In Charles Fraser-Mackintosh's 1875 publication, 'Invernessiana: Contributions Toward a History of the Town and Parish of Inverness, from 1160 to 1599' (pp 214-215), the document is translated from the original Latin thus:

In faith and testimony of all and sundry the premises, we have commanded, these our present letters of collation or provision to be made thereupon, and to be subscribed and published by our notary-public under-written, our scribe and notary, and we have ordered and caused them to be protected by the appending of our round seal. These things were given and done at our palace of Spiny, the 20th day of the month of November A.D. 1542, and of our consecration the fourth year, at eleven o'clock A.M. or thereabouts, and in the ninth year of the pontificate of the Most Holy Father in Christ and our Lord, by divine providence Lord Paul III, Pope. Present there, our beloved men, masters, and Lords, Alexander Brand, John Brobne, notaries; Alexander Innes, John Schaubell, Jasper Waus and John Innes, our servitor, with divers other witnesses to the premises called and likewise required.

And I, William Wysman, cleric of the diocese of Moray, notary-public by sacred apostolic authority, forasmuch as I, along with the fore-named witnesses, was present at the collation, provision, and acceptance of said chaplainship, and all and sundry the other premises, while thus, as is premised, they were acted, said, and done, and took note of the same, I, therefore, have made therefrom, being called on and requested so to do, these present letters of collation or provision, written with my own hand and confirmed by the round seal of the said reverend Father, the Lord of Collation. Signed with my accustomed and wonted sign, name, and subscription, in faith and testimony of all and sundry the premises.'
