(1884) (Feb. )
Dorsey, E(lla) L(orraine): (Washington, D.C.)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's letter of February 3 puts into her power a project dear to her heart. She would not mention it to Mama(Anna Hanson Dorsey) as she treated any possibility of good results with "sniffishness". (Anna Dorsey) is concerned that Father Sorin made over "Zoe's Daughter" to O'Shea who is the most intolerable Irishman. Dorsey thinks a dozen or so could be saved from the wreckage of copyright with little trouble and "Tangled Paths" could be added.

Donnelly, Eleanor C: Phila(delphia, Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The Franciscan Sisters are in charge of their charity Hospital of St. Mary's which has become too contracted for the work. A new Hospital of St. Agnes is now being erected in the southern part of the city. The order has suffered from calumnies in print against the Superior, Mother Agnes, by a former member of her community who was dismissed. Mother Agnes wants to reprint Donnelly's "Rhyme of the Friar Stephen" printed in the Ave and sell it for the new hospital. Father (F.) Pila asked Donnelly to send the printed slip. He is anxious that the Italian nuns be brought before the public in the touching extremity of their want to the confusion of the bad government under whose rule the religious of Italy have suffered so much.

Dorsey, Anna H(anson):
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey sends the beginning of Part II.

Seton, William: New York, (New York)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Seton is not now able to send Brownson the letter of Brownson's father which he had promised; it is probably in a box in storage. When it is sent, however, he will appreciate its being returned, for he values anything connected with Orestes (A.) Brownson, Sr., whose loss he calls a great loss to American Catholics, attacked as he was by the Catholic press, an action Seton calls inevitable and an honor. Berrian has loaned him a couple of pamphlets on biology by Father Thomas Hughes, S.J., which he says are clearly not the work of a scientist; Father Hughes has opposed himself to such a men as Wallace, Mivart, Cope Leedy, Heilprin, Marsh, Newberry, and Asa Gray; and Seton thinks the student of nature should follow these men rather than the theologian in matters of this sort. He appreciates the liberating influence of natural science. Seton hopes the winter has been mild in Detroit and hopes to hear from Brownson soon.

Starr, E(liza) A(llen):
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The revision of Starr's "Sketch of a life in the World" has been completed. She wishes Hudson would put in a note about Father (William Henry) Hoyt. Mrs Julia Smalley gave her such full details. Starr wishes to be kept informed about Father Bigelow. She knew of (the Hoyt?) children and met others when they were young at Mrs. (Nathaniel) Tucker's in Burlington. Mr. Hoyt was one of Professor (George) Allen's dearest friends. Mrs. Thompson wrote "Concerning Converts".

This account has been carelessly neglected despite the insistence of his wife that he settle it. Mrs. Cowley, a convert, asks McMaster for his photograph since he has been her instructor for several years she hopes the forwardness of her request will be excused.

Louise of S(ain)t John Ev: Baltimore, Maryland
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Louise received McMaster's letter with much pleasure as they had missed his familiar handwriting. S(iste)r Teresa will write of her joy. She is getting better but there is a need for the mineral water she used to get when at school. They are much pleased with the books which came safely and the new little prayer books. She thanks him also for the $100 check. The holy Mother S(ain)t Teresa will keep a strict account of all he has done for them and will repay him in her own saintly way. The safe arrival of Phonie's (Jack McMaster) vessel gave them much satisfaction. P.S. She wants to be remembered to Mrs. Keiley.

The Catholic Fireside has recently secured the services of (Mary) Meline, a niece of the late James F. Meline; she went from here about two weeks ago.

Leonie, M.S.C. She looks forward to seeing him at Memramcock. Nealis has never written for an other paper except the Pilot and the St. John papers but would like to contribute to the Ave Maria.

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

Clarke's second note helps Parke remember. He had forgotten their past legal relations in the Mulrine Case. Parke took comfort in the fact that he might be able to rectify his past mistake in this letter. For several years his health and brain have been very imperfect, so much so that he resigned his duties in the fall of 1880 as Senior Vicar General and rector of the Church at Parkersburg. He went to Florida and recovered his health which is better than anytime since he had joined Bishop Whelan's Seminary and College near Richmond in 1848. But old age has its grip on Parke as he is 60 years old, 33 years a priest. Parke's notes on Bishop (Richard Vincent) Whelan are reliable and will serve as a superstructure for the later apostolic career of Whelan as Bishop of Wheeling until his death in 1874. The notes also show the division of the state in 1850 into two sees. Among others who followed their fortunes West were two students then at St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore. One of them, Father Ja(me)s Cumming is now dead. The other was Parke. Because of his connection with Whelan, Parke will be glad to help Clarke with information for a life of Whelan. Parke wants to know from what sources Clarke has drawn his data in the (Wheeling) diocese. Does Clarke have a copy of Parke's notes on the Rise and Spread of the V(irgini)a Missions, 1841-50? If not he will send the last copy he has. The history of the Wheeling Diocese will be a delicate work.

