André, Father J(ohn) B.: St. Nicholas' Church, Louisiana
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

After receiving Perché's letter of December 18, he was able to meet with Father (Jean Pierre) Ponchon and Father (Claude) Jacquet only on December 19th at Father (Hyacinth) Gonellaz's silver jubilee. He informed them of Perché's letter. Jacquet replied that his boundaries were the same, running over Bayou Perché to the estate of Devésin Olivier for his line with Father (John D.) Flanagan. André's boundary with Jacquet runs in a straight line to the flat prairies. For Flanagan, there is the large marsh extending from the Devésin Olivier estate, then up the Bayou to the estate of Louis Grévemberg where it meets Ponchon's boundaries. André is taking the large part, passing by the ( ) Morési estate to Agricolo Grévemberg in order to join the Cypremort forests as far as the ( ) Callery residence. Cypremort proper belongs to Ponchon and the forest has been conceded to André by Ponchon as ordered by Perché. The area between Cotes Blanches and Cotes de Weeks extends about twelve miles and includes seven estates upon which a large number of Catholic families work. Because of the distance of the churches these poor people live without the assistance of religion. Therefore, he asks permission to build a chapel in the Cypremort forest in order to serve them.

(L'Estrade, O.P.), Sister Henri Dominique (Louise): Cette, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

She does not know how she has been able to go since September without writing to him. However, the last month of 1880 was filled with so much sadness for her that she did not wish to afflict him with it. She wishes him a very happy New Year. She prays constantly for him, for her mother and for Blanchette. Their reverend Mother sends her respects. Their pupils will never forget him. The Virarey and St. Quentin families ask to be remembered. He should return to France. She wept a great deal yesterday, the anniversary of her father's death. She likes to think he will soon be in heaven. Her poor mother is courageous about it and with Blanchette has gone to Roanne to stay with their old aunt, Mrs. Molé. The family is dispersed. On the banks of the Mississippi at St. John Baptist lie her father and her young brother. She asks (Perché) to convey her best wishes to (Jules) de Boursetty and to the letter's cousins who were so good to her mother.

( ), Clementine, (née Laffon de Ladébat): Paris, (France)
 to (Archbishop Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Although she can hardly write, she does not wish to let any more time go by without wishing him a happy New Year. They have had news of him from the papers, but she would prefer to have it from him. Her husband has not gotten any better and she is beginning to be discouraged. Jeanne is still the same.

Buffard, Father Theo(dore): Galveston, (Texas)
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Council of the diocese of Galveston met to discuss the case of Father V(ictor) Gury whose name Perché wants to blot out and replace it by the name of Father (J.L.) Bussant. The council feels this is an injustice to Gury because of his long and honorable service. From the words of Perché's dispatch, it seems the charges against Gury were brought by some priest or priests. Father (Anthony) Truchard denounced Gury in a letter to Buffard. Gury wants an investigation and wants charges against him made specific and proved. The council protests against the treatment of Gury until at least he is heard. Other members of the Council who also sign are Father J(oseph) Quérat, Father T(heodore) Hennessy and Father Jos(eph) Chromcik.

Lloyd,:
Geo(rge) E. & Co. Chicago, Illinois
 to (Father) D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

It would be difficult to describe the folding machine. They built one for Donnelly Gassette and Loyd which will fold, paste and trim a sixteen page paper twice the size of the Scholastic. If Hudson cannot visit them he should send a sample so that they may quote a price on it. Greetings to Mr. W(illia)m Stanislaus.

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

Did Hudson know Father Aegidius (Hennemann, O.S.B.) was in Little Rock, (Arkansas)? He sent a poem which she sends to Hudson. The priest in it is Father Gregory Rossi, O.S.B., a Saint of the Bavarian Benedictines. Did Hudson say last June that the pastor of South Chicago was an ex-Jesuit? She discusses the (Father Martin) van de Lear scandal again. She describes the meeting between herself and van de Laar at Miss (Eliza Allen) Starr's. The scandal has made her very sensitive. She comes in contact with "not refined and educated humanity but with plain rough honest hearts." She thanks Hudson for his patience.

