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

(Sister) Saint John tells him that Mother thanks him for the wine and lemons, and (Sister) Saint John joins her in thanking him, although she feels almost like scolding him for sending the lemons, but supposes there is no use. She hopes he enjoyed his visits to Sharon Hill and Baltimore. The Annunciation is not a long way off. She looks forward to the day, a few years away when there will be no more loneliness for McMaster. P.S. She will see about the little kegs being sent.

(McMaster) S.H.C.J. (Sister) Saint John: Sharon Hill, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Sister Gertrude (McMaster) of the Heart of Jesus, D.C.): (Baltimore, Maryland)

She wishes (Sister Gertrude) a very happy birthday, and will offer tomorrow's Holy Communion for her. Her father's, Helen's and (Sister Gertrude's) birthdays are on Thursdays. She thinks often of Helen and her, but they will be a last time together in Eternity. She is not tired of life, it is a time to learn to love God better and work for souls. The thought of eternity strengthens endurance. She wishes she had time to copy out F(ather) Faber's verses on "Desire of Good". Lent will begin soon, and she has been thinking of the countless opportunities for doing penance there are. She thanks (Sister Gertrude) for F. De la Columbiere's "Act of Confidence", and thinks God loves to be told how much He is trusted. She said goodbye last week to Sisters M(ary) Perpetua and Eligins, who are leaving for Cheyenne (Wyoming). Through her noviceship, all the froth went from S(ister) M(ary) Perpetua. Waseca (Illinois) will probably not be opened before September, (1886). The General wrote to S(iste)r M(ary) Gonzaga on her twenty-first birthday. They have forty-six children, six new since Christmas (She gives their names.) She has received letters and news from old friends. She reminds (Sister Gertrude) to remember Mother Superior's intentions. She asks for a passage from the writings of S(ain)t Teresa, and asks her also to be good to (Sister) Teresa (McMaster). She looks forward to their meeting (in Heaven), but meanwhile they can meet in the Sacred Heart. She gives her love to the Mother Piroress and the other sisters. They had the gingercakes Saturday afternoon, and some sisters found them pretty hot, since their gingercakes are cakes with out ginger. P.S. She is sending a copy of "St. Gertrude's Guest."

1886 Mar. 2
Mallet, Edmond: (Washington, D.C.)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

In a letter marked Private and Confidential, Mallet informs McMaster that he is sending the draft of an application as he promised. He is sending it in draft and substance. He wants McMaster's views on it after McMaster has carefully examined it. He is going into the thing with misgivings, for he knows not one influential person who can push the case along or secure him an audience with the president, and without these the case will simply be pigeonholed, as was his application for the secretaryship of New Mexico, which he encloses for McMaster's perusal. He thinks that after the papers are prepared, the proper thing is to secure endorsements from persons having influence with the President and Cabinet officers. Some may simply write recommendations on the application itself, while others may give letters or testimonials to file with it. The character of these endorsements will probably decide the fate of the case. Someone, other than Mallet, must secure an approved reference from the President to Secretary of the Interior Lamar. Then someone must watch the case until the appointment is made. Mallet does not know what influential men in New York might help him. Perhaps John Kelly and Senator Kernan would. In Washington, if Representative Collins and Senator Kenna (of West Virginia) could be reached by some one of influence they would be good to act. Mallet is not a politician, he is poor, he has no rich relatives. Men in such a condition get nothing from the Government. If it were not for McMaster's kindness he would not act at all. Yet, having acted, he shall do his duty. He can get an abundance of French Canadian support. If McMaster thinks this would help him, Mallet suggests that McMaster confer with Abbe' (Fred) Tetreau, of the Canadian Church. Mallet's position is becoming intolerable, and soon his self respect must cause him to abandon it. The letters he is sending McMaster, which are confidential and which he wants returned to him indicate the condition of affairs. If McMaster, after examining the whole matter, thinks it had better be abandoned, Mallet wants him to say so frankly. But he thinks that the place is obtainable if the proper persons can be found to second their efforts. There are now no Catholic Inspectors. Almost any of the bishops could secure one for the asking at a personal interview with the President. But he presumes none of them would ask.

1886 Mar. 2
Toohey, C.S.C., Father J(ohn) M.: Valparaiso, Ind(iana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Toohey was unable to find the mislaid manuscript of Garcia Moreno, before leaving Notre Dame to fill in for for Father (Michael) O'Reilly at Valparaiso. He will finish Dante soon and has returned Longfellow's translation to (James Edwards) and Luigi Gregori's Italian copy. Can Hudson get someone to examine Kenelm Henry Digby's "Mores Catholici" to determine if this German is a translation from his work? Digby speaks of Dante's devotion to Mary and Toohey wonders if the writer in Der Katholik merely translated. The article of Dante if not from Digby might be credited to Edward Vogt in Der Katholik. The article on Blessed Berchmans' prayer to Our Lady is in a copy of Diario Mariano. Perhaps Dr. Howley would put it in English.

Churchill, H(arriet) B.: (Mattapan, Massachusetts)

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

John's letter and $97.88 has been received. John gets 15% com(mission) on it, and he is asked to distinguish between collections made by himself on which he gets 25% and those made by (James) Cantwell, on which he received 15%. Gallagher is sending today, in care of Cantwell, new lists and bills that will take John as far as N(ew) Orl(eans). There are also two bill-books, one for John and one for Cantwell. John is asked to say what he thinks of visiting Beaufort, S.C. The folks are all well (in New York). John's father, who leaves for Balt(im)o(re) tomorrow, is attending the services in the Cathedral at which Archbishop (Michael Corrigan receives the Pallium. (Maurice Francis) Egan is there, too. Joe and Jack (Keiley drop in frequently and ask for John. Gallagher is searching for new offices, the place he had his eye on being unsafe for occupation.

