1884 Mar. 1,
Corrigan, M(ichael), Archbishop of Petra: New York, (New York)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

In a letter marked "Private", Corrigan comments on the spoliation of Propaganda, calling attention to a strong protest by an Italian liberal who says he cannot understand how a government that legalizes houses of Prostitution can permit Houses of Christion piety and prayer. This liberal is quoted by De. Angelis: (book) 3, tit(le) 31, vol(ume) 2, part 2, page 93. Corrigan quotes him in detail, where he expresses regret over the Italian state's policies. In a post script Corrigan says that one "Bar Jona" is a priest but no bishop, that he was expelled from Propaganda, but later ordained at home. He was denie permission to collect by Corrigan, and later by F(athe)r (John M.) Farley, but he told Bishop (Michael) W. Wigger (of Newark) that he had such permission. Last week, or this week he pretended (in the Diocese of Rochester) to be a Bishop of this state (N.Y.).

1884 Mar. 3,
Van der Sanden, (Father) H(enry): St. Louis, M(issouri)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): N(ew) Y(ork), (New York)

In a letter intended for publication, Van der Sanden states that his intention has been called to the little sketch of the life of (Father) John Mary Irenaeus St. Cyr, which appeared in the Catholic Family Annual for 1844. Van der Sanden, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, finds several mistakes in the article. The day on which Father St. Cyr was ordained in the Cathedral of St. Louis, April 6, 1833, was not Good Friday as the article stated, but Holy Saturday, for on Good Friday no ordination whatever is allowed. Father St. Cyr was not born on Jan. 2, 1804, but on Nov. 2, 1803. He was ordained subdeacon in the Diocese of Lyons, France, not at Barrens, Missouri, as the article states, and already was subdeacon when he came to the Diocese, not the Vicarate, of St. Louis, There are also misstatements in the notice on Right Reverend Joseph Rosati, first Bishop of St. Louis. Vander Sanden thinks anyone who writes such notices should get himself better informed before beginning the task.

(Jacobini), D(ominico), Archbishop of Tyre, Secretary: Rome, (Italy)
 to Filippo Pacelli: (Rome, Italy)

The Sacred Congregation of the Propaganda in full session on January 28, 1884, considered against the case of Father Patrick Gleeson, and decided that the basis for the suspension was not proved. Archbishop (Peter Richard Kenrick)'s action is not sustained. Father Gleeson is still bound by his vows as a member of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) and does not have the faculties of the diocese. (Note apparently by Ella B. Edes): This is the decision in the case of Gleeson of Saint Louis. She thinks it is shameful. It may be according to canon law, but not to right and charity.

Kemper, Philip A.: Dayton, O(hio)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Kemper thanks Hudson for his kind interest in Kemper's affairs. He took the verse from a small prayer sheet published by Sullivan of New York. He did not consider it wrong since it was sent to him from a Catholic House in Paris. The expression "Sweet Heart of Mary be my Salvation", he took from the Raccolta - the correctness of which he thought beyond question. Notwithstanding the large quantity of artistic productions that Kemper has imported from the Dusseldorf Society the past few years, he cannot obtain a duplication from the Mayer Art Institute of their small engravings. Mr. B. Herder of St. Louis is the agent for Dusseldorfer pictures in the United States. Kemper quotes prices on pictures he can furnish. Tell Father Louis L'Etourneau that Kemper received his letter.

R(yder), E(liot): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ryder writes regarding the correction necessary in his work submitted to the Ave Maria. Recalling Christ's assertion "Except a man leave father and mother etc., he can in no wise be my disciple", it seems to Ryder that the true disciple might do. But he prefers to leave the matter with Hudson. Regards to Joseph.

