To John, Bishop.
Gregory to John, etc.
Inasmuch as we have enjoined on our brother and fellow bishop Paulus the work of the visitation of the Neapolitan church, therefore let not Fraternity shrink from assuming the visitation of the Nepesine Church, to the end that, according to the requirements of the Paschal festivity, whatever the solemnity of divine service demands may, through your operation, be in all respects fulfilled. Until, then, we may be able to consider what should be done with regard to our aforesaid brother and fellow bishop, let your Fraternity strive to show yourself so skilful and vigilant in all things that the absence of the bishop aforesaid may not at all be felt.
The month of April, the tenth Indiction.
