Boursetty, J(ules) de: Paris, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: Bordeaux, France)

Mrs. Diano asked him to send to Perché a copy of a letter which she has just received from N(ew) O(rleans). Justly offended at its terms, she asks for what is legitimately due: capital and interest. It is harmful to the credit of the diocese to send such contradictory letters to Europe. (Bishop Francis Xavier Leray) lacks the power to acknowledge; that is for the courts, Boursetty saw (E.) d'Aquin again yesterday and the latter wants some funds for the July coupons. (Perché)'s funds being in Burgundy, he asks him to send him a letter (of authorization) and he will take it to Dijon. It would be useful for (Perché) to write the letters which he had prepared at Paris to Cardinal (John) Simeoni and Judge (Paul Emile) Théard. P.S. He has just received (Perché)'s letter of May 31. He does not believe very much in the reconciliation and he sees such inexperience of business that, if it were not for (Perché) personally, he would forget everything pertaining to N(ew) O(rleans). He will do what (Perché) wishes, beginning after the first of July, but it is important for them to meet at Dijon. He wonders if (Leray) is coming and if he will go to Bordeaux. (Perché) should send him the letter immediately by Mr. Manet.

LeCozic, Father (Hyacinthe): New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Widow Diano: (Paris, France)

Pursuant to the instructions of Bishop Leray, he is sending her a check for $100. In doing so, Leray makes no promises for the future, but he assures her of his good intentions. In this case, as in all others, Leray asks her to relinquish the interest due or to come due.

C(arrington), L(ousia) M(ary): Oswego, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Mrs. Carrington never forgets Hudson. She cannot get interested in "Beth" as there is too much conversation and too little Catholic sentiment. Hudson should leave her friend "E" at Rome to work translating Italian legends, and extracts from deep Catholic authors. It was Miss McBride who sent the engravings of St. Peter to Mrs. Carrington. She translated the life of St. John. Hudson should give them something from Lacordaire, and Madame Leretchine (?), and the "Sisters Story" and Mrs. Craven. They are worth a 100 "Beths". Enclosed is a mite given to Mrs. Carrington 30 years ago by a Bishop at her conversion. It is for publication if suitable. Hudson should write only short letters as he is busy.

1880 Jun. 1
Raymond, Father G(ilbert: New Orleans, Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Not having been able to come to the meeting on Monday, Raymond sends his suggestions for paying the debt. It is for Leray to impose the means. It would be useful to have them approved by Propaganda. As there has been much discouragement among the priests, it should be proclaimed that there will be no liquidation. Since the interest cannot be paid to the faithful, it should be declared that priests do not have any more rights than others and that the principal will be paid to them only after that which is due to the more needy creditors. $50,000 should be raised without delay. The diocese owes approximately $400,000; two or three good collections will diminish that so that the ordinary resources will be sufficient to pay it completely. To raise the $50,000 the number of annual collections should be increased, the Diocesan Association revived, a great collection made among the rich, lectures, concerts and fairs held in the various parishes, chaplains, assistants and fairs pay as formerly, receipts for dispensations applied to this end, and, above all, each parish taxed a certain sum based on its revenues. Expenses should be reduced to a bare minimum. Archbishop (John Mary) Odin, (C.M.), made arrangements with the (Vincentians) and the Marists for their churches and, as he had just established the cathedraticum, he stipulated that there would be demanded of them on the churches ceded to them only 5% of their revenues, and this is paid under the title of cathedraticum. If the cathedraticum is diminished, their dues should be diminished; if increased, they should pay the increase. They are more justly held to this than the Jesuits and the Redemptorists who built their own churches. It is for want of exposing this situation to Propaganda that the Lazarists and Marists will probably obtain a favorable reply. It has been suggested that the religious communities could be invited to generously join in the payment of the debt. Any other measures that are believed useful could be added. If these plans succeeded, in a few years the debt would be settled.

Stace, M(ary) A(nn): Marshall, Mich(igan)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Stace thought their accounts settled when she left Churchtown. She is very grateful for the remittance received as starting Catholic schools in poor places does not always bear its own expenses. She will be at Notre Dame enroute to Dennison on the 13th. Miss Stace wishes to consult with Hudson regarding the publication of a translation of Catherine Emmerick's visions. The "Passion" has been translated from the French. There are 4 volumes in German containing her visions as taken down by Clement Breutand. She would like to translate them for the Ave Maria with a view of forming a pamphlet. Many minds are intent on the "mystic life." Mrs. F. A. Stace and Mary Ann had an interview with an Episcopalian minister. His liberal views recognized Christianity in Catholicity. He borrowed Margaret's "Dolorous Passion" as exhibited in Catherine Emmerick's Visions with eagerness.

