Document 2/139/70 (Dunf. Reg., no. 212A)

Pope Honorius III writes to the abbots of Melrose and Dryburgh and the prior of Melrose, noting that it has been shown to him by the abbot and convent of Dunfermline that the abbot and convent of Scone and certain others of the St Andrews and Dunkeld dioceses have caused injury with regard to certain teinds nad other things. He thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and terminate it without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
