Norris, J. W. S.: Bay City, (Michigan)
 to Father E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He sends some verse in honor of Our Blessed Lady and her devoted child. He hopes to find favor for St. Stanislaus. He thanks Hudson for his criticism on his "Flowers of May". It is the most cherished of all notices. He takes pleasure in being considered one of Hudson's contributors and he will give his best efforts to Hudson. Hudson is to keep the verses in remembrance if they are not accepted for Our Lady's Journal.

Grace, Thomas L. Bishop of St. Paul, (Minnesota): St. Paul, (Minnesota)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Grace encloses, unsealed, his letter in answer to Miss (Ella) Edes, and asks that McMaster read and forward it. He is very undeserving of the great kindness McMaster has shown him. In the past, the views of McMaster and his sentiments regarding Catholic matters have always coincided with his own and have commanded his approval. He greatly respects he Freeman's Journal and has recommended it to others as an instrument for good. There have been any crises in the affairs of the Church in this country in which the Journal has been a controlling power on the side of truth, and in many such cases, the threatened evil was averted through her efforts. Grace hopes this work may continue for many years.

Starr, E(liza) A(llen): (Chicago, Illinois)
 To F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The articles "On the Appian Way" are ready for the printers. The first two were paid for as they were sent last year. Miss Edes helped her to valuable materials for L. Giovanni in Ohio, as she sent material not available to Miss Starr. She has sketches to illustrate the articles, but since the Ave Maria is not an illustrated magazine they will have to come out in a book. Hudson should overlook the Latin, on the church of St. Sebastian, or else give it to F(athe)r (Thomas) Vagnier to do. If any mistakes occur now they will be Hudson's fault. Prof(essor) (James L.) Edwards called her and informed her of Hudson's accident. She hopes he is rapidly improving and is glad he is coming to Chicago and calling upon her. She is sorry to hear about F(athe)r (Edward) Lil(l)y. Mother Eliza and Sister Cecilia will suffer in many ways as they are so tender. Hudson should express her sympathy to them if he goes to St. Mary's and tell them she has never forgotten them. F(athe)r General is on the ocean and she hopes he will have a pleasant voyage. Will Hudson give her regards to Brother Albert. She is returning his books. Her brother-in-law still lives and is a great sufferer. She asks Hudson to pray for her.

 To Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

He tells Hudson that when "He placed, mid Dante's bays a diamond true" was first published in the Catholic Record it was made to read "boys" to his horrow. He would like Hudson to find him a proof. He informs Hudson that "Preludes" is under way.

Gloden, (Father) Jos(eph) P.: Berwick, Ohio
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter and Ave Marias received. If the proof of the manual of the Confraternity has not been sent, Hudson should send it to Berwick, not Carey. Hudson may put any advertisement on the back cover, but the title is all that should go on the front cover. The cinctures were ordered by Father Koloff but they were not paid for as he has not learned the price. Hudson should ask Father Koloff if he spoke to the Mother Superior about the Carey, (Ohio) Church. He recommends himself to Hudson's prayers and sacrifices.

(Leray), Francis Xavier Bishop of Janopolis and Coadjutor of New Orleans: Natchitoches, (Louisiana)
 to Father (Gustave A. Rouxel: New Orleans, Louisiana)

After a long journey of about 600 miles, Leray returned for All Saint's day and found letters appointing him coadjutor of Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph) Perché and administrator of the temporal affairs of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He remains administrator apostolic of the diocese of Natchitoches until a successor be appointed. The Holy Father urges him to repair to New Orleans as soon as possible but the welfare of Natchitoches requires his presence at least until the end of the month. He has written to Cardinal (John) Simeoni that he would take charge at once and asks (Rouxel) to call together the members of the commission of the finances if he can legally be elected president before the formal resignation of Perche. He requests that they prepare a plain statement of the debts of the diocese. This will give the commission the occasion to write to (Jules de Boursetty) de Boursetti. In this letter, which he desires to be polite and guarded, (Boursetty) must be informed that henceforth no disposition of money in France can be made without (Leray)'s consent. (Rouxel) should present to the commission his appreciation of their expression of confidence.

