1881 Mar.
Fidelis, C.S.C., Brother: (Notre Dame, Indiana)
 to Father (Edward F. Sorin, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

His zeal for the success of the Ave Maria impels him to lay before (Sorin) a few facts which might be considered as the causes of its not succeeding better. He gives several examples, such as wrong names and addresses of the subscribers, illegible addresses, and the like, which cause many subscribers never to receive their copies and to discontinue their subscriptions. Since he and the Editor (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.) are not on the best of terms, he hopes Sorin will shield him from any trouble in the matter.

Welch, S.J., (Father) E H: Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to (Father) Daniel (E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is ashamed that he waited so long before thanking Hudson for his notes and the Ave Marias. He presumes they will not see Hudson there this year or he would have come before this. He hopes Sister M. of Ascension has had no further trouble with Miss Flynn. He sent for her once and she promised she would make no further demands on the convent, but he afterwards learned that she wrote a letter threatening legal proceedings. Therefore, he judged it was useless for him to see her again. Their present superior, Father (Jeremiah) O'Connor, (S.J.), left with Father (Bernard) (A.) Maguire, (S.J.) on February 1 to give a mission in S(an) Francisco. Father (Robert) Fulton is now at St. Lawrence's Church, N(ew) Y(ork). Father (Alph.) Charlier is still there. They have made many improvements in the church but he hopes Hudson will see them for himself before long.

Hendrick, (Father) Joseph W.: Rushville, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

He was referred to Hudson by H(enry F.) Brownson, and he asks that a copy of the Index to Brownson's Review be sent to him. He needs the Oct., 1847, Jan., 1863, April, 1862, issues to complete his set. Can Hudson furnish them?

E(gan), M(aurice) F(rancis): (New York, New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He heard that Hudson's note pleased Johnson immensely. Egan is sick and disgusted with the prejudices that bind Catholic writers like chains. It is kind of Hudson to heed his suggestions about "Preludes". P.S. He has no unkind feeling against Mr. (Eliot) Ryder. He took up the Emerson allusion only to keep it from being commented on by another in a way that might injure Notre Dame. Mr. Ryder has exceeding talents but his taste is often incorrect.

Home for Destitute Catholic Children Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana)

 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, (Michigan)

McKeown as a reader and student of Orestes Brownson's works, inquires about the plans, scope and nature of the forthcoming compilation of the works of Brownson, and asks for a copy of the index to the Review.

Otis, Elmer: Fort Lincoln, D(akota) T(erritory)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He writes for the cord of St. Francis. The priest there has obtained the faculties for conferring it. He has corresponded with Father (William) Corby about making Notre Dame the permanent residence for himself and his family. If he comes he will have the happiness of placing himself under the spiritual direction of Hudson.

Onahan, W(illis)m J: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Many of his editorial friends on the Catholic press are acknowledging Hudson's work in indexing Brownson's Review. He asks that a copy of the Index be sent to him. He does not have a set of the old Review. He sent what odd numbers he possessed to the University of Notre Dame. If the Index is for sale he asks that a copy be sent to the Chicago Public Library, or they will give him an exchange for it.

Vagnier, (C.S.C., Father) Tho(ma)s: Leo, Indiana
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has been trying to get them some subscriptions but the people there are slow and poor and not much given to reading, but he expects to get a few anyway. He would have written to Father (William) Corby when he received the last circular but thought it best not.

Benziger Brothers: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He thanks Hudson for his favor of the 1st in which he offers them the manuscript of a prayerbook for boys and young men. They might accept the offer if Hudson could order at least 500 copies of the book for his students at about the retail price. These special books are often without success unless pushed by the parties who originated them.

Browne M(ary): Dublin, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana)

She thanks Hudson for his letter. As to the MS., she leaves it all to him whether it should be published or not. She confesses she could scarcely believe her eyes and let the others speak first. In this way she knew they had all seen the same manifestations. She is sending an account given to the the correspondent of an English Catholic Paper. She also sends an account of the departure of the Carmelite Fathers for the Mission in Australia. P.S. She wishes they had something like the Ave Maria there instead of the abominable trash that their young people devour.

