Angeline, S(iste)r M(ary): (Logansport, Indiana)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She sends the correspondence. Hudson may make what he wishes with it. The writer was delighted with the use made of a former letter. It may aid the circulation of the Ave Maria to notice this communication.

Dwenger, Joseph, Bishop of Ft. Wayne: F(or)t Wayne, (Indiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter and the copy of Judge Dunne's lecture received. The priests and the people of Fort Wayne have an interest in the official list of the diocesan collection. Other papers beg Dwenger of furnish this list. If Hudson omits the publication of the lists, he should not complain if the people of the diocese do not take an interest in the Ave Maria.

Brown, T. L.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Brown is sorry he did not get to meet Brother Stanislaus. The brother who called Brown informed him that Hudson was buying a new press. If this is true Hudson should tell Brown so he can attend to Hudson's needs at once.

Rouxel, Father G(ustave) A.: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: (Lucerne, Switzerland)

It has been a long time since they have had any news of Perché. The sister of Father (Joseph Marie) Millet, Widow Diano, had written that Perché was expected at Lucerne. The letter that he wrote in order to have Father (Henri) Parmentier received into the diocese indicated that on July 24 he was still in France. All his letters have made them hope he would return in September, but the letter to Parmentier says that his health will not permit him to return until October. A letter from Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray, dated Brittany, announces to Father Gilbert Raymond that all the dispensations have been renewed in Perché's name, that he had seen Cardinal John Simeoni about the affairs of the diocese, and that he planned to return in October. He also had Father (Hyacinth) LeCozic informed to be sparing of the money in the treasury in view of the fact that he had given assurances of the payment of interest in France for January 1881. However, he says nothing of Perché which makes them think he was away when Leray passed through Paris. Father (A.) Duval, pastor of St. Maurice, left for France after giving his resignation. They have named Father (Joseph) Anstaett to his place, subject to Perché's approval. Rouxel would have liked the parish, if Perché had been there, but on his return things can be arranged. He does not know what proposals Leray got approved in Rome, but he does know that the Cathedral is expected to pay more than it can, and he would prefer that someone else were charged with its administration. Everything is quiet. Father (Joseph) Subileau and Father (Alexander Marie) Méhault, as well as Father (Armand J.M.) Dubourg, are in France and plan to leave toward the end of the month in order to return. The city is very healthy, there is no sickness and the harvests were magnificent. He should come back to his children who have waited so long for him.

(Dunbar), Estelle: Waukesha, Wisconsin
 to James F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has been very ill since last Sunday. They have just returned from Milwaukee and will go to Dubuque to see Mount Mellary Abbery. Edwards must have enjoyed meeting his old college chums. Col. West has gotten into quite a difficulty through his defense of "Hancock." There were several articles in the papers about him. West's reply will be in tomorrow's "Milwaukee News." She received "Airy Fairy Lilian" and read it with pleasure.

1880 Sep. 6
Howe, Frances (R.): (Chesterton, Indiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, CSC: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Mr. James Reed has come to see her. He was well pleased with the quality of the soil, but was indignant at the thought of living in such houses, as they are more for style than for comfort. Reed is willing to pay $5,000 and one of the farms is worth $5,000 and the other $2,500. Miss Starr has improved since the publication of her volume, much like Miss Mulack did after she published her collection. Protestant Journals 15 years ago used to have a very effective style writing up poets and attracting attention; it was real criticism. She believes our Catholic poets need criticism. Miss Starr has a scrap book of her published poems. Miss Howe could write an effective article on this book to attract attention to the poems. She agrees with Mr. Ryder's sentiments about Miss Starr's poems rather than Egan's. She would not banish religion from poetry. It is a pity when Catholic Genuine is forced to seek applause from Protestant authority. God is stranger in His own creation. When poetry and art reduce themselves to the level of the Bethlehem inns, they are losing their best vocation, that of elevating the mind of man above sordid aims. She sends three stories of conversions. Hudson may use them as he pleases. Miss Howe does not want him to say thatRose (Howe) was such a nice girl, although she does not object to it. Rose had a brilliant society life. Her delicate health prevented her from doing housekeeping so she had plenty of time to devote to amusement, while Frances had to care for her mother. This makes some believe that Rose was more trustworthy than herself and that their mother had to watch Frances more closely. "Louise Lateau" is supposed to be largely the work of Rose. Frances never cared for worldly amusement and when a child looked forward to society life with dread. She is glad she escaped it even if "nobody knows about her". She has received the "History of the Miraculous Medal" a translation of Father Aladel's work from Mr. Piet. The book will be a real treasure to sodalists who wish to know about this medal. Everyone will be benefitted by the perusal of the life of Sister Catharine whose simple life is a powerful rebuke to those who think sanctity must need be of the thunder class style of good deeds. Her mother is better and sends best regards.

