Donnelly, Eleanor C.: (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She sends a contribution for the Ave Maria from the pen of a friend of hers, John Arthur Henry, who is a poet of unusual talent. She asks Hudson to forward a copy of the Ave Maris to her friend when his poem appears. She is going to Saratoga Springs as she has been ill and she uses that apology for not acknowledging the invitation to the commencement at Notre Dame.

He is not yet well enough to write the story of his journey but will send a letter he received from Fr. Tomazin hoping that it will aid the Indian Missions. Genin promises to send the fee for the Journal and asks McMaster to acknowledge receipt of the parcel containing the robe. He gives his regards to McMaster's Rome correspondent and asks to hear from McMaster soon.

Lambing, Father A(ndrew) A.: Point, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Lambing says he arrived safely and his brother was a little unwell. He has made some verbal corrections in the manuscript on Mixed Marriages, and a few examples will be added by way of illustration. He thought of making some comment on divorce, but it would have to be very brief. The pamphlet will be about 8 or 10 pages larger than it was and may have to be reexamined by the Bishop. He will forward it to Hudson by the 20th of July.

Callahan, John: Philadelphia, Pa.
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: New York, New York

The medicine had the affect to cure his boys, but one of them contracted scarlet fever even after they went to the country and now his father-in-law has the dreaded disease. He asks McMaster to send a package of Major Lane's remedy to John Finn, Smyrna, Delaware. He enclosed $5 for the last package and will pay for this as soon as possible.

(Cusack) Sister M(ary) F(rancis) Clare: Kenmare, County Kerry, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister Clare is sure Hudson will find space in the Ave Maria for the letter of His Eminence (Paul) Cardinal Cullen. When Hudson noticed her opinion of Christ, he gave it a wrong title, one she purposely avoided. Hudson called it "The True Opinion of Christ" which is the name of an old French work. If she can lay her hands on the Tablet review, she will enclose it.

 to James (Alphonsus) McMaster: New York, New York

Two days ago he received the certificate of deposit. Today he received the Journal and was surprised at Archbishop James Gibbons letter to (Charles) Ewing since it cuts short his hope of securing any support for the missions at Washington. He feels that McMaster has too much to do and urges him to restrain himself from overwork.

Stoffel, (C.S.C.), Father N(icholas): Notre Dame, Indiana
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Toledo, Ohio

He sent Edwards 35 copies of the Scholastic. The catalogue is progressing rapidly. Edwards may apply for any number that he may need. Stoffel has executed all Edwards' commissions and even went to see Mother Ascension. He has heretofore been greatly mistaken in the character of that person. There is some misunderstanding about the picture of Father (Alexis Granger, C.S.C.) provincial. Stoffel understood that Luigi Gregori wanted the photograph first, and that he would come down only when the picture was nearly finished. Edwards will do well to send Gregori a portrait of Father Granger, as it would be hard to get Father Granger to town and besides he would not take off his ugly beard for a photo. Father John O'Connell, a rival to Father Walsh, if not to Brother Raymond, (C.S.C.), has returned from Watertown. It is hoped the retreat will take place this month.

Ebner, O.S.B., Father Claude B. A.: Dakota T(erritor)y
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ebner tells Hudson to use the items from this letter if edifying enough for the Catholic readers of the Ave Maria. His name is not be subscribed to the letter, nor does he want the letter published as he gives it, but wants Hudson to transcribe it and then publish it in his own words. Fr. Ebner will gladly give more items about the Indian Mission. Two full-blooded Indians baptized several years ago were married by Rt. Rev. Abbot Martin (Marty), O.S.B. The couple received their first Communion during the same High Mass. Both the Indians and the whites flocked to the ceremony as it was the first time that an Indian marriage was solemnized according to the rites of the church. The Agent, Major James McLaughlin and his wife were also present. Abbot (Marty) explained publicly the ceremony of Matrimony both in the English and Sioux tongue, and hoped that in the future all Indian marriages will be performed in a Christian manner. There is another scheduled in a week. The happiness of all soon ended when Fr. Abbot departed for Standing Rock, (North Dakota), but he will be long remembered for the good he has done during his three weeks there.

Miss Emery thanks Hudson for his kind letter and also for the enclosed picture and requests another copy of the last Ave Maria. She is sorry that Hudson could not use the article on Emily Bowles and wonders if there are other Catholic periodicals that may be interested in it. It would be very easy for her to write for him if her spiritual trouble would pass away, and begs for remembrance in Hudson's prayers.

