Loeuenich, Father J.: Topeka, Kan(sas)
 to Ja(me)s (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

(Father) Loeuenich sends McMaster a clipping from the Wyondotte Herald, consisting of a letter by (Father) A. Kuhls about the St. Mary's Hospital at Wyondotte, Kansas. (Father) Loeuenich considers the story of the hospital one of honor and credit to the Catholic West. Not many similar examples can be cited from the East. (Father) Loeuenich wishes to offend no one, he only wishes to show the growth of the Church in the West. In a marginal note he tells McMaster to use all this at his own discretion. (Clipping Enclosed).

(McMaster) D.C. Sister Teresa of Jesus: Baltimore, (Maryland)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Mother has told her to thank him for the food he sent her, also for the box of dates. (Sister) Teresa is Hebdomadary this week, for the first time, and she was delighted at the gift from him. It is a great honor to be Hebdomadary, the novices never hold the post until after their porfession. The Hebdomadary brings whatever alms are sent; she stands between God and the Community. She is the one to begin the Office, to say all the prayers of the Office, and to give the Asperges to the nuns after Compline. The Sisters enjoyed his visit. She thinks it will be grand when they are all united in Heaven. She does not think she is fervent, and wants to make up for her lack of fervor by being humble. She is offering up her Communion tomorrow for Phonie. She sends her love to Jennie.

Beatrix of the Holy Spirit, Mother: Carmel, Baltimore, Maryland
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

She sends him a check endorsed as he suggested, for they prefer to leave the money as invested by him. The onions arrived in good condition, less than a dozen soft ones, only three or four entirely spoiled. They still have sardines on hand, and she asks him not to send any more. She would suggest that instead of sending all dates, he send half figs next time. The potatoes were very poor this winter until a friend sent them a quantity of very nice ones just lately. They have enough for six or seven weeks. She has been very frank in her letter. The threat he made has had an effect. She sends him a picture of S(aint) Teresa. A lady had some photographs taken. S(ister)s Teresa and Gertrude are doing well and are well. He is always lovingly remembered and prayed for at Carmel. P.S. She suggests he send just a small quantity of smoked haddock. The picture of S(aint) Teresa which she is sending is a photograph of a painting on copper, done in 1716, and given to the Carmelite Community of Hoogetraet, Belgium. The founderess of (Carmel in Baltimore). the Pioress, M. Bernardina (Matthews) brought it to this country in 1790.

(McQuaid, Bishop Bernard Joseph: New York, New York)
 to Archbishop (James Gibbons: Baltimore, Maryland)

(McQuaid) read in the London Tablet the Acta of the Plenary Council, which was withheld from the Bishops. He felt aggrieved because of the use made of his name and tried to find out who was the Dublin correspondent who had possession of the Acta. It was Father ( ) O'Reilly, but a Catholic layman from Baltimore. Does (Gibbons) know of unfaithfulness near him, etc. (End of copy of the letter.) (McQuaid) asks (Corrigan) if he should follow up the affair. Should he charge ( ) McElhone with the authorship without saying what is the source of authority? No sheriff so far. The threat was only a bit of weak blackmailing. (McQuaid) believed the threat meant business and felt justified in calling on (Corrigan) to hinder a neighboring Bishop from shutting his eyes to an ecclesiastic who sells chalices and vestments to get money which he could get, if found to be justly due, by bringing his case before an ecclesiastical tribunal.

Bernard, Jules Louis: Gresy sur Tiere, Savoy, France
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): New York, New York