Burns and Oates: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

They have tried without success to procure the indices to the 1st and 2nd Series of the Dublin Review. Would Hudson care to advertise for them in the Bookseller & Publisher's Circular? The cost would be some 8 or 10 shillings. Mr. Hennesy sends his regards.

Elder, Bishop W(illia)m Henry: Cincinnati, (Ohio)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Father (Francis) Janssens has a private letter from Cardinal (John) Simeoni saying his bulls for Natchez will be sent as soon as possible. He wants to be consecrated by Archbishop (James) Gibbons and consults Elder about the place. Elder thought of New Orleans but sees two difficulties: Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché) might feel hurt at it being done there by Gibbons, and the expenses since the interests of religion demand that no additional burden be put in the way of his saving the credit of the diocese. Before giving Janssens an answer he wanted to consult Leray. Gibbons prefers Baltimore.

(18)81 Mar. 8
Borias, Father Antoine: (New Orleans, Louisiana)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Borias affirms that the honor of the priesthood and the good of souls decided him on the grave accusation which he made only after consulting his director and much prayer. Moreover, the result appears providential as the grace of God has touched the heart of this colleague who acknowledges his guilt. He reminds (Perché) of his desire for a country parish for reasons of health. He would be happy to cede Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, a good parish where he has paid all the church debt, to Father (Celestin M.) Frain, a holy priest who is dying of boredom. If (Perché) does not give Frain a parish, he does not have much chance of getting one from Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray since he is not in the latter's good graces. Having first learned that Father (M.) Forges has left Breaux Bridge and does not wish to return, he believes he could do well there. He has been told there are many well-disposed Negroes there who would be good Christians if the priest occupied himself.

1881 Mar. 8
Boursetty, J(ules) de: Rome, (Italy)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Boursetty has received (Perché's) letter of Jan(uary) 19 and they are happy to hear that everything is going as he wishes. He has frequent conversations with Cardinal (Louis) Jacobini, the Secretary of State. The matter with which he is concerned and which is in response to the wishes of Pope Leo XIII was definitely settled last Feb(ruary) 4. (Perché) along with all the bishops will receive an official communication about it. Boursetty has been spending all his time between the Vatican and the Osservatore, which they are going to absolutely transform. The Universal telegraphic agency will be functioning soon. He asks (Perché) to indicate someone at New Orleans who would correspond with them. Leo XIII is not popular; the attitude of the nuncio at Paris (Archbishop Valdimir Czacki) is very misleading and as it is supposed that he is acting according to the Pope's instructions, the latter's unpopularity increases. Bishop (Charles Emile Freppel) of Angers, the Univers, the Civilisation and others are on the index at the nunciature and at the Vatican. (Paul de?) Cassagnac in a remarkable article of Feb(ruary) 25 indicts all those opportunistic gentlemen who pay for their violet cassocks with betrayals. Poor (Bishop Jacques Edmund) Bellot des Minières is very badly treated, but he merits it, for his pastoral letter is incomprehensible. It concludes with a eulogy of all those who have taken measures against the congregations. The nuncio does not know the French character and is completely mistaken about the sentiments of the Catholics. Political measures in the region taken from Italy appear to be adroit, but the situation is very dangerous in the area where Boursetty lives. Father (Louis) Millériot died at 82 years of age. He was really a saint. Someone will certainly write his biography. Everyone asks about (Perché) including (Marquis) Baviesa, who is now General of the Noble Guard, and the Pope himself has sought information on his health and his trip. There are great changes in the personnel at the Vatican. Boursetty believes that Cardinal (Lorenzo) Nino, presently prefect of apostolic palaces, will be named president of the Congregation of the Concilio, and that Archbishop (Alessandro) Sanminiatelli (Zabarella) will go to Pisa as Archbishop and be replaced by Monsignor (Gabriele) Boccali, the pope's secretary and the man with the most influence at present. The Holy Father will hold chapel several times each year at the Sistine which has not been done since 1870. Finally, great preparations are being made for the Canonization of Benedict Labre. It is hoped that (Perché) will be there in his position as assistant to the throne. (Paul Emile) Théard's matter would have been settled already if Théard had not written to Boursetty to suspend all steps. The "master singer" whose letter (Perché) sent to Boursetty will get nothing for his trouble. Boursetty will soon have an opportunity to see the Archbishop and inform him about it. The question of Father (Hippolyte) Leneuf is the order of the day at the congregation; the inquiries are excellent, but from New Orleans there come many foolish machinations. Perché asks about Father (Hyacinthe Claude) Mignot; the total and the details are all in Perché's possession.

