1881 May 1
(Brownson,) Orestes (A. Jr.): Dubuque, Iowa
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Orestes thanks Henry for his favor of the 18th. and congratulates him on being rid of his dissolute partner. He trusts that Henry is prospering. He inquires whether Henry's son Philip, now 12 is to be a scholar or a lawyer, and asks about a report he has heard about Henry's putting out a new edition of their father works, if he has the time. He warns him of the greediness of publishers. Orestes has but few of his father writings but he reads and rereads them with pleasure. He asks why his review should not be a standard work. He sends his best regards to Henry's wife and children. His own family is striving hard to make a living and improving the farm. He has lost one horse, one calf and several hogs; the season for planting is very backward though they intend to work very long and hard. The family is in good health. His eldest son John (Brownson) has bought 5 more acres of land, for a total of 12 and has had one field fenced; he hopes to be able to build a small house in the Springs, and Orestes believes that they, being thrifty can do so. They have one child less than a year old. Orestes second son Edward (Brownson) 18, is large and stout and too wild and unsettled to be very useful. He has already been around on the river and railroads, but is just now home, doing some fencing for his father and brother. He is a natural musician and mimic but unwilling to study to perfect himself in that line. Orestes finds it difficult to keep him from such thing and to curb his strong nature.

1881 May 2
Mariné, (C.S.C.), Father A(lexander): Neuilly-Paris, France
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Mariné's family is tormenting him to obtain the autograph document that (Perché) offered him when he left; they wish to display it in the hall of family portraits and titles. In his last letter he said a few words about the grave difficulties resulting from the affair of the holy missionary (Father Louis Desseille) who died in the neighborhood of Chicago; he regrets to add that he would have been better off if he had refused to obey the Father General's (Father Edward F. Sorin, C.S.C.) dispatch to leave the parish of the Sacred Heart. A person should not be permitted to hear the insults and epithets addressed to the Father General in Mariné's presence, and the matter will be brought before Rome where Mariné will be obliged either to hear authority condemned or to condemn it himself and testify against it. The Father General is losing his memory and from that proceeds the most regrettable contradictions; successive letters bear no resemblance to each other. After having given Mariné in writing the widest powers to deal with an infinity of problems aggravated by the disappearance of the General at the very moment when the French Province, requires his presence and after having named Mariné Visitor General, he renounces him to men of affairs and, especially with the ordinaries who are unable to decipher the truth in the face of contradictory writings. He cannot bring himself to either accuse authority or to join in the memoirs being prepared against the Father General, and if he resigns he will have to give the reasons which could only reflect upon the Father General. Furthermore, he does not know how (Perché's) successors will treat him. At Brussels he had occasion to see Madame (Anna) de Meeus, Superior General of the Religious of Perpetual Adoration, and he asked her if she could not give something for (Perché) who is often solicited by very poor priests of the diocese (of New Orleans). The sheets for the year were filled, but she suggested that (Perché) have one of those priests make a formal request certified by (Perché). It should be done without delay. Despite his plans, he has not yet met with (Jules de Boursetty) Borsetti, and the Belgian matter having become more serious and more complicated, he has been unable to visit their procurator at Rome. Their priests in France have been expelled and are lost for the Congregation of Holy Cross; they do not wish to go to America and it is necessary to place them in Europe, but the bishops fear complications in sending former members of a religious order to vacant parishes. This letter is for (Perché) alone.

Schwink, Mrs.: Center, Rolls Co(unty), M(iss)o(uri)

Schwink, who died with the yellow fever in '78 along with her husband and her only sister, Fannie Hollingsworth, who became a Catholic on her death bed. Schwink is now left with a three year old girl and a six year old boy. She has lost all she had left to live on, so she came (to Center) to teach a school which she failed to get. She has an offer of marriage from a gentleman of Natchitoches, W.W. Clark, and she asks Leray to find out his reputation.

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

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

Clara (Dorsey) is slowly recovering from her illness, while Angie is still gravely ill. Dorsey requests (Maurice Francis) Egan's address, for she hopes he can dispose of the copyright of "The Legend of St. Dennis". The poem, entitled "Annunciation" she can furnished revised but she can't give it away. Hudson should know how scurvily she was treated by people at Notre Dame about her poem which was awarded the first prize of $300. Yet, the next Ave Maria announced that this sum which had been awarded for her poem was to be divided with George Miles for his poem entitled "The Sleep of Mary". The two chapters of "Warp and Woof" now in the printers' hands will be enough for four issues for the Ave Maria. Dorsey thanks Hudson for writing Mrs. (Madelein Vinton) D(ahlgren). She asks Hudson if he intends to publish his lecture on (Henry W.) Longfellow.

If the Brothers of the Congregation of the Holy Cross cannot supply a teacher, Thorpe will be forced to hire a layman. One thing is certain, Catholic schools must keep abreast of the state schools.

Reardon, Father Thomas: Easton, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Reardon thanks McMaster for sending him the case of table olive oil. His delay in thanking him has been caused by a trip which he has been forced to make. He feels to blame for taking more than 5 gallons of oil for the Sanctuary lamp, because that leaves but a small amount to pay on the Freeman's Journal. P.S. It will not be necessary for McMaster to answer this letter.

Roulleau, Father T. Ch.: Vera Cruz, Mexico
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

He had hoped to pey his respects to Leray before his departure but was prevented from doing so by a person he met. The trip was very easy. Vera Cruz is a city of 23,000; most of the houses and monuments are painted various colors. In the middle of each street there is a stream of clear water. A flock of crows are charged with keeping the city clean. They are going to leave for Mexico and he will send more ample details with the next boat. He would like some news of Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché)'s health.