Boursetty, J(ules) de: Paris, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: Bordeaux, France)

He has received (Perché's) letter of the 2nd. (Perché) took with him drafts for two letters, one of Judge (Paul Emile) Théard and the other for Cardinal (John Simeoni), which he was to write at Mans. He should look for them and tell him if he finds them. If not, Boursetty will send him what is necessary from Dijon. Arrangements are going badly with (E. d'A(quin). P.S. Nothing appears pressing for (Perché's) departure; it can wait.

Chauvin, Father J.E.: Mansura, (Louisiana)
 to Father P. F(elix) Dicharry: (Natchitoches, Louisiana)

He would have replied earlier to Dicharry's letter of the 24th, but he was prevented by the arrival of a new associate sent to Moreauville by Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray, Father E. Reynes of the diocese of New Orleans. Father (Paul E.) Simon is well at Marksville. Leray asks if he is certain that Father (F.X.) Guay is guilty. Yes, he is a wretch of the worst sort. As for the dispensation, Simon has it. Chauvin does not know who the relative is, but he sees in his marriage register that the man and woman had been dispensed from consanguinity in the 3rd degree by Father (Nicholas) Francais in 1842. Simon is supposed to perform the marriage and will question them. Father (L. Julian) Gal(l)op perhaps has enemies; Chauvin often receives complaints about him. He drinks too much. In the present situation at Avoyelles, after the Guay affair, they ought to be more prudent than ever.

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

The last two numbers of the Ave Maria have been good. Egan sent Hudson's letter to Ray, for he is anxious that Ray should know Catholics. McGee's (Illustrated Weekly) is no more; the trouble is J. A. McGee. When Egan left it had 16,000 subscribers which have since dwindled to 5,000. Egan wouldn't stay because he couldn't get along with McGee. He is trying to make the I(llustrated) C(atholic) A(merican) less ponderous. The check which the Independent sent him for "Saint Theresa and God" he returned. Egan hopes to see Hudson at the commencement. The only thing about "Prelude" which satisfied him was the dedication. He suggests that a short story would improve the Ave Maria. Patrick Hickey wants to know who said he was going West this summer. (William) Onahan writes that Hickey is expected at Notre Dame.

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

The last issues of the Ave Maria were particularly good. Egan is very anxious that de Hay should know some Catholics. Hudson's letter has been sent to him. When Egan left McGee the paper had 16,000 and now it has dwindled down to 5,000. He should have stayed, but McGee was impossible to get along with. Egan is trying to make the I(llustrated) C(atholic) A(merican) less ponderous. The "Independent" sent Egan a check which he returned. It was for "Saint Theresa to Our Lord." The only thing about "Prelude" which gives Egan satisfaction is the dedication. He hopes to see Hudson soon. Catholic writers are beginning to form around Hudson. A seasonal short story would be an improvement in the "Ave Maria." Mr. (Patrick V.) Hickey wants to know who said he was going West this summer. Mr. Onahan writes he is expected at Notre Dame, this year.

 to James F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks if Edwards could postpone the ice cream festival which he is to give to the Sorins next Saturday, until Sunday or Monday. The reason is that he is in retreat until Sunday afternoon at which time he will make his religious profession.

Fullerton, (Lady) Georgiana: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's remittance for "those in Ireland" received. Help coming from afar makes one know the Catholic union of heart. Lady Fullerton will never see the kind givers in this world, but hopes to meet them in Heaven. She encloses an article which was received from one who finds out the needs of secret sufferers. The sufferings of various families are described by Lady Fullerton. Many people bear in silence their sufferings.

Oster, A.: New Albany, (Indiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Oster wrote to Father Granger regarding a gentleman who has no place to live, but received no reply. The gentleman is about 75 years old, well educated, and lost his eyesight in the war between the north and the south. He is favorably inclined towards the Catholic church. Could this man be received at Notre Dame and if not, is there any place this gentleman could go?

 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She could not think of what it was she promised to send Edwards. Enclosed is one that Angela Ewing wrote. Sister Lucretia has no time to have it copied before Mr. Luigi Gregori leaves, so she asks Edwards to have it done. They are waiting for Father Thomas E. Walsh (C.S.C.) to come to examine the graduates in history.