Spellissy, P. N.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Spellissy would like some extra copies of the general index of "Brownson's Review." He needs four numbers of Brownson to complete his set and he would like to buy them from Hudson if possible. He wants the index unbound. Spellissy wishes Mr. Kehoe of the "Catholic World" would do the same, but he believes it would not pay.

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

"Crowned with Stars" has received its first incipient touches. Work will be continued on it. Miss Donnelly would like Hudson to forward "Our Blessed Lady's Sleep" which appeared in October 1868. She would like a May poem that was in one of the May issues of 1879. Regards to Father General.

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

Hudson's letter received. Egan wonders how Hudson puts a glow in every line. Egan has noticed an article about "Preludes" in the "London Tablet" and the writer is not fair to his sonnets. However, they do have a lack of pause in the octava which is caused from following too closely the Italian form "En Manchi." Hickey would like the September issue of the "Irish Monthly" and sends his love. Hickey regrets Hudson did not give them a chance to show him some hospitality this summer. "Scribner's" informed Egan that Hudson's name is on their list. The Georgetown article is weak, but wait until Egan does Notre Dame.

Emery, S(usan) L.: Dorchester, ( assachusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Emery reports on subscriptions for the Ave Maria. She shared the $5 received for "St. Rose of Lima" with Miss Churchill. She used the Water of Lourdes herself and received marked benefit from it, and the other bottle was given to a protestant friend. She hopes to be confirmed on Rosary Sunday as she needs God the Holy Ghost very much. She wishes God's Divine will may be her daily necessary food.

(Leray), Sister Vincent: Griffon, Rennes, (France)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: Chateaugiron, France)

She has announced his visit to their Mother Superioress and the latter does not agree that it would detract from their retreat. She thanks him for the good reception he gave them and the good day's journey he procured for them. Her superioress wished to get another for her, permitting her to spend yesterday at Redon in order to see their good Ursulines. She thanked her because, if she had known this before going to Chateaug(iron), she would have asked to take Aurelia, whom their Sisters do not yet know, and since she does not have any money of her own and all these little trips ought not to be at the expense of the Community, She has been obliged to delay until later the satisfaction she could have shared with Sister Marie and the other Sisters. She does not have time to write to the family, and she asks him to thank them for her. Her superioress sends her respects, and her companions ask his blessing

Lynch, (Father) J(ames) S.M.: Conoes,
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He sends the answers to the questions in relation to the Stations of the Cross. Hudson may have difficulty reading them. Lynch does not claim any originally as the works were copies verbatim from books. It is a good idea to give correct information regarding the stations as in many places indulgences are not gained due to ignorance of the subject. It would be best to publish a pamphlet on them. Hudson should send the Ave Maria to Father J(ohn) F. Woods, D.D. as he succeeds Lynch at Troy. McGee would like to be a regular subscriber to the Ave Maria.

McGee, J. A.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (CSC): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

McGee informs Hudson that the "Illustrated Weekly" is not dead and will soon be resumed. Many subscriptions have been collected recently. McGee is satisfied he can make the "Weekly" a success. He plans to make it more a newspaper. Enclosed is a circular showing what the first issue will contain. McGee thanks Hudson for the notices. He wonders why he was cut off of Hudson's exchange list. The "Ave Maria" is missed. Regards to Professor Edwards and Father Zahm. (Circular Attached)

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

McGeoghegan has read the article by Eliot Ryder on Catholic poets of America and wishes to correct one of Ryder's statements. Mr. John Locke, and his family, have always been Catholics. Hudson should notice this in the next issue.

Leray, Sister (Vincent): Rennes, (France)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray): Chateaugiron, France)

She sends a few words before he leaves a family that loves him tenderly. She asks him to send news often and she thanks him for his little visit. She would have liked to have had more time to recommend to him all her spiritual and temporal needs and all those of the community confided to her care. Since the good Lord wishes it, he should go to his dear America which has cost him so many sacrifices. She hopes on his return he will not have to count empty spaces as he had to do on former trips. Aurelia must feel strongly about the one whose place no one can fill. Sister regrets that Leray could not place her at Redon for a year. At her age she would have realized the value of it. Wednesday he will be passing near by and she will follow him in her mind. (P.S.) They send respects to Father (C.) Mahé, who, they hope, will not forget their desire for news.

Baker, Sadie L.: Oswego, Ill(inoi)s
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

"Jill's Migonette" was to be the next story. She used to skip the end of a story when it ended with a moral. Is a story with a purpose a story with a moral? If the story is published Hudson should deduct $1 for the Children's Relief Fund for Ireland and credit it to "A Contributor."