D(orsey), A(nna) H(anson): (Washington, D.C.)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey's story is modelled on a Mr. Bradford of Wilmington, Delaware, a descendant of the Puritan governor. He married a Catholic lady. His family of boys were brought up in the faith of their mother. Their eldest son, Father (George S.) Bradford is an energetic priest. General Sherman and Colonel Lee and others she knows are examples of mixed marriages. She was a bitter Protestant when she married her converted Catholic husband and did not become a Catholic for 7 years.

Her sister, Mrs. Adams of Rockford, Illinois sent "Abbie's Grandmother" to Hudson. If it has been rejected, would Hudson send it to Sister by Mr. Williams?

McMaster, James Alphonsus: New York, New York
 to Archbishop (Francis X.) Leray: (New Orleans, Louisiana)

McMaster has received from Theard a copy of the "Appeal", to which he sees Leray's name signed together with others. He will publish the "Appeal" if Leray wishes, but he would advise Leray to consult other legal advice than that of Theard alone. Theard's affection for the deceased prelate (Archbishop Napoleon J. Perche) may have warped his judgment. Perhaps another lawyer, the Hon(orable) Mr. Semmes would advise Leray not to admit the consolidarity of Perche's personal debts with the official obligations contracted as "trustee in fact" and "in equity" for the Catholic Church of New Orleans. Of one thing Leray can be assured, there will be no response to the "Appeal" outside of New Orleans, at least not more than a few thousand dollars. McMaster writes this out of friendship and regard for Leray, as a private note. If he published the "Appeal", he could not recommend it; when a like matter came up in the (Archbishop John Baptist) Purcell, case, he was among those who did not contribute one dime, saying it would be "contra bonos mores" to encourage Ecclesiastics engaging in secular speculations in hopes of making good their loses. He apoligizes for his abruptness, and asks Leray's blessing.

He encloses a piece he translated from an article published about four years ago in L'Amidu Clerge. Father (Augustin J.) Louage, (C.S.C.) looked it over. Moran saw something about Disraeli, Lord Beaconsfield having died a Catholic; did Hudson notice it? Moran saw Father (Joseph C.) Carrier, (C.S.C.).

 to James F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He intends to leave Topeka soon as the prohibition law has been poorly managed and all the business in town is running down. He had dinner with Col. Veals. They ask Edwards to take an interest in Walter. If the Kansas people are pleased they will send a large number of pupils to Notre Dame. He is glad to hear that the College is growing so rapidly. If Edwards will send him a photograph, he will make him a portrait. He is doing nicely on the study of anatomy.

Cleary, H. W.: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Cleary is glad the relics arrived safely. He has come to study in the Seminary of St. Sulpice. His own inclination was in favor of Rome but he was dissuaded by his doctor. He regrets an inconvenience caused by his absence from Rome. He has written to Signor Rossigani to dissuade him from literary pursuits for the present. He has heard that Mr. Gallagher whom he recommended has left Rome for America. Cleary is pretty sure that he would be able to find a suitable Rome correspondent for Hudson.

She has sent the manuscript of "Ash Wednesday" to John Boyle O'Reilly. She had been sending her children to a school taught by a Catholic lady but she has discontinued her school and Mannix must teach them herself. She will perhaps be obliged to send her boy who is 8 to St. Xavier's but she intends to teach the girls herself. She is waiting for (Joseph A.) Lyon's letter. Hudson can have no idea of the misery caused by the flood. She is glad he is interested in the "Fireside." She will do her best with a notice of his book.

Dorsey, Anna Hansen: (Washington, D. C.)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has remodeled the chapter by aid of Hudson's notes and an essay on "Matrimony as a Sacrament." There has been great laxity in the years past. Mrs. Madelein Vinton Dahlgren's marriage was an example. Archbishop (Martin John Spalding) Spaulding would not give a dispensation. In New York, Father (J. W.?) Cummings, pastor of St. Stephen's married them. Dorsey had not heard about the new edition of "Tangled Paths." They had no right to do it without consulting her. The copyright is hers. She wishes Hudson would get (Joseph A.) Lyons to take it in hand. She is failing.

