Document 2/140/55 (Dunf. Reg., no. 268)

Pope Gregory IX, moved by the prayers of the rector of the hospital of Queensferry, commands the abbot of Holyrood and the priors of Newbattle and Holyrood, to discover which goods of the hospital have been alienated and return them to the right and ownership of the rector, compelling the opponents by ecclesiastical censure without appeal. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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.