Aveilhé, Father Eugene: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph) Perché: (Bordeaux, France)

Having heard very often of Perché's charity, he writes for assistance. He arrived in New Orleans on February 9 and went immediately to see Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray) Lauray. As he did not have his papers, Leray refused to grant him any faculties. Without resources, he went to the Superior of the Jesuits, Father (Francis de Sales) Gautrelet, (S.J.) who opened his purse and encouraged him. Gautrelet procured him lodging and there he awaited a letter from Archbishop (Pierre Henri Gérault) de Langalerie. Only on March 25 did he receive a letter from the vicar general saying that Langalerie wanted to write to Perché. Aveilhé communicated this letter to Leray, but he sent him away as he had done before. No longer wanting to burden the Jesuits, he was very discouraged; then Father (Alexander) Mariné, (C.S.C.), received him at St. Isidore's Farm. Both he and Mariné wrote again to Langalerie. He is in New Orleans because he was too good. He wanted to help his sister and her family and he borrowed for that. He built a church and spent more than he had. He would have found the money, but they would not give him the time. On the advice of the Archbishop, he took refuge in Spain. Once there, he wrote to Langalerie for some money and his papers and was sent 400 f(rancs). As for the papers, he told him that when he arrived at his destination, if the bishop thought it necessary, he would send what was needed. It seems that several of the New Orleans clergy have said that no attention should be paid to him since his Archbishop has abandoned him. He does not believe it. Perché could perhaps save him. He was for 4 years pastor at Beaumont in the archdiocese of Auch. He begs Perché to have pity on a poor priest of 35 years.

 to Mrs. May Goldsmith:

Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray, who is going to Europe on business has agreed to furnish his friends some information which will aid in the transformation of the post at New Orleans, something desired by everyone. He wants to introduce Leray to his friends. Leray will be able to give some useful and interesting information on the operation of republican institutions.

Churchill, (Harriet) B. "Hattie": Dorchester, (Massachusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Churchill thanks Hudson for Father Jonin's book. She believes it would be better that her father did not read the book at all than to read it only to ridicule. His mind is prejudice against revealed religion. Miss Churchill was converted from the same position except she was taught the doctrines from childhood. Her father's pessimism comes from experience of the world. Nothing short of a miracle can convert such people. The first chapter of "The Crusade" and "Gertrude Van der Werf" is finished. They will be forwarded to Hudson.

She knows Hudson never fails in such matters but she wants errors ratified as soon as possible. Miss Starr expects Hudson every Sunday to have tea with her. Last week's "Ave Maria" did not come.

He gives Hudson his address for May and June. Murphy requests a number to be sent to the Mother of the Sisters of Charity and the Mother of the Sisters of Mercy. As soon as Murphy sees the June number he will write more of the Legends. There is another ecclesiastical investigation being held about Knock. People are coming to see this famous Irish Lourdes.

Ryder, Eliot: Cobleskill, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ryder has just returned from New York. Ryder ranks Mr. O'Reilly above Miss Donnelly as a strong writer, but not as a Catholic writer. Miss Donnelly's best elements are sincerity and gracefulness. This cannot be said of O'Reilly or Egan. The best embodiment of all of that is in Father Ryan. Ryder has received one order for the "New York Catholic" and thanks Hudson for the notices. His trip was with worry and he is now ill.

Ephrem to use them at Fort Wayne. They would be glad to have a recommendation for the geographies from Edwards to publish in their circular.

Williams, Mary A(nne): Victoria, (Australia)
 to (Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

The books Seton sent, along with the newspaper, were there when she returned home on Saturday. She is truly glad to have the life of Seton's grandmother, as it was written by him. The newspaper gives her a better idea of the very high position Seton holds. She will put the article and Seton's photo in one of the books; also a photo of his grandmother which Father Hogan sent her. William' sister-in-law, Mrs. George Synnot had a number of copies taken of Seton, his brother, and grandmother and Williams got a set. She will enclose several photos, one of Sir Walter Synnot, her grandfather, and one of her aunt Maria (Synnot), her father's only full sister. This photo is a copy of a miniature painted by Colonel Legard who was engaged to Maria whose early death prevented the event. She also encloses photos of her niece, Mrs. Adamson's children. They are grandchildren of Williams' brother George, their mother being his second daughter named Catherine but called Dot. (no enclosures). Williams has just returned from Geelong where she spent several weeks helping her niece, Dot Adamson attend her mother, Mrs. G. Synnot, who had typhoid fever. Dr. Reid, her son-in-law who is attending her says she will recover. Last week Williams went to Melbourne to attend the meeting of an association she founded, the "Victoria Ladies Working Association". She will send Robert an account of the meeting. Williams' eldest son is going on quietly on the station he manages. Her son Seton (Williams) went up for his final examination last week. Her sister Jane Manifold, at whose house he lives has told Williams that she never met anyone so much liked and so popular. Williams was away from home so much she has not yet done the copy of Old Mrs. Seton's likeness.

