of the tapestrie, and that the best; and siklike the best pavilion, and no more, to pertain to him as airship.
*** Balfour reports the same case:
Gif he that is deceist have divers and sindrie tapestries, the air may not acclame as airship, bot allenarlie the best piece of the samin: And siklike gif the deid have divers and sindrie pavilions pertening to him the time of his deceis, the best pavilion allenarlie pertenis to the air.