Hyde, Edward A.: Kenosha, Wis(consin)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He received three copies of the Ave Maria with his poem "Ephphetha." He sends two more poems and hopes the readers will know that theologians have held that the majority of Catholics will be saved. The highest love of mothers is nothing compared to the love of God.

McQuaid B(ernard) J. Bishop of Rochester: Rochester, New York
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father (Ernest) Van Dyke informed Mc. Quaid that Henry expects to pay a visit to Washington in a few days. McQuaid suggest that Henry stop off at Rochester for a few days. It would give McQuaid much pleasure and he might be able to make the visit interesting to Henry. McQuaid thinks he can promise that Henry's life will be safe while under McQuaid's roof. There has been no evidence of dynamite or bombs so far.

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

In translating the tales, she hardly used her own judgement but set Hudson's opinion above her own. Tales ending in rewards of a material nature to the hero are worldly rather than Christ-like. Endings which assume conversion to the church are only partially correct - faith is only the skeleton on which a Christian life is formed. Christianity is largehearted: It condemns the sin, but pities the sinner. The need today is for tales that will cultivate "The interior life" - the life that unites the masses, as well as the rich, with God. Christianity, to remain progressive, must deal with the questions of labor and capital fairly, vigorously. The enemy sees the injustice of the world but proposes a remedy which must fail in its aim because it is altogether materialistic. Catholics alone can successfully deal with the question of making labor honorable. But Catholic publications are too full of "caste" to touch the question.

Genty(?), Father: Autun, (France)
 to (Archbishop Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Perché asks for information about Father (Alexander) Marchand, former Dominican and pastor of Torcy in the diocese of Autun. As pastor he has not given any cause for complaint, except that being constantly in demand as a preacher he has been absent from his parish too often. However, he does not appear to have all the practical judgment that might be desired. At least he has not shown it in a financial transaction that was the reason for his leaving the diocese. He borrowed money to buy land and then had to resell it at a loss when he could not repay the loan. To escape lawsuits he asked permission to go to America. Genty believes that he intends to raise money to pay his debts. (Perché) could probably employ him very usefully, if he watches him a little.

Hyde, Edward A.: Kenosha, Wis(consin)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana)

His poems "Star of the Sea" and "Behold thy Mother" are too good to throw away but not good enough for their subjects. Hudson shouldn't worry about hurting Hyde by criticizing him or refusing to publish his poems. If "The Types of God" makes one single better communion, it would be justified. Hyde was baptized a Presbyterian at twenty and suffered much before entering the Catholic Church. Father (J.M.) Cleary says Hyde is a "gin-u-wine Yankee." At An Arbor, Michigan Hyde learned that Protestant college professors are dunces whose unapproachable dignity keeps them from being found out. He had in mind starting a new church, but he who said "Seek and ye shall find" brought him into the true Church. His wife got a legal divorce by perjury, and his four children are not permitted to see him. He was baptized into the Church on Jan. 16, 1876 and will be forty May 1, 1881. He has thought of entering a religious house and Father (John) Casey gave him a letter of introduction to Father (Edward) Sorin, (C.S.C.) which he mailed last fall. But Father Sorin is in France and hence never answered the letter. He hopes to receive a letter from Hudson soon.

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

He thanks Hudson for the letter, good wishes and the beautiful gifts. He hardly hoped that his prayers for the relic would have been answered, but they were. He is glad Hudson's health has improved, and that Hudson met (Maurice Francis) Egan. Father H. (J.H.) Schultjes always speaks of Hudson. Shultjes contemplates building a church in West Bay City, (Michigan) soon. He congratulates Hudson on the fine appearance of the New Year's edition of the Ave Maria, and sends payment for his first (subscriber's) club.

