1882 (Aug.)
(White), O.S.B., Father Xavier: (Collegeville), (Minnesota)
 to J(ames) (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

In the Freeman's Journal of July 30, (1882), appeared an article on White Earth (Indian) Reservation, Minn(esota). The article invited Catholics to contribute to the support of a priest of that reservation. St. John's Monastery in Collegeville, Minn(esota) attends this reservation but there is much more work that the two priests stationed there can handle. If there were some means of supporting extra priests, there would be a great deal of work for them to do. One of the good men who reads the Journal wrote to the Abbot of St. John's on July 31 and although he has given permission to publish extracts of his letters he does not want his name disclosed. White gives extracts quoted directly from the letter to the Abbot. When this man read an article in the Journal about the laying of the cornerstone of a new church in an Indian Mission, he also noticed the article mentioning the scarcity of priests and the fact that additional priests could work if there were some means of supporting them. Wishing to do some good work to advance the church this man promised $50. towards the maintainance of another priest for the Indians, and hoped that others would send similar contributions. The Abbot answered the man telling him more about conditions in the Mission and the difficulties attached to it. The abbot received another letter on (Aug.) 11 from the same man thanking him for the information on the mission and sending a draft on New York for $100. The donor wished this amount could be larger but thought that others might join in the good work. In his own city the donor knows of several men whose business incomes would allow them to band together to raise $500. and to support a priest among the Indians. If these Indians enjoyed the advantages of having churches and priests as Catholics do, they would soon shame the whites in religion. This donor is only slightly acquainted with these gentlemen who could afford to donate money and cannot presume to take the lead in securing contributions but he knows of some men in his home city whom he will approach on the subject when he returns to that city in a few days. The men have generously contributed to home wants and may willingly do so for the Indians. He is personally acquainted with over 20 Catholics who could each give $50. to support a priest and not miss it but, fears he will not be too successful in appreaching them. He feels a strong impulse to bind himself for the entire $500. and wishes a priest sent to the Indians immediately in any case. The means will surely be provided by the coming Christmas, and if they are not he will send another $100. at that time. This man notifies white that his name is not to be published among his neighbors but that McMaster is entitled to know it is confidence. White will send McMaster the man's name in the same mail by which this present letter arrives so that the genuineness of this act of charity may be guaranteed. There should be other Catholics who will unite their efforts to answer the Indians' call for a priest, and if any desire to join in this good work they may do so by notifying the Abbot of St. John's Monastery, (Father Alexius Edelbrock, O.S.B.), of their intentions.

I(nfant) J(esus), Sister Mary of: New Orleans, L(ouisiana)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The community has received letters of encouragement from subscribers of the Ave Maria. Sister encloses a poem on St. Teresa for publication in the Ave Maria. Hudson, if he wishes, may publish the list of offerings sent to Sister's convent. The Prioress, Mother Teresa de Jesus, sent Hudson two copies of last month's Annals du Carmel. The community is indebted to such Catholic papers as the Watchman, Tablet, Catholic Mirror, Review Star and the La Propagation as well as the Ave Maria for their efforts to spread the devotion to St. Teresa and publicize the Carmelite's need for funds.

(McMaster) Helen,: Baltimore, (Maryland)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Helen (McMaster) writes her father from the Convent of Mount Carmel. She received his letter on Wednesday and is answering him in time for his feast day (on Aug. 2). She gives her regards to (Alphonsus McMaster) and promises to pray for him. The indulgence of the Portiuncula has been granted to the Carmelites and after first vespers the nuns will make several visits to the choir and the oratory because each visit enables you to gain a plenary indulgence. Father (Augustine) Langcake gave the nuns a good conferance last Wednesday. Even though it was very warm, the nuns attended with their mantles on and their veils over their faces. The clipping McMaster sent to the Reverend Mother (Sr. Louise of St. John the Evangleist) were read during the recreation period and were greatly enjoyed. Since McMaster is the only living father of all those in the community, the nuns all look on him as their father and speak highly of him. Mother Beatrix, the novice-mistress has taught her to press the flowers which she encloses, and the wood around the picture of Saint Teresa is off the convent itself. The Sisters know Father (Michael) Muller and also Father (Augustine) Frietag. She has remembered her father's special intention in her prayers.