Elder, W(illia)m Henry, Coadj(utor Bishop): Cincinnati, Ohio
 to Bishop Francis X(avier) Leray: (Chateaugiron, Ile et Vilaine, France)

He hopes that today he may write Cardinal (John Simeoni) what he thinks about Leray's business, but it is hard for him to express his thought in Latin. For fear of a delay, he writes Leray. As he believes a great deal can be done by persons of influence, he recommends that Leray ascertain from Monsignor (Louis E. Hostlot) Hosstot what persons will be most serviceable. The best one Elder is acquainted with is Bishop (Achille) Rinaldini. He was a long time engaged in the Propaganda and for a while had special charge of the American business. He was their professor of Moral when Elder was in the Propaganda and has always taken a very friendly interest in him. The simple and obvious course would be for (Pope Leo XIII), to require from Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché) a strict account at least of the money obtained for those bonds. To Elder the whole affair is a mystery. (Perché) is certainly a conscientious man, a devout man. He has not done anything with dishonest intentions. From his explanation of the past, a judgment can be formed of his intentions for the future. If the Sovereign Pontiff concludes to leave things in (Perché's) hands, Leray may be very happy to be freed from all responsibility. With regard to Natchez, if Leray can obtain the speedy appointment of Father (Francis) Janssens, he will be a valuable member added to the Province. Archbishop (James) Gibbons said a suggestion had been made of him for Galveston which is no doubt a more important see. But it will be easier to find one suited to Galveston than to Natchez, and Galveston has more need of an American, if a good one can be found. In Natchez the clergy are almost all foreign and there is no material yet to form an American priesthood. Leray will find (Ella B. Edes) Eads a sensible woman. She is very earnest, reliable, sincerely seeking the good of religion. Elder hopes to write to her soon.

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

Miss Starr feels wretched to hear that Father B. ( ) is out of a parish. She discusses in regard to his work. Miss Starr can never remember the terms so leaves the money situation to Hudson. In regard to Dr. C., Hudson may put the name in any form. His confessor is Father Lambert of the Jesuit College. The doctor says his rosary with a touching devotion. Miss Starr gave him his first lessons in it so she is especially pleased to see his devotion.

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

Miss Howe had a pleasant visit at Notre Dame. She has been busy with matters in regard to the repairs of the house. Miss Howe is sorry she missed Hudson's final call, but she and Father Comprassion were conversing until nearly sunset. Hudson could give her address in her advertisement or have the people apply to Hudson directly. Another point of Mrs. (Anna Hanson) Dorsey's story is the claims a mother has to her daughter's affectionate care. That does not seem to be understood in this country. Parents do not make as many sacrifices in this country as in the older countries. Miss Howe believes she owes her mother company as she has provided a home for her and has educated her very well. Miss Howe's mother's "ridiculous life of seclusion" was led so her daughters would not have to work for support. In religious vocations, parents have second claim on their children. Miss Howe has not received full payment from Kelly, Piet and Co. nor a reply to her letter. She asks Hudson to mention it to any of their agents that may visit Notre Dame. Father General (Edward Sorin) has said that Howe's agent has been dishonest. Her father and Mr. J. G. Seammon of Chicago had a Damon and Pythias friendship. Mr. Seammon felt himself the one owing the debt of gratitude to the family. Seammon always said he would have been Frances' god-father had he been a Catholic, but had to yield to his brother, General Seammon. His great fault is his insolent, arrogant demeanor to people and their retaliation is destroying his reputation for honesty. He has been an instrument of Providence and helps them "hold on" to their property until better times when tight places on money matters occur. She relates their experience with him.

Lalor, Sister M(ary) de Sales: Abbeyleix, Ireland
 to F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

More distressing cases have been brought to her attention. Poverty is not general in that part of Ireland and those that are in distress will not acknowledge it. It would take about $200 to carry the sufferers for the next three months. She gives figures for both boys and girls. She asks remembrance at Mass.

Ryder, Eliot: Cobleskill, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is with regret that he is unable to attend the commencement exercises at Notre Dame. His illness was caused over business affairs in New York. Ryder does not like to say aught against his wife, but she opened several letters containing notices and answered them, saying the price had been raised to 50. She refused to tell Ryder how many such letters had been received. The parties she wrote are indignant at being deceived by the advertisement. Hudson should tell Ryder what he thinks of the matter. He gave his word for 25 and will keep it.

