Friar John on his way from the Pope crosses the winter waste's of Poland and Russia seeing evidence of Mongol invasion along the way. In 1245 he carried a letter from the Pope to the new Khan who was being elected.

After a hazardous journey, in part escorted by Mongol troops, he was forced to wait months for an audience. Friar John returned to Italy with no Christian converts but with some idea of the Mongol army strength and with a note to the Pope from the Great Khan Güyük saying that they would invade again.