He also would like Leray to obtain free passage for him as he had before.

Enaut, Father L(udovic): Monroe, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

About 12 days ago, Enaut sent Leray two letters about his assistant Father (Victor Francis John) Pellouin, one from Doctor C.C. Caze, the other from Enaut. Today he sends a duplicate of these two letters.

 On the same papers: 

1882 Jul. 21
Caze, Dr. C.C.: Monroe, L(ouisian)a
 to Bishop Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Pellouin has been under Caze's treatment for 2 weeks. Caze pronounces his nervous system so shattered as to unfit him for his mission here. Pellouin is now a hypochondriac and at times not a responsible being. His recovery in Monroe is impossible.

- Copy -


 On the same paper: 

1882 Jul. 23
Enaut, L.: Monroe, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Circumstances force Enaut to ask the removal of Pellouin. Pellouin's health is getting worse, his ways more strange. His fits have convinced Enaut and the doctor that Pellouin is seriously attacked. The people wonder what can be the matter with that maniac priest. Enaut must try to get Pellouin away from Monroe as soon as possible. Pellouin would be glad to go to France. He might be cured but the Ouachita Valley will not prove a healthy climate for him.

- Copy -



(Enaut's letter continues): Enaut believes that delays would be dangerous. Pellouin is sick, call it St. Vitus dance, hysteria, it makes no difference. When Enaut was in New Orleans, he declined to accept Pellouin; Leray sent him anyhow. A month ago Enaut sent Pellouin down the Ouachita River; the next morning he came back having gone no further than Logtown. Enaut would go to those missions but to leave Pellouin alone at Monroe would be unsafe. It is sad to see a young priest so terribly afflicted. In Pellouin's lucid moments he seems to have good intentions; he is not bad but he is a lazy, crazy hypochondriac. Leray is too wise and charitable not to relieve Enaut from further troubles and not to give Pellouin a chance to recuperate.

Dicharry, Father (Pierre) Felix: Natchitoches, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

(Leray) is to send his orders or do everything himself. Dicharry would do better, If he could, but he is ill, more ill than Father (Victor Francis John) Pellouin. Dicharry has no money for trips. He has 80 piastres and 65 cents, not counting what he owes to Aunt Marie. If he had the power of giving permissions to be absent for a year, he would not use it. (Leray), better than Dicharry can better resolve such problems. He asks what to do.

Ledreux, Father J.M.: Bayou Cie, L(ouisian)a
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Ledreux came here a year ago. He has had no occasion to write since Leray's visit. They have made little progress in their back woods since Leray's visit. They had their church ceiled last fall; it wants painting to be completed. There is a debt of $125, an increase of $45 over last year's debt. Ledreux pays $10 a month for his board and gets other necessaries with the hope of making ends meet. He has now been sick for a month with malarial fever. Father Aubrée spent a week with Ledreux while he was most sick, then they took him to Many where he was slowly recovering for 2 weeks until he came back here. He wishes he had a house and a servant. The only way to build a house would be to borrow money, $200 or $250. The best way would be for the Catholic farmers to unite and plant a field of cotton which might make 6 or 8 bales. This year they planted about 4 acres which will yield 80 or 90 barrels of corn. Ledreux has proposed to an Indian to pay all expenses for entering U.S. land adjoining the church lot on condition that after getting a lawful title he would donate to the church the 30 acres next the church land. He has agreed to enter the land next fall. Ledreux asks whether (Leray) approves. They have a public school composed of Catholic children. One is going on now on the other side of San Miguel; the other at the church which the school board has just granted them, will be started in 2 months by the same teacher, Mr. Lynch. They are making arrangements to build the house.

