Product Description

James I attempted to bring about a Protestant Union between England and Scotland but English prejudice was against it. He therefore contented himselt in this Speech with asking for four concessions of which the two most important were Freedom of Trade and the naturalisation of Scotsmen in England, and Englishmen in Scotland.
