Document 2/143/42 (Dryb. Lib., no. 280A)

Pope Innocent IV writes to the priors of St Andrews and May, and the archdeacon of St Andrews, noting that complaint of the abbot and convent of Dryburgh against Emeric, clerk of the St Andrews diocese, concerning the church of Lauder (BWK), belonging by right to the monastery, and other things injuring the church. He 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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.
