Hugh the dean, and the chapter of Glasgow, wish it to be known that there was a dispute between Walter, bishop of Glasgow, on one side, and the abbot and convent of Paisley Abbey on the other, over the payments received from the churches that the monastery possesses in the diocese of Glasgow. At length, by the will of both parties and the dean and chapter’s approval, to restore peace between the church of Glasgow and the monastery of Paisley, a settlement was amicably reached; that the worthy men, Master Hugh the archdeacon, Robert, precentor of Glasgow, sir Ralph, chaplain of the lord king of Scotland, Master Christian, clerk, and Philip of Partick, rector of the church of Rutherglen, ought, with prudent consideration, to assess and regulate particular payments relating to the churches of Paisley Abbey, having evaluated their assets; and acting in their capacity as worthy men for that assessment, they assessed those very payments with the greatest thoroughness; each side accepted and promised always to consider that assessment valid; and it was duly published by them and registered in letters in the church of Peebles.
