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

Edes thinks she has already written that the Patriot's circular was alright and she will see that the money sent reaches the right sources. She asked Marquis Sariera, editor of the Osservatore Romano who said the monument was to be at Bologna. At the request of the Bishop of Salford, (Herbert Vaughan) and the editor, Edes has accepted the Roman correspondence of the London Tablet, Dr. Brady having resigned. His letters are severely criticized. She does not know if she can succeed because the winter is different and she knows so little about the English and their movements. But the editor and Vaughan approve her three letters to date, in contract with the Abbe who assures her that no one reads her letters. Cardinal (Wladimir) Czacki does not improve, he has a disease of the spinal marrow and may not be able to receive the hat in the next Consistory. Edes would like the manuscript of the Presentation returned.

 to F(athe)r D(aniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks that the Ave Maria sent to his mother at his address in Hardinsburg be transferred to the name and address he lives. The Schmid story reads pretty well, but he was disappointed in the compiled article from the posts destined for Xmastide. He found the enclosed, culled by a friend, in his notebook. If it is proper Hudson should put it in the Ave.

Janssens, F(rancis), Bishop of: Natchez, Miss(issippi)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

The first use he makes of Seton's kind present is to write the donor. The motto may be a little too expressive; since Janssens' return he was obliged to send away three priests and he fears some will look upon those three sagittae, not as an emblem of three martyrs, but as three shot down by their bishop instead of by the Natchez. He hopes he may have the pleasure of entertaining Seton in Natchez. P.S. Janssens sent the card with the beautiful border to his mother.

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

He is sorry he caused Hudson trouble but in the confusion of closing the accounts for the year and training a helper the lost pages were mislaid. His "Mary's Shrine" is doing well and he is now having it translated into German. The advertisement regarding his pamphlet might be put into a corner of the Ave cover occasionally. The Bishop (John Tuigg) had a slight relapse, but not serious.

Wanda wrote her on his compliment.

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

She sends Hudson the review of a book that she wishes to see spread in all English speaking countries and begs him to insert it in the Ave Maria. She relies on Hudson's goodness and the fact that she is an aged member of the staff of the Ave that he will not refuse her. She hopes soon to send him some French topics and stories. Is it convenient for him to send her the sum she may have earned? She hopes everyone loves the Ave as she does. Hudson will have a great reward for editing it for it does much good.

He asks for a reply and to know the price and postage. He would purchase the entire set, but he is forced to be economical. P. S. Brownson will remember Severance's having addressed him once before.

She encloses 25 for Father Lambing's "Masses for the Dead", which she will pass on to a friend who does not believe it right to accept a fee for Masses for the dead. She prays daily to St. Joseph to send her a hundred dollars for Hudson next spring. She closes with thanks to Hudson for his kindness in continuing the Ave.

Toner, (Father) Patrick: Rome, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is sorry he neglected to thank Hudson for his excellent work and kind letter of last summer. He encloses a bill of exchange for 100 francs to be recorded to his credit and asks that two copies of the Ave Maria be sent to him weekly and one copy to Miss Angela Mesia O'Stuart, whose address he gives. She is a daughter of the Duke de Tamamis and will, he hopes, be a generous friend to the Ave. Enclosed is a small piece taken from the Pope's official Journal, "L'Osservatore Romano," containing an account of his missionary efforts in behalf of Central Africa. He has been able to collect funds for the Apostolic Missionary as he travels from place to place for his health. Recently at a Pontifical Mass held at Naples the collection taken up by the Apostolic Missionary himself was grand because the American Consul and all leading English and Americans were invited. It consoles him to do what he can for Catholicity because his health will not permit him to return to his own parish in Pennsylvania. If Bishop (William) O'Hara and Archbishop (James F.) Wood has helped him he could have changed the state of the infidel schools in Pennsylvania. Bishop O'Hara probably would not have sent the Sisters of the immaculate Heart of Mary to open a convent there if the Card. Prefect had not written him. Perhaps it is God's will that he is afflicted with poor health because he has opened the eyes of Rome to the state of the American Church. It must pain Hudson to learn that Bishops of the American Church are more anxious about their banking affairs than about the welfare of little ones. He is going to Naples to attend the English speaking Catholics during Lent. He has been preaching at Biarritz and only came to Rome to give the money he had collected to Card(inal) (John) Simeoni. Simeoni was so pleased that he wrote the enclosed acknowledgement. He would like fifty copies of the Ave Maria in which this notice will be published. Much of this money came from the Americans and the Irish and he wishes them to see that he gave it to the Cardinal. He is very interested in the Ave and grateful for the notices that have appeared in it in his favor. He gives a description of himself and his work which Hudson may use with the article from "Osservatore Romano" and then gives a translation of the article. P.S. He does not wish it known that he did not agree with his bishop. Hudson can say he has the consent of the Bishop to remain in Europe until he is well enough to return. He has many enemies who would be glad to throw aspersions on his character because of his condemnation of public schools, secret societies and the whiskey men. He expects to spend some time next summer in England and Ireland and will put in a good word for the Ave.

He takes the liberty of giving Hudson some information on Rt. Rev. Henry Joseph Richter, D.D., the newly appointed Bishop of Grand Rapids, with whom he is acquainted. He tells of the Bishop's birth in 1838 in Munster and his coming to America in 1854, where he attended St. Mary's Seminary of the West near Cincinnati. After his return from Rome as a Doctor of Theology in 1865 he taught at the Seminary with the celebrated Dr. ( ) Tobish. Then he was made Rector of a new Congregation at Warsaw and also attended the Sisters of Cedar Grove Academy. Richter is ascetic in nature, gentle and kind, a learned man but humble. He is a Bishop such as the Church will want nowadays. He studied and became intimate friends with him at the seminary from 1858 to 1860. Richter was beloved by all students, unassuming in his manner and small in size, and was a good singer in his younger days. As a preacher he was cool, clear and earnest.

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

She forwards a translation of the notice of a miraculous picture, Notre Dame D'Absam. The copy should be returned when convenient. It belongs to their Rev. Father who made a pilgrimage to the shrine. May the Blessed Virgin accept the present account as a tribute of love and in return grant her the grace she solicits, that Hudson will mail them a list of the names and addresses of the private parties to whom the Ave is sent weekly. She sends an offering of $3.00. P.S. The Community begs for a memento in Hudson's Mass for their Rev. Father who is in failing health in Rome.

French, Father S( ) J.: Kenosha, Wis(consin)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is a long time since any letters have passed between the, but he is now in a region where he hopes they may meet next spring or summer. He writes, trusting that Hudson is still at Notre Dame. For the past two years he has been very near the "border land". A serious illness compelled him to leave his work on Lake Superior. The last part of the past two years was spent in Cleveland. However, last fall he was able to begin again in a mild way and took work in this country town where he finds pleasant surroundings, a godly Bishop and a good school. He again has a home of his own, in which Hudson is most welcome. He has not heard for many months from Mr.( ) Perkins, who is in Alameda. He had thought of joining him a year ago but his plans were overruled and his health restored here.