Margaret Mary, (R.U.), Sister: Rennes, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché?: New Orleans, Louisiana)

They have learned from Father Lorinne, a Jesuit who has just given their retreat, that (Perché) has a remedy for cancer. One of their Sisters has this malady. Her devotion to her duty as head mistress seems to grow with the progress of the disease. They would like to keep her longer among them. They ask (Perché) to send them this remedy. All the members of the Community of the Visitation of St. Mary of Rennes will be grateful.

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

Howe forwards Father (Augustus) Bessonies' $2 together with $3 for the Pio Nono monument. The Sisters of St. Mary's Institute ordered three dozen copies of the book "Record of a Suffering Soul", but have not received them yet. She inquires if Brother Francis (Andrew Sweeney) is ill. Howe believes Bishop (John) McMullen ordered Bishop (Thomas) Foley's monument. Archbishop (Patrick) Feehan is kind to (Eliza Allen) Starr, but she is not the woman who influences him. Had Rome accepted the vote of the clergy she would have practically been Bishop of Chicago, so much did McMullen admire her. Feehan's sister is Mother Catherine, stationed at St. Bernard's, the Sister of Mercy Convent in Nashville. Mother Catherine is most critical of Starr's writings, which do not suit her ascetic tastes. Howe sent Catherine a copy of "Record of a Suffering Soul" and as a result Feehan ordered 100 copies. When Howe presented Father (J.) Benoit's letter of introduction Feehan remarked that in questions of spirituality, secular priests must yield to religious clergy. Chesterton includes many localities each with its own post office and distinct name. The people of the town of Chesterton hate this corner of the township and will not vote for any farmer running for a township office.

 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

The greatest consolation for the poor disabled one at Chesnière Caminada and Grand Isle is to see his eleventh trip crowned by Leray's pastoral visit.

He has undertaken the enlargement of his church and the building of a chapel at the bayou and one in each of the two islands. (Lavaquery) had the consolation of presenting 96 confirmands.

Muir, Marion: Morrison, (Colorado)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Muir thanks Hudson for sending the Scholastic. Notre Dame graduates are spoken of highly in Denver. There is much adventure and romance about Colorado that is missed by correspondents due in part to the way Coloradans tax an Easterner's credulity. Muir does not see the same conscientiousness among Americans in literature as they show in art. She sends an article for the Scholastic. Northern Colorado is full of Ex-Union men but west of the divide the other side has its representatives.

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

Edes was not affronted that Hudson cut down her paper on the Visitation. Edes calls Hudson's attention to the "Roman Letter" of the London Tablet. She was disappointed at not seeing Father General Edward F. Sorin, C.S.C. Padre Ferdinando said Sorin and he called and that Edes was not to be found. The enclosed tirade against Lady Herbert and Edes appeared in the liberal Gazzettad' Italie. Edes understands it was written by Ulysses Mari who is down upon the Freeman. In the seventeen years she has been at Rome Edes has never been asked by an official of rank to translate any document sent from America. Bishop (Herbert Vaughan) of Salford addressed a letter to Edes to Propaganda, and she received it. Mori has given out that he goes soon to America in secret service for the Holy See. He is the Roman correspondent of the Sun, not J(ohn) B(oyle) O'Reilly. Edes does not pity Helen Cowles for marrying that horrible Pomeroy. Edes writes very little for the Freeman. The Alte(?) declares that nobody cares now for Roman news. The truth is he grudges Edes the $500 yearly he offered her.

Lawrence Kehoe told Galwey that Hudson is the editor of the Scholastic. Galwey noted that the Scholastic failed, in its notice of Aubrey de Vere's new volume, to mention that these poems first appeared in the Catholic World. He supposes the failure of the Scholastic to notice this point is an oversight.

(McMaster), Helen: Baltimore, (Maryland)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Helen (McMaster), writing from the Convent of Mount Carmel, blames her delay in answering her father's letter to the fact that Mother Beatrix forgot to tell her to write. She thanks Jen for her long letter. The Assumption is a beautiful feast when one contemplates its real meaning. The Sisters chanted the whole office and Matins so that the service lasted more than 2 hours. At High Mass that morning a group of ladies and gentlemen sang with the small melodien in the church and made the entire service very devotional. The nuns enjoy the music greatly in their child-like simplicity even those who have been in religion for many years. The community made a triduum to St. Teresa during the last three days. Jen wrote that McMaster was enjoying good health. Helen considers herself the strongest in health in the community. She encloses a photo of Sister St. John (McMaster) and would have sent her own photo but had no suitable envelope. She received her father's photo and has obtained permission to keep it.