White, Rhoda E.: Pisa, Italy
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She received a check for her letter about her experiences in Italy. She wishes Hudson could pay for the letters. She is writing a book for some distinguished noble ladies of Bologna on educating their daughters to be great women. She cannot see why Hudson will not accept advertisements in the Ave Maria. The loss of subscribers would not be equal to the advantage of employing the best writers. She would also introduce a column of receipts for cooking to increase circulation. She hopes Hudson did not find her last letter long on account of remarks about the government. She knows some in power and they have no desire to hurt religion more, but the extreme men will put them out and Rome will be occupied by desperadoes. Dr. B( ) O'Reilly has returned from Rome where he received great praise. O(')Reilly asks to be remembered.

He will sends as often as previous contributions are accepted and suggests that at the end of 3 months Hudson pay him what he thinks fit.

Hudson is right in making whatever changes in her poetry he sees fit. She hasn't quite yet caught the tone of the Ave Maria. Father (Patrick) Cronin thanks Hudson for the note and card.

Dallas, (Lt. Col.) A(lexander) I.: Ft. Duncan, Texas
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Hudson for the papers. Lt. (Frederick L.) Dodge is still at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Marie (Dallas) wrote that M(othe)r Angela (Gillespie) arranged for the stenography. Dallas sees Hudson's hand in this. He is a martyr to neuralgic headaches of late. He tells of a Mexican Christmas custom which is followed after Mass. F(athe)r (A) Heyburn went on a mission to Clark (?), and has neither seen or written to Dallas. Father Heyburn is attempting to build a church. Dallas secured $120 through friends in the east for it. He wonders if Elmer Otis is still at Notre Dame, (Patrick V.?) Hickey sent him a Bombay paper in which Dallas' effort for the Ave Maria was reprinted.

Llewellyn, H( ): (Boston, Massachusetts?)
 to (Father) D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

Llewellyn asks for the table of contents to the Ave Maria for Vol(ume) 16, 1880. The poorest specimens were selected for the beans that were strung, lest the operation fail. They are building a church in "that Gomorah of a town", Falmouth. Father (Josue P.) Bodfish and Llewellyn are the first fruits of the faith delivered out of its depths. They are sorry for the benighted people. Llewellyn would like sweet revenge upon them for the misrepresentations made in their young days.

Bonnin-Matray, a practicing Catholic of the diocese of Autun, loaned to Father (Alexander) Marchand, a priest who in now in (Perché's) diocese, 5000 francs on December 8, 1878. Marchand promised to repay it in six months. The following October he wrote Marchand asking him to take steps to pay on December 8, 1879. Marchand replied that he would pay on January 5, 1880. Today he owes him 5,500. Bishop (Adolph Louis Albert) Perraud assured him that he would be repaid without delay. He has still not received anything and now Perraud blames him for not having pursued Marchand judicially. He could not do that because it would have cause a public scandal. He asks (Perché's) assistance. (Perché) should write to Father ( ) Netteaut, Bonnin's confessor.

She awaits word from Hudson if Father (Edward Sorin, C.S.C.) will write the preface to the new book.

Seton, Msgr. Robert: (Jersey City, New Jersey)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Seton does not want his name on anything he writes for the Ave Maria, since it would look pretentious. He has a note from Mr. (Eliot) Ryder expressing pleasure that Seton will be at Notre Dame in the summer. But he has half agreed with Father (F. Wm.) Gockeln, S.J., President of Fordham University, to go to Georgetown College for commencement. He thanks Hudson for "Mementos of a Retreat," which are, as Waller says "infinite riches in a little space." He asks to be remembered to the President (Father William Corby, C.S.C.), to Brother Polycarp, (C.S.C.), Mother Angela (Gillespie) and Eliot Ryder.

Lambing, (Father) A(ndrew) A.: Pittsburg(h), P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Father Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He decided to make some changes in his "Masses for the Dead", after reading Judge (Edmund F.) Dunne's letter. He will take some more ideas from Father (Frederick William) Faber and other sources. This will be delayed since he cannot easily get (Father Henry James Coleridge's) "Prisoner of the King". The visitation of the congregation is almost finished and he will have more time to devote to other work. Debts prey heavily upon his mind. The extra copies of the Ave Maria he asked for have not come. He has had no word from Father (James E.) Fitton as yet. He will send an article next week.