Nicolas, James J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks Hudson to put his sister, Margaret Mary, on his obituary list. She died on October 27 at the age of 25, after a long illness and made her religious vows on her death bed. Two and a half years ago she had made preparation to join the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin but her father's ill health made her wait. After his death her health failed. Father Lambert, S. J., paid a feeling tribute to her in his funeral sermon. Nicolas is employed by the Western News Co. and is taking the Ave Maria with the intention of giving his sister all the spiritual advantages. He tells Hudson that all of his father's pupils who are now in the priesthood will pray for her when they see the name. He explains that his father (M.P.Nicolas) was a French Professor in Dublin and died in 1878 before coming t Chicago. Many of his pupils were destined for All Hallows and Maynooth, and a little over 6 years ago he taught at Rev. Dr. McRedmond's of Ennis, Co. Clare, where a number were preparing for the Church.

Holloway, Mrs. E. B.: Shelbyville, Illinois
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

She has a story ready for young people which will be published as a book she would like to have it published as a serial first in a Catholic Weekly paper. She thinks the Ave Maria could use it in the children's department and will run for about twelve issues if given five columns in each number. She expects no remuneration but wants to reserve the copyright. She tells Hudson that she writes under the names of Sister Aloysia (?) and Teresa A. Thornet, which is used in McGee's Illustrated Weekly.

Jenkins, (Father) T(homas) J.: Hardinsburg, K(entuck)y
 To Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter and Ave Maria were received. He thanks Hudson for pointing out his errors in his manuscripts. He is returning the books Hudson sent him. He is glad that Miss (Eliza Allen) Starr has taken his subject in hand as he could obtain no adequate information on it. He thanks Hudson for his kindness and for the book he sent as he needs cheering more than anything else. His health has not improved. He asks Hudson to commission F(athe)r (Alexis) Granger to than Our Lady's confraternity for the prayers said for his brother's partial relief. He hopes his brother can be released as he has been 20 months in prison. He never was sure that the story was not translated before, but could find no proof that it was. He wants Hudson to send him a list of Schmid's tales to see if "Fernando" has ever appeared. He wants Hudson to inform him if there are any of Hein Conscience's works not dressed in our tongue as he has a French translation of one which is a fine historical romance according to the enclosed from Maurice (Francis) Egan. Hudson need not answer if it is troublesome.

Lang, (Father) John F.: Oxford, Ind(iana)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks Hudson to give his apologies to Father (James) Toohey for not having complied with his request sooner. He was absent when the letter came and had to go to the prairie upon his return and forget the note. If the enclosed is not too lengthy he tells Hudson to use it and send copies of the Ave Maria in which the communication is inserted, as he cannot subscribe for it at the present.

(Hardenbergh) (Widdicombe, W.) Ad.: St. Paul, Minnesota
 to James F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He had heard a report that Edwards had gone to Chicago to be married. He sends his congratulations. He has no idea who the bride may be, but trusts it was not Miss Jones. He is looking forward to a high time this winter.

Russell, S. J. (Father) Matthew: Dublin, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson is very kind about his little bits of verse, he is sure Hudson is bored by many of them, but the enclosed would be likely to please some. It is a shame and a sin for Russell to have let Hudson pay a half penny for the Irish Monthly. He will mark Hudson down for a free copy from now on, and allow him to send Russell the Ave Maria. He inquires about the rate of exchange. Now that the postage is the same all over the country, the Irish Monthly ought to aspire to a modest American circulation.

