Letter CLXXI. 2567

To Gregory.

I wrote to you, not long ago, about Glycerius and the virgins.  Even now they have not returned, but are still hesitating, how and why I know not.  I should be sorry to charge this against you, as though you were acting thus to bring discredit on me, either because you have some ground of complaint against me, or to gratify others.  Let them then come, fearing nothing.  Do you be surety for their doing this.  For it pains me to have my members cut off, although they have been rightly cut off.  If they hold out the burden will rest on others.  I wash my hands of it.



Placed with the preceding.

Next: To Sophronius, the bishop.