Monroe, A.L.: Galveston, Texas
 to J(ames) A(lphonsus) McMaster: New York, (New York)

Although unknown to McMaster, Monroe would ask a favor of McMaster, and reminds McMaster of his friendship for Monroe's brother, Col(onel) James Monroe, who was killed in the Civil War, at Harpers Ferry, in 1861. Monroe is now 68 years old and without health or employment. He has written about six thousand lines of poetry, and asks McMaster to tell him the best way of getting them published, and to introduce him to some publishers or to some literary society with influence. There is poetry on many subjects, and numerous pieces (in prose). If he could get the work published he is sure it would pay him well, in Texas alone, for more than all the outlay.

Reily, John T.: Martinsburg, W(est) V(irgini)a
 to Richard H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

Clarke's books have been mailed from Reily and Evans publishers. Reily has only a few choice publications and his library possessions are limited. Raised among strangers and of limited education, he has not been able to get more than his living. There were thousands of old books and pamphlets at Conewaga, (Pennsylvania)—6 copies of Gallitzin's Def(ence) of Catholic Principles and other duplicates — but they never would give him a scrap. They are now kept on an attic of an old kitchen, and some day the whole treasure will be consumed, but none will ever be given away.

Gartland) when he was at St. John's and went to Savannah, Georgia with him, but was not there when he died. A severe storm unroofed the house. Bishop(Edward) Barron had to be carried out. Gartland administered the rights of the church to Barron, and died within a few days of Barron. They have none of his belongings.

Butler, Father Theobald Walter: New Orleans, (Louisiana)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The writer of the article on the miraculous cure of Mary Wilson which appeared in the Ave Maria used the expression mental apparition, which has been interpreted as meaning an apparition, that was not real but only imaginary. If the writer attached no such meaning to the expression it would be beneficial to the cause of the canonization of (John) Berchmans.

1886 Mar. 4,
Cassidy, M.S.: (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Cassidy wonders why McMaster does not come to visit them, for she did not reply to McMaster's letter because he expected to see McMaster and verbally answer his questions. McMaster can say what he wishes about the payment of the legacies, but the transfer of the remains had better be kept out of the papers, as it was in Philadelphia, partly through the influence of Mr. (George W.) Childs. There were rumors of an attempt on the grave at S(ain)t Mary's, and the transfer was hurried. Mr. S.J.D(rexel) thinks the matter should have little attention, so Cassidy thinks McMaster had better not mention it. Kate (Drexel) was anxious to speak with McMaster concerning Indian matters, which are in great difficulty, for the school contracts have been granted and are still in the possession of Father (Theodore) Stephan's, but no teachers can be obtained from any religious order. Kate had tried the Benedictines, Bishop (James) O'Connor (of Omaha, Nebraska), the Jesuits, and F(athe)r Stephen everyone else, but without success. Cassidy asks McMaster to suggest something, for soon the contracts will pass out of their control. Kate wants to thank him for a favor of last November, and Cassidy thanks him for praising his children. He asks if McMaster has seen Harry Wasls, and urges him once more to come, since after Easter they are moving to St. Michel. She recieved a letter from S(iste)r Gertrude.

In reply of Clarke's April 22 request for "pastoral letters, addresses of the Bishops of Chicago from the time of Bishop (William) Quarter," Murray says if any such documents existed before the Great Fire, they did not survive. No documents of any great length have been issued by either Bishop (Thomas) Foley or the present Archbishop (Patrick Feehan).

T(oohey), Father J(ohn) M.: (Valparaiso, Indiana)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Toohey sends part of his article on Dante. Father (William) Corby, C.S.C. has only one mission and Toohey supposes he must strike out after this job is finished. After the Chapter, Corby will do big things to keep his missionary corps together, but Toohey feels inclined to be counted out.

Wakeham, S.S., Father Richard K.: Ellicott City, M(arylan)d
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's reply to Wakeham's letter of February 23rd confirms his impression that Hudson was not the author of the book notice to which Wakeham called his attention. Yet, Hudson, did make himself a party to it by toning down the condemnation, which is regrettable.

(18)86 Mar. 5
Edes, Ella B.: Rome, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson must not feel at all obliged to accept any article Edes sends. Edes wants numbers of the Ave Maria for Father ( ) Armellein, S.J., who is her confessor. Edes sent Hudson the Gerarchia for 1886. She stood over M(onsi)g(no)r Ciccolini and made him correct all the errors she could. Edes sent, in a bundle of letters to (Eliza Allen) Starr, a photo of St. Veronica. She thinks (Anna Hanson Dorsey's) early tales surpass her later ones. Edes does not admire "Palms"; she calls attention to the terrible Italian in it. Does not Hudson have a Professor (Luigi) Gregori with him? The Tablet makes a muddle of matters. The Rector of the English College recently took Edes to task for a mistake in that paper. She took not the slightest notice of a criticism by (Ulysses) Mori. M(onsi)g(no)r (Eugene) O'Callaghan advised Edes to be chary of foreign words. Edes just received a letter from Starr in which she is anxious to receive a copy of "The Nativity". What a muddle Archbishop (James Gibbons) has made of the telegram about the cardinal's hat for Baltimore. "The Abbe" (James Alphonsus MacMaster?) would never have so mistaken matters. The cable from Rome