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

Had Gentille been aware of what Leray's letter of the 3rd purports, he would not have troubled him with two letters, but he imagined that the charges of St. Sulpice were $300 to $400 yearly. Imagining (Willie Colgan) a fit subject for the ministry, he did not hesitate to write to other parties and from the (Jesuits) of Grand Coteau he received the moderate terms submitted to Leray. Leray's letter settles the whole affair.

He thanks Hudson for sending the "Index to Brownson". He does not have the Review but hopes to get such portion of it as Henry Brownson intends publishing. He will ask Dr. (P.F.) Quigley if the Seminary received copies of the Index. Revs. (Charles V.) Chevreaux and (John) O'Connor will acknowledge receipt of their copies. He hopes Hudson is fully recovered from his illness.

Otis, Elmer: Fort Lincoln, D(akota) T(erritory)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has just received Hudson's letter with manuscript. He does not think it advisable to publish the manuscript because it would not do any good and might bring upon Hudson and the Church the enmity of the Masons. He was a very high Mason before he became a Catholic and never heard of a case such as the one described in the manuscript, which he comments upon. Let the Church work openly in its condemnation of Masonry without mentioning special cases like the enclosed. He has not written much of late. His health is improved and he will not require a sick leave. He hopes to make his home at N(otre) D(ame) before long.

He sent Hudson a copy of the "Sacred Heart Union". It is published in the interests of the Catholic Protectory at Denville, N(ew) J(ersey), for the protection of homeless and destitute children. Hudson should read it and give it a notice worthy of its object.

Van Gennip, Father John: Cheboygan, (Wisconsin)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Van Gennip has received Brownson's letter including $200 from J. O'Connor of Wayne and expresses his thanks. He will extend the time for O'Connor's paying his debts, if he keeps on paying and if Brownson approves. He does not want his temporal disadvantage but neither may be deprive the poor of their dues. He wishes Brownson God's choicest blessings, temporal and spiritual.

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

The translation sent was not intended for the Ave Maria but as an answer to a wish expressed in the Ave Maria to find someone able to put the Petites Lectures in good English, to be published in a book. The young man who translated the part sent to Hudson thought he intended to publish the book after its translation.

Reynolds, Margaret G. H.: Boston Heights, (Massachusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter of encouragement has given her much pleasure. She had often asked Our Lady to raise up another "Young Crusader", which was also for the young and edited by Rev. William Byrne. Hudson might write to Father Byrne about her because her attempts at literature were favorably looked upon by him and he often encouraged her to persevere. She encloses an old number in which appears a story of hers under the initials M.G.H.R. That was many years ago and she should be able to write something better by this time. She will begin this evening. Although she should fail to suit the Ave Maria she will always be grateful for the prompt way it reached out to help her.

Hudson's letter of Dec.18 reached her safely. She is thankful for the beautiful Agnus Dei and is wearing it on her scapulars. When she goes to Montreal or Toronto this spring she will have a photograph taken and send it to Hudson. They are having Forty Hours Devotion now. Their priest, Father (P) Farrelly, is making great preparations to give their new Bishop, Dr. Clearly, of Ireland, a grand reception on his arrival here. Will Hudson kindly say four Masses for her? She sends four intentions.