Cajone, Father H(orace): Belle Vale, L(ouisian)a
 to Archbishop Napoleon Joseph Perché: N(ew) O(rleans), L(ouisian)a

Cajone hopes that when Perché is altogether recovered he will not forget him. Cajone is sick and destitute since the monthly income scarcely amounts to $6. Cajone gave in his dimission as pastor of Jackson and dependencies because he thought that a creole priest could do much better there. He was quite broken down from continuous riding. It is much better to leave Bayou Grosse Tete to the present incumbents. Father Gutton told, in the presence of Father Delacroix, that nobody can live there unless he receives extra help. It has 70 miles of difficult access; Cajone cannot ride 10 miles. Delacroix proposed Grosse Tete in good faith and Cajone accepted but unseen circumstances prevented Cajone from going there.

Manoritta, Father J(oachim) A.: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Having begun the solemn novena to St. Barthelemy, Manoritta could not come to talk about the charges of the Freemasons, so-called members of St. Barthelemy Society. They are against Manoritta because he talked strongly against a demonstration in favor of Garibaldi and because he wrote them that this Society today is to be considered religious. This is the second time they have tried to take away the statue of St. Barthelemy. They will never succeed because it was accepted on condition that it could never be touched at least while this was the Italian parish. Manoritta would be obliged if Leray would tell him the charges against him so that he could reply.

Onahan believes the publication of a new edition of the works of (Orestes A. Brownson) deserves prompt and generous encouragement from the Catholic publics, although the number of volumes and the cost of the series will limit the number of subscriptions. In Onahan's opinion a collection of the more permanent of his writings in 5 to 10 volumes would bring Henry a greater and more satisfactory return. However Onahan enters his subscription for the entire work and wants to know at what reduced price he can obtain ten sets. He will try to get that number of suscribers.

In the name of all the Brownsons Orestes thanks and congratulates Henry upon the great and noble work of republishing the works of the great Orestes A. Brownson. May Heaven grant Henry health and Strenght to continue and conclude the noble undertaking. Henry is to save a copy for Orestes as he shall have the money in time on Nov. 1 and every 3 months thereafter. If Orestes can be of any assistance, Henry should let him know. Orestes hopes Henry makes the edition as large as he can, for there are many persons who can not make up their minds to take a book until they see it. P. S. Henry is to send a few circulars for use here. All are well here, except Edward (Brownson's) wife, who is expected to die, and her baby. This is the second day of her labor and the doctor nearly gives them up.

She read in the Morning Star that Perché was better. Constant sends his compliments and ask Perché to pray for Charles. Charles is up and Madas does not have the money to buy him a pair of shoes. Constant will go to work on Tuesday and perhaps in two weeks they will pay him when he finishes his job. In the house where she is, she has to drink river water and this makes her ill.

Raymond, Father G(ilbert): Opelousas, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Raymond writes in favor of the school for the colored. Father (Hyacinthe M.) Lecozic has always acted harshly toward this house. He is scheming(?) to keep the house with 3 Sisters of (the Holy Family). The Superior and her council promised Raymond to keep the house and send three Sisters. Last November Lecozic ordered the house closed; they left one sick Sister to teach and one other for the housework. It was insufficient. They needed at least one other teacher and the Superior had promised Sister Ignatius, (S.H.F.). Raymond received a letter from the Superior who said the house was suspended; minutes later he received a telegram saying that the Sisters would arrive on Monday. Today he learned that the two who had been left were the ones that they were sending. Father (Cyril De) Lacroix has promised everything for Baton Rouge and has done nothing. If they wish to send Lacroix Sister Mary Ann, (S.H.F.), she is good. A second teacher would be sufficient. Instead they are giving Sister Ignatius. This is not fair. The convent here belongs to the diocese and since Archbishop Perché is ill Leray has a double right to demand that it have the necessary personnel and that it be given Sister Marie, (S.H.F.), Sister Claire, (S.H.F.) and Ignatius, suspending Baton Rouge if necessary. These Sisters are badly governed; two have good sense - Sister Cecile, (S.H.F.) and Sister Therese, (S.H.F.). Sister Madeleine, (S.H.F.) is full of pride. Lecozic does not like Raymond but Leray has the power in this case; he is to act for their immense colored population.