Wolf, O.S.B., Father Innocent: Atchison, K(ans)as
 to James Alphonsus McMaster: New York, New York

Wolf, writing from St. Benedict's Abbey, encloses a clipping from the New York Tablet of May 14 (enclosure present) which has printed under the heading, The Vatican Policy, a paragraph that is unfit for any Catholic paper to include in its Roman Correspondence. It has evidently been taken from a non-Catholic paper and fixed up for publication. Similar paragraphs have been printed in the Tablet and other papers but if McMaster calls their attention to such offenses against the Catholic mind, the men of the scissors will be more careful. Wolf signs this W.M. because he does not want his own name drawn into the paper.

Oliver, (S.M.), Sister Mary Aloysius: Alexandria, L(ouisian)a
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

The (Sisters of Mercy) postulant arrived two weeks ago and likes the country. However, Oliver's niece could not stand the heat and returned by the same ship. She wrote last November that Sister Agatha (S.M.) had left, so they are six now. She is ready to build the convent but receives so much opposition from the priests that at times her courage fails her. Father (John Baptist) Avenard gave up the parochial school because it was too much trouble to collect the money, though she offered to do that. Father (Leonard) Ménard also gave up his school with another sham excuse, so that she was obliged to open a colored (Negroes) school which is doing very well. She asks him to tell her what to do.

Today is Egan's birthday. Egan has just finished an article on Calderon for "The Catholic World." Shall Egan alter the critique? Suppose Hudson cuts out that little bit at Jesuit architecture and says something else instead. Egan is delighted with Hudson's "Longfellow." He will do his best to get to Notre Dame. The family expects and event about the Feast of the Assumption. "The Freeman's Journal" is going well. ( ) Johnson sends his regards.

Brennan, (C.S.B.) Father W(illia)m: Toronto, (Ontario, Canada)
 to James (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Brennan, writing from St. Michael's College, encloses some pages for insertion in the Freeman's Journal (enclosures not present). Several admirers of the Journal are anxious that this article be printed. McMaster probably forgets Brennan entirely from the time they once met in the past. Brennan, then a sickly priest from Hamilton, (Ontario), was a member of the American Pilgrimage to Rome and met McMaster in New York. Brennan has always recommended the Journal to his people but did not subscribe himself for a while because two copies already came to the house. In the past 8 years he has been concerned with school matters and so dislikes to see such insertions as appeared in the Catholic Shield because they may create badimpressions among the Catholics of Ontario. Their primary or Separate schools are not in a flourishing condition because those in charge believe that anyone wearing a religious habit is a fit teacher for a Separate school, but this error has resulted in the sending of crowds of Catholic children to the public schools only to lose their faith and morals. Brennan intends to remain at the college for some time because of poor health and so asks that his paper continue to be sent to him there. The Basilian Fathers in charge of the College consider the attack made by the Ottawa paper as very ungenerous. The conditions of Affiliation are preferable to those indorsed by Rome for the affiliation of Stonyhurst in Eng(land), and for Carlton College of Ireland with London University.

J., who was gathering material for a biography. Dallas's daughters Marie and Elsie are going to spend the summer with him in Texas. He is considering sending them to St. Mary's to finish their education.

De Pauw, (Father) Edmund M.: Chateaugay, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

He thanks McMaster for his high opinion of him, remarking that it should, if possible, spur him on get more subscribers for the Freeman's Journal. He will celebrate a Mass for Saint Anthony of Padua on May 30, and thanks McMaster for the large honararium, but begs him, when sending intentions in the future, to give only the ordinary stipend. For his trouble in getting subscriptions he has been amply repaid on several occasions. When De Pauw gets to New York, where he has not been for four or five years, he will place himself into McMaster's care. He sends regards to McMaster's family. P.S. He encloses a note to McDewitt, the bookkeeper of McMaster, in which he lists the names of the subscribers.

Dodson, Jo(h)n: Fort Smith, Ark(ansas)
 to Ja(me)s A(lphonsus) McMaster: New York, (New York)

Dodson has received McMaster's receipt for the $15.50. He has read the statements of Miss O'Brien and the steamer officials in the Freeman's Journal. The Officers are not the ones who inspect at each end of the voyage but rather it is the passengers who find out what goes on in the steerages. Dodson sends two confindential statements, both made by people whom McMaster knows, and so McMaster can depend on their truth. The steerage of the "Germania" is nothing but a brothel where wholesale immorality is conducted. Dodson shall see that no friend of his shall travel on the White Star Line, since there is no discipline and protection. There is not much immorality on the "State of Georgia", but one drunken ruffian made two attempts on the same night to enter the berth of two women. The watchman, who heard the commotion and the outcry did not even make a complaint to the captain. Dodson has read other accusations against certain steamers in the "Boston Pilot", and hopes that this work of the devil may soon be stopped. He cannot mention the young ladies concerned in the incident above since they do not want their name in the newspapers.

Truchard, Father J(ohn) A(ugustine): Santa Fe, New Mexico
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Archbishop (John Baptist) Lamy has called Truchard's attention to an article by Eliot Ryder entitled "The Cathedral of San Francisco in Santa Fe, New Mexico." There are a number of false statements in it. It is a case of a person, who on his second day in a strange country knowing all the customs.
