Quigley, Father Thomas: Henry, (Illinois)
 to James Alphonsus McMaster: (New York, New York)

Father Quigley sends McMaster a new subscriber, his brother, Michael Quigley, in response to the appeal in the last number of the Freeman's Journal. Quigley believes he owes this to McMaster in return for the death notices inserted for his late first cousin, Father Edw(ar)d Quigley. McMaster expresses Quigley's views entirely as does every Catholic priest, with the condemnation of secret societies, dynamite, and assassination. It is difficult to treat practical politics when they oppose established usages because many are misunderstood and misrepresented regardless of circumstances and provocations. In the case of (Charles S.) Parnell and his friends, it is easy to raise the cry of Communism but not so easy to prove them guilty. These men must deal in bold language and the English surely do not observe the Gospel in dealing with them. Irish Catholics in considering this are tolerant towards Parnell. McMaster seems to be rather guarded in his recent editorials on the Irish situation. Quigley, a long subscriber to the Freeman's Journal, once met McMaster in N(ew) York. His family, located in Will(mington) Co(unty) about 50 miles from Chicago, were early settlers in Illinois. He has three brothers living, all farmers, who have helped the Irish Catholics in this section to build up a fine church at a place called 12 Mile Grove, where a large congregation meets. This achievement was attained by their own industry and sense of religion and not by any colonization agency.

P.S. He sends his brother's mailing address.

Parke, Father H.F.: Charleston, West V(irgini)a
 to Rich(ar)d H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

In 1880, before Father J(ohn) J(oseph) Kain left for Rome, he asked Parke to draw up a sketch of the development of the West V(irgini)a Missions up until Wheeling became a distinct see in 1850. While doing this Parke included a brief review of the history of Bishop (Richard Vincent) Whelan's labors while he was ordinary of Virginia—1841 to 1850. His notes were reliable and Parke will send a copy to Clarke. Parke has no inclination to continue his notes after 1850 or to appear in print. Still, it is a matter of importance to the men who served under Whelan that he be set forth in Clarke's forthcoming work. He does not know Clarke or his book. Parke will be in Wheeling for some months after January 6.

Passerini, Monsignor I(lario): Rome, (Italy)
 to (Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

Passerini has never forgotten (Seton) but he doubts if it is the same with (Seton) for he sees that he "courts" Monsignor (Agapito) Panici and not a word to Passerini! Through Archbishop (Michael Augustine) Corrigan Passerini heard good news and although he foresees they may never see each other again he hopes they will meet in eternity. Passerini's official position is Clerk of the Apostolic Chamber, formerly a brilliant one but now almost nothing. But he is a Consultor in Propaganda for which he works. He hopes that the future plenary Council of the United States will bring all the usefulness desired. The Bishops have done their preparatory task admirably.

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

Rossignani's friend, Henry O'Cleary, wrote that by sending some notes, Rossignani might become a writer for the Ave Maria. Hoping this will be realized, he sends these notes. December 8: Several days ago, Mr. Erringhton (Bishop George Errington?) arrived in Rome and has already called on Cardinal (Louis) Jacobini, Secretary of State. But he is most frequently at Propaganda to which he owes the famous letter against (Charles Stewart) Pornell, the letter which put him further into the good graces of (William Ewart) Gladstone. Today, Erringhton invited Monsignor Domenico Jacobini, Secretary of Propaganda, to lunch at his house. Jacobini, a great admirer of the Irish, imagines that Ireland will obtain whatever it wants. It is wonderful how such a nation can be so generous toward the prisoner of the Vatican. This week Pope (Leo XIII) received 130,000 pounds through Bishop (Tobias) Kerby. Concerning the pilgrimages to the tomb of Victor Emmanuel, up until now, the number signed up is between 55,000 and 60,000 with a discount of 75 percent on trains and with free lodging. As the pilgrims increase, this official demonstration has made the government seem ridiculous. The Holy See succeeded in rendering sterile the project of a monument in the Pantheon. Cardinal (Aeneas)Sbarretti, titular of the Pantheon knowing the plan of Minister Baccelli, informed Cardinal (Domenico) Bartolini, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation of Rites. They took a vote to see how the papal bulls would avoid the execution of this project. The Cardinals met with the Secretary of State. They knew that the court was opposed to Baccelli's project. Baccelli yielded, partly because he know the court favored the Cardinals and partly because he saw that his purpose, the desecration of the church, was discovered. The monument of Victor Emmanuel will be in the altar of the Holy Spirit as a painting of Cabruzzi representing the coming of the Holy Spirit. There will be small monument of Rafael Sanzio of Urbino which includes the district of Cardinal (Louis Mary) Lembo. The American bishops held their last meeting on December 13. As usual there took part in this meeting, Cardinal Angelo Jacobini, (John Baptist) Franzelfn, deputed by the Pope; Bishop (Louis) Sopiacel of Callinico; and (Antonio Agliardi) Airdi, a clerk of Propaganda. About the latter two, the newspapers have announced their mission in the United States as taking part in the Council to be held after the election of the president. But the news is very premature. Today, Cardinal (John) Simeoni gave farewell dinner. Other notables were invited besides the bishops and archbishops. (The guest list is given). Tomorrow the Bishops will have a farewell audience with the Pope. The coadjutor, of New York, Bishop (Michael A. Corrigan) will leave tomorrow in order to attend the (anniversary?) Mass of Cardinal (John McCloskey). On the 18th perhaps Bishop (John Joseph Williams) of Boston will leave. The big question of the day is the visit of the Imperial Prince to the Pope. It is the Prince who is asking for the audience. He is not a Catholic and in the eyes of the Vatican he is not wrong in having done his duty. The Pope would be submitting if he received some Catholic sovereign or his heir. It is said that the King of Spain desired to come to Rome to visit King Huzbert. The Pope has obtained from the Emperor, an amnesty for Bishop (Peter Joseph) Blum of Limburg who was deposed by an edict of June 13, 1877. Suspended rights and privileges were restored in Limburg on October 1, 1883. Bismarck, who made the Prince ask for an audience, will show that Italy is afraid of the Pope while the Pope is not afraid of Italy. The Pope wishes what is his and nothing more. On February 17, a true pilgrimage will go from Brussels to Rome to visit the tombs of the Apostles. It will be directed by Father Al( ) Vereechen, vicar of Brussels. The 13th, Grand Duke Paul of Russia was received by the Pope. It is hoped that in a short time the agreement will be kept which was recently concluded between Russia and the Holy See.

Hoffman, M. S.: Brookville, Pennsylvania.
 to James Alphonsus McMaster: New York, (New York)

A year ago, Hoffman subscribed and paid for the Freeman's Journal for a period of six months, expecting the paper to be stopped at the end of that time. The paper has continued to arrive however so Hoffman asks for a statement up to the first of the year. A young man, 30 years of age, who has taught public school in the rural districts for 5 years, desires to join the Brotherhood and to teach in Catholic schools, and requests McMaster's opinion as to which order he should join. Although he knows some German, he would prefer to join an English order and to pursue studies in English. This man has already been counselled by his confessor to aspire to a higher voation but his money and talent render this impossible to reach. Hoffman encloses a stamp so that McMaster may reply to the inquiry at the same time that he sends his subscription bill.