(Hill), C.P., Father Edmund: Buenos Aires, Argentina
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hill encloses two poems. Father Provincial Thomas Stefanini (C.P.) tells him he asked Hudson to forward the Ave to them there. He saw the poem addressed to a Passionist by M.E. Jordan. Hill sailed from New York with two companions November 10 arriving at Liverpool on the 20th.The illness of one delayed their second voyage a month and allowed Hill time to see more of his family. He was delighted at the change in them regarding Catholic doctrine. There is a great growth in the direction of Catholicism since he left England in 1867. They landed here on January 20. They had stayed four days at Monte Video and gone ashore one day. They start mission work the following Shrove Tuesday. Hudson is to commend this intention to Father (Alexis) Granger's Confraternity. It is consoling to be with his brother Father Fidelis (Stone, C.P., James Kent Stone) once more. In "At Home" he would like the capitals preserved; in "Southward" he has used dashes by way of a bracket. Father (Thomas J.) Jenkins must be wondering what has become of him.

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

The Italian tribunals violated the so called Guarantees Law by passing sentence on the Propaganda Fide. The Secretary of State sent a diplomatic note to all Apostolic Nuncios containing an explanation of the sentence, the text of which Ropignoni will forward to Hudson. Ropignoni gives a list of new assignments given members of the College of Cardinals. A consistory will be held during the second week of March at which the Patriarch Archbishop (Joseph Sebastian) Neto of Lisbon and Archbishop (William) Sanfelice (de Acquavella), O.S.B. of Naples will be raised to Cardinals. (Thomas) Cardinal Martinelli will be appointed Cardinal Bishop of Sabina.

Maes, Father C(amillus) P.: Detroit, Mich(igan)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Maes has read (Orestes A. Brownson's) "Protestantism in a Nutshell" as a glass reflecting his own convictions and was pleased to find so experienced a man assuring him that he had not uncharitably misjudged the Protestant Public. However, his object is principally to call Henry's attention to the fact that page 535 of Vol. VI ( of Brownson's Works) is an exact reproduction of page 335. (Gift of Mrs. Alexis Coquillard and Mrs. Nancy Van Dyke Schumaker.)

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

She has been waiting for the "Little Book of Eternal Wisdom." She is incorrigible in her preference for the style of literature. A cousin dubbed her a regular Quietist. She thanks Hudson for the Mass for Father Aegidius (Hennemann, O.S.B.). He is buried under the altar of the chapel in the cemetery. The last favor Father Aegidius did for her was to send a medal to one of Mrs. Cosgrain's sons. Howe can never forget that Notre Dame, was a haven of refuge in stormy days.

Oechtering was in Fort Wayne last week. He inquired about priests who were by sickness disabled to do parochial work. The bishop advised to given them the honor of Rector.

Deimel, St. Michael, Schererville. Oechtering learned of two more names and is sending to learn particulars.

She is offered a place in a Protestant choir which she will have to take unless her own Church see fit to dispense with its Protestant singers. She ought not to complain for Protestants support her.

(Edes, Ella B.): (Rome, Italy)
 to Archbishop Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

Msgr. (Benjamin) Cavicchioni begs (Corrigan) not to show the copy of the Breve in his handwriting as it might be recognized. It is wonderful to find out the various intrigues of (Archbishop James Gibbons). He has succeeded in conveying the idea that he is the leading mind and man in the American Episcopate. Edes has utter contempt for him. Did (Corrigan) see that nonsense in the "Herald" of jan.24, copied from the Baltimore "Sun?" Those stories were all his. Edes thinks Gibbons is a fraud. His vanity and ambition blind him entirely. Still he has accomplished his aim. Only the other day the rector of Propaganda eulogized him. They are so stupid here that they will not see it. Is it true that (Father Thomas J.) Ducey has received his appointment as Monsignor? If they do not complain and show their teeth they will act like very great geese. It would be the only way to put a stop to such impertinence for the future and the Propaganda would gladly echo their remonstrances as it is an insult to them this continued interference of the Secretariate of State in matters which should be referred to Propaganda. (Corrigan) should write forcibly that he is much astonished that in such a matter none of the proper authorities were consulted and that a priest (Ulysses) Mori, turned out of the Diocese for reasons known to Propaganda, should have power to carry through such a thing. Cardinal (Henry Edward) Manning would do so very quickly and be the more feared and respected for it here. The American Bishops submit quietly and they care nothing for them in consequence. Edes would also let Earl Denbigh know what was thought of his impertinent proceeding in the affair. Father Schulte says the 1000 francs were received from Dr. Deane and are deposited in the bank. He does not know to whom the $100 should be given. Will (Corrigan) please write due instructions? Edes thinks there must be some bombast over the twenty papal benedictions which according to the "Catholic Review" of Jan. 5 Mgr. (Thomas) Capel was authorized to impart "the twelfth of which he had given at Mt. St. Vincent." The Cardinal says he got no such faculties. It would be well to ask to see Capel's special papers. Mori gives out he is Capel's paid agent here. Mori presented himself at the College soon after the death of the rector (Msgr. Louis Edward Hostlot) and asked if he had left a will. Imagine his impudence. The scamp.

