Genin, Father J.B.M.: Duluth, (Minnesota)
 to J(ame)s (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

It is but a few days since the letter of Father (Ignatius) Tomazin (Sr.) appeared in the Freeman's Journal, and already the letter has procured the good Father some $34 from the amount which was announced in Father Brouillet's Annals. Genin believes that the whole matter could bear investigation and so he encloses a copy of the letter which Father J. E. Brouillet has sent to Bishop (Rupert) Siedenbush of (Northern Minnesota) and also the letter which Fr. Tomazin has written to himself, Genin, on the matter. (Enclosures not present). P. S.—- Genin asks if something is the matter since McMaster has not written him.

Borgess, C(asper) H., Bishop of Detroit: Traverse City, (Michigan)
 to Archbishop (John Baptist Purcell): (of Cincinnati, Ohio)

He was unable to answer to Purcell's last letter because he has been home only six days since Apr. 29. He will finish this Confirmation tour in Sept. He gives Purcell his consent to do what he wishes with Mr. Dickhaus, but Borgess does not intend to ordain him under the charges of Father (Francis J.) Pabisch. Card(inal John) Siemoni advises him to reinstate Father D(esiderius) Callaert, since his reasons for removing him are not sufficient. Like Pabisch, Siemoni passes judgment in the case without asking his defense. What does Purcell advise him to do? The papers just today brought the news that Card(inal Alexander) Franchi had died. He asks Purcell to offer a momento for the repose of the soul of his only brother who died July 14.

 to F(athe)r. (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He hopes of that his delay caused by being away from home in returning the proof sheets did not too greatly inconvenience Hudson. P.S. He proposes writing a short series of articles defining the positions of Catholics in regard to public morality. Since the language used in attacking certain amusements and illustrated papers will of necessity be frank and outspoken he wonders whether the story would be suitable for the Ave Maria. When he completes an outline of the proposed articles he will send it to Hudson for consideration in relation to its suitability for the Ave Maria.

Robot, O.S.B., Father Isidore: Overlin, Indian Territory
 to James (Alphonsus) McMaster: New York, New York

McMaster's letter of last July just came to hand because of his absence. He is overjoyed at the news that Pope Pius IX has given him a missionary chapel. Father Muardi's life must be published this year at any cost, for he believes it will have a salutary influence on both sexes in this country as it did in France. Several bishops in France wrote to the Sacred Congregation commending the introduction of his course. If McMaster sees John (Gilmary) Shea he is requested to ask him about Robot's letter and that he answer it when he is strong enough to write. The Indians of his territory have given him a section of land to be used in establishing a Catholic Mission and he wants the donation legalized by the commissioner of Indian affairs so he appeals to McMaster to help him in this matter.
