Document 2/140/2 (ND, App., no. 657)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the abbot and prior of Dryburgh and the archdeacon of St Andrews, stating that the prior and convent of Durham have complained that the abbot and convent of Kelso, the nuns of Berwick, and certain other clergy and laymen of the diocese of St Andrews, injure them concerning teinds and other matters, whereby he commands them to summon the parties, hear the case and terminate it with a fit end, without appeal, causing what they decree to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named have withdrawn on account of grace, hatred or fear, they shall compel them, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot be present, let two of them do it.