Circumstances prevented Lambing from accepting Hudson's invitation. Lambing is emerging from a season of the closest application to work he has ever spent. His history will be ready for the trade soon. It is entitled "A History of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Pittsburgh and Allegheny from its foundation to the Present Time." It will be the size of "Smith's Elements of Canon Law". It will contain over 500 pages and four portraits.

Murphy, S.J., (Father) E(dward): Knock, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Murphy is writing from the Sacred Spot that Hudson made famous by so many divine favors, and sanctified by the prayers of so many faithful, pious, people of the Catholic world. Murphy's heart is full of gratitude for Hudson's 3rd generous remittance. It is also full of gratitude for the little children and the readers of the "Ave Maria." Hudson should hear the fervent prayers said for him. Murphy believes there is no greater joy than to brighten the prospects of the poor and change their sigh of sorrow into a thrill of joy. This is what Hudson has done for many. Hudson should continue the good work until the dark days of hunger are past. Murphy has heard and seen the Venerable Archdeacon Kavanagh, the saintly pastor of this parish. Murphy has heard the account of apparitions, some of which have not yet appeared in public, nor will they tell the ecclesiastical commissions. A picture of one of them is enclosed with a photo of the church, and some of the cement given to Murphy. Another apparition of the Crucifixion that occurred Friday last was heard by Murphy. For three whole hours a policeman was favored with a vision of the Virgin Mary. He had to be carried away as he was exhausted. Thousands of people from all over Ireland come night and day. A Protestant child who had been born blind returned to his parents in England rejoicing in the use of his sight. Murphy describes how it is a pity that something has not been done to carry into execution what many believe is the will of God. Murphy has spent the whole day investigating the scenes of the "Irish Legends." He has not received a single "Ave Maria" since last May. He wrote to Gill for some who sent some a year old. Hudson should inform Gill to send a monthly number of the "Ave Maria" to Murphy. Murphy will tell all who subscribe for it that they can obtain it from Gill, and many will subscribe if Hudson arranges matters with Gill, as it is inconvenient now. Murphy will be at the Parochial House in Carrick next week.

Toohey, C.S.C., (Father) J. M.: Lead City, D(akota) T(erritory)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Enclosed is the first part of "Raphael" without changes. Hudson should not begin it in the "Ave Maria" for awhile as Toohey must go to the novitiate and cannot finish the translation for some time. Toohey changed ponies with Father Gleeson after his 200 mile ride as his "Molly" was worn out. The people of Rapid want to build a church. Toohey has promised them Mass on Sunday, July 4th. The church at Lead must be closed while he is away. Almost the entire debt of the church was cleared as $670 was realized from a festival, in spite of Protestant opposition. Why does Father General (Edward Sorin) not answer his letter?

Dallas, A(lexander) I.: Fort Clark, Texas
 to F(athe)r D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dallas wrote Hudson a letter and carried it in his pocket for 10 days. Dallas has seen the notice of "Lacrodaires Letters" that Hudson published. Dallas is still without notes to make a satisfactory life of Col(onel) Yaresche. Dallas is no more contented than before. A court martial now and then employs his long days, but it is not pleasant to hear the recital of the crimes of others day after day. The weather is insufferable when there is no wind. There is no dress parade when it is 100 at 5 P.M. Movement of troops has brought Colonel Richard F. O'Beirne, formerly of the 14th Infantry, to the post. Father Corby will remember O'Beirne as the Catholic officer who had charge of the execution of a deserter near Cattlett station, V(irgini)a. Dallas feigned illness to avoid being in court. Father Heyburn has been Dallas' guest and has said Mass in the parlor of the house every morning. Colonel O'Beirne and his wife both attended, but have now gone to Fort Stockton. An application has been made for Father (A.) Heyburn to be appointed chaplain. It will not succeed. He is too young for his work and should be under the care of an older priest. Dallas told Heyburn to go more among the men. There are only 10 or 15 that attend Mass because he does not make friends among them. Dallas thanks Hudson for the invitation to the college. His daughter, Marie, wants him to send her books to read during the holidays, and he cannot comply with her request as he is too far from any bookstores. Could Hudson send her some books? Dallas and his wife are in the best of health regardless of the heat. Should Dallas send the books that Hudson has sent him? Mrs. Dallas joins in kind regards and both ask for Hudson's prayers.
