Fourth division

Because the date of composition of these letters is uncertain, they have been placed by the Benedictine editors in the fourth division, and in it they are arranged under two principal divisions: the first embracing some controversial letters, and the second a number of those which were occasioned either by Augustine's interest in the welfare of individuals, or by the claims of official duty.

Letter 232 From Augustine to the people of Madaura
Letter 245 From Augustine to Possidius
Letter 246 From Augustine to Lampadius
Letter 250 From Augustine to Auxilius
Letter 254 From Augustine to Benenatus
