 to (Archbishop Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

It is with great happiness that he receives (Perché) in their modest chapel. He has been a father and a friend. He wishes he could demonstrate his affection and love more clearly, and that he could present him with a more spacious and ornate house of God. However, a fatal insubordination has prevented this. He asks him to accord this parish his blessing.

Egan, Maurice F.: Philadelphia, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Egan has had six years of experience writing for secular magazines but he has grown tired of this and now would prefer to write for Catholic periodicals. He has a special fondness for the Ave Maria and would appreciate being a contributor to it. Therefore, he offers to write a sonnet for the Ave Maria every two weeks with the understanding that he would receive some payment for his work. For references he refers Hudson to the Catholic Record and the Catholic World for which he has written a letter and sonnets.

(Genin, Father J. B. M.): (Indian Territory)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Genin sends McMaster the account about the affair of Standing Rock, (I(ndian) T(erritory)). The truth is, Father Jerome, O.S.B., in charge of the Standing Rock Mission, saw the notice in the Annals that $3000 had been charged in favor of his mission post and had been paid him. He then wrote to Rev. Chrysostome Foffa, (O.S.B.) who had previously been stationed at Standing Rock, and asked him if he know anything of the money. Fr. Chrysostome answered that he did not and refered him to the Benedictine Superior, Abbot Martin Marty (O.S.B.). The Abbot answered that he had not received one cent of the money and that the $3000 included the rations and supplies issued anually by the agent to the young indians under the care of Fr. Jerome. In a treaty in 1868, every Indian father is entitled to draw daily ration of a soldier, for each member of his family. The Benedictines of Standing Rock, without any aid from the Catholic Ind(ia)n Bureau, made an understanding with the Indian Agent, U.S. Government, that those Indian parents who had children in the Benedictine School would allow the priests to draw the ration for those children, while individual parents continued to draw it for the remainder of their families. This agreement extended also to other supplies except food rations. The Indian Bureau gave them no help in this at all. When the V(ery) Rev. J.B. Brouillet visited the Mission the priests and Indian boys lived in two houses which were like stables. Brouillet stayed with them for ten days and left without writing a word to them afterwards. Genin himself was at Standing Rock the previous week and talked for 2 days with Abbot Martin Marty and also Jerome and two Benedictines. The Abbot again repeated he had received no money but that the $3000 was the supposed value of the rations and annuity goods drawn by the Benedictines under the 1868 treaty. The priests themselves live on the self same rations-sharing with the Indians, plus a salary of $40.00 a month paid by the U.S. Govt. to but one of the brothers, as an Indian teacher. Thus they live on $40.00 a month, the 4 of them, 2 priests and 2 brothers, whiles the Annals claims they are being paid $3000 a year and promises them another $3000 for the coming year work. There are also 4 Benedictine sisters there who have set up a school for girls on the same ration plan as that for boys and they are allotted the same amount in supplies and rations, $3000. The mission is said to enjoy $6000 a year but this figure is misleading. Such things when put in the papers are really lies, creating false impressions and covering the Missions with scandal. As to the Devil's Lake Indian Agency the Annals claim that they founded this mission and secured the services of the Grey Nuns from Montreal (Canada). The mission was created before the Bureau was in existence, having commenced in 1867. Bishop Grace of St. Paul and Major Forbes, the first agent, were the ones who secured the services of the Gray Nuns, and began the Mission. Because there was a Catholic priest there whom the Indians trusted, the government made it a Catholic mission and placed it under the Catholic Indian Bureau. The Devil's Lake school runs on the same ration plan as the Standing Rock schools, as suggested by Major Forbes, the agent. In spite of evidence, the Annals claim that $4000 a year is annually given to the Devil's Lake school. That sum of $4000 plus the $30000 allotted to Standing Rock totals $7000 yearly but this sum might just as well have been thrown down as well since the money has never been paid to the Missions. Genin signs himself as a Missionary to the Sioux Indians ready to prove these statements in any court of law.

H(oward), T(imothy) E.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks Hudson to carefully compare this translation with the original work by Father Stone, since he, H(oward), does not want to be responsible for a printed translation which has deviated far from the reasoning or central thought of the original work. Not being certain of the meaning of several lines, he took the liberty of presuming what their interpretation should be.

(Howe, Rose B. F.): (Chesterton, Indiana)
 To (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Not wishing to antagonize the Cecilian writers any further and feeling that it would be prudent not to address them at all she asks Hudson to attach a footnote to "Aunt Winifred" informing them that this story was written many years prior to the formation of their society; consequently, Aunt Winifred's remarks could not have been spoken to the Cecilia-ites. From her own experience she seriously doubts whether those who advocate the sole use of Gregorian chant in the Church can distinguish this type of music from dramatic music. She herself finds Cecilia music pleasant to hear but she believes that opposition develops as a result of national feelings. Being that Cecilia music is essentially German choral preferences for their own national music make it very difficult for people of Irish and Italian ancestry to approve of it. She sympathizes with the position of the Irish. (Letter incomplete.)

 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She acknowledges receipt of a draft from the Ave Maria. A French Sister brought her a copy of the journal, Rosier de Marie. Though this nun is eighty years old she still retains the spirit of one much younger than she is. Howe who has been ill of late asks Hudson to see that her ex voto is well taken care of.
