Scots OTC text for Rory MacLellan

I don't know this gentleman, but his contact people asked that the scroll text be "Scottish."  So, early 16th century Scots it is.   I got to calligraph this one my very own self.  Of course, I foolishly failed to take a picture of it.  Perhaps +christin nosenchuk  can contact Rory and get a picture of the finished product?