Immaculate Conception, (M.S.C.), Sister Mary of the Academy of the Holy Angels New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Sister Mary of Sainte Albine, (M.S.C.), directress of their house on rue Hospital, has informed her of what Leray expects of them concerning the property what Leray expects of them concerning the property situated on that same street where their Academy of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and St. Mary's parochial school are located. They are willing to make the repairs, but they ask him for written assurance that he will leave to (the Congregation of the Sisters Marianites of the Holy Cross) the peaceful enjoyment of the property.

Mary of the Immaculate Conception, (M.S.C.), Sister New Orleans, (Louisiana)

In reply to his letter she tells him in writing what she told him verbally at the episcopal palace. Grima about a month ago asked her if she wished a share of a sum of money left by (patrick) Irwin for the orphans. She replied affirmatively.

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

He celebrates the first day of his Novena to St. Joseph by sending Hudson a sonnet in his honor for the Ave Maria. He has been negligent in acknowledging Hudson's kind note and the copy of the N.D. Scholastic Annual. His only excuse is that his semi-blindness continues. He has been recommended to foreign physicians but they would undoubtedly relieve him of every cent he has and the remnant of sight. He is losing faith in science but he is in a humorous vein. It is wonderful how fasting and prayer will cheer up despondent spirits. He is usually happy and his only trouble is that he is not busy all the time. He is grateful that he has not lost a day from his position. He often thinks of Hudson and other dear friends. (Maurice Francis) Egan wrote him lately and he rejoiced when he joined (James A.) McMaster. P.S. A call from their mutual friend, Father (H.J.H) Schutjes was productive of a good deal of sparring in a quiet way. Hudson's name was frequently mentioned.

Smith, Sara T.: Binwood, P(ennsylvani)a

She thanks Hudson for his enclosure of March 3. Her want of money is so pressing that she sets a high value even on $3.00. After March 25 she and her mother will move to Phila(delphia). She rejoices in the near vicinity of churches and the benefit of the Sacraments, from which she is practically excluded now.

Some of the quotations she sent were from "An Old World as Seen by Young Eyes". Has Hudson ever read the book? It is published by the C.P.S. and is very interesting. She might have sent more extracts but hesitated lest they should not be fresh enough.

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

It has been some time since he wrote to Hudson. Why didn't Hudson send him an account of the pearl's marriage with the oyster? He was surprised to find in one of (Eliot) Ryder's poems in the Ave Maria an allusion to Father (William) Corby's "Mellow Wine". Will Hudson speak there Easter? Capt. Slicer often speaks of Hudson.

Banenez, Angelo: Rome, Italy
 to James Alphonsus McMaster: (New York, New York)

To answer a general desire expressed by Pope Leo XII, the director of the Osservatore Romano takes the initiative to form a powerful organization from which they hope the most happy result. The most important interest of this organization consists in the creation of a telegraphic agency at the service of the Catholic press in the world. Up to this day the monoply of all telegraphic systems belongs to their adversaries; the Catholic newspapers are everywhere tributary to agencies notoriously hostile to the Church. Such agencies are also very poorly informed on those things concerning Rome and the Holy See. These agencies take a pleasure in naturalizing not only the most legitimate of the Faith, but also, the intentions and the words of the Pope and of the Bishops. Consequently, they want to stop a situation so prejudicial to the interests of the Church. Established on solid foundations, with necessary funds and powerful friends, this telegraphic agency would be Universal and would be assured of the help of good correspondants all over the world. Its seat is in Rome in the offices of the Osservatore Romano, and in Paris. Other places will be open in Vienna, Brussels, Berlin and in all important towns of the continent. The working of all these offices will begin as soon as 5,000,000 francs capital will be subscribed. But the Rome agency will be soon ready to work and they will publish a list of the different tariffs. The purpose of this letter is to make known the legality of the agency and to ask for collaboration and encouragment. An answer is asked from everybody.

