He has heard that in Louisiana there is much good to be done. If (Perché) could use him, he is to write to the Archbishop of Reims. One difficulty would be the money to go to America. (P.S.) Since his father refuses to give him an allowance, Combaud would not have the money to make the trip.

Rouxel, Father G(ustave) A.: (New Orleans, Louisiana)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Mrs. Norton came to St. Michael to see (Perché) on behalf of Mother Theresa (of Jesus, O. Carm. D.) to have (Perché)'s imprimatur for the two editions, French and English, which are to go to press. Mr. Théard has done the English translation and Rouxel and another priest will see to the proof. Bishop Leray does not wish to be involved in it and the Sisters who did not doubt that they would have permission would be very much embarrassed if it was delayed longer. Rouxel sees no objection to an imprimatur. Father (Theobald W.) Butler, (S.J.) came yesterday to say that it was impossible for Father (James J. Duffo, S.J.) Duffau to remain longer at St. James. Rouxel told Butler that he would send Father (Jean Marie) Jeffroy. But yesterday Jeffroy was replacing Father (A.S.) Doutre who is on a trip at the moment. So Father Le Cozic did not want Jeffroy to go. Rouxel hopes that next week Jeffroy can go to St. James until Father (J.B.) Heran returns.

Venissat, Father C(yprien): (Labadie, Louisiana)
 to Archbishop J(oseph) N(apoleon) Perché: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Venissat was stunned by Father Rouxel's letter announcing that Venissat is to remain at Labadie only as the Superior of the Sisters and that Father (Marius Welté) Wolte would conduct the parish as pastor. It would be death to Venissat and to everything he has done. Perché seems to say that he believes all the calumnies of which justice has declared Venissat innocent. He wants to propose that Wolte come as assistant and Venissat little by little will cede authority to him. Venissat cannot believe that Perché would take away a church which Venissat built almost at his own expense. Venissat hopes that Perché will modify his decision and that Wolte will come as assistant. Venissat will build a chapel where he would consider it suitable.

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

Before leaving New York Father (Victor Francis John) Pellouin wrote saying that Father (N.J.) Roulleaux has all power over what belongs to Pellouin. A few days after, Enaut received a letter from Roulleaux saying that before leaving America Pellouin asked him to go to Monroe and bring to Shreveport what belonged to Pellouin, to save Roulleaux a trip. Enaut had all of Pellouin's things sent to Shreveport. Enaut infers that Pellouin either does not intend to come back to America or that he knows he will never come back to Monroe. This conclusion affords Enaut a great relief. If Leray has no other place for Pellouin, Enaut is bound to say to let him go. Enaut is getting along well, the people did not like (Pellouin).

(Gaux), Bishop (Pierre-Antoine)-Paul: Versailles, (France)

(Gaux) certifies that Marie Louis Delcros, son of Pierre Delcros and Anne Bruaire, born May 16, 1846 at Craponne entered the Versailles seminary on August 7, 1875, was tonsured on June 9, 1876, received the orders of porter and lector on December 18 of the same year. He left the seminary the following year. His perseverance in the desire to attain the priesthood makes (Gaux) believe that he could be useful and they learn with pleasure that he has been received into a diocese in America.

 Enclosure: 

(18)82 Sep. 5
Delcros, Father F.: Baignes Charente, (France)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Delcros adds to his brother's letter. They were both born in Velay and studies at seminaries far from there. Delcros is in parish work in the diocese of Angoulème. His brother has spent several years in teaching. They believe it is time for him to devote himself to the salvation of souls in a country where Delcros himself would like to work. His brother knows German and could easity learn English. Delcros' poverty and expenses of his mother's illness keep him from sacrificing money for his brother. His brother's testimonial proves his piety and pruity of conduct. Delcros asks (Perché) to grant this minor cleric all the faculties possible that he may become a priest.

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

Howe encloses a check for the New Orleans Carmelites. It is strange that the Sisters of St. Mary's of the Woods had trouble getting their copies of "Record of a Suffering Soul". Howe wrote to the Chicago people about it but got no reply. Howe intended to give them a chance to repair past injustice, but they did not take it. Father Burke has taken fifty copies, and Mother Catherine Feehan has also ordered fifty copies. General (Jonathan) Scammon visited Howe.

