Garvey, (Father) Eugene A.: Williamsport, P(ennsylvani)a
 to James (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Garvey asks that his copy of the Freeman be sent to Williamsport. He supposes McMaster has heard of the troubles in Williamsport, Bishop (William O'Hara) of Scranton removed (Father) M(ichael) Stack from his parish in Williamsport, whereupon Stack took the matter to the civil court. He claimed he was removed without sufficient cause, and asked the court to condemn the Bishop's action. He engaged as council Messrs. Price of Phil(adelphia) and Armstrong of W(illiams)P(ort); the Bishop is represented by Judge Maynard. The court closed yesterday, but the Judge has not yet handed down a decision. Father Stack's council tried to show he was fighting for his rights "in" the Church and according to Church law, and much time was spent in trying to prove that America in not a missionary country, but is under canon law. Stack has the sympathy of all the Protestants and a few Catholics, but a decision in his favor would be disastrous, and the case would go to the Supreme Court. Carvey will not speak regarding Stack's character, and does not know if the Bishop made a charge of immorality, but it he did, it was not used. Stack intended to publish in the city papers a letter from a back number of the Freeman relating to the authority of Bishops. Garvey's letter is confdential, but may be used.

1872( )
Peter, Sarah: New York, (New York)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Since she has left Newport, she asks that the Freeman's Journal be sent to her in Cincinnati. If McMaster has time she would like for him to call on her during her short visit in New York. She thanks him for the attention shown her request. P.S.—She has just heard of the death of Miss Julie Beers in Belgium. This is the name of a friend of hers who wrote on July 18 that she intended remaining in Rome for the summer. The coincidence of names worries her and she asks if McMaster has heard anything. Miss Beers sent her the paper on the Roman Schools which was forwarded to McMaster some weeks ago.

Young, Father N(icholas) D., O.P.: (Somerset, Ohio)
 to Orestes A. Brownson: (Elizabeth, New Jersey)

Father Young hopes Brownson remembers him. Now Father Young is preparing himself for the next life and is in good health. News of the revival has reached Father Young. He prayed that God would give Brownson many years to continue it. By the last mail, Father Young sent a publication to Brownson which was authored by one of the priests and he hopes Brownson will write a short criticism of it, which criticism will encourage the author to do more in defense of our Holy Religion. Two subscriptions have been forwarded and Father Young hopes to obtain more from his friends when he visits them in Ohio and in Washington.