Presentazione and Purificazione, (C.S.C.), Sister M. della (Holy Cross, Indiana)

Many thanks for "Meditations on the Way of the Cross" given them last Tuesday. They are glad Hudson still has their spiritual interest at heart. They have read and re-read the book Hudson sent last spring and each time it seems new. They recommend four intentions to his prayers. Oliver received Holy Communion this morning.

Hickey has a new undertaking; he is indignant at Egan's treatment of the Irish question in the New York Freeman's-Journal. He hopes to visit Notre Dame soon.

He meant to send the enclosed sonnet sooner but has been busy with a mission. He did not see the Ave Maria with his last contribution; it must have reached Louisville the day he left. He has done only two of the station sonnets. If he cannot finish them for this Lent, they must keep. He will be here until Sunday, then on to Quincey, Mass(achusetts) for a two weeks' vacation. He was pleased by Mr. Eliot Ryder's invitation, but his superior would not approve of his having any a secular poems. On the opposite page he sends some intentions to be commended. (This page has been torn off.)

Jenkins, (Father) T(homas) J.: Hardinsburg, K(entuck)y
 to Father (Daniel S.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Yesterday he sent a MS. entitled, "Lady Day", but fears he is too late again. He just returned from an exhausting trip to Union Co. and hastily wrote it up for Monday's mail. It is unsatisfactory even to him because of the haste with which it was written. Regarding "Christian Counsel", there is matter left in original for about 12 such articles as Hudson has published. He will leave the title of the German story he is translating as it is in the original - "Marienkind" - because the English translation is not as appropriate. Hudson should tell him how and when he wants this MS. sent. He is going to write it as a thanksgiving for favors received from Out Lady. He lectured in the Church of Assumption, Evansville, (Indiana), on March 8 and was most kindly received by Father (Eugene F.) McBarron. He spoke on "The Long and Short of American Protestantism", and points out some of the highlights of his paper. He is going to offer it to the Quarterly Review after revising it. He encloses a paper entitled "Contemplations on Divine Love by an Idiot" and asks if Hudson can use similar articles to fill in unfinished columns in the Ave Maria.

O'Meara, Kathleen: (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana)

The letter Hudson alluded to must have miscarried. She received his of Feb. 17 two days ago. She is amazed at the printers not being able to read her friend's letter. She has never had complaints from publishers or printers about it before and hopes that they have found someone to decipher it by this time. Her friend has taken great pains with a ms. which she subjoins. It is a story which is as yet undivulged and which would be nice for the Ave. She protests against Hudson's hit at the printer's perversity in the matter of French words and names. She knows her writing is very careless andyet she finds that they very seldom make a mistake in her prose. She is glad Hudson liked P. Besson. She has just received a very fine life of St. Genevieve.

Hudson's kind letter giving such a generous subscription would have been answered but for the press of proofreading, which is her first duty now. The work is going on splendidly and she hopes to meet her expenses. No order has been so generous as the Holy Cross. They all cry out for cheap premiums. God helps an author who has His glory at heart, but why do not others see this. She asks Hudson to pray that her niece, Mary Starr, has a safe voyage to France (and in the end to heaven) as she is now on the high seas.

Richie's death occurred Saturday morning after a short illness which she describes. Mrs. Mohun has been ill also.

The copy of Miriam arrived in due time. They were glad to see Father Aegidius (Hennemann, O.S.B.) properly honored and valued. It pained them to hear the unkind remarks made whenever his name was mentioned. It was said that he came to America because he was rebelling against his superiors. She is writing to ask Hudson three questions. First, where can she get the collection called "Puzzles and Oddities" by M.A.A.D. and what is the price? Second, is Father General at Notre Dame at present? How long will he remain or when will he return? She wishes to send him something. Third, could Father General furnish her with a letter of introduction to Archbishop (Patrick A.) Feehan the next time she goes to Chicago? She prefers to be introduced to him from her own diocese. Her mother is almost as usual.

