Document 2/139/87 (Robertson, Concilia Scotiae, ii, 233)

Pope Honorius III writes to the archdeacons of St Andrews and Dunkeld and to Master John, canon of Dunkeld, making known that he has appointed his beloved brother, the cardinal-deacon of St Hadrian’s, to hear the case between Nicholas, knight, and Brother E., monk of Dundrennan Abbey, both at the Holy See. In whose presence, since the said monk was appointed procurator only for the purpose of stating a claim and contradiction, as contained in the letters of the abbot, the knight humbly beseeched that the pope and cardinal should proceed against them as contumacious. As, however, the pope and cardinal were not fully confident concerning the premises, by the assent of the knight and the monks, they command at the discretion of the addressees, that as the abbot and convent had agreed a fixed termination of the appeal though they had not sent an adequate procurator – the knight escorting [the same] personally – the monks themselves should pay back the expenses, at the time the appeal was made, the knight being restored first, as shall be just, and the addressees should hear the cause, and removing the appeal, conclude the case.
