Canedo, Margarita J.: (Goshen, Ind. )
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Canedo has worked all night to write what she is sending and her hand trembles. She has another translation almost ready. She would like to have the money for both as she has to pay some bills, the reason she has worked so hard. Hudson will have the other soon unless the overwork kills her.

C(assidy), M(ary) E.: Cottownwood, M(iss)o(uri)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has read in the Ave Maria how the Benedictine brothers of St. Meinrad, Ind. have sacrificed themselves for the sake of our red men of the west, and to encourage the whites to settle upon the vacant lands. The rich land is deserving more attention from our priests than it receives. The protestants come, but the Catholics pass it by. People would rejoice if some of those fathers would come among their midst. Their country is not Catholic and wonders why not make it so. The people are industrious but ignorant in regard to religion. The land is improved and could be purchased reasonably. She hopes she will hear of Rt. Rev. Abbot (Martin) Marty on his perilous mission. She once resided near St. Meinrad, Ind. and enjoys reading of the brothers in the Ave Maria.

(Cusack), Sister Mary Francis Clare: Kenmare, Co(unty) Kerry, (Ireland)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister Clare encloses a letter to print in the Ave Maria and also printed reports of the district for which she is appealing. The life of thousands may depend on this printing and she would like to receive a copy of the paper in which it is printed. (There is a printed report entitled "A Cry For Help From Ireland" which is royal 8 vo. There is also the handwritten manuscript titled "Distress in Ireland" written by Sister Clare to the editor. Also included is a long newspaper clipping on the distress in the Southwest of Ireland, Kenmare, and district which contains a letter from Daniel M'Carthy, Bishop of Kerry, to Sister Mary Francis Clare.)

Dorsey, Anna H(anson): Washington, D. C.
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter received with enclosure. She thanks Hudson for his expression of appreciation of her work. Young Catholics need relaxation and amusement. If this is not provided inside the Church they will seek it on forbidden grounds. The Mediaeval literature and the lives of the Saints will hold the attention of some readers, but in order to hold the attention of the young she has endeavoured to blend religion with strong dramatic incident. She believes she is the only writer of Catholic fiction since Mrs. Sadlier quit writing. She was not hurt by Hudson's letter. She shall resume writing after a rest. She shall never again write for the Ave Maria due to a letter written by Mother Angela Gillespie to Father General (Edward Sorin) which was not intended for her to see, but Sorin sent it to her, endorsing Mother Angela's opinion. Never again will she be subject to such treatment. Neither of them know about the world outside of their "Order" work and have no idea what type of reading is demanded by Catholics, than she did of Sanscrit when she was writing "Adrift." Mother Angela told her to conclude her story at once and that it was better suited for a sensational secular paper rather than the Ave Maria. Mrs. Dorsey wrote to both Mother Angela and Father Sorin and said sharply what she had to say. She does not want Hudson to have any feeling on the subject and will never again write for the Ave Maria unless on certain conditions which are given. The infamous slip from the "St. Francis Monitor" hurt her terribly and is false from the beginning to the end. She has never been in debt. There are other Mrs. Dorseys who write and perhaps she was confused with them. She asks Hudson to make a notice of this falsehood in the Ave Maria. Some of her relations read the other Dorsey's work thinking it was her writings. She will write to the editor of the "Catholic Monitor" and set him straight. Imagine the harm befallen on her through her readers of the past.

Dorsey, Anna Hanson: (Washington, D.C.)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The long silence is due to the illness of her daughter Nellie. It has pleased Our Lord that the last years of her life should be filled for her daughter's health, and for the conversion and restoration to health of her son-in-law who has heart disease. The Sadlier's are to bring out "Tangled Paths" if she agrees to the terms given. They are going to bring it out for $.75 a copy and she is to receive 8.07 a copy. What Hudson said about Father Reville impressed her and whatever was the cause of offense, it should have been handled by his superiors. She would not be surprised to hear of him leaving the order. She is delighted with "Cyril's Vow." Who is writing it? She has been thrown with so many like Cyril, especially her uncle, a Doctor of Divinity, who has grown old in his delusion that fasting, belief in the real presence, and purgatory constitute a true Catholic. She has protestant relatives, who she is sure have never committed a mortal sin, who make her ashamed of herself for her barren life. They pity her for her romantic errors. She can so well realize the Squire's panic over the pretty Sister of Charity and the St. Giles performances. She has been compelled to adopt her full name on account of another Mrs. A. H. Dorsey who writes. She imagines she is indebted to her for that scandalous article that Hudson sent from the St. Francisco Catholic Monitor. There is also a Mrs. S. H. Dorsey who has written sensational novels which she has been credited with. She asks Hudson to use her full name when speaking of her. Mrs. Dorsey is descended from Gustavus Vasa, his daughter Margaret Vasa being her ancestress. Margaret's husband died fighting for religious liberty by the side of Custavus Adolphus.

D(orsey), A(nna) H(anson): (Washington, D. C.)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

In a P.S. Mrs. Dorsey sees in the Ave Maria where Hudson just received the book "Tangled Paths". Hudson will probably write in a review of it. She asks Hudson to send her any notices that he sees in his exchanges.