Gentille, Father Jos(eph): Shreveport, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: New Orleans, L(ouisian)a

Gentille is convinced that a young boy, Willie Colgan, would one day make a good priest. Gentille has written to the priests at Grand Coteau about training the boy. The cost will be $200 per year or $240 if he stays there during the vacation. The boy's parents, who are poor, will clothe him. Gentille asks the diocese to furnish $140 and his parish will furnish the other $100. If these conditions meet with Leray's approval, Father Gentille will take the boy to Grand Coteau.

Marine, C.S.C., (Father) A.: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Hudson for the note in the Ave Maria on the "dear Sacred Heart." They reduced their debt from $2671.80 to $1861.20 in 18 months. Marine has letters from Father General (Edward Sorin, C.S.C.). Sorin's situation does not seem happy. There is a decision from Rome which Marine cannot approve. Hudson would say the same if he knew the bitterness which flows from Father Ch(arles) Moreau's (C.S.C.) heart against Father Sorin. Sister's situation is not understood in Rome, and Sorin has no advocate there. Marine has no object or occassion to be kind to the administration at N(otre) D(ame), because they sent Father (William) Demers (C.S.C.) to New Orleans. Marine will go to the archbishop and get (Demers) interdicted if he makes trouble. The church is going well and the parishioners like him.

Ménard, Father L(eonard): Alexandria, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Two or three years ago he begged Leray for altar stones for chapels newly erected. As it was not possible, he contented himself with the only portable stone they had. It is now broken. Last year he had three new altars built. If Leray can not furnish them, he asks him to let him know where they can be obtained. In reference to the act of donation of land for Harrisonburg's church, he thinks the donor has altered his mind and that he will have to buy a lot with money he wanted to spend in building. Father (John Baptist) Avenard is far from being well. If the Sisters (of Mercy) want to succeed, they do not take the proper means. In Pineville from 28 scholars last year, they had only 3 last month. They have excluded the poor. Last August Ménard offered them $25 per month and their ferriage: they wanted more. He deplores that those who were to feel the effect of religious training will be deprived of it.

He asks Hudson to forgive him for bringing up the unmentionable subject again. He alludes to past incident and conversation. In reading his Mother's letter, he was overwhelmingly selfish. Hudson's own emotions were visible. He sends Hudson some verses which contain bits of his theology. If Hudson is at times disgusted with his seeming levity. Hudson must remember that beneath it is a tumultous ocean which threatens to sweep him away from all that is good.

Coughlan encloses a copy of a letter to Archbishop Perché. Later he will send a list of all the objects that were in the college when he took charge as well as those he bought and left there.

 Enclosure: 

1881 Jan. 13
Coughlan, Father M(ichael): Loreauville, L(ouisian)a
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph) Perché: N(ew) O(rleans, Louisiana)

When Coughlan spoke to him about the college of New Iberia last month, Perché told him to put it will in writing. He reminds him that the college had failed completely when he was charged with it, that it owed several hundred dollars which he paid, and that Perché himself paid approximately $1000 due on the institution. Several times he asked to leave. A little before Perché's departure for Europe, Perché had negotiated through Father (Joseph) Anstaett with the Brothers of Mary for the purchase of the college. One brother accompanied by Anstaett examined the college and made a favorable report to his superior. Father (Claude) Jacquet knew of this. The yellow fever and quarantine of 1878 hurt them a great deal financially. The flood of September 1879 destroyed the church at Fausse Pointe, several persons were killed, and the harvest largely destroyed. Coughlan then went north to seek funds to rebuild, leaving the college in charge of three professors. Hardly had he left, when Jacquet began scheming to take over the college. He wrote to Father (Henri Parmantier) Parmentier of Galveston to get ready to come as a professor. Finally, when Parmentier was on the way to France, Jacquet took him. Parmentier is not qualified. Until that time Jacquet had always said that he wanted nothing to do with the college, and Coughlan had not had the least trouble with him. Several weeks after Coughlan left, Jacquet took possession without any authorization. He dismissed several negro gardeners and without their surveillance many objects belonging to the college and Coughlan were stolen. If Jacquet had waited until the end of the school year the money due could have been collected and the few debts paid. Besides his salary, Coughlan has made repairs on the building costing about $350, he left there a brass band which cost him $130, class books worth about $60, a new stove $50, and several other articles. Jacquet took two cows belonging to Coughlan. One died in his possession leaving a calf which Jacquet killed and ate. On Coughlan's return, Jacquet gave him $3 for the calf and nothing for the cow. Now Jacquet refuses to pay the debts of the college. When charged with the college, Coughlan paid debts he had not contracted himself and in his more than six years there he did not received half his salary. He has been charged with a parish and his predecessor in leaving took all the money for the pews. Since then the church has fallen down and all the money he can get he is using to build a new one. During Leray's absence, the v(icar) g(eneral) decided that Jacquet should pay the debts of the college since they were not personal debts. Jacquet paid Mr. ( ) Gagarty for the class books; he ought by the same token recognize his responsibility for the other debts.

