Regulations in regard to the public stilliards
A broadside from 23rd August 1796 by the magistrates of Aberdeen stating the regulations in regard to the use of public stilliards (steelyards).

These include the expected attendance and responsibilities of the Weighers, who are supposed to be answerable for any intentional or accidental error, as well as the rights of the Proprietors of any Article, entitled to a re-weight if suspecting a mistake. Lastly, all the weighing fees are clearly stated according to the specific weight.

The regulations are certified at the bottom of the broadside by a W. Copland, deputy clerk. A simplified coat of arms for Aberdeen features at the top.