 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: (Paris, France)

When Perché saw Leray at Paris twelve days ago, he forget to give him this letter which had gone to New Orleans and which he received in the first or second week of June. As it concerns a priest who is in the diocese of Natchitoches, he is a sending it to him, thinking that he is in Paris as he has announced.

Langevin, Jean, Bishop of: St. Germain of Rimouski, (Canada)
 to Archbishop N(apolean) J(oseph) Perché: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Langevin has recently learned that Perché had placed one of his former priests (Father F.X. Guay) at Marksville as pastor. This priest has given great scandal in the past. After a long probationary period, Langevin decided to place him as an assistant at Bré. However, as he showed a medical certificate prescribing a stay in a milder climate, Langevin reluctantly permitted him to go to the United States a little more than a year ago. Since then, Langevin has been told, he has been in two or three dioceses and last November he had given great scandal in Green Bay. The Vicar general of that place furnished him with that information. Perché will probably hear from him directly before long. He should be watched very closely. All this is strictly confidential

Schlichter, H.: Columbus, Ohio
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Schlichter is convinced that he is preparing for his true vocation. Hudson is correct in saying that we cannot judge our neighbors intentions. If people were mistaken in Schlichter's behalf, there is reason to believe they acted in good faith. It was God who directed Schlichter's life for the past 12 years and not his creatures. He has had many trials and difficulties since leaving Notre Dame, which probably arose from his own conduct but he is doing his best to amend. Schlichter is making good headway in his studies and in teaching. Even though he may not reach his coveted aim, he is doing the work of God. Schlichter has arranged "A Case of Possession" for the Waisenfreund and it will be in print in the next issue. He will send 6 copies to Hudson. Mr. Weber may give 2 of them to his friend Father Frere, who is the author of the manuscript. The report of the confraternity has been missed by Schlichter, but he has not seen the Ave Maria very often. Father Granger has been more a father and friend even though their views do not always coincide. Granger will be glad to hear Schlichter did not forget the lessons he gave him.

She cannot write a continued story for less than $5 a page - the rate of other magazines. But it would not matter for a short article.

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

Hudson's letter received. Mail and travel has been impaired due to heavy rains that have swollen the streams. Dallas is pleased with Hudson's estimate of his paper. It seems as though the Bishops were afraid of the accusation of meddling in politics. This is at the bottom of their indifference regarding such questions as Catholic Chaplains among the Indians. A Bishop when questioned would probably say there were not sufficient priests for parish needs. If Congress grants our demands, we will not be able to provide them. Outside of the Catholic faith Dallas does not believe there is a conservative force left in the country, except in the services. In England the converts to the Church are from the class which makes the best impression on the people. The poor will always make the body of the church, but others cannot be neglected while carrying out the work of the Faith. There is some ignorance and prejudice about the Catholic faith and Dallas believes there is a party forming in the Army opposed to Catholicism. Several officer's wives made the remark that there were no Catholic Chaplains in the Army. A Baptist Chaplain is to arrive today, a Mr. Blaine, who is said to be a brother of the Senator. There are approximately 500 Catholics at Fort Clark, Texas. Dallas will do nothing to help the situation until the Catholic Bishops take up the work. Dallas agrees with Hudson on his article on possession. Dallas will have to do his part in the general court session which will occupy much of his time. Dallas discusses his daughter. Dallas did not meet Dr. Havard but his works remain to remind Dallas of him. A library donated by the Catholic Library arrived and Dallas finds nearly all of the books used by enlisted men. The papers Hudson sent and the Ave Maria are also in the library. Regards to Father General (Edward Sorin) and Mr. (Maurice Francis) Egan. Dallas would ask Hudson to came to Texas if he had more to offer after he arrived. It is rumored Dallas will be sent to Fort Duncan, on the Rio Grande River, opposite the Mexican town of Piedras Negras. Dallas will be in command at Duncan. Dallas would like Hudson to visit his wife's mother in Washington, Mrs. Masi. She will be very pleased to see Hudson. Mrs. Dallas sends kindest remembrances.

Ebner, O.S.B., (Father) Claude:
Devil Lake Agency, D(akota) T(erritory)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ebner sent Hudson a few items of news regarding a visit from their Vicar Apostolic. Ebner married a full blooded Indian couple this morning with a Nuptial Mass. The man is called Frank Okicitamain (Walking Soldier) and the girl Maggie Oicage (Growth.) The couple attended the Indian Mission School and are fervent Christians. The ceremony was attended by Indians and whites. The agent, Major and Mrs. James McLaughlin stood as witnesses. It is very consoling to see the Indians understanding marriages performed as a divination. There has been several marriages similar to this one and the Indians appreciate them.