Yesterday she sent 29 MS. Pages of the Memoirs of Father (Isaac) Jogues. She has the same amount on hand, translated, but not yet revised and copied. These annals of what the servants of God have suffered are the most inspiring kind of devotional reading. She has obtained access to some other works of reference on these missions and together with what she has she will be able to present quite a biography. They intend to break up their household and since she does not know where she will be a month from now she will devote every hour possible to this work. Hudson can pay her for each article as he receives it. (A poem, entitled "Ave Maria", is written on the last page.)

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

Hudson's kind letter was duly received. In the last number of the Ave Maria he noticed a quotation from a Protestant contemporary, in which injustices of the government to its military services is noted, and the end of "Raphael". Hudson deserves congratulations for the last because it was a beautiful story, though it was very long. They are indebted for the Protestant quotation to the Catholic "Visitor" of Richmond, V(irgini)a, which is doing good work under Father (John J. ) Keane. The recent election of (James A.) Garfield has made him feel gloomy. Aside from the fact that he is a democrat he sees no prospect for justice to the Army in the matter of chaplains. The tendency of the Republican party is anti-Catholic. He speaks of politics and the Church in the future. Once the school question is in the hands of the general government an open attack will be made on religious education. He encloses the first annual report of a society he may have told Hudson about. D Havard has not yet gotten rid of the French idiom so his report does not read as fluently as it should. Could Hudson make an extract for the Ave Maria? He has raised $275 for the church they are building. It is dreary work among the Mexicans and he cannot blame Father (A) Heyburn, (S.J.) for changing his residence to Bracket(t)sville, (Texas) and making (Fort Duncan, Texas) a mission once a month. Is he on the free list for a bound volume of the Ave Maria? He hears regularly from the girls. He speaks of Marie's curriculum and of Elise's difficulties in trying to be good. The children will be very disappointed if he does not come on this summer and he will leave no stone unturned to make the journey.

Although the parish owes him $2,000, he is inclined to act generously. He abandons the capital and interest, but in case sickness or accident renders him incapable he requires that the diocese and his successor be responsible for him for that amount. Done between Borias and Gonellaz in the presence of Father L(ouis) J. Chabrier and Father J(oseph) Roduit, S.J.

He has had many troubles but it was only this year that she learned that he was unable to say Mass for want of wine. She sent him 100 f(rancs) and a friend sent him 100 f(rancs) to say Masses. The money was confided to Father (Alexandre) Marchand who was embarking with Bishop Claude Marie Dubuis, C.M.. She has learned by her son's last letter of February 14 that he has not received the money, and Sister Aimée de Jésus of the Convent on Rue Bayou writes that Marchand had gone to see her in November. For three months he has had her son's money. He should send it to him care of Father (John Claude Neraz) Teyron or Neyron of San Antonio. This is the first and also the last money that she will be able to send her son.

Meany, M(ary) L.: Philad(elphi)a, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

A tedious spell of sickness has prevented her answering Hudson's letter, which came just as she was taken ill. She hopes the pieces she sent were in time. This illness also prevented her from seeing Brother Ferdinand. She was glad to hear from Hudson's letter that he had spoken with Miss (Eliza Allen) Starr about the Order. It is seven years since she wrote to Miss Starr from Nicetown about it. Bishop (James F.) Wood was disappointed by her answer for he had spoken highly of her. With the kind of friends she has she should use her great talents for Out Lady's service in a permanent way. She is sorry to bother Hudson with her troubles but wants to explain some things that look strange. The last time she saw the Lazarist Father who had been her director before the subject of a new Order came up he told her not to abandon the project as she then wished to do for it came in the way of her making a living and the lukewarmness of the clergy gave her no hope of its ever being started. If God wished her to give it up He would remove the thought of it from her mind. Yet another Father had induced him six years ago to advise her to leave Nicetown and come to her sister's house in order that she might banish this delusion. This, she learned after she left her sister's house in December, was the cause of all she suffered those years in 6th St. and of her sister's estrangement from her. Hudson's prediction that Our Lady is but trying her a little often comforts her.