Egan, Maurice Francis: (New York, New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Key Frances, Cuba)

Egan has had two letters from Larned (?), who enjoys Colorado, but because of trouble with his partner, is thinking of going to Texas in late spring. He tells John this in the hope that John will sometime turn his thoughts to the plains, where a man is free and can also make money. He saw Gertrude who was well, and M(arc) Valleth (?) with whom he will have a rousing time. Mrs. Egan and Pasty (Egan) send their love.

McMaster, Ja(mes Alphonsus): (New York, New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Key Frances, Cuba)

There have been many blunders about getting letters to John. Perhaps the American Consul in Lisbon forwarded Gert(rude) (McMaster's) letters to John's new address as McMaster asked him to. Now McMaster is sending letters from Gert(rude), from "Frank" (Maurice Francis Egan), and from (J.) Gallagher, now knowing whether the American Consular Agent or Clerk at Caibarien (Cuba) will forward the letters to Key Frances. The owners of the Havilah have vague ideas of what Captain Atwood may do, since he was given complete freedom in choosing his course. They all miss John very much, and McMaster would have included a letter from Sister Teresa (McMaster, D.C.) if he were sure it would reach him John is much inquired after and much prayed for. Gertrude, who grows sweeter daily, spent her birthday with Sister St. John (McMaster, S.H.C.J.) at Sharon (Hill, Pennsylvania)

(Gallagher), John (J.): New York, (New York)
 to J(ohn Alphonsus McMaster): (Key Frances Cuba)

John's father allowed Gallagher to read the letter telling of his safe arrival in Lisbon. Gallagher thinks John must be a regular "old salt" now, and he asks him to write him a letter, using nautical terms. He often reads John's letter from Rio. There are no sports, nor anything else of interest in New York. He sends Regards.

1884 Mar. 6
Mannix, Mary E.: Cin(cinnati,) O(hio)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Mannix has not been able to reply to Hudson because she has been helping her get things ready for the presentation of the creditor's case to the Supreme Court. The clergy attacks Mannix's husband for carrying matters too far against the Church, while the creditors accuse him of being under the thumb of clergy. Catholics of this diocese ought to make an effort to pay the debt. Many Protestants and Jews have expressed a willingness to help. In Mannix's opinion the fault lies almost with the clergy, who in the beginning were indifferent when the laity were willing to help. Mannix sends Hudson notice of a pamphlet. She could never do (Frances) Howe Justice. Comments are made concerning Catholic Literature.

Dallas, A(lexander) I.: San Antonio, Fl(orid)a
 to Rich(ard) H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

Dallas acknowledges Clarke's of February 28. He has been in San Antonio since January 2 building a house which will have to be added to 3 other houses on being built. They had two priests with them temporarily, Fathers (Edward) Dunne and (D.) Hishen of Chicago. After Easter the Bishop has promised to do all he can to get a priest for them permanently. Bishop (John Moore) was there and received the titles for the church and its lots. Clarke's emphatic no has simplified his position greatly. Judge (Edmund F.) Dunne will open a grove on shares for him. Dallas would do the same. Absentee owners rarely see any return for their money and Dallas cannot recommend anyone to open groves for this reason. He did not know anyone sufficiently well to promise for them. If Dallas undertook it, he could promise only to do the best with the means furnished by the owner and then not until he retired from active duty. The colony is a success. The man at the head is a born leader of men. They have about 55 colonists—heads of families. Dallas does not think any Catholic settlement can compete with it. The main object of the colony has been achieved—a large enough settlement to get a priest and school. Clarke could learn more from his proposed trip than a dozen letters. Purchase means settlement in San Antonio with Judge Dunne. Dunne intends an actual settlement of Catholics and discourages purchase of land for other reasons. Clarke's intention of spending the winter there might suffice and it would be perfectly practical for his son to buy land there. He trusts that Clarke will visit them; eventhough there are no hotels, he can be provided for.