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

She believes that Miss Marshall's story "Ten Years Later" has found its way to destruction unexamined, which would be a pity. "Aubrey Court" is another affair which she wrote about over a year ago, but Hudson thought it too expensive. She wants Hudson to read the story, otherwise she would not have sent it to him. Maybe the French are not the pious people we think, or that the American Catholic watch more because the pray less. She has nothing to write of Europe that American would enjoy, as, what she would praise, they would condemn. Father Faber says that God is pleased to give favors to those who pray, but she is not praising her own way of doing as she has little time to pray. She has heard of Hudson's accident and was glad to learn it was not serious. She asks Hudson to read the story as she is sure that he will like it.

His wife has just returned from Washington bringing the last Scholastic with her. In it they saw where Hudson has been ill from a fall. He asks Hudson to send the Scholastic and the Ave Maria to his new address and tells him that he will do anything in the city that Hudson may want done. He is going to "report" the Cathedral again.

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

She has forgotten if Hudson wanted a complete translation or only the chapters relating to the pilgrimage so she is sending the first page of the translation of St. Anne. She disagrees with Hudson with references to the religious giving an example of charity. He says that Notre Dame has not failed in being charitable, but she claims that giving charity and giving an example of charity are two different things. If the religious would give charity openly instead of secretly it would set a good example. The other remark which she disagrees is with the vow of poverty and obedience being inconvenient to practice. She believes these two vows bind us in a special manner to God who is the real Superior. She explains to Hudson that she does not want to be considered impertinent but she wanted to draw Hudson's attention to these differences of opinion. She asks Hudson not to bear a cross without taking care to win the crown. Without the Tabernacle they could not be borne. She asks Hudson to forgive and pray for her.

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

She hopes Hudson has recovered from his accident but is glad he has been able to rest. Her daughter, Mrs. Eastman, is still ill and suffering but not complaining. The doctor suspects spinal trouble. She is continuing with her story and has named it "Beth's Promise". She does not hinge the story on the evils of mixed marriages, but the evils of such a marriage reveal themselves in the characters and events throughout the story. She asks Hudson to advance her some money when she sends in eight chapters in December as she is pressed for money and has a bank note to pay. She assures Hudson not be be uneasy about the completion of the story as she will have it completed in his hands by the last of January. Her daughters spent Friday with their Ar(ch)b(isho)b (James Gibbons) and B(isho)p Stephen Ryan, of St. Louis, who both had many nice things to say about her to her children. They were the guests of Mrs. (William) Sherman. This fact is not for publication as General Sherman has not gotten over his disappointment when his son Tom became a priest. She asks Hudson to write her immediately so as to relieve her or to give her time to make other arrangements. She will write a young folk story later. She asks him if he has written the review of her book for a western paper yet. He can do it better than anyone else for he has the spirit of the book.

Egan, Maurice F(rancis):
 To Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has arranged about the binding of the book. If Cunningham keeps him promise Hudson will be very pleased. Cunningham said the money had to be paid upon delivery of the books at Notre Dame. The Catholic papers will give the book good selling aid. They ought to sell four editions. Further editions could be printed at Notre Dame as the cost then would only be the paper. He gives an example of the title page for Hudson's approval. He will write a preface and a dedication. The book will be out by Christmas.

She has received Hudson's letter and is sorry he has been ill. She sends manuscript of "Maplewood" for the Ave Maria. She hopes that Hudson will not object to the "Garden of the Soul" which she interwove with the story. In a postscript she tells Hudson that she will send a notice of their church and school for the Catholic notes in the Ave Maria.

Cox, G. T.: Cambridge Port, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Because of illness he could not write and thank Hudson any sooner for printing the piece concerning St. Mary's Parochial School. Trouble has come between Father (Thomas) Scully and his parishoners and Cox would like to have a piece published to show the situation Father Scully is in, and who is in the right. Father Scully went through quite a struggle to build a Catholic school and then the parishoners would not send their children to it. Father Scully compelled them to send their children by refusing them the Sacraments until they did. The people took petitions to the Archbishop (John Williams)but he backed Father Scully to the end. In the end the parishioners will have to give in to him.

