Document 2/139/38 (Dunf. Reg., no. 216A)

Pope Honorius III writes to the abbots of Newbattle and Holyrood and Simon of Lindsay, canon of Dunkeld, noting that he has been shown a complaint by the prioress and nuns of North Berwick against the abbot and convent of Dunfermline and others of the dioceses of St Andrews and Dunblane regarding certain teinds and other matters. He thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