Gouley, O.S.B., Sister Cunégunda: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

If Pope Leo XIII has responded, to her plea, why does not Perché tell her. Perché told her verbally that he authorized Sister Radégondis (Gouley, O.S.B.) and Sister Bernard, (O.S.B.) to transfer their vows from Covington, K(entuck)y to New Orleans. Cunégunda is distressed by so great a change. Perché's enemies seem to give him sage advice while they make sport of him. What can she expect of men; they are weak and blind. She blesses the hand of God which strikes her, as the apostles rejoiced when talked about.

Mac Carthy, John: (New York, New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Frain, Father C(elestin) M.: (New Orleans, Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Frain is sorry to have given Leray the trouble of asking half the tax of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church for 1882. Frain understood the circular of June 1881 to say that he must pay $90 by July 1. But Frain believes that Leray's instruction left them the choice of paying their tax in a single payment at the end of the year or semi-annually. Frain will do his best to pay during next week. As for the balance of $45 fom last year, Leray is to remember that he told Frain in speaking of Frain's predecessor, Father A(nthony) Borias, that Borias paid one fourth of the 1881 tax since he had collected all the revenues of the parish from January up to April 10 when Frain took possession. Frain has only to send Leray's receipt for $135 paid by Frain on December 30, 1881 as proof that there is no balance to pay.

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

Lavaquery received Leray's letter of the 1st; Leray had authorized Lavaquery to give only ten piastres as he had been pastor only 3 months in 1882. Father (Olivier) Bré was pastor up to May 1, and during the vacancy Father (Pierre Marie F.) Letilly had charge of the parish. The taxes for 1882 are not payable until January, 1882. When Lavaquery has a reply to his letter of (August) 29 he thinks he will be obliged to go to Harvey's Canal and from there he could go to pay the 6 months of 1882 with the collections and dispensations.

Theresa of Jesus, (O.) C(arm.) D., Sister M(ary): New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Sister never thought that Leray would have the smallest objection to the permissions, which the Archbishop gave them in April to follow in America the example of Europe in celebrating the third centenary of Saint Teresa. They are conforming to the wish of Leo XIII. In May when the Archbishop was so ill, Leray came to the convent and Sister told him what they were doing. Leray made no objection. Sister mentioned the committees they intended to form and Leray agreed. They asked to put the Archbishop's and Leray's names at the head of the committee. When a friend called on Leray for permission he said that the time was not propitious and that he would come to give Sister the reasons. They believe they understand that because of the state of the diocese, Leray does not want to appear in another project. Sister asks Leray to permit them to continue and to enter into an arrangement with the committee. Sister asks Leray to visit them.

Branche, Father B(laise): Chataignier, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

Branche hopes that this letter will be more fortunate than the one of July 16. After enlarging his church and presbytery by 30 feet he felt the necessity of working on the building of a Sisters' school. But as the land belongs to the church, Branche asks what to do. He would propose to have all the materials sent gratis; the purchase of the lumber, etc. and the labor woul be in charge of the Sisters. His parish has not had Confirmation for 4 years; if Leray can come this year, he would ask for a month's notice.

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

Starr is glad that his letter pleased Father-General (Edward Sorin), Father (Alexis) Granger, Father (J.) Gleason and Hudson.

When Starr sees Shea he will give him Hudson's message. Colonel (Elmer) Otis is acquainted with Father Bronson the new priest. While Otis or General Sturgis is in command here, the priest will find a friend in the commanding officer.

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

Since Ledreux wrote he has realized that it is impossible to build his house this year; he will wait until the end of next year. He will have time to finish paying for the church. Their school house is almost finished and will be ready for pupils next month. Unfortunately he is told that new schools cannot receive public money until recognized by the legislature.

There are many sick calls. Ledreux asks (Leray) to help them with their school.

Rouxel, Father G(ustave) A.: (New Orleans, Louisiana)
 to Archbishop (Napoleon Joseph Perché): St. Michael, (Louisiana)

Rouxel has concerned himself with Sister (Cunegundes Gauley, O.S.B.) Cunégonde in order to know what is to be done. Rouxel believes that she has been on the wrong track for 12 years. She must have suffered much and if she entered another community it would be the same. Her character is not sufficiently pliant to live with others. According to her she ought to found a convent for herself. Rouxel advised her to live in the world and have a little school. The Benedictine Sisters of Trinity do not want any claim on her. Father LeCozic is of Rouxel's opinion. So if Sister writes to (Perché) for advice he will have a guide. Sister is a good and holy person but little called to community life and less to found a convent. The Sisters are alike and if the one still at Covington is the same, Rouxel pities her. Nothing new except the trouble caused Mother Thèrése by Bishop Leray because of the centenary.