Dallas, A(lexander) I.: (New York, New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is troubled with two matters regarding the enclosed. It is too long and it looks unfinished and Mrs. D(allas) says it is full of repetitions. He sends it to Hudson for his careful proof and he may do as he chooses. Father (J.A.) Fanning of Fairbury, Ill(inoi)s, has written to him for information regarding religion in the Army as he plans writing the question up in the public press. Dallas does not know what to do so he has referred him to the Ave Maria. If the Father isn't a subscriber, he should be.

Grene, S.J., Father J.: (Donnybrook, Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has sent three copies of his, as editor, "Old Irish Litany" and if Hudson likes it he may publish it in the Ave Maria. The cost may be put in Hudson's account with Mr. Walsh. The "Litany" seems to do a great deal of good in Europe but he does not think it could make a greater noise anywhere than it will in New York under F. Whyte. There is considerable commotion in western Ireland about the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John the Evangelist, which occurred on August 22 at Knock, Co. Mayo. A commission of three priests have been examining it under order of the Archbishop. He hopes when a report comes out it will make its way to America. Dr. Ricards, Bishop of the Cape of Good Hope, is raising the wind in France, Belgium, and Germany as he wants to plant a Trappist monastic community in South Africa to cultivate the land and the natives too. Dr. Ricards likes the Irish Litany and he gave a copy of it to the Bishop of Augsburg. On November 25 they had a diocesan Synod which was attended by over 400 Dublin priests who were all charmed with the new Archbishop. He is going to the Post Office to see if Hudson's affair is settled. He awaits a written announcement to be sure. As he has just come upon an important speech by Gladstone, he sends it to Hudson. On November 28 Grene writes that he has received a document from the Post Office saying the money has been paid. He encloses the first form under which he got the Litany printed.

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

At this time Hudson is probably arranging his prospectus for the coming year. He cannot promise her reminiscences of Europe as she has taken over many of her mother's duties and in her state of health she lacks strength. She will contribute an occasional article on the prominent feast of the week as she did on the feast of Corpus Christi and she would make use of much she learned while abroad. She cannot write the things she and Rose planned together without becoming ill. She tells Hudson that the orphan girl they brought from Kentucky proved to be a failure. Her mind was stunned at an early age and she has no power of learning. Her conduct was beyond control so they sent her to a convent school. To metaphysicians she would be a rare treat as they could learn what a woman is when she is with out intellectual capabilities. She is sending a slip for Hudson to read that was rejected by one Catholic paper because it was not orthodox according to American standards, but the Sisters of Providence got it inserted for her in the Central Catholic and it appeared without alteration. The Ave Maria changed the expression Blessed Sacrament Altar to Main Altar. She got the idea for her article from that.

(Taylor), M(other) M(ary) Magdalene: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is sorry Hudson is re-publishing her "Pearl On Dark Waters" as she always meant to re-publish it with improvement. She planned to follow some of her characters into France and bring in more about Margaret Mary. If Hudson does not want "Feast of Illness" which was sent six weeks ago she wants it back. She has been in poor health for years and now she has recovered and can use the little talent she has for the good of the community, and she felt the Ave Maria had the first claim on her. She has written a biography and will offer it to Hudson also. She hopes Hudson recovered the missing portions of Stanlegh.

He thanks Hudson for the notices and asks him not to let any expression of doubt of the success of the Enterprise enter a notice if Hudson can prevent it. He no longer has any doubt of its success and he is sure that his part of it deserves success. Everyone should send for a specimen of what he will offer and then the reader can decide whether what he offers is worthy of Catholic support.