Vauquelin, Baroness de: Avernes, (France)
 to (Archbishop Napoleon Joseph Perché of New Orleans?: Paris, France)

She thanks him for his precious letter and for telling her all those things which, she believes, she is far from meriting. She will do all she can to merit being consoled. They will, she hopes, always recall that they are "the children of the saints" as he told them at Avernes. She would like to see him and introduce him to the Duchess de Galira. She is sure that, with her great heart and her immense fortune, she could help him achieve his goals. She begs him to remember her dear and much-regretted husband, and she asks his blessing for herself, her son, their pastor and his flock.

Elder, W(illia)m Henry, Archbishop of Cincinnati: Cincinnati, (Ohio)
 to F(athe)r (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Elder asks Hudson if it was he who wrote about the case of Father Romain Weinzoepflen. (Written in pencil —"It was J.F. E. who wrote") The letter was mislaid in traveling. If it did not come from Hudson perhaps he will know where it did come from. Hudson should transmit it to Elder.

French, S. J.: Houghton, (Michigan)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Several issues of the "Catholic World" have been received since Hudson last wrote. Father Hewit's article on the "Genesis of the Catholic Church" has only been glanced at as French dreads serials. French has given up hope of hearing from Mr. Perkins. New scenes and duties have probably taken place of the old. French will return the magazines.

 to Father D(aniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(ian)a

Quigley thanks Hudson for the copies of the Ave Maria containing Judge Dunne's Oration. Quigley has just returned and found the pamphlets with the Ave Maria containing the history of possession. Quigley was working in New York attempting to raise funds for Our Lady of Sacred Heart Church, Brighton, Ohio. He asks Hudson to have the entire community make a novena for the welfare of his church. The church is $5,000 in debt and without a great blessing Quigley cannot save the church from being sold. He has some projects to aid; if they will only succeed.

Baker, Sadie L.: Oswego, Ill(inoi)s
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter received. Miss Baker had felt the objection to a series of stories. She tried to avoid the objectional features by making each one of the series complete in itself. She has two to finish. Miss Baker has resisted the temptation to tell at length the story of Cousin Ellen's Kansas farm, the slow and certain reformation of Bill Jones, and the Golden wedding of the elder Mr. and Mrs. Marshall. She condensed them all in one paragraph. She asks Hudson to pray for her.

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

Hudson's remittance received "Legend of St. Nicholas" a companion piece to "St. Martin" by now. They are both lovely sketches. Miss Churchill likes to do sketches of Saints. St. Nicholas Day comes on December 6. Providing her eyes hold out Miss Churchill has a Christmas story. Miss Churchill would like to get to Lourdes, Rome, or to Knock, but she fears her father would not consent to such a foolish thing. He may permit her to go to Rome. Miss Churchill will mail "Evidences of Religion" soon as her father has read all he cares. He is no longer as prejudiced as he was by small impressions.

Corrigan, M.A., (Bishop of Newark, New Jersey): South Orange, New Jersey
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Corrigan thanks McMaster for his kindnesses to him and believes that these kindnesses have been so demonstrative as to have influenced the placing of the Cross upon him which he has just received. He has done all he could to avoid the honor which the Holy Father has bestowed upon him and now it only remains to try his best to do the work assigned. McMaster's prayers will aid him at his new post. P.S. McMaster must have been detained very late in his office Monday night. Corrigan's dispatch came at one on Tuesday morning, just in time to make further rest impossible.

Ragan, A. Vanhook: Montgomery, L(ouisian)a
 to Father G(ustave) A. Rouxel for Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: New Orleans, L(ouisian)a

Thinking Leray was in Natchitoches he wrote there to see him in relation to the purchase of the old Catholic church situated hear there. The old house is in a very dilapidated condition. It was supposed to be on a lot given by Thomas Woodward. In surveying Ragan finds the church and graveyard on his land. He would like to buy the house and lot for a very low price. He is willing to deed several acres to the town of Montgomery to embrace the graveyard. There is no membership at said church, all having died or moved away. As regards his standing, he refers him to Major Will(iam) A. Strong, Secretary of State, and Messrs. Payne, Kennedy & Co., N(ew) O(rleans).

Wood, (Father) Cha(rle)s J.: Michigan City, Ind(iana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He received the Ave Maria and knew Hudson had not forgotten him. Many times Wood says to himself the familiar words of Shakespeare, "We are such stuff as dreams are made of and our little life is rounded with a sleep." There is as much faith in the world today as there was six hundred years ago.

On his last trip he was overtaken by darkness, lost his way, and spent the night in the fields. Colovin will put English on the French that Hudson sends. Toohey hopes Hudson has a pleasant vacation and that the Ave Maria will be strong and hearty.