Fafard, Father Edw(ard): (Leves, Quebec)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The article headed "A pilgrimage to a new shrine of the Sacred Heart" in the Ave Maria gave Fafard much pleasure. He thanks Hudson for the pious calls brought upon by the article. The work of the erection is still going on and will soon be completed. The chapel will be named N. D. du Puy in honor of the first Mother Foundress of the order in Canada who came from an old French city. Anyone who wishes to enlist in a membership so full of advantages may do so by writing directly to Fafard or to the Mother Superior of the Convent of Jesus Marie.

Fullerton, Georgiana: (Ayrsfreed, Bournemontte Hants, England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is sending two chapters of "The Handkerchief at the Window". This will make up five chapters, or four, as two are longer. Hudson should inform her if he wants this tale and what terms he will offer for it.

Hickey, P(atrick) V.: New York, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson may now announce the I(llustrated) C(atholic) A(merican) as soon as he will. Hudson should now wait for the C. A.'s announcement as Hickey cannot make that until he has visited the Cardinal and Bishops and then to formally announce it to them. He encloses a clipping regarding the Illustrated Catholic American. His first club came from Chicago, from W. J. Onahan, with 20 names and promise of more. His little daughter was baptized yesterday evening. He is glad to hear Notre Dame is progressing. (The newspaper clipping is enclosed.)

(Hickey, Patrick V.): (New York, New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hickey asks Hudson to tell Brother Stanislaus that the stock of bound volumes is out and he cannot send him the set he promised. He is sending both Hudson and Brother a copy of Dion and the Sybils and if Hudson is making a notice of "Dion" he will find valuable notes on the author, Miles J. Keane, in an article in the Weekly Register.

Hutchison, Wm. J. M.: Somerset, England
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He acknowledges the receipt of the Ave Maria, through the introduction of Mrs. E(liza Allen) Starr. In a way of thanks he sends extracts from the Whitehall Review which may interest Hudson. Also "Rome's Recruits" is being sent by post. He wishes Hudson success.

Kemper, Philip A.:
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has read Hudson's appeal for the missionary in the west and is sorry that he cannot do much for him. He encloses several hundred pictures he believes a missionary will find use for on his travels, also materials for two pair of small bouquets for his altar. The lilies were packed too close together in shipping, but can easily be arranged to look nice. He trusts others better fixed will help him with the more costly articles. P.S. No acknowledgment necessary or desired.

Meany, M(ary) L.:
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Palffy-Karolyi, Countess Geraldine: Budapest, (Hungary)
 to Mother Mayer: Vienna, (Austria)

She wishes to give her opinion of the character and piety of Madame (Alice) Seymour and especially of her influence upon children. She believes that Madame Seymour has the faculty of drawing out young hearts. She has endeared herself to the Countess' elder daughters. She believes Madame Seymour to be a good Catholic and that she has never been a bad influence upon the children confided to her care. As Mother Mayer knows, Madame Seymour is a cultured and distinguished person and the Countess hopes that she will find a position agreeable to her. (Copy of a letter found in the papers of Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.)

Scravendyke, Mrs. Lucie G.: Cope May City, New Jersey
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The accompanying story she arranged while down at the sea shore. It is dedicated to some children she has promised one to for a long time. She thought the most attractive form to introduce it would be in the children's department of the Ave Maria. She hopes it will bring new subscribers to the Ave Maria. The children are being educated at the Sacred Heart Convent at Rochester and their mother is a wealthy Boston lady, a widow and convert to the faith. She would like it published as early as possible and wants Hudson to read it over and inform her what he thinks of it and when it will be printed. It could be divided into two numbers. P.S. She has but one copy of the story which she is sending to Hudson.

Stace, M(ary) A(nn):
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

In a late issue of the Ave Maria Miss Stace read where it was desired to have all the Visions of Catherine Emmerich translated. They have been her study for years and she would like to translate them. She will do it cheaply as she loves the work. She has 5 volumes of her visions.

Starr, Eliza Allen: (Chicago, Illinois)
 to F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson must give the story a title. The proof reader should take extra pains with it as it was written in haste. She thanks Hudson for his visit. She sends regards to Father (Edward) Lilly (C.S.C.) and to Mother Elizabeth. She asks to be remembered in Hudson's prayers. Miss Starr made her first communion twenty-five years ago this Christmas.

Waylen, Walter: Hartford, Conn(ecticut)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He presumes Hudson has been receiving his paper the "Connecticut Catholic" with the other exchanges. He has been appointed Editor and hopes Hudson has noticed an improvement in it. The circulation is increasing. He has a sister who writes under the name of "Ethel Tane" for the "Irish Monthly" which is an excellent monthly. She has sent a Catholic story called "A Tale of Two Loves" which is laid in England. He wants to bring her before the American public and in a magazine whom his friend Miss E(leanor) C. Donnelly has contributed to. He will forward the copy if Hudson will promise to make room for it as it will merit publication. She will be in America in June.
