How many letters for the first one please? If you put the number(7) or numbers in brackets(6,6) it makes it easier for us to work out. Everyone buys different papers, too. Regards, Simon

Hi Fran,
My Chambers gives it as an alternative spelling of Scrine - obsolete - a box or chest in which written records are kept. From the Old French Escrin and Latin Scrinium, a chest. The word Shrine is also derived from the same source.

Hope you're having a good holiday!