He is on his way to Washington and plans to leave his girls with Sister Perpetua. Dallas would like to send his daughter Marie to Austin, Texas to have the benefit of Sister Florentine's instruction, but Sister Mildred sent word that they could not take them. He wishes Sister Florentine could be transferred to Holy Cross Academy in Washington, and thinks that she should be for her artistic talents are being wasted in Austin.

Henry's circular is what Hudson was thinking of when he wrote to Henry, but Hudson regrets that Henry did not announce the portrait for the first volume. The circular ought to be sent to priest and the heads of libraries everywhere in this country and to every Catholic publication, also to such periodicals as the Atheneum, Critic, Dial etc. Hudson wants two sets of the work which should be sent to the Lemonnier Library here. Hudson hopes to see as full and prominent a notice of the project in all the Catholic papers as he gave in the "Ave Maria". The Scholastic, the little college paper published here will also contain an announcement. This, with the circular is the best sort of advertising.

Renaudier, (S.M.), Father O(nezime): (Convent, Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Some time ago, Renaudier received the copy of the letter from the S(acred) Congregation on the subject of (Aldric Lottin) de la Peychardière. Renaudier is not the owner of the Foyer Créole; he cooperated in its founding with several of his parishioners, putting in his money as they did. Peychardière does not seem in the right when he claims that he not only founded the paper but supported it with his own money. Not only was the press and all the materials furnished to Peychardière but also furniture for one person. He alone received the revenue of the paper during his stay, up to October 1881 when he left for Colorado and New Mexico to seek for gold. Peychardière also sought to deceive(?) when he presented himself as a Catholic who claimed the jurisdiction of the church tribunals. Before writing to the S(acred) Congregation he made some proposals to different lawyers but these proposals were rejected as being without basis. Even before the letter of the S(acred) Congregation arrived at New Orleans, Peychardière wrote an accusing letter against the Foyer Creole, a letter void of common sense, since, absent for 10 months without any cooperation with the paper, he signed as sole editor of the Foyer Creole. In order that Leray may make a judgment Renaudier encloses: 1. The exposé of the whole affair given in the Foyer Créole in its issue of August 2, 1882; 2. Peychardière's reply to Renaudier's letter of August 1880; 3. The letter Peychardière had published in the Louisianais under the date of July 7, 1882 which appeared here July 29, 1882.

 Enclosure: 

1882 Aug. 2
Foyer Creole: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Readers of the Louisianais must have been surprised Saturday to see a letter bearing Peychardière's signature in which he calls himself the sole editor-owner of the Foyer Créole. This letter is dated from Oran, Franch Algeria. Does he imagine that he has the gift of bi-location and that each week while breathing the air of the banks of the Chéliff, he is here working on the editing of the Foyer Creole? Several honorable persons of the area in the summer of 1880 decided to found a paper in the parish and subscriptions were signed by J.E. Poché, Amand Bourgeois and brothers, Renaudier, Dr. De Poorter, J.P. Bourgeois, L. Thibodeaux, A. Livian Bourgeois, Emile J. Laiche and Alfred Plaisance. Renaudier wrote to Peichardière, then as now, in Oran proposing to him the editorship of the French part of the new paper. Peichardière came and the paper began on December 15, 1880 with the press and materials furnished by the underwriters. The press and materials had been bought from Geo(rge) E. Bovee. Having ceased to cooperate in the publishing of the paper, Peichardière voluntarily broke his contract with the enterprise; his name was struck from the masthead.