One was an installment of "Father Jogues" and the other an article for the Children's Department. Does Hudson have on file the Nos. for 1879 of the Review of which she encloses the heading of the cover? In it is the commencement of a tale for youth, "Le treizieme fils de Jean-Pierre" by Charles Buet, which she wishes to translate for Hudson.

She will write to Father General (Edward Sorin) and Father Corby tomorrow. On the 25th she is to read a paper before the Chicago Fortnightly, all Protestants, on St. Benedict. She asks for remembrance in Hudson's prayers for special reasons.

Vagnier, (C.S.C., Father) Tho(ma)s: Leo, Indiana
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

What is going on at N(otre) D(ame)? Father J Toohey is back from Dearborn, Father J(oseph) Shea is going to N O, Father F Franciscus is Master of Novices. Who replaces Father Toohey in the Black Hills, and where is Father P Condon allotted? Could the Ave afford to advertise a turning lathe or scroll saw if he could get some firm to give him the machines? He has a fancy for such work and could make some useful things. He sends kind wishes to M. Annunciata on her feast day. He inquires about a wedding announced in the South Bend papers. P.S. What is the complexion of the Presbytery now?

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

He did not wish to send the enclosed (no enclosure) letter without a few greetings from himself and their friends in Rome. He does not have any news but hopes to find some at Paris where he will remain for Easter. (Perché) knows of the divisions among the Catholics in France and the polemics raised by the attitude of the nuncio (Archbishop Vladimir Czacki). Everyone (at the Vatican) is profoundly afflicted. Cardinal (John) Simeoni has asked him to send (Perché) his greetings in particular.

Hutchison, W(illiam J.M.): London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Hudson for his kind letter promising to read and make corrections on Dr. Bruno's book "Catholic Belief." The third edition is nearly sold out and he expects to hear from Dr. Bruno that he is preparing the fourth edition. Therefore, he asks Hudson not to delay in making the book more suited to the uneducated classes as well as the more refined. The misfortune about the book seems to be the too friendly way in which it has been noticed. The object is to instruct both Catholic and Protestant. They are glad to hear of Hudson's improved health. He has the joy of having a son a Benedictine priest at St. Peter's, Liverpool and another son, John Mary Pius, at school at St. Basil's, Hampstead, who are both well. He asks to be included in the petitioners for the May Ave Maria that he may recover his health and the use of his legs. He is sending a copy of Catholic Progress for March and a prayer on St. Francis. P.S. They remember the many kindnesses of Bishop (Francis S.) Chatard in Rome and beg his blessing when Hudson meets him. They also remember with pleasure the happy hours passed in Rome with (Eliza Allen) Starr. There are few such friends as she. He asks Hudson to save used American stamps for his little son, John Mary Pius, to be used for a collection he is making at school.

He sends a short tale which may be suitable for the Ave. He writes for the "Irish Monthly" and the "Weekly Freeman," and his stories reappear in England and American papers. Father Mussell would give him a letter of introduction but he does not believe strong hearted editors are influenced by such.

Edes, Ella B: Rome, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's note of January 15 was received only a few days ago; she imagines it was among the mail of the "Batavia". She has procured the promised "Faculties" and the photo of St. Thomas, etc. Those of St. Aloysius and St. F(rancis) de Sales are not good; the one of St. Thomas is pronounced the best extant. Father Carberry, Socius of the General of the Dominicans said the original was in their possession; she thinks the real original belongs to Cardinal Bartolini. Hudson said he had faculties for giving the Cord of St. Thomas and of St. Francis; she has not yet discovered who gives the cord of St. Joseph. She will inquire of the Augustinians about "the Cinctures". She enumerates the articles she has sent in. What does Hudson think of the Ireland agitation? The letters of the Bishop of Cashel are remarkable. The Bishop of Salford brought one and begged her to translate it and have it inserted in some of the Roman journals, not the "Aurora" which is a miserable paper. There is a rumor that Bishop (Patrick Francis) Morap of Ossory was questioned (?) about a telegram relative to a meeting of the Irish Episcopate to protest against the Papal Nuncio to be sent to England. This was confidential between the Holy Father and Moran; the latter made it public by calling a meeting to protest.

