heart, and promise them the blessings of eternal salvation as the reward of the just. To those also who shall not personally go thither, but who shall at their own expense have'sent thither fit and proper men to stay there for one year at least, as also to those who, at the expense of others, but in their own persons, shall have undergone the labours of the pilgrimage so undertaken, we do grant plenary pardon for their sins. Of this remission also, we do will that all shall be partakers according to the amount of their aid and the intensity of their devotion, who shall give suitable aid out of their resources in support of the said land.

Given at the Lateran, on the sixth day before the calends of January, in the second year of our pontificate." In the same month of January, immediately after the Nativity of our Lord, the heart of Philip, king of Prance, being