(McMaster), Gertrude: (New York, New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Key Frances, Cuba)

Having been informed by her father that there is a steamer leaving New York (on March 8, 1884), she is writing a few lines to John. She has been visiting Sharon (Hill, Pennsylvania), where she found Sister St. John (McMaster, S.H.C.J.) not much better, but bright and cheerful. She hopes the voyage to Key Frances (West Indies) and to New York will not be stormy. (Maurice Francis) Egan said he had written; she hopes the letters reach John. She sends him much love.

McMaster, Ja(mes) A(lphonsus): (New York, New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Key Frances, Cuba)

Although McMaster wrote John (on March 6, 1884), he writes again by today's steamer. Gertrude (McMaster) came home with a cold in her head. The weather is bad, but not so bad as when John left New York, Captain Atwood wrote on Jan. 26, (1884) that the weather was the worst he had ever met, and his owners have not heard from him since, so they were glad to have McMaster tell them of John's letter of Feb. 10, (1884). McMaster encloses a two-dollar greenback not wishing to send more because he does not know if it will reach John. If John gets to Caiberien (Cuba) he should call on the acting Consul, whom McMaster has written, and who will treat John kindly.

(McMaster, John Alphonsus): Aboard the Brig Havilah
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster and Gertrude McMaster): (New York, New York)

John has had an excellent run since he left Lisbon. February 24 was the last day he was on shore. The people were just beginning a three day carnival and there were myriads of costumes. In the evening, he went to an American circus. They heaved anchor on March 2. After sailing down the Tagus, they set sail for the West Indies. March 10 - The weather is calm - March 16 - the calm remained with them till Friday. If the winds keep up they should be at Key Francis in less than two weeks - March 27 - as the steward was sick, he had to take care of mess - March 28 - the island of Santo Domingo was sighted - March 30 - they were tacking all last night but did not gain any distance. April 1st - Today is the paper's birthday. He is almost certain they will not be home before May 18. As he will not be able to hear mass on Easter Sunday, he asks McMaster to pray for him.

Carroll, Sister M(ary) Austin: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to J(ames) A(lphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Sister Austin is grateful for McMaster's letter. Spanish Honduras is quite different from British Honduras, and although she does not know the condition of the former when McMaster's correspondent saw it 19 years ago, she knows that it is in a very bad condition as to religion at the present time. She asks that the Freeman's Journal be sent to the Convent of Mercy, Biloxi, Miss(issippi) and that she be given a statement of the account of the Sisters of Mercy of Pensacola, Florida. This last paper is regularly sent to the Dominican Sisters but there is no Dominican Community there so the Sisters of Mercy receive it. Mr. Elder settled their last bill for them some time ago. Her prayers have been offered for McMaster's delicate health, along with prayers to St. Lucy for his eyes. A church for the coloured people is to be erected in (New Orleans) and although situated in the Redemptorist parish, it will be in charge of the Jesuits. The Methodists are stealing the coloured people from the Catholics since they have churches throughout the South. Since coming to New Orleans on March 28, 1869 the Sisters of Mercy have established 7 branches, each of which has a school attached for coloured children. She asks for McMaster's prayers that these people be made children of the Church. The South was colonized by the Catholics and should have remained so, were not some of these to whom the "Keys" were trusted, unfaithful. Their prayers are continually offered for zealous and devoted bishops and priests who will stir up the Faith in the hearts of the multitude.

Chatard, F(rancis) S(ilas) Bishop of Vincennes: Indianapolis, Ind(iana)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton): Jersey City, New Jersey

He thanks Seton for his letter. His Vicar General, (Father August Bessonies) is of good family, and is connected by marriage with M. Certes of the Propagation, and has been 43 years in the diocese. Miss M.P. Thompson of the Catholic World, while writing her articles in the south of France, discovered some curious information. Chatard's great grandfather who came out to Santo Domingo evidently enjoyed the advantages of education as results from his letters in Chatard's possession. Thompson found a Pierre Chatard, Canon of the Diocese of Limoges in 1458; also a Guillaume Chatard at the court of the Due de Bourbon. She also came across a Chatard de Rochedagoux who fought at Poitiers in 1387. Chatard has communicated this information to his cousin Alfred Chatard in Paris and he will probably look the matter up.