She hopes Hudson has received all the books. O'Meara came off here to rest. The parish priest came here 24 years ago to stay a few months. When he went back to his convent the people compelled the bishop to let them have Padre Giacomo back again. O'Meara is getting up a concert for him to build a new church. Her hosts Lord and Lady Mount Temple are Anglicans but they are helping generously.

Maes, the present secretary to Bishop Borgess, is well informed on diocesan history and would be glad to help Clarke.

Henry feels that with 4 years at Mount Saint Mary's and two years at the Engineer School at Troy, Willie could do well at West Point. He is sorry Robert's accident prevented him from accepting the invitations he spoke of but he hopes Robert is exaggerating the extent of his injury and will soon be up and around. He has met a priest who knew Robert in Rome, Father Aloisis M. Folchi. He hopes to be back east in two years.

Her birthday will be spent at Sharon (Hill, Pennsylvania), but she will not get to Baltimore until Easter. All John's friends have been asking about him; she sends him much love and assures him of many prayers.

Shea, John Gilmary: Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father (Daniel J. Spillard: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Dennis and James) Sadlier sent Shea a note of Spillard's to them, which makes Shea regret extremely the offence given. As a rule they (Catholic Almanac) print the reports of the Bishops as they come, and never alter except by the consent of the Bishop, for which they have to write. Messrs. Sadlier do not compile the Almanac, Shea as editor knows nothing of their business correspondence. This year the Bishop of Fort Wayne refused to furnish a report; Shea wrote to every parish and institution. From Notre Dame he asked a list of all Fathers belonging to the Community in this country and made up his report scrupulously from this. That he could go wrong in following it, he never suspected. Many, however, write to Messrs. Sadlier on business and say something intended for the Editor, which the clerks in the book store are apt to overlook. Shea alters spelling or post office addresses as desired, but the Bishop of his Secretary will often in the last proof restore the erroneous spelling they have adopted.

Edes, Ella B.: Rome, (Italy)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

(Marked) Private - She is writing a full account of the death of the Rector of the American College (Monsignor Louis Edward Hostlot) to Monsignor (John H.) Farley. She heard the news of his death while on her way to see him. They feel his loss very much at Propaganda. The Cardinal ( ) always said that he was the only rector of the American College who has always "d'accordo" with Propaganda. She hopes that the new rector will be made to understand that his is the best courses, neither Bishop(William George) McCloskey nor Bishop (Francis Silas) Chatard understood this. Monsignor (Austin J.) Schulte, the vice rector is in charge for the present; he is a nice humble fellow, but young and inexperienced. She hopes that the "the Primate" (Archbishop James Gibbons?) will not be allowed to choose the new rector as he might choose Father (Denis J.) O'Connell. Possibly Father ( ) de Concillo would choose Father Pat(rick) Corrigan. Edes hopes they will choose Farley, as he would be acceptable and speaks Italian. She encloses a copy of the Brief delegating Baltimore (Gibbons) to convoke a council. It is for (Corrigan) and the Cardinal only; they are not to show it to anyone or speak of it as it might get them into a scrape. She is amused by the poor faith of the American Episcopate. (Corrigan) will remember that he was almost reluctant to speak for Farley because they had agreed not to ask for dioceses for anyone. Yet Chatard asked for and obtained a Domestic Prelate. Several changes will be made in Rome. Angelo (Cardinal) Jacobini will probably be Vicar; (Joseph Cardinal) Pecci or possibly (Innocent Cardinal) Ferrieri, Vice Chancellor. (Corrigan) should write Propaganda and protest "the Ducey Affair," and they would be happy to complain to the Vatican.

 to R(ichard) H(enry) Clarke: New York, (New York)

Gilmour thanks Clarke for offering the opportunity of vindicating the memory of Bishop (Louis Amadeus) Rappe, whose biography Clarke is preparing. Rappe deserves to be placed in a proper and truthful light in history and before the World. He has not deserved the treatment he received, but his vindication is a delicate task as many parties of the later diocesan administration of Rappe are still living. Gilmour is willing to write out the facts of Rappe's trouble or if necessary, to come to New York personally. However, Gilmour cannot appear as a contributor or Clarke's advisor, for patent reasons. P.S. Gilmour is reliably informed that Rappe's vote in the Vatican Council was in favor of papal infallibility.

