Document 2/137/62 (Melr. Lib., no. 186A)

Pope Innocent III writes to H[ugh] de Mortimer, canon of Glasgow; W[illiam], dean of Cunningham, and J. dean of Kilbride, Glasgow diocese, stating that G[…], persona of Maybole had made a complaint against the abbot and convent of Melrose and certain others of the diocese of Glasgow concerning the teinds of lands and other things. He thus commands them to call the parties together, hear the case, and to terminate it, without appeal, saving the privileges of the pontiff, and causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