Dorsey, Anna Hanson: Washington, (D. of C.)
 To Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

His kind letter arrived when her heart was heavy, and it gave her much relief. Hudson, complying with her request, helped her and she was able to go with "Beth's Promise". The account of Captian Morley's death is true. He (Captain Harrison, the real person) was a relative of hers and the injustice that led to his death is a fact. She makes use of the event to heighten the dramatic interest of the story. She depicts in the fictitious character of his widow the anguish of a soul who abandoned her Faith and feels that she had no right to the Sacraments she neglected but who has true repentance and final reconciliation. Beth is the daughter of this marriage and is brought up ignorant of the fact that she had not been a protestant all her life. Beth promised her mother not to marry men in either branch of the service as her mother wished to spare her the grievance she had when her father, brothers, and husband died for the flag. Beth fell in love with a naval officer, sacrificed her happiness to keep her promise, sought consolation in religion, and became a Catholic. Later Beth finds a note written by her mother before her death releasing her from this promise, and she marries the naval officer who is a Catholic. The Blessed Lady is honored throughout the story, She asks Hudson to select the paper for "Tangled Paths" and to send her a copy. The proposal to send her $100.00 was very generous and she would like to have a check by the 12th of Dec. By that time Hudson should have at least six chapters. She asks Hudson to pray for her success. Her daughter, Mrs. Eastman, is regaining her strength. Father Sorin astonishes her and she hopes he will return safely from his sea voyage. She hopes Hudson is recovered from his sprains and bruises and tells him to be careful of the malaria poison if he is not completely recovered.

He encloses the amount of his and Sister's subscription for the Ave Maria and would like to know if Hudson has any volumes of the Ave Maria for past years on sale. He was sorry to hear that Hudson has not been well. He encloses the Sister's address. He thanks Hudson for the extra copies.

Emery, Susan(L.): Dorchester, Mass (achuse)tts
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Emery thanks Hudson for remembering the book as she does not see it in the list he sent. The title was "Devotions of Dame Gertrude More", published by Thomas Richardson. She would like to see Mrs. Parson's "Life of St. Colette". She asks Hudson if they ever send him books. Congratulations on a speedy recovery, was it Our Lady who did it? She wonders if Hudson liked the poem she sent. A poetic version of an anecdote in "The Glories of Mary". The reason Hudson received one manuscript from New York is because she writes for the "Young Catholic" and Mrs. Hecker did not find that article just what she wanted so Miss Emery told her to send it to Hudson. Mrs. Hecker pays a stipulated sum for each article and does not wait for publishing. It is the only steady encouragement she receives. She pays very little as she is not accustomed to paying for contributions. Miss Emery does not earn enough to pay for her food and clothing. Miss Ellen Buckley has been to see her and would like to take the Ave Maria another six months, but she cannot pay at present. She gives a change of address. As to the drama, she did not know if Hudson could use it and wanted to try nearer home. She gives her prayer to Our Lady and wonders why she does not answer.

Taylor, M(other) M(ary) Magdalene: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She thanks Hudson for the draft he sent her a short time ago. She has an article entitled "Meditations for the Young (?)" and it is to appear in monthly parts. She wants to secure the copyright in America. She is sending Hudson 100 copies with space to print the publisher's name and she hopes Hudson will put the Ave Maria Press on it, or some other Catholic publisher's name. She is sending a proof so Hudson will know what is coming. The proof is not revised by the Jesuit Father who is commissioned by the Cardinal Archbishop to revise the work. This work has been written at the request of many nuns and A.M.D.G. She would like to know if Hudson is going to use her manuscripts "Jeanne (?) de la None" and "A visit to S(ister) M. Magadalene's Lands". She tells Hudson that she is always anxious to know if the manuscripts have reached him and if they are accepted.