(1) Indian Good Book, by Father Eugene Vetromile, S.J. in the Abnaki language. A small number of this tribe survive in the north-eastern part of Maine. (2) Dakota Vocabulary, by John P. Williamson. This illustrates the Sioux tongue. (3) Dictionary and Grammar of the language of the Cris, by Father Lacombe, Oblate of Mary Immaculate.

He did not know of Hudson's illness in the fall but sympathizes with him since he too was ill through Advent and the Epiphany. Had he known his illness would be so long, he probably could have procured help, even though he is isolated. Some of the faithful gathered each Sunday for the offices a layman could read. He has met Father (Edward) Jacker who is in Hancock, (Michigan). Jacker discovered the bones of (Father Jacques) Marquette, (S.J.) at Point St. Ignace. Jacker is a delightful man and a bookworm. He has worked among the Indians in this region since before Bishop (Frederic) Baraga's death. It seems that their friend ( ) Perkins has cut them completely. It may be he is tiring of Western life.

He received a copy of (Henry James) Coleridge's "Prisoner of the King" and thinks little of it. He will rewrite his "Masses for the Dead" though he has little time. It is bad to inherit another man's debts. B(isho)p (John Tuigg) will not send him anyone else, but he had 9293 confessions in 1880, which is a consolation.

He cannot see the good attained in publishing Father A(ndrew) A. Lambing's remarks concerning no indulgences for assisting at holy mass. It is a pardonable and harmless error. During 1880, he attended nearly seven hundred consecutive masses, at great inconvenience. He draws Hudson's attention to the use of the word "holyday." His pastor told him the former should never be used designating Church festivals.

He has been at Knock since the end of August, and will remain there till he recovers or dies. He included the Ave Maria in a list of addresses to receive the Dublin "Irishman." Hudson may count on his letters from Knock. If they have any market value, Hudson should send the money to Archdeacon (B) I. (Kavanagh) for the church and poor pilgrims.

Kuhls sends McMaster $10. $6 for the Freeman's Journal for 2 years and the balance for copies for the Freeman of the previous week. Kuhls is pleased by the letters of Pope Leo XIII, Archbishop (William Henry) Elder, and Rich(ard) White. These letters should be ready by all Americans, especially Catholics, who, as Kuhls has found in the 18 years of his experience, are the greatest enemies to their own schools. This condition will not impreve as long as New England and New York continue to furnish freeschooled young priests. Bishop (Louis Mary Fink, O.S.B.) of Levenworth, Kansas will not allow any child to make its first Holy Communion unless it has attended a Catholic school for at least two years, and in the future he may not ordain any priest who has not received a Catholic elementary education. If another McLane dies in New York, Kuhls hopes he will remember in his charities such papers as the Freeman's Journal, which furnishes at least 10,000 people weekly with a good Catholic paper.