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

Muir is grateful for (Francis) Howe's little volume. She isn't feeling well, hence she has nothing ready for the Ave Maria. Bishop (Joseph Macheboeuf) recently bought a large hotel. The fervor of the Church is being poured forth and as that charity excites her to disgust, knowing the trials of the working women, she could not refrain from some bitter remarks which would be no good coming from a girl whose religious opinions are unorthodox. Eleanor Donnelly's last in the Ave Maria is to her credit. Catholicity offers women the choice, marry or become a nun. Protestantism allows some right of earning a living in the world. She wishes Hudson could have heard Father (M) Brennan's story of Stockton, the desperado who held a county in terror.

Murphy, (Father) T(imothy) J.: Flint, Mich(igan)

(Father) Murphy sends McMaster a letter, the publication of which would please him greatly. This letter is signed "Sacerdos", and is addressed to the Reverend Clergy of the United States. In it he describes the practise of wine and liquor dealers in sending their circulars to priests in envelopes addressed to "Mr. , dealer in imported wines and liquors". Father Murphy points out that this may well be an organized plan to bring dishonor and disgrace on the clergy, by making the public believe the clergy favors the traffic in whisky, etc. Father Murphy does not question the right of the clergy to purchase wine and liquor; he wishes, however, to put an end to the nuisance and urges them to shun the dealers who make use of this method of soliciting trade.

Gross, Bishop W(illia)m H(ickey): Savannah, (Georgia)
 to R(ichard Henry) Clark(e): (New York, New York)

In reply to Clarke's of March 12, Gross recommends Father H(enry) Clavreul, pastor at Mandarin, Florida. Clavreul was in Savannah during all the time of Bishop (John M.) Verot's reign. He also accompanied the bishop on his apostolic visitations of his diocese. When Verot retired to Florida he took Clavreul with him, who faithfully stayed until Verot's death. Clavreul preached a highly interesting funeral discourse about Verot. Clavreul wields a facile pen and could give much information on Verot. Verot was pastor at Ellicott's City, M(arylan)d when Gross was a little college boy at the petit seminaire—St. Charles. Verot edified all by his assiduous care of the many slaves belonging to the Carroll family whose estates joined the college. He was a great favorite among the college boys and his many saintly qualities caused him to be regarded as a saint by all. Bishop I(gnatius C.) Persico has a bishopric somewhere in the Kingdom of Naples now.

O'Boylan, B. M.: Corning, O(hio)
 to James Alphonsus McMaster: (New York, New York)

O'Boylan answers McMaster's letter of Mar. 14, insisting that he did not ask McMaster to defend him in the "Freeman", but simply because his Bishop has forbidden his writing in his own favor, he gave McMaster the facts of McDewitt's abduction in the hope that McMaster whom he has always regarded as a fearless journalist, would be able to correct some of the false statements in the secular press. O'Boylan was grossly libeled in the Eastern papers and the McDewitt case was falsely stated, but since he was declared innocent by the court the press has once more been turning around in his favor. Regarding the reading of the Catholic journals he says that when he came to the (Ohio) valley two years ago there was neither church nor Catholic literature, but now he has besides thirty or forty "Columbian" subscriptions, a goodly number of others, eighteen of which he distributes at his personal expense. He is able to stand the brunt of public opinion, and does not need a foreign paper, to defend him in his own diocese. He takes McMaster's letter cheerfully, being used to pert remarks and attacks, but McMaster's letter implies that he has negelcted his people in regard to reading, but this implication is false, as his Bishop, his fellow-priests, and various magazine e itors k ow. He apoligizes for the egotistical tone of his letter, and begs McMaster's pardon for all the trouble he has caused.

