Boniface VIII writes to Nicholas, bishop of Dunblane, noting how the church, through the death of Alpin, bishop of Dunblane, has been without a pastor, and how the dean and chapter made divers elections, including that of Nicholas, then abbot of Arbroath, who came personally to Rome on the business, not through a procurator, while the others elected did not, and he having resigned, the pope appoints him, and orders him to be consecrated by Theodoric bishop of Palestrina. Concurrent letters to the dean and chapter of Dunblane.
