Document 2/139/33 (Pais. Reg., 8)

Pope Honorius III writes to Walter, bishop of Glasgow and the abbots of Melrose and Kelso, on account of the letters by Alexander, king of Scotland, and the bishop, concerning the prior and convent of Paisley who are at present without an abbot, to the danger of souls, the dissolution of the order and the detriment they may suffer. He commands them, by apostolic letter, to grant to the prior the resources to provide an abbot through the canonical election of a suitable persona, without prejudice of a foreign law. If all of them cannot carry this out, let the bishop and another do it.