Toner, (Father) P(atrick): Naples, Italy
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has not received the bill for the everwelcome Ave Maria. He has been in Naples for several months on the advice of his doctor, but the Ave is forwarded regularly from Biarritz, where he expects to spend the summer. He is unable to return to his parish but preached the Advent sermons at the wish of the Archbishop of Naples, and the archbishop allows him to preach and hear confessions at the church della Vittoria as long as his health necessitates staying in Naples. The climate is very favorable and Naples is a great Catholic city. He would prefer to return to beloved America and work in the mission there. It is sorrowful to see so many priests dying so young in Penn(sylvani)a and the rest of the states. Thank God he can still say Mass every day, and it is a consolation to be able to preach and hear confessions of the English speaking people. He sometimes makes a convert or brings a Catholic back into the church. He prays that the United States may be converted, but the difficulty is the infidel public schools. He does not know why the Bishops tolerate Catholics attending the public schools when there is a moral certainty that their faith and morals are corrupted thereby. It is better to have no knowledge except that which divine faith teaches than to have every science of this corrupt age and risk losing true faith and eternal salvation.

Father (Isaac J.) Hecker is one of her good friends and can upon request sepak in some detail of her. Madame de Forbin wants Jannes to send to Henry a small volume which she has just published in her leisure and which she hopes may interest Henry although the heroine is a French woman of the 17th century. But the 17th century is the common heritage of all Christians and of all sensitive souls. Jannes hopes to return to America some day and to take advantage of Henry's kindly offer of hospitality.

If he comes later he should take the Fort Wayne, (Indiana) road which connects at Canton with the road through Akron. (Manly) Tello recovered but must rest awhile yet before beginning work.

Boursetty, Jules de: Rome, (Italy)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Boursetty is leaving Rome and will return around March 15. Propaganda opposes every plan for liquidation and approves every plan for unification. It has telegraphed orders to pay the interest; it has written and awaits the reply of Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray. Perché should have received the "Correspondence de Rome." which forms with the "Osservatore" and the "Journal de Rome" the groundwork of the structure that Perché knows and which was strongly desired by Pope Leo XIII. Boursetty is going to Paris to assist in completing it. (Paul Emile) Theard's matter is at the signature stage. Cardinal (John) Simeoni and (Perché)'s friends at the Vatican ask to be remembered.

No doubt the newspapers have already informed him of the death of Marchaisse's uncle, Cardinal (René Francis) Regnier who passed away on January 4 after 6 months of progressive enfeeblement. Marchaisse is collecting all the documents he can in order to write a complete life. He asks (Perché) to send all that could recall Regnier, particularly his estimate of Regnier's course of philosophy at Beaupreau.

The lines enclosed were found at the grave of 'Sister Francis, lady Superior' and foundress of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum of San Francisco, on January 18, the anniversary of her death. They are the lines of one on whom Sister lavished her care, and if Hudson printed them they would be read with sympathy if not pleasure.

Jenkins, Father T(homas) J.: Hardinsburg, Kentucky
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He returns proofs, but defends his statements on foeticide in New England. He admits prejudice in some of his opinions but there have been many converts from the center of American scholarship. He does not accuse Hudson of Puritan New Englandism or of predelictions for the public school system, and therefore retracts his comparison of the provinces of Boston and Cincinnati. He wants more specimens like Brownson, Hewit, Preston, Stone, and Hudson. The establishment of thirteen parish schools, five or six higher schools, in the last twelve months attest to the importance attached to the question of Catholic schools since it was made hot in New England. He received the mementos and constitution. He requests the Ave Maria be sent to his mother and god-daughter. A Luxemburger, Father (M.) Oberlinkels, and his housekeeper are reading "Marienhind" for him and offering suggestions about "ungermaning" it. It has snowed for days. God help the poor in the cities; those in the country cannot well freeze anyhow.

(Panneau, Cecilia): Paris, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

She should have written a month or more ago so that this would arrive at the time for New Year wishes, but she has been sick. Their "Oeuvre de Famille" is advancing slowly because the times are not favorable, but they are able to do a little good. It is difficult to make a choice among the persons worthy of interest. She hopes he will send his blessing so that they may place it in their archives. It has been impossible for her to pursue the business from which she had hoped to draw some profits that she could send to him. The work of getting started has fallen completely on her because Miss (Claire) Née has been unable to help.