From Savoy, Bernard greets McMaster and not knowing the English language he will use his French in hopes that in New York it will be possible to find a translator. In answer to the questions Who he is? and What he is asking? Bernard answers that he is the vicaire of a small parish of 1600 inhabitants in Savoy and that he is asking for help. His parish is the prey of Freemasonry, a sect which is progressing with shameless damage to souls. Bernard reminds McMaster how powerless the laws of France have rendered the clergy in the last few years: its words are muzzled, its resources are spoiled, its influence paralyzed. The antagonistic Freemasonry, which is the government at this day, propagates the evil by its orators, its press, and its funds—by its immoral pressure. Men are drawn from the Church and dragged into taverns where two or three secret agents of the lodge quickly pervert them. The women likewise succumb to the contagion and temptations of all kinds are invented to distract them, give them frivolous tastes, and make them slowly forget their duty as Christians. Youth is lost. Lay schools, novitiates of impiety, draw from them the first elements of faith bestowed upon them by baptism. Books like Manuel Civique of Paul Bert, school masters like those of this parish who are Freemason instill in them doubt, distrust, and finally indifference and hatred toward religion. It does not end there. The Enemy of God and his agents take advantage of every opportunity in behalf of their perverse work. Local usage, small possessions, tastes, all are exploited to the advantage of Free Thought. The answer to this situation is to found good works, but that is impossible because the parish is without resources, the parishoners are poor farmers not property owners and the moderately rich are reduced to about three families having mediocre fortunes. The School of St. Joseph established this year absorbs all the resources and the subscription for them yielded only 420 francs, a considerable sum considering the few subscribers, but 1200 francs were needed (for four religious). The R.P. Chartreux accorded them 500 francs totaling 920 francs for the four sisters. But they have to find means of providing books and notebooks which their students will need. They have established a Conference of St. Vincent de Paul but with the scarcity of funds, they have little success, at least immediate, to hope for. Besides a work like that attracts especially those who are good Christian and distinctly not those who no longer practice their religion. And thus the calumny rises and the bad never fail to spread the lie that our society is entirely political and against the Republic. The simple, representing the greater number, permit themselves to be mislead, the weak dare not follow us. There is nothing for the youth. Since it is against them that the masonic action is directed, it is around them that protection must be centered. They need a Catholic school and a workshop. The school would demand the sum of 3,000 francs annually because it would have to meet with the rivalry of the lay schools because they offer courses said to be superior. They need 3,000, for the construction of a school, since the Government, hardly generous to those which it does not like, demands almost a palace. And when the children leave school they have yet to be preserved. It is for that reason that Bernard would like to have large workshops where able masters would teach them trades. Their trade would keep them occupied and they would no longer loaf; they would cease to be the prey of evil speakers and bad literature. These trades would hold them to the paternal household and form Paris where a third of our youth go to lose body and soul. Or if others should wish to leave, we could try to place them with good patrons. Bernard is at a loss how to solicit charity from people who find their purses emptied by taxes, and exiled, and deprived of appointments. The Catholics are at the end of their resources and their charity great and heroic is hardly inexhaustible. Bernard appeals to McMaster, a free man in a free American who can appreciate the misfortune of those whose liberty has been suppressed. France, who followed the American flag and in its shadow fought to make America free, is today no longer free. France who so generously gave to for the propagation of the faith will soon have nothing to give for the conservation of the same faith. Must religion perish? No, since our money earned by our sweat, confiscated by government apostates, is used to extricate that which is most precious to us, we extend our hand to the Christians of the New World, you of distant regions where charity beams, where gold flows in full stream like the waters of our immense rivers. Bernard asks McMaster if he would not consent to interest the readers of his excellent newspaper in behalf of Gresy. If the school is given an engraved stone will tell of its origin and Savoy will bless its sister, America. Bernard's intentions are to keep the property in his own name, or in whoever's name McMaster may designate, so that the government will not to be able to deprive them of it. Bernard also asks that the names of the writer of this letter and of the parish be not disclosed. Later, if successful, Bernard will comply with McMaster's wishes. Bernard asks that the reply be in French or Latin.

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

Mannix thinks girls between ten and fifteen would like her series of stories entitled "Little Portraits". She thought Maurice F(rancis) Egan's latest story in the Ave Maria uninteresting and coarse. Her translation of a child's story from the German is sent. Mannix criticizes the latest work that has been published on Blessed Margaret Mary's life. Has Hudson heard from Father (Francis) Weninger, S.J.? She thinks Hudson should have written directly to him, because when she called on Weninger, he said he could not see the good in spreading these things while the cause was undecided. Mannix is finding it difficult to write the sketch on Father (Charles) Driscol, S.J., because of the lack of information. As for their newspaper they hesitate to send it out because they lack the approbation of Archbishop (William) Elder but they have Father (John) Albrinck's permission. Even though Hudson is not anxious to have anything to do with (Mary) Meline, he will find her stories for girls are excellent.

