Excerpt from A Calendar of Charters and Other Writs Relating to Lands or Benefices in Scotland in Possession of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

With one other document I will Close these illustrations Of the contents of the calendar. It is a letter patent under the great seal of Charles I. In 1634, granted for the purpose of correcting the irregular sale and restraining the immoderate use of tobacco, used, as the document states, on its first introduction as a medicine, but since SO largely indulged in, and frequently of such bad quality, as to not only injure the health but deprave the morals Of the king's subjects. To prevent which the king appoints Sir James Leslie and Thomas Dalmahoy to enjoy for seven years the sole power Of appointing licensed vendors of the commodity. These vendors, after due examination as to their fitness, will be permitted, for payment of certain compositions and an annual rent in augmentation of the king's revenue, to sell tobacco in small quantities. The letter directs that the licensees SO appointed Shall become bound to sell only sound tobacco, and to keep good order in their houses and Shops. The latter clause would almost suggest that the tobacco was to be sold for consumption on the premises, and that the smokers were probably in the habit at their symposiums of using, even as they may still, I daresay, other indulgences not SO soothing in their effects as the coveted weed.