O'Connor, Bishop James: Omaha, Nebraska
 to R(ichard) H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

O'Connor regrets that he knows of no documents or other data that will throw light on the life and labor of his brother, (Bishop Michael O'Connor, S.J.). His brother destroyed nearly all of his correspondence, before and after his entrance into the Society of Jesus. A few letters of a personal nature were forwarded from Woodstock after his death. The files of the "Pittsburg Catholic", "The Catholic Church in the Diocese of Pittsburg and Alleghany" by Father A(ndrew) A. Lambing, and the Woodstock Letters are the only sources O'Connor can give. Lambing is correct, in the main, as far as his book refers to the bishop. O'Connor gives a summary of the life of Bishop O'Connor, from his birth until he was called by Father P(eter) R(ichard) Kenrick to Philadelphia for Bishop (Francis Patrick) Kenrick.

O'Connor knows nothing of his Predecessor, Bishop (James M.M.) O'Gorman. He found no records of O'Gorman's administration when he came to the vicariate and has only met O'Gorman once for a couple of hours. The (monks) at New Melleray, (Iowa) would no doubt be able to give a full account of O'Gorman's life and labors. O'Gorman had been Abbot of New Melleray.

Bland, R(ichard) P.: Washington, D.C.
 to Ja(me)s A(lphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Bland acknowledges the receipt of McMaster's letter of Mar. 17,. The coinage committee of the 46th Congress reported on a bill giving full weight and unlimited tender to the half dollar, but the bill was not reached. Our silver coinage is abnormal, and it is difficult to say what should be done with subsidiary coinage. If the halves and quarters be made full weight on the dollar, the Latin Union would again open their mints to unlimited silver coinage, and the dollar and halves and quarters would all be exported. Now the difficulty is that our (the United States) laws make token money of our silver because we refuse unlimited coinage. 16 to 1 is not the solution of Europe. Were this country to make treaties with European countries 15 would no doubt be agreed upon. Bland thinks we had better wait, but he agrees with McMaster on the principle that the subsidiary output should be full weight and full tenure.

Van Dyke is sorry to hear that Hudson is ill. Archbishop (William) McCloskey wrote Van Dyke that out of the four names for the rectorship of the American College in Rome, Van Dyke's was the most favorably received. He does not expect to get the position since Eastern bishops take care to keep that post for themselves. He supposes Archbishop (Michael) Corrigan will determine that matter.

Egan has considered what John said about the Steward and shall act on it because John asks him to and because the Steward is John's friend; but first he must know what the steward can do and where he was previously employed. John's father is well, and Gertrude (McMaster) has recovered from her illness. Egan has lost track of the theaters during Lent, but Booth and McCullough have both had successes. John will come back cured of sea fever, and Egan can say this because John cannot hit back. There is a Japanese wrestler in New York who fights mainly with his head; he can knock over any sailor that ever trod a quarter deck.

 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Brophy, writing from St. Louis College, avails himself of the opportunity offered in McMaster's circular and encloses an advertisement for insertion in the Freeman's Journal. He asks that he be given a statement of his account with the paper and that the mailing address changed. He thanks McMaster for the splendid notice concerning the school which was made during the previous summer, probably at the suggestion of Bambrick, and appreciates it more since McMaster is not in the habit of singling out any one institution for praise. A small school like St. Louis College, with a limited number of pupils, is a necessity in New York, since its policy is to provide every educational advantage and a practical religious training. Many of their pupils would not be in any Catholic school were it not for the College because some of the parents prefer a school under lay control in which every professor is a specialist. With the exception of the newspaper profession. Brophy knows of no other profession in which a layman can do so much good as he can in a school conducted upon thrue Catholic principles.

