Document 2/139/56 (Dryb. Lib., no. 84A )

Pope Honorius III writes to the archdeacon of St Andrews and the priors of May and Dunfermline, noting that he has received from the abbot and convent of Dryburgh a complaint against the abbot and convent of Kilwinning and others of the Glasgow and St Andrews diocese concerning rights and other things in the church of Lauder (BWK). 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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.
