"Whereas, by virtue of His Majesty's Writ of Error returnable into the House of Lords in Parliament assembled, a Record of the Court of Exchequer in Scotland was brought into this House, the Twentyeighth of March One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty-one, wherein Walter Grosset, who sues as well for the King as himself, is Plaintiff, and Thomas Ogilvy Defendant: And Counsel having been heard, as well on Friday last as Yesterday, to argue the Errors assigned upon the said Writ of Error; and the unanimous Opinion of the Judges having been delivered upon the Point of Law to them proposed; and due Consideration had of what was offered on either Side in this Cause: It is Ordered and Adjudged, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the Judgement given in the said Court of Exchequer in Scotland be, and the same is hereby, reversed: And it is further Ordered and Adjudged, That Judgement be given, in this Cause, for the King and the Informer."

The Tenor of the Judgement, to be affixed to the Transcript of the Record to be remitted, is as follows:

"At which Day, before the same Court of Parliament aforesaid, at Westminster aforesaid, came the Parties aforesaid, by their Attornies aforesaid; whereupon the said Court of Parliament, having seen and fully understood all and singular the Premises, and having diligently examined and inspected the said Record and Process, and the Judgement thereupon given, and the said Causes and Matters above assigned for Error by the said Walter Grosset, who sues as well for our said Lord the King as for himself; it appears unto the said Court, that the said Judgement is erroneous; and that, in giving the aforesaid Judgement, there is manifest Error: Therefore it is considered by the same Court of Parliament aforesaid, that the Judgement aforesaid be reversed, annulled, and altogether held for nought; and that the said Walter Grossett, who sues as well for our said Lord the King as for himself, be restored to every Thing he hath lost by Occasion of the Judgement aforesaid; and because it also appears unto the said Court of Parliament, that the said Plea of the said Thomas Ogilvy, by him in Manner and Form aforesaid above pleaded, is not sufficient in the Law to discharge the said Thomas Ogilvy of the Forfeiture in the said Information mentioned; therefore it is further considered by the same Court, that the said Thomas Ogilvy be convicted of the Offence in the said Information mentioned; and that, for the said Offence, he doth forfeit the Sum of One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty-eight Pounds, Seventeen Shillings, and Two Pence, of lawful Money of Great Britain, being the Double Amount of the Drawback or Drawbacks of the several Parcels of Tobacco in the said Information mentioned; and that our said Lord the King and the said Walter Grosset, who prosecuteth and so forth, do recover against the said Thomas Ogilvy the said Sum of One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty-eight Pounds, Seventeen Shillings, and Two Pence, by him forfeited as aforesaid, according to the Form of the Statute in that Case made and provided; and that he the said Thomas Ogilvy be charged, towards our said Lord the King, with the Sum of Eight Hundred and Seventy-nine Pounds, Eight Shillings, and Seven Pence, for One Moiety of the said Forfeiture, and do satisfy the same to our said Sovereign Lord the King; and that he the said Thomas Ogilvy be also charged towards the said Walter Grosset, who prosecuteth and so forth, with another Sum of Eight Hundred and Seventy-nine Pounds, Eight Shillings, and Seven Pence, the other Moiety of the said Forfeiture, and do satisfy the same to the said Walter Grosset, who prosecuteth and so forth; and that he the said Walter Grosset, who prosecuteth and so forth, have the said Sum of Eight Hundred and Seventy-nine Pounds, Eight Shillings, and Seven Pence, as his Moiety of the said Forfeiture, for his own Use, by reason of the said Statute and other the Premises; and that the aforesaid Record, and also the Process had in the said Court of Parliament on the Premises by the said Court of Parliament, are sent back to the Court of the said Lord the King before the Barons of the said Court of Exchequer in Scotland aforesaid, to proceed thereupon, and do therein what to Law and Justice shall appertain."

Adjourn.