He has been snowed in several times this winter. His father is in poor health and he supposes this will be his (Ad's) last year on the road. He has made many friends. Grace is coming to visit his mother and he does not know how he will handle Daisie. He hopes Edwards will visit him this summer. He trusts that Edwards is in good health and is dispensing knowledge with that smiling grace.

Lippincott,:
J.B. and Co. Philadelphia, (Pennsylvanai)
 to Ja(me)s A(lphonsus) McMaster: N(ew) Y(ork), (New York)

Lippincott has received McMaster's very frank letter and has regretfully noted its contents. A certain class of the correspondence of the Lippincott Printing Company must be answered in a reactive way, and through an unfortunate mistake of the clerk's, McMaster's letters have been answered this way. This clerk should have made a distinction between the Freeman's Journal and other less influential organs. The firm sends McMaster a copy of the new issue of the Worcester Quarto through its New York agency and hopes he finds it satisfactory. P.S. Lippincott asks that a marked copy of the Journal containing the notice be sent to them.

The Ave Maria for March 19 did not come for either Fr. O'Connell or St. Malachy's. She disagrees with one of the Ave's correspondents who complained about the length of "Raphael." They were very pleased with the fine translation from a great writer, and hopes its length will not deter Hudson from accepting something equally good when it is offered.

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

She is sending a copy of an article written in behalf of her community and hopes that Hudson can use it in the Ave Maria. They know how the Ave has already benefitted other communities. It is impossible to raise funds in their own distressed country so they must appeal to the friends of their religion abroad. She promises Hudson a share in the prayers and spiritual privileges offered to Benefactors, of which she encloses a copy. She begs prayers for her community and for the success of their work.

Reynes, Father (E.): Moreauville, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Reynes is forced to confess his lack of success in regard to the construction of the church, and the triumph of the little coterie which last year drove away Father (Paul E.) Simon. Father (J.E.) Chauvin, who visited Moreauville last week, can bear witness that with a little help from the parish he could say Mass in the new church at Easter. Last week, his parishioners having refused him any material assistance, he had to employ negroes. Saturday he was without resources and Monday he had to dismiss the workers and stop the work. After Mass on Sunday the old committee told him that nothing would be done for the church in order to force him to leave and that they would give the new pastor all the assistance necessary to build the church. He went to see the pastor at Mansura (Chauvin) and deeded the land he had bought from (Amédée) Boyer to him, and if he does not receive instructions from Leray in a few days, he will give Chauvin the keys, registers, accounts, etc. of Moreauville. He is asking his family for the means to come to New Orleans where he will place himself at the disposition of Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché). The debt amounts to $201 plus $100 borrowed from Eugene Gauthier to pay the workers. (P.S.) March 31, 1881. This morning there was a meeting with Lucien Boyer to continue the work without Reynes' participation. Reynes is going to stay with Chauvin and will return to Moreauville only in so far as is necessary for the spiritual needs of the parish.

He received Hudson's disappointing letter and will endeavor to change his mind about coming. If he cannot get someone else to take his place for that occasion, would Father (Thomas E.) Walsh, C.S.C. or Father (John A.) Zahm, C.S.C. come in his stead with an Easter sermon? When the feast of St. Peter in vinculis comes (part of letter missing). As to specimen of poetry Hudson sent, the author seems to ride his muse to death. Hudson should give him charge of the gymnasium, he seems so fitted for lofty tumbling. P. S. Hudson said the opening of his letters was always characteristic. He should reverse the judgment and come.

Company has consented to send out at his suggestion copies of the Irishman newspaper in which he has begun a series of "Knock Letters." The series began on March 5 and a copy has been forwarded to Hudson each week. He hopes this will meet the necessities of the case. If he had the strength he would gladly send everything of interest that occurs there.
