Document 2/139/88 (Dryb. Lib., no. 202A)

Pope Honorius III writes to the bishop of Dunkeld and the abbot and prior of Lindores, noting that the rector of the church of Nenthorn (BWK) has lodged a complaint against the abbot and convent of Dryburgh concerning certain teinds and 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let the bishop and another one of them do it.
