This week's poser is the confirmation clause from the testament of Euon oig M[a]cTavis recorded in the Commissary Court of Argyll in 1676 (National Records of Scotland, CC2/3/1, page 361). You will find contractions and abbreviations relative to legal terminology (including on line 7 in communi forma which means in common form i.e. the manner in which one would expect), lots of minims to count and some unfamiliar names.
