Pope Honorius III writes to [Adam], abbot, and […], prior of Melrose and [Richard], dean of Teviotdale, noting that he has received a complaint from the abbot and convent of Dryburgh against the prior and monks of May and certain others of the St Andrews diocese concerning certain teinds belonging to the church of Kilrenny (FIF) and other things. 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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 the bishop and another one of them do it].
