Document 2/137/50 (Inchcolm, no. 9)

Pope Innocent III writes to the abbot of Lindores, the archdeacon of St Andrew and the prior of May stating that the prior and convent of Inchcolm have lodged a complaint against the bishop of Dunkeld concerning the island of Leverith (Cramond Island, MLO), which he had leased at ferme but who has withheld the rent and keeps the island in his occupancy. He thus commands them to call them together and hear the case, and to terminate it without appeal, 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth, and no letter obtained from the apostolic see shall prejudice truth and justice. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
