|To [John Kempe], archbishop of York. Exhorting him, who was formerly the king's chancellor, to come to the Roman court, as indeed a bishop is bound to do once every two or three years according to distance, the pope wishing to consult him about the reform of the universal church in the coming Council at Bologna, where the pope intends to be present in person. As he has spent a great part of his life in the secular affairs of kings and princes, it is reasonable that he should devote to the service of the church some part of the life which God has reserved to him.
