Writing to the countesses Beatrice and Matilda of Tuscany Gregory VII laments about the ambiguous attitude of King Henry IV citing a letter of Henry, in which he pretends to obey to pope. Gregory answers the countesses' question about a pact with Duke Godfrey IV of Lower Lorraine (the Hunchback) evasively and rather refusing.