The morning's (New York) Herald announced that the "Havilah" sailed from Lisbon March 2, (1884), which would put it half way across the ocean to Cuba by now. Captain Coombs counts 30 days passage, 10 days to load, and 10 days passage to New York, which would mean that John will come home in May. They will be glad to see him, and do not intend moving until he comes. The Cuban climate is feverish, so he should be on his guard. Enclosed are letters from Gert(rude McMaster) and "Frank" (Maurice Francis Egan); next time he hopes to be able to send letters from Sister Teresa (McMaster; D.C.) and Sister St. John (McMaster, S.H.C.J.), who is confined to bed. John is asked to write upon reaching Key Frances. McMaster has already written him twice there, enclosing two dollars in the last letter. If he wants money upon getting there he should write, and McMaster will send it, but he should not change his money into Cuban paper which is mostly worthless. McMaster wonders if John got all the letters sent to Lisbon. Now that he is only seven days distant, they can write him oftener.

He wishes he could give far more. In the next number of the "Freeman" will be published acknowledgements for the total received, $104.50. He has already sent $50.00; now he sends $80.00, or $5.50 more than was received, but he will not let the matter rest there. (Bishop Silvas M.) Chatard is a failure in financial management, but is by disposition a very good man and ought to be be of help to Father Audran. He asks Father Audran to pray for him, and encloses some letters.

Northrop, Bishop H(enry) P(inckney): Charleston, S(outh) C(arolina)
 to Rich(ard) H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

In answer to Clarke's letter of Mar. 10, Northrop knows of nothing to add to the life of Bishop (Patrick Neeson) Lynch given after his death in the (Charleston) paper which he sent to Clarke. There are some pages in Dr. J.J. O'Connell's book, which it was thought Lynch prepared himself. Archbishop (John McCloskey) of New York was his bosom friend and might give Clarke some information. Father (James A.) Corcoran was a fellow student and a little pumping might get many facts about Lynch at Charleston, on his mission for (Jefferson) Davis to the Pope, and things he never revealed to Northrop's generation.

(Engelhardt), O.S.F., F(ather) Zephyrin: New York, (New York)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

F(ather) Zephyrin, Superior of the Catholic Indian Mission at Keshena, Wisc(onsin), on the Menominee Reserva(tion), writes McMaster to call his attention to a clipping from the "Catholic Citizen", which he encloses. The clipping describes the fire which destroyed the Keshena mission. F(ather) Zephyrin has been to Washington to get help, and reports that he hopes by next year to get a contract to educate children, which has so far been done without government aid. He has received $50.00 from the Catholic Indian Bureau, which under its new head, Capt(ain) John Mullan, is taking the case in hand and is proving of great moral help with the Commissioner, since F(ather) Zephyrin has to contend against a veritable bigot, an infidel bigot of an agent. But neither moral support nor $50.00 will relieve his Indians and Sisters. He asks that McMaster call attention to his distress. His Emminence (John) Cardinal (McCloskey) has forbidden him to go on a collection tour, and the R(igh)t Rev(erend) Bishop (John) Loughlin found it inconvenient to permit a tour until after Easter. But surely McMaster's readers will have money to give at all times. In the Menominee Reserve, 48 miles northwest of Green Bay, there are 1500 Indians, about 1000 of whom are Catholics, the remainder being pagans. There are 3 Franciscan priests, 3 lay brothers, 5 sisters. The Indians are peaceful, and take up arms only against each other. There are 3 stations on the reservation where Mass is said, of these the principal one is in ashes. The Fathers have no intention of leaving the mission, but will continue there, For any benefactors two Holy Masses will be said every week as long as the priests are there. He begs McMaster to help him, adding that strong men wept when the thirty year old church was destroyed. If McMaster should publish anything, would he please send him a copy? (An encloses clipping from "The Catholic Citizen" Mar. 1, 1884, contains a letter by) F(ather) Zephyrin, in which he describes the fire of unknown origin which, on Feb. 22, 1884, at 3 o'clock (a.m.) destroyed the boarding school and church of the Franciscan mission at Keshena. He begs help of the "Citizen" readers.