Gast, Father Adrien Colomb de: Lyon, (France)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): New York, (New York)

Father Theodore Brussard has some weeks ago told him of the recognition given in the Journal of the Work of the Five Places under the Association for the devout care of the places sacred to Our Lord, which was placed in his hands 35 years ago by the Cure of Ars. He is pleased to know that McMaster is the first to interest himself in this work in America. This presages two things: (1) It will be a source of encouragement in America, and (2) it shows a zeal for good things. He adds a third result will be a consolation for the entire church. Thus he asks McMaster to be the first correspondent in the New World. Father Theodore has sent a copy of the Manual. He is sending a second so that McMaster will fully acquaint himself with the advantages of the association.

She has mustered enough courage to make a beginning which she hopes Miss Starr, Miss Howe, Miss Stace, and other lady contributors will join. She encloses her article. Miss Meany is wondering if the Ave Maria would advertise in the St. Patrick's Monthly. The circular enclosed is one page of the St. Patrick's Monthly. She is getting it printed at the Catholic Protectory in Westchester, N(ew) Y(ork), in the same size and style as Brownson's Review. After Miss Meany receives the first copy the Bishop must approve of them as he was afraid to ask the Bishop in advance. Miss Meany is getting advertisements now so as to get the first number out by the beginning of next month.

O'Connell thanks Clarke for his letter of the 5th and the prompt acquiescence to his requests. The card will be much esteemed by the Bishop and the Ursulines. O'Connell is very grateful for the information regarding the distinguished dead. He had already written a feeble tribute but it was necessarily deficient because he lacked this information.

O'Meara, Kathleen: (Paris, France)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is sending Hudson her address for the next two months. He should not let her name appear at the head of the story in the Ave Maria as it will get her into trouble with Cardinal Manning. If she had been allowed to publish it in England she could have gotten any price for it, but she owes it to the U(nited) S(tates) to make this sacrifice to their feelings. F(ather) Denis has been taken to Rome and made a great gun in the order, much to his despair. His people tried to keep him by a petition to the Holy See but to no avail. Her mother is better.

Father (John) Zahm called at "McGee's" office and tried to give Egan a description of Hudson, but all that Egan got was that Father Hudson is younger than Egan had imagined. He would like Hudson to send a photograph of himself.

Inquiring at the bank, he assumes the draft was lost and encloses a duplicate together with a copy of the statement mentioned (To this is added a note in which Father Joseph Buh signs a receipt for $34.95 received for expenses for White Earth Mission).

Howe, Frances R.: (Chesterton, Indiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Howe reminds Hudson of a statement she made previously about one of her teachers who was English by birth and of her younger sister who still remains in England and writes for the English Catholic press. One of her productions is entitled "Aubrey Court" and as yet she had not found a suitable place to publish it. So Miss Howe wrote to the sister, Miss Amy Marshall, suggesting that she have it published in the Ave Maria. In her reply to Miss Howe she states that she would like to have Hudson examine the skeleton of the manuscript and if he likes it she will make it as Catholic as possible. Miss Marshall's style is good and is free from the commonplace and the high flown expressions. Miss Howe told Miss Marshall that Hudson would be both just and prompt in his remuneration. She tells Hudson that if he wishes to see "Aubrey Court" as she saw it, she will ask to have it sent to him. Miss Howe says that her sister, Rose, has sent "A Visit to Camaldoli" which Hudson should have by now. Miss Howe tells of hearing from Father Aegidius who mentions often how Hudson's letters help him in his loneliness. Father (Julian) Benoit obtained permission from the Bishop to have Mass in their chapel once a month. She asks that they be remembered to Father Granger.

Sherman, Ellen E.: Lancaster, Ohio
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Mrs. Sherman says that the secular press all over the country has published the statement which started in the Ave Maria, that the General gave his consent to his son's entering the priesthood. The General is violently opposed to it, and is greatly annoyed, and complains that the Church has falsely taken his son from him. Mrs. Sherman wants some brief correction made which will attract as much attention as the original statement. She knows all is in a spirit of kindness, and thinks it a pity that the General cannot see it in that light.

Lambing is about through with the revision of his manuscript, but will retain it until he returns from the retreat on the 27th. He would like to spend a few of these hot days in the shade of Notre Dame. He informs Hudson, confidentially, that the Catholic Parent's Friend is soon going to suspend publication, as the editor wanted Lambing to take a share in it and have it published in the east, but he has lost enough on the Catholic public.

Genin encloses a letter to him from the Indian agent McLaughlin. He thinks McLaughlin attempts to cover up Father (John B.) Brouillet and the Bureau from shame, and that the amount mentioned is the real sum contracted for by the sisters. McMaster is asked to publish this so that his readers can see the inequality among the missions. P.S. He thinks that McMaster could apply to the Government for the Sisters Contract. The Enclosure:

Two cooks were allowed for the school at a salary of $240 each per year. Father (L.) Bowin has gone to St. Joseph and is succeeded by Father Claude Ebner. O.S.B. Ageney matters are satisfactory but he would not remain longer at the salary $1200 were it not for the success of the missions.