(McMaster, James Alphonsus): (New York, New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Baltimore, Maryland)

McMaster has received John's letters and ought to have written him at Wilmington, (Delaware). He thinks Father Ben (J. Keiley) must have been a pleasant friend, and he was glad John went to Communion. He hopes that he will do so often. He misses John very much, but consoles himself with the thought the Sisters so often express, that it will not to be long before they will all be together, not to be separated again. Separation for a time is the lot of this world, and troubles must be faced bravely and gaily, with the thought that the end will come soon. He advises John to get thick soled shoes. The ($100.00) John sent brought tears to his face when he thought of the hard tramps it cost John to get it. He urges John to take care of himself, and not to forget his prayers. He feels sure John will always deserve his good and noble reputation.

(Tiernan), F(rances) C. Fisher: Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan is pleased to receive the many compliments about her story "A Child of Mary". She was astonished to see such a story as "Sampson's Revenge" in a recent issue of the Ave Maria. This article is a revival of anti-slavery Slanders, which are absurd, and should not have found a place in the Ave Maria.

 to J(ohn Alphonsus McMaster): Wash(ington) D.C.

John's second $100.00 arrived this morning, and Gallagher hopes John will be able to do as well all around the route. He mailed the cash book to Washington, and asks if John received the letter he sent to Frederick, (Maryland). (Maurice Francis) Egan returned from Phila(delphia) today; his family is well, but Fitzpatrick's little daughter, Gertrude died, and will be buried tomorrow. The weather is miserable, wet, and glum. Mrs. Ellen M. Keiley, Richmond, Va., has remitted $3.00 and should be credited. P.S. Archbishop (James) Gibbons has been elevated to the Cardinalate. Gallagher lists three subscribers who may be of use to John in the way of passes. He encloses a letter for John. John's father will write tonight.

(McMaster, James Alphonsus): New York, (New York)
 to (John Alphonsus McMaster): (Washington, D.C.)

McMaster does not know whether John received his letter to Baltimore or whether he will receive this letter, although he telegraphed to John that he would write. He wishes John would use the telegraph wires more freely, telling if he is well and where a letter may catch him. McMaster misses John very much, and goes to John's room daily, thinking of where he may be and what hardships he may be suffering. The sisters are so well housed that they give McMaster little solicitude. He has had reason to have great confidence in John, but perseverance in what is good is a grace in itself. (Life) will soon be over, and he tells John to rejoice in his youth, to be cheerful and merry, and to have an anchor. McMaster knows John will have an anchor, and urges him to let his soul dip down to it every day, on all occasions, in the river of life. John should not fail to say his beads, and should try to attend Holy Mass sometimes other than on days of obligation.

He asks if the complaint of Vemable and Heyman, (Importers of Wines and Liquors, New York) is true, and if so, he wonders why McMaster did not give them a chance to justify themselves, a favor which is generally granted Catholics in Protestant papers. (He encloses a copy of the Venable and Heyman statement.)

Walburga, S.H.C.J., (Mother) M(ary): Sharon Hill, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

She asks God to reward him for his goodness, and informs him that the two sisters are leaving (February) 22, but she is not leaving until later, thus lessening the expense. She will order the photographs of (Sister) Saint John. She encloses two of them now. Last week they received a letter from S(iste)r Gertrude. The remainder of the Drexel legacy was paid, and proved more than the previous payments. Monday, (February) 13 is Mr. Drexel's anniversary. P.S. Mr. Milligen told her that they could get half-fares from Phila(delphia) to Cheyenne, so unless McMaster can get a pass he need not other.

Donnelly, Eleanor C.: Phil(adelphi)a, (Pennsylvania)
 to Ja(me)s (Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

The enclosed sonnet (no enclosure) was intended for (George W.) Child's own private pleasure but in view of (Francis Anthony) Drexel's first anniversary on February 15 it seemed well to suggest its publication. Therefore Donnelly asked Childs for permission to retain the dedication to himself. Donnelly encloses Child's reply. McMaster is to send a copy to Childs and to the Misses Drexel. She addresses McMaster not being sure whether (Maurice Francis) Egan is at home.

