These papers which would appear to have been created in the course of business referred from a number of Kirk Sessions to Linlithgow presbytery, have been arranged on a `parish' basis, with some additional papers of a more general ecclesiastical nature. Where three or more items of a routine nature occur in a group these have been given covering numbers only, items of special interest being noted separately.