Prestat, Miss E( ): Reading, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana)

She received a letter from Mrs. Sidney Wanham of Nancy, France, the author of "Short Lectures", asking if the book could be published in English with profit. Last month an excerpt appeared in the "Ave Maria", and interested many readers. Mrs. Wanham asks for royalties; has Hudson decided what to do in this matter? A small sum of $25. would probably be satisfactory. The author engages in charity work that reaches others than the state charity, though she is not herself a rich person.

Cauvin, Father (Anthony): Nice, (France)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

On May 24, 1880 Leray informed Mr. ( ) Coudert, Cauvin's representative at New York, that in view of the financial distress of the Diocese he would not pay the interest on the $45,000 which Cauvin and others had loaned to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph) Perché. $25,000 was loaned to save the Church of St. Vincent de Paul from being sold for debts and a mortgage for that sum was given on August 23, 1873. The interest on the $25,000 was paid until January 1, 1879 with the revenues of that church, first by the pastor, Father (Etienne Jules) Foltier and then by Perché. For several years Cauvin was a pastor in America and he knows that each church pays its debts from its revenues. Last July he wrote to Father Gilbert) Raymond asking him to obtain at least the interest on that church debt. He makes the same request of Leray.

Hudson's enclosure of Father (James) Fitton's letter received. Lambing is glad they did not publish the articles, though he has had no time to revise them. The water of Lourdes arrived. The notice in the American Catholic Quarterly for his book was good. He is noting the errors pointed out so another edition may be corrected. He learned from a letter of B(isho)p Gilmour that Mother Angela (Gillespie) of St. Mary's is familiar with the early history of an interesting part of this diocese. He will write her and refer to Hudson's copy of the history (of the Catholic Church in Pittsburg and Allegheny). For a month he has been correcting the proofs of a translation made by a German priest, a friend of his. He has been quite busy, and gives a short detail of the day.

She encloses a letter to Eliot Ryder which Hudson may deliver if he chooses; he should not spare not spare advice to Ryder who needs it. She discusses various letters and relationships with Eliot Ryder, and prays for him even though he scoffs at her prayers. She prays Hudson may be the instrument in God's hands to save Ryder. Her little babe has had a cold since she left New York. She left because diphteria and small pox had reached almost epidemic form. She is going to the southwest when the weather is good enough to travel. The letter she sends Ryder by way of Father Hudson can only be understood if Hudson read Eliot's letter to her. His letter was a tissue of falsehoods, except for her unwillingness to tell her friends and relatives of her marriage. He complicated her business last summer by meddling where no possible good could result. She lives now only for her little girls, who will be educated in a convent with her wish never to leave it so no man may break their hearts.

She has no money, and no permanent address. She asks that the Ave Maria not be sent her any more. She will write another article in the industrial series if Hudson wants it.

He learned from B(isho)p (Richard) Gilmour (of Cleveland) that he erred in his History (of the Dioceses of Pittsburgh and Alleghney) concerning the Church at Brownsville (Pennsylvania), and that Mother Angela (Gillespie) of the convent at Notre Dame can correct them. Hudson should loan her his copy of the book. He will devote more time to his series of articles for the Ave Maria.

If ever the clergy of France must expatriate he will give him living proof of his strong affection in the midst of his priests. In any case if there is anything he can do for (Perché) he should not hesitate to ask. He has seen Mrs. (J.) Laffon de Ladebat who will reply in a few days, but she asked him to express her gratitude. Father Aygrieperse of Misericorde, whom Leris saw to ask about the costume of honorary canons of New Orleans, advised him to dress as he himself does.

She sends articles bringing music down to Haydn, and the article is long since she had to discuss the three great Catholic Schools of Rome, Venice and Naples. She would be glad to do articles on Beethoven, Schubert or Mozart. She walked in the footsteps of these men, and knows F(athe)r Josef Schubert who told her much of his brother Franz Schubert. She mentions this if Hudson wants anything on these almost modern Austrian Catholic masters. Her conscience bothers her since she has to teach 'heresy and schism' for a living in a Protestant school.