Hudson, C.S.C., Father Daniel E.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to Eliza (Allen) Starr: (Chicago, Illinois)

Hudson cannot understand why his refusal of Mr. (B.) Durward's article should excite Starr. It is the right of the editor to decline what he might consider unavailable to his columns. Hudson rejected her ballad because he felt it was too long to appear in the Ave Maria. He resents Starr's contesting his rights as to what should appear in the Ave Maria and he believes he was courteous in explaining his reasons for rejecting the poem. (Charles Warren) Stoddard and others, who know Hudson's method of dealing with writers tell him that he takes too much trouble and he begins to share their opinion. A short article, and editorial on the Tabernacle Society would be effective.

(McMaster) D.C. (Sister) Gertrude: (Baltimore, Maryland)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

She had not heard from him, except for the haddock he sent, until that morning when his letter arrived. She urges him to wait until the Annunciation to make the dedication to the Blessed Lady. Mother suggests that he send no more fish until she lets him know. The Carmelite Father in Belgium was told of McMaster's intention of sending the Freeman to him and Mother said she would send McMaster the address again, in case he had mislaid it. S(ister) Teresa wants all the pictures of Saint Raphael, who, she says, cured her in the fall and wants to spread devotion to him as well as show her gratitude. S(iste)r Aloysius-Minnie McComb has left the Convent. A vocation such as theirs is difficult.

Ryder, E(liot) P.: S(ain)t Louis, (Missouri)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Proofs reached Ryder Thursday and due to a severe attack of fever he was unable to read them and return them by Monday. He got three rakings for that unfortunate article in the (Catholic) World. Ryder knows Hudson has confidence in him, but suggests Hudson made a mistake in exposing a spirit of meanness, which is not supposed to exist at Notre Dame. To say that Ryder had a motive in omitting Father (Thomas) Walsh's name is idiocy. Ryder will be unable to make a journey for months, but Hudson's suggestion that they meet in Chicago is a good one. Weakness caused him to stop writing Saturday, and he has not felt well enough to finish writing this letter until today, Monday the 15th. Ryder criticizes Hudson's editing of his article. Professor (Joseph) Lyons must live in an atmosphere of delusion. Does Hudson think he reads the (Scholastic) Annual, for last year's issue was full of mistakes. Ryder is glad that Hudson agrees with him about Miss (Eleanor) D(onnelly's) "Out of Sweet Solitude" published by Lippincott. He submits an extract from "Cremore" for the Ave Maria.

Gibbons, Archbishop James: Baltimore, (Maryland)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

The news cabled his Grace of New York (Archbishop Michael Augustine Corrigan) leaves no doubt regarding the unmerited honor the Pope means to confer upon Gibbons. It appears that he should have a seal if he is a member of the Sacred College. He would be indebted if Seton would formulate some design and have it prepared at Gibbons' expense. He leaves the subject and motto to Seton and asks that Seton visit him either before or after its execution. Gibbons read Seton's essay on the Cardinalate.

Dorsey thanks Hudson for the Ave Maria series, all of which she gave Father (Stephen) Kelly, S.J. He was delighted to get Father Zahm's "What the Church has done for Science" and thinks Father Sorin a remarkable man. She received the copy of Stoddard's "Lepers of Molokai".

The two creditors who were abusive in their attacks on Archbishop (John Baptist) Purcell instigated the proceedings against her husband. She was sorry to hear that Hudson is ill.

Hearing that Brownson is the son of the late Orestes. A. Brownson, Goddard addresses him through (Thorndike) Nourse to ask the full name of his grandfather Brownson, who he believes was a resident of Norwich some time before 1800. Elijah Brownson came to Norwich among the earliest settlers before 1780, and among his children were two sons, Samuel Brownson and Elihu Brownson, who seem to have left Norwich very early, perhaps for Stockbridge, Rochester, or one of the newer towns back from the Connecticut River. One of these may have been Brownson's grandfather. Goddard is preparing a brief history of Norwich and hopes to receive any information Brownson can give him.

