Pope Honorius III writes to the bishop of Argyll and the abbots of Kilwinning and Dercongal (Holywood), Glasgow diocese. The abbot of Paisley has related to him that the bishops of St Andrews and Glasgow have not [followed] the statutes of the General Council, which maintains that as long as the customs of whatever bishop, patron or of another is not hindered, the abbot might be assigned a sufficient portion of the profits from the priests of the parish churches. Whence, the abbot humbly petitioned that the pope cause this to be provided to the monastery and its churches. He thus commands them, having called the said abbot to be present himself or through a procurator, to provide resources and assign a sufficient portion from the profits of the churches to the priests, according to the statutes of the council, by papal authority. If all of the cannot be present to carry this out, then let the bishop and one other do it.
