Pope Alexander IV commands the prior of Kelso and the archdeacon of Teviotdale, on petition of Master Simon de Claipol, rector of the Isle, in the diocese of Whithorn, chaplain of J(ohn) cardinal of S. Lorenzo in Lucina, between whom and S. dean of Wigtown, in the same diocese, a suit about the moiety of the said church was heard before the late subdean of York, who gave sentence in his favour, from which the dean, appealing to the pope, obtained letters to the abbot of Sauleset and his colleague, on which the official of Whithorn, to whom the abbot and his colleague, had committed the cause, unjustly revoked the above sentence, so that on the part of the said Master appeal has again been made to the pope that the cause, which has gone on for three years, may be brought to an end. The pope therefore orders the above prior and archdeacon to confirm within three months whichever of the above processes they shall find to be lawful, revoking the other, but if this cannot be done, they are to remit the matter to the pope, ordering the parties to appear personally or by proctors.