Regarding John's inquiries about Mr. Lepley and his bookstore, Gallagher explains that their experience with sending copies of the Freeman to booksellers has been unhappy, and they have discontinued the practice because it proved a dead loss. However, if John desires to have papers sent to Mr. Lepley, he should let Gallagher know, and he will do it. (Maurice Francis) Egan has been sick but is all right again. John's father is well, and this moment is talking to his old friend, Hon. Jack Montgomery. The weather is good now. Gallagher hopes John finds collections good.

Smith, David Cady: Schenectady, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): New York, (New York)

Smith informs McMaster that Eliza Peek, who died in 1878, by the tenth clause of her will, left to the Rev(erend) Father Maigher, formerly of the Society of Jesus, the sum of $200. The will was admitted to probate at Poughkeepsie (?) Smith was the sole executor. When he came to pay the legacy, he could not ascertain the residence of Father Maigher, but he finally discovered through Vicar General (Monsignor William) Quinn that when the yellow fever epidemic broke out in Memphis (Tennessee), Father Maigher volunteered to go there to minister to the stricken, and fell victim to the disease himself. At the time of Mrs. Peek's death he was still alive. Under the circumstances, the Surrogate ordered Smith to pay the amount into the State Treasury, which he did on January 21, 1884, depositing $258,55 for the benefit of those entitled to it by reason of being representatives of Father Maigher. He knows of no relatives the priest may have. He was said to have come to New York from France. Smith wishes McMaster to put some notice in his paper which may lead to the discovery of the heirs. He would like a copy of the paper in which the notice is printed. But he will have to print the notice gratuitously, since Smith has no money to pay for the notice.

(McMaster, D.C.), Sister Gertrude: Baltimore, Maryland
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

She has been thinking of him before God and praying for him. He is, as he says, truly a happy man, for he renews his sacrifice daily, generously. She tells him not to be so sad and anxious, thinking so much of doing penance; rather, he should learn to love God in little things. Little outward things with great inward love is the secret of the holiness of many of the saints. But she does not wish to preach to him. She will be satisfied if she can make him happy. He should be at peace—his learning can draw people to God, while a harsh creed may frighten them away. And he should not think himself too proud to write, his daughters. Mother does not have time to write, but sends her love. P.S. She has just received his letter and thanks him for all his beautiful thoughts. He should contemplate the Infinite Mercy of God, not dwell on his own misery.

Valentine, Louis F.: Honolulu, Hawailan Islands
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Valentine offers to writer for the Freeman's Journal sole articles from abroad. He is contemplating a round-the-world tour and would devote part of his time to writing articles if (McMaster) would wish him to. In former days he was well known in New York City as a successful writer and correspondent, and had business relations with many publishers, as well as with the parties he names in the enclosed circular. (Enclosures not included). In 1872 health demanded that he retire to a warmer climate, so he spent some years traveling in the Southwestern U(nited) S(tates), and finally reached the islands. He has been on the staff of the Saturday Press, and now is proprietor and manager of the Daily Honolulu Press, of which he mails several copies. He also mails a brief description of a trip made by him to the Kilauea Volcano, but the article was done for thw Wilder Steamship Co(mpany) and does not contain his best writing. If writing for (McMaster) he would use a more attractive style. His forte is historical and descriptive writing. He has sufficient artistic and musical talent, and can select suitable views to illustrate the text. He acquired diplomatic knowledge while secretary to Edmund J. Davis, Governor of Texas. He will sent (McMaster) a sample article without cost if (McMaster) wishes, and asks (McMaster) to tell him how frequently he should write and what the compensation shall be.

The old Sharon children are getting a Tabernacle lamp for Mother's feast, and their names will be engraved on it. She wonders if he would like to give something. Mother Mary St. John did not want her to ask him, but she knows he will say so if it is inconvenient. She is expecting him for a visit. Gertrude has been professed a month. (Sister) Saint John had a letter from her a week or two ago. P.S. If he writes, he should not refer to the lamp.