His father brought home John's letters (Feb. 11, 1884), and they were happy to hear from him. She is writing this letter on the hope that he will be delayed at Lisbon; it will not reach him otherwise. If they have not written him it is not because they do not love him. She encloses a story her Father read her with tears in her eyes last Saturday. When they saw the notice of the safe arrival of the Havilah two weeks ago they thanked God for John's safe arrival. Many prayers are being offered for him, so she trusts he will arrive at Home, safely again in May or June. When she said "all (his) friends". She meant the Keileys, the Harpers, the Browns, Mrs. Henwood, and the Egans. She has not seen Mary Ellen, and would not know her if she did. She will tell Joe, who has not gone on the voyage to give her John's message. She will give Shorty his message if she can. She saw Richard Hamilton but could not say much to him. Sister St. John (McMaster, S.H.C.J.) and Sister Teresa (McMaster, D.C.) are praying for him, but have not written because his father did not think the letters would reach him. They will all love him and worry about him, and hope to see him soon again. Enclosure: A clipping, "Life in France", reprinting a sailor's letter.

Since he found no record of its payment he encloses a check for $25. to pay the remainder of that bill and ask that the balance be credited to his account. When McMaster has occasion to write his daughter (Helen McMaster), (Sister Teresa of Jesus) in the Carmelite (Convent in Baltimore) he wishes that a request for her prayers for him be included. He also sends his regards to Miss (Gertrude) McMaster.

Hudson's energy and industry have secured 16,000 subscribers to the Ave Maria. She is an Irish Dominicaness whose convent was founded during penal times in Ireland in 1639 for Irish Ladies by a Portuguese countess. The house flourished until the taking of Lisbon by Junot when it was pillaged. About 22 years ago Cardinal Cullen sent out some nuns from his diocese. They opened a noviciate here which she joined in 1865. Their noviciate is now in Galway; there is no leave here for profession. Father T(homas) J. Towers, (O.P.), the present provincial, comes over for the annual canonical visitation. Father ( ) Keane who was a parish priest of St. Michael and John's is going to join their order. She was much interested in hearing that the Sisters of the Holy Cross print the Ave. Miss Dalton who wrote the Mortuary is an English governess in Portugal. Dalton will leave all details of publishing to Hudson.

She thanks Hudson for discovering the errors in the chapter returned. Father (James A.) Doonan told her that in Baltimore it was easier to get dispensations for mixed marriages than anywhere else in the country. Angie's husband, whose Father was General Eastman, was baptized in his infancy at Fort McHenry by a Catholic Priest. When he married after graduating from west Point no difficulty was offered by Archbishop Kenrick or Father (D.) Lynch, S.J. who married them. She wants to call attention to the book notices in the Scholastic to avert harm: The critic had a good word for "Through the Administration" when the secular papers condemned it. They praised Frank Stockton's story until she called attention to it. Now she finds a laudatory note for "The Pearl in the Lotus" which she considers a most bitter book against the temporal power of the Pope.

Oechtering, Father A(ugust) B.: Mishawaka, Ind(iana)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The article referred to in the Pastor's Monthly is an answer to the one in the Quarterly Review entitled "Converts." It is plain O'Shea is meant. The Pastor's Monthly finds in some other papers attacks upon priests of German descent. Apparently it refers to the Cincinnati Telegraph. Father Walsh told him that a Catholic of Council Bluffs told him how the Catholics fell away because the priest would not allow them to have their own church.

Is Father J. Rese, (C.S.C.), of Hudson's community, a relative of the late Bishop (Frederick) Rese of Detroit? If Father Rese is a nephew of the bishop, Clarke will write him as he is thinking of writing volume 3 of the Lives of the American Bishops. If there is no copy of the 2 volumes since the burning of the building and library, Clarke will present one to the University. Father (Peter Paul) Cooney, (C.S.C.), dined with them at Morristown on Christmas day. (A Pencilled note on the letter): There is a multilated copy in the student's library saved from the fire. There is no copy in the college library and they would be glad to have it.

Colette, Sister M(ary): London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Would Hudson mind publishing "Lost" and "Lotte" without the name of the author? The reason is that the publisher who is going to bring out these tales in England wishes to secure a sale in America. Rev. Mother (Mary Magdalene Taylor) did not know this before. She has another tale ready called "Miss Tea".