Madas, M.A. Eulalie née Villain: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Archbishop N(apoleon) J(oseph) Perché: New Orleans, (Louisiana)

On Monday Father Lecozic gave Madas $4. She had no sewing; Constant (Madas) has nothing to do at the place where he had worked for 25 years. The month's rent of 6 piastres is due the 18th. Madas saw the builder of the boat; he would let Constant take the boat on condition that he pay on December 31 and give him $40 now. It would be a great act of charity if Perché could advance them a little. If Constant were at Biloxi, she would not lack for food. If Perché does not reply, they will leave for Mr. Duvoisin(?)'s, formerly Waggaman, where at least they will have provisions on credit and Madas will try to do some cooking for the workers. Charles (Madas?) has a felon and suffers a lot.

Bedél, Father P(eter) M.: Buras, (Louisiana)
 to Bishop (Francis Xavier Leray: New Orleans, Louisiana)

Bedél thought that, according to (Leray)'s letter of June 14, 1881, it was allowable to pay their tax in one payment or 2 semi-annual payments. Bedél paid last year's in January of this year. If there are new instructions, he does not know them. He cannot pay now. Receipts for the last 3 months do not amount to $18 a month. The storm on the 9th has ruined his parish; all the levees are down. He will not have his revenue of $350 a year; the priests of the city perform all his marriages and most of his funerals and keep the money. Father Langlois could give the details of Bedél's position.

Will Leray send one; Sister Assistant hopes to leave the last of this month. Leray is to tell St. Bernard if they may make such arrangements with Father (Ludovic) Enaut about the exchange of land and houses as will best further their interests in Monroe.

In magnificence of intellect (Brownson) stands with the great genuines of Christian times—St. Augustine, St. Thomas and the First Napoleon.

Ebner, O.S.B., Father Claude Maria: Fort Yates, Dakota (Territory)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ebner thanks Hudson for sending $5 for the Indian missions. The "Catholic Note", Hudson made in the Ave Maria concerning Ebner's missions had no effect. He sends a statement of his mission's financial affairs. The government builds the schools for the Indians and pays for the teachers, but Ebner has nothing for churches and for priests. Ten persons, priests, brothers and sisters are employed as teachers. For this the government pays $375 every quarter, out of which they must board themselves and provide alms for the Indians. Ebner hopes Hudson will make an appeal through the Ave Maria in behalf of the Indian missions. Bishop Martin Marty, O.S.B., will pass the winter at Fort Yates. It is hoped that he will make his headquarters at St. Benedict's Mission on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

This lack of money is caused by the repairs Chabrier has just finished and which amount to $1100.

Having written to Leray to obtain authorization to buy 11 arpènts of land with buildings suitable for a chapel at Chesnière Caminada, Lavaquery has received no answer. As he must leave for the islands in a few days where he wants to settle this at Harvey's Canal, he asks if Leray gives the authorization. Chesnière had 2 feet of water in the last storm but there was no damage. Grand 'Isle is soon to have a railroad. The Morgan Company plans to go by way of Barataria Bay. This would place Lavaquery 30 miles from these islands. He fears that if Father (Hyacinthe) Mignot's dealings with the owner of the land adjoining the Villoz hotel are not prompt, the company will buy it for a station. Ten property owners of the bayou are trying to buy as a group, to build bath houses there.

Sister Louise, (prioress) of the Convent of Mount Carmel, acknowledges McMaster's letter and the clippings from the paper. She is sorry to have bothered him but she thought it would be well to see some of the articles which His Grace has mentioned to them. She thinks it would be best if McMaster were to send the $100. to Father (George W.) Devine since they do not wish to use it for expenses unless they are forced to. She thanks those who generously responded to his appeal. On the day of the clothing (of Helen McMaster) the Order will be fasting but it will not be a black fast, hence McMaster may treat the Sisters if he cares to. The family of the postulant does not usually provide a breakfast for the guests since the Sisters give a small repast for the priests in the ceremony. She appreciates McMaster's kind offer but declines it. She expects McMaster on the day of the clothing and thanks him for his favors to the community.

DelaCroix regrets that he could not be at St. Michael for the 53rd anniversary of Perché's ordination. He said Mass for Perché.