Sennegy, René de: Chéliff, (Oran, Algeria)
 to F. Bourgeois, E. Poché, T. Bourgeois and others: St. Michael, Louisiana

Their proposal came as a pleasant surprise. Reading Renaudier's letter he seemed to experience a breeze like that which in the months of November and December blows across the plantations filled with emanations from the sugar mills. He did not hesitate a moment; Renaudier's wish is the wish of the signer of the Sennéglade of 1877; he accepts. (In Renaudier's hand) Sennegy, Peychardière's pen name.

Peichardière, Aldric Lottin de: Oran, (Algeria)
 to 
the Editor of the Louisianais(New Orleans, Louisiana)

Remembering that Mr. Gentil once said Peichardière would find the Louisianais ready to accept his writings, and finding himself underhandedly put out of his own property, Peichardière wants to bring before the parish of St. James the cause of unrecognized rights of the sole and true owner of the Foyer Créole. He will institute a process against his adversaries by giving the readers of against his adversaries by giving the readers of the Louisianais the letters exchanged from the founding of the Foyer Créle to his shameless robbery. As soon as he has the editor's reply he will send the account of his defense. (The editor adds that) the columns of the Louisianais are open to Peichardière.

Laporte, Father J(ea)n P(ierr)e: Maisons Alfort, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph) Perché: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Count (Jules de Boursetty) vigorously denies that Kerr (Bishop Francis Xavier Leray?) ever received from Rome the letter which came short of putting Perché in his grave. Laporte feels it his duty to let Perché know about a letter which he wrote in April but which was returned because of Perché's illness which Father Rouxel and Lerr considered as mortal. (The letter): Laporte is anxiously following the struggle which the Coadjutor is waging against (Peché). Laporte prays for (Peché)'s triumph. He lets the Count himself speak as he wrote from Rome on April 9: "(Boursetty) replied to Laporte's friend at Ste. Eulalie but since then he has had the visit of the two special envoys. He has been able to establish the firm wish of the Corporation to pay the debt. They claim it will be easy if the administration is left to the Corporation and not to the Coadjutor. The Coadjutor demands of Rome that the Corporation be forced to recognize him as Vice-President. That is the whole question. It is Perché who is the absolute master; he should write to the Pope and demand the man of his choice." (Laporte continues): Since Father Leneuf affirmed that the letter is an imposture and that hereafter the Coadjutor will no longer pay the debts, Perché is to defend his honor and that of the Church. (Boursetty) learned through the Secretary of Propaganda that the alleged letter was never written. Suspended and excommunicated, Rome will be obliged to give Perché another coadjutor who probably will be the one Perché asks for.

Avenard, Father J(ohn) B(aptist): Wytheville, Virginia
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Avenard left Alexandria on the 16th and reached here on the 19th. Since his visit last year to New Orleans and Chatowa Avenard's health has been much better. Father Menard, owing to a telegram sent Avenard by Father (Jean Baptiste) Bres, thought it certain that Brés reached Alexandria during Passion week, and he had already moved to Pineville. Bres arrived only on Saturday to relieve Avenard a little. The next morning Avenard relapsed into a severe attack of asthma; there was no improvement. On his doctor's advice, Avenard left to go Western Virginia. He called on Father dicharry for his testimonial letter. He stopped at Vermillionville and spent 4 hours with Father Forge. The next day he landed at N(ew) Orleans. Avenard had heard of Leray's probable absence for Grande Isle and of cases of yellow fever so he put off his visit to Leray until he returned. He checked his trunk to Wytheville; at the depot he met Father Pellouin with whom he traveled. His asthma has virtually disappeared. Father J. Mullin is rector of St. Mary's Church; he will be absent until September 1.

Regarding the World History Mac Carthy wrote, he does not know where Hudson got his information as to its composition, since (Lawrence) Kehoe was the only one who knew anything about it. Mac Carthy claims that the work is an original composition and he did not copy the material of other writers. He did rely upon the work of Gazeau written in French, as an authority, but after translating his work, Mac Carthy used his own interpretation of the facts, but did not invent a history of the world out of his head.