They are getting the letters written them a year ago when their father died bound into a volume. McMaster is reckoned among their warmest friends—and would have have been even though they had not become personally acquainted with him. His sisters and Miss Cassidy send regards.

Early case except a letter from Bishop (Timothy) O'Mahoney denying having intimated that Early had right on his side and that (McQuaid) ought to compromise with him. Some attempt was made to frighten (McQuaid) into some concession to Early. (McQuaid) read (Ella B.) Edes' letter to (Corrigan). Baltimore is creaking its new boots loudly. It is Cardinal (James) Gibbons, "Cardinal Archbishop" and all the changes. (McQuaid) would keep away from the ceremony of next week except to back up (Corrigan). The largest consolation is that it is only "hope deferred."

She shall probably have a good many more birthdays. The soap and psalm-books he sent have arrived. The Reverend Mother has many extra cares and anxieties, so Gertrude lets McMaster know of their arrival. She hopes to see him soon. S(iste)r Teresa sends him the encloses picture of the Venerable Anne of Jesus— a very old picture which she is sure he will like. She will look for him on Friday unless he tells them differently. P.S. She wrote Pho last week and sent the letter as McMaster directed. McMaster's telegram arrived. She asks him again to go to the ceremony, since he knows Archbishop Corrigan and has always held him to be a good and fervent man. She wants him to attend the ceremony as a birthday gift to her.

Leimgruber C. (S.S.)R., M.: Lake View, Ill(inois)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

He encloses $3 for the Freeman, and thanks McMaster for all the good he is doing for the Church. The Catholic press is a power, reaching farther than the voices of bishops or priests. Well-meaning Protestants read the Freeman, and Catholic doctrine is implanted in their hearts. All readers of the Freeman will agree that it is one of the foremost forces in disseminating Catholic doctirne. He thanks him once more for his noble work, and prays that the Freeman may find its way into thousands of Catholic homes.

He is well and expects to get along all right.

(Gallagher), John (J.): New York, (New York)
 to J(ohn Alphonsus McMaster): Charleston, S.C.

John's letter and $70.00 have been received. His clothes, which he probably has by now, were sent by the Adams Ex(press) Co(mpany) to Mr. Ja(me)s Cantwell. The new lists and bills will be mailed next Thursday when they are ready. Gallagher thinks John will strike it rich in Charleston and have at least two weeks work. There is no subscriber in Columbia, S.C., but in Beaufort, S.C., a priest thinks that 15 or 20 new subscribers can be raised. There is a terrible blizzard (in New York), but all the folks, including John's father, who is going to Balt(im)o(re) on Monday, are well.

(McMaster, James Alphonsus): (New York, New York)
 to (John) Alphons(us McMaster): (Charleston, South Carolina)

McMaster is well in health, and does not get used to doing without John. John's room looks deserted, and McMaster visits it every day. John is to take care of himself, and not to forget that this is St. Joseph's month. McMaster had planned to be in Baltimore for Sister Gertrude (McMaster, D.C.'s) birthday, March 4, (1886), but postponed his visit because on that day Archbishop (Michael Corrigan) is to receive the Pallium. John is asked to give regards to Mr. (James) Cantwell.

(McQuaid), Bishop B(ernard Joseph): Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York New York)

(Corrigan) could not do otherwise in the Syracuse matter. The excuse given for the delay is feigned. All the returns might have been gathered since he was notified of the order of Rome. The delay is to enable him to get to Rome as soon as the letter providing for the division and naming the candidates gets there. (McQuaid) is pleased with Bishop (Edgar P.) Wadhams' suggestion of Father (James S. M.) Lynch of Utica. They can probably secure his appointment if they can get him on the list. (McQuaid) will give no consent to a scandalous division, such as of Rochester and Buffalo. (Corrigan) will have to see to rectification of boundary lines. (McQuaid) will go to New York for the Pallium ceremony. The limited express makes travelling easy. Postponement of the Consistory was a happy thought. (McQuaid) feels New York will not get a get-back, even if two have to be created. The Baltimore Mirror this week had not a word about Cardinal (James) Gibbons, while last week it was full. Archbishop (William Henry) Elder is likely to have a stormy time near the coast.

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