1879 Nov. 29,
(Brownson), Orestes (A. Jr.): Dubuque, Iowa
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Orestes is sorry to hear of Henry's accident to his shoulder and hopes it did not occur through somnambulism, as Orestes' wife still thinks he got his fall down stairs in that state. He asks Henry if he has any photos to gave of his family. He is glad to hear (Philip (Brownson) is better. He does not know what any of them look like except that father Gara said that Mrs. (Fifine) Brownson is short and someone else that she wears gold spectacles. Orestes agrees that Henry's is right in not sending his children too young to school for the confinement is bad for them. Orestes' Rosa (Brownson) is seven years old, began (school) last september and now reads the First Reader well and leads her class. Orestes asks about "Orestes" (Brownson) his namesake. Orestes is surprised that Henry has six children already. Verily the Brownsons are not to fail with the death of the great Review. Orestes' Sally (Brownson) 14 years old is second in the 5th. grade. She is tall and looks like Sarah (M. Brownson Tenney) about the nose, mouth and chin, with eyes and forehead like (Sally H. Brownson's). She is the most promising of Orestes' children, except for the youngest Charles Augustus (Brownson), 5 years old, who is a "terror on wheels." He can tell anything about the farm and the stocks. The others have some peculiarities, but in his present circumstances he can not educate them much. Anna (Brownson) 12, Luisa (Brownson) 10, and Rosa (Brownson) go to the school to himself about four miles from home. Anna and Rosa are near-sighted, Charley is a little cross-eyed, but all of them are healthy and can eat all they can get. The fifty dollars Henry sent is a very great help for Orestes is poor almost to distraction and his family has suffered much for want of good clothing. Ned (Brownson) 16 years has been working on a farm for some clothes and Orestes can not do much on the farm and teach a school 4 miles away, for he must start at 7:15 every morning and gets home at 5:15. The only bad luck he has had lately is the loss of one horse valued at $75. Orestes has 2 cows 4 calves, 10 pigs, 43 hens, 4 geese and 2 turkeys. He raised about 200 bushels of corn, 10 bushels of buckwheat, a lot of garden stuff. He made 30 gallons of sorgum molasses. Ned and he worked in the lead mine Thursday and got 40 lbs. of mineral worth $1.20. He will send Henry the receipts he wishes.

1879 Nov. 29
Paul, Daniel: Perugia, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The first part of the "Bridal Ring of Our Lady" is enclosed. He has received payment for the entire article and gives his address for Hudson's New York agent. He also received 45 francs after he mailed the first part of the "Bridal Ring." He thanks Hudson for sending his photograph, and Paul's mental picture of Hudson was not too different from the photo. The 8th of December is the 25th anniversary of the definition of the Immaculate Conception. He asks Hudson to remit payment to his mother immediately, and gives her address. He asks this favor as it will be a pleasure to her and she can buy a Christmas turkey. Hudson should remit $10 a month to Paul's mother until the $85 is spent. He will try to have a sketch by next summer similar to that for the C(atholic) World, only better, as he writes more enthusiastically for the Ave Maria. He wrote to Charlie Stoddard.

1879 Nov. 29
Rouxel, Father G(ustave) A.: New Orleans, Louisiana
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: Natchitoches, Louisiana

Leray's dispatch received yesterday embarrassed him very much, for in rendering him service, Rouxel finds himself in a false position. If the meeting takes place, the members have a right to require him to read the letter of the 7th in which Leray gives them nearly full powers. They know he has received it and Father (Gilbert) Raymond has read it. It is very important in itself, as he has remarked in a preceding communication, and it is in order not to be obliged to read it that he had asked Leray to postpone the meeting. He sees only one way to escape. That is to return it to Leray. If Leray wishes to take advantage of the exceptional situation offered to him in order to let the old charter die a good death, then Rouxel will have rendered him a service. If he wishes to act otherwise, he can return the letter or another. It is not possible to judge things from a distance. Leray should come as soon as possible.

Tello, Manly: Cleveland, O(hio)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He cannot denounce the secular systems too severely and if this land sinks to the lowest depths the inscription "Perished of the Bible Schools" could be inscribed over its degradation. He will publish Hudson's article in the next issue of the Catholic Universe but will correct some misprints he has found. His man Harvard is doing poorly but he will try him to the utmost. He would like to learn more about the painter that Hudson recommended to him. P.S. He will deliver Hudson's message to their Rev(erend) gentlemen.