Mannix, Mary E.: Cin(cinnati), O(hio)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Since Mannix has not felt well this summer, she thought of returning Mrs. Blake's volume of poems, due to her inability to write a review of it. Now she submits a short review. She can not agree with the praise of the work by the Boston Pilot, for Mannix does not consider Blake's work equal to that of Adelide Procter. The name of Father Thomas E. Walsh, C.S.C., reminds her of her brother, who had the same name and died about eighteen months ago.

Lavaquery, Father E.J.: Our Lady of the Rosary, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

Lavaquery thanks Leray for his visit to the islands. He could have a house 42 by 26 at Chesnière Caminada, a large kitchen is attached and also a large boat shed(?). He has to sign a contract at once; for the cash, he believes that the diocese would recognize the debt. It is difficult to have the money with these poor fishermen.

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

Dallas received a letter from Sister Sienna at Austin dated the 27th stating that his daughter Marie could not be accommodated. This was after receiving a telegram from Sister Mildred, now visiting Notre Dame, telling Dallas that his daughter was accepted at the academy in Austin. He would like clarification of this confusing situation. If his daughter must be taken to Washington he wishes Sister Florentine would be transferred there.

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

Dorsey is happy to have completed his story "Ada's Trust" and hopes Hudson will accept the results of her unsuccessful efforts to condense it. She sends a statement of accounts concerning articles she has written for the Ave Maria, which show a balance of $64 in her favor.

Frain, Father C(elestin) M.: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: N(ew) Orleans, (Louisiana)

Frain understands through Father Healy that Perché was surprised not to receive a letter from Frain. He would have written if he had thought Perché would attribute his silence to a lack of attachment. Frain received only two letters he would have communicated had Perché's health permitted. One letter was from Father J. Hilliard; Perché knows the motive. The other was from the vicar general of Grenoble in behalf of a family of Lyons who had loaned a considerable sum to the diocese and who were worried about it. Frain replied that a change in the temporal administration of New Orleans could cause a delay in payment but that he believed there would be no difficulty in honoring its obligations. Frain is a little worn out by his first summer in New Orleans.

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

Schlichter expects to complete his second year of theology in his studies for the priesthood at St. Vincent's Seminary, Beatty, Pennsylvania. Remembering Father-General (Edward Sorin's, C.S.C.) search for an editor of a German edition of the Ave Maria, Schlichter recommends Father Thomas Bruhin, now residing in Columbus, Ohio with Father Joseph Jessing. Bruhin is a former member of the Benedictine monastery at Einsiedeln, Switzerland, a learned man and an able writer.

Angela, (S.M.), Sister M(ary): Vicksburg, (Mississippi)
 to Bishop F(rancis) X(avier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

This summer, Leray told Sister M. Catherine that if he knew when Rev(erend) Mother was at Pass (Chrstian) he would go to see her. Mother is there now; she has been in very poor health and Dr. Mitchell finally ordered her to go down to the coast. Mother Benedict went with her. Leray's old children cannot convince themselves that Leray is indifferent to them.

Egan tried to get Edwards to call on Johnson.

Maes sends Hudson a translation. With it he found a sketch written in the same hand. Before attempting to translate it Maes wishes to know if it has been published. If not, and it is acceptable to the Ave Maria, Maes will translate it. Maes intends to follow up the article on Bishop (Frederick) Rose with a sketch of his life.

Shea, John Gilmary: Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Father Felix Martin and H. W. Tache explored the Huron country and with the aid of the Jesuit Relations have been able to locate the site of most of the missions. Father (Jean de) Bredeuf and Gabriel Lalemant were taken in the town called St. Louis and taken to St. Igantius where the Iroquois burned them alive. The missionaries' bodies were later found and interred at St. Mary's. It is folly to conclude that the discovery of a rosary meant that it belonged to Brebeuf since so many Catholics have resided in the area. The writer did not realize that Brebeuf was only one of thirty missionaries among the Hurons.