The Catholics World in an article of June, 1876, mentioned a profile picture taken by a young artist named Wallace, and which the writer of the article considered the best likeness of (Brownson) extisting.

Mary Brownson, Orestes' eldest daughter was married yesterday to A. B. Worthington, a music teacher, and Orestes has lost the school which has been under his charge for the last 14 years. He has at home Ned, 15 years old, Sally, 13, Annie 11, Louisa 9, Rosa 7 and Charley 3 years. Orestes owes $300 on the farm, which debt harrasses him. It would do no good to tell why another was preferred to him in his school in which he has uniformly done well. It was to gain votes for political office and he belongs to no ring or society. To serve the public well is not all that is required. If his land were paid for he should rejoice at the chance to live at home and earn his bread by the sweat of a farmer's brow.

She asks Hudson to remember her is his prayers on St. Martha's Day as it will be two years that day that she has been in the church. She is the only Catholic in her family which is radical unitarian and partly pagan. She has been an invalid for nearly five years and is anxious for her health to return. If she writes for the Ave Maria again, she is going to use a theme more directly in honor of Our Blessed Lady.

Tomazin, Father Ignatius: White Earth, (Minnesota)
 to Father:

Tomazin encloses a letter to the addressee (enclosure not present) showing that Father (John B. A.) Brouillet sent him $34.95 of the money he got for the White Earth mission and did not mention the balance. Whenever it was that Stowe or Commissioner Smith told Brouillet to remove Tomazin from White Earth, he immediately acted as their obedient servant and wrote to Bishop (Rupert) Siedenbush for Tomazin's removal according to the wishes of those great rascals, Agent Stowe, Commissioner Smith, and Bishop Whipple. Brouillet wrote such letters more than once, and when Stowe broke Tomazin's door and robbed his mission, Brouillet and his Bureau did nothing about it. The Bureau also gave permission to Kemble, who was Inspector then, to employ soldiers in Tomazin's removal, and for this reason the name given it should not be Catholic Indian Bureau, but rather Protestant Bishop Whipple Bureau. In regard to the White Earth Mission the Bureau has not worked for the poor Catholic Indians on the Reserve but rather for the wishes of Protestant Bishop Whipple against the Catholic Mission. During the coming week, Tomazin shall leave White Earth with Manitowab for Washington, Paris, his home country, and Rome. He would like to meet Father? somewhere and hopes they can meet in St. Paul, (Minnesota) and have a talk. He will send a dispatch the day he leaves. (Contained in James Alphonsus McMaster papers)

It will make a larger pamphlet, but he cannot see how he can reduce it, and he believes it will have to be re-examined because of the new matter introduced. Bishop (Joseph) Dwenger's approbation is at the beginning of the manuscript, but should be kept out until the book is examined. The manuscript is written in pencil because he is quite nervous in warm weather. Lambing wants to know when the printing of it will commence, and how long it will take. He is going to have the pamphlet copyrighted, and wants the title pages sent to him so he can send them to the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.

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

Russell hopes that Hudson is over his illness. Russell thanks Hudson for his useful review of "Emmanuel", and says that the success of his "Emmanuel" is a surprise to him. He printed "Alive" from Miss O'Meara's manuscript and paid her for it as for her originals although she told Russell that it was only an improved edition of something she had already had printed in America. Russell has great confidence in the writings of Miss Mahoney and Miss Attie O'Brien as their stories are very tasteful and edifying.

1878 July 31
Howe, Rose (B. F.): (Chesterton, Indiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

She is too sick to write, but she wishes to tell him that they received a very sad letter from F(athe)r Aegidius who sent in his resignation to the Bishop because of pains in his chest causing him to be too weak to attend to his duties. She begged Aegidius to come and visit them or go to Hudson's place. Frances Howe sent to Chicago and saw Miss (Eliza Allen) Starr who is going to write to Hudson about getting Bishop (Silas M.) Chatard's pastoral for the Ave Maria. Howe has heard it, and thinks it superb, but all of the priests did not read it to their congregations. She begs Hudson to read it for himself. She is badly affected with tooth-aches and nervousness, and is run down and is afraid to have the tooth extracted because of her weakened system. She explains where they receive their mail now. She does not expect an answer to her letter. P.S. The Inter-ocean will have an article on her sister and her book as well as a review by Maurice F. Egan in McGee's Weekly.
