The authority of the synod had been generally applied, that is, that the case of the court having been heard, that the same bishop claimed to hold the land himself, [and] the contradiction of the opposing party having been heard, by common assent of all who took part in the synod they have promulgated the sentence, awarding the possessions and property of the land, and the men who remain there, to St Andrews and Bishop William, and imposing perpetual silence on Duncan. And so that the proceeding of business may be known in full, the attestations of whose authority they deferred the sentence are written below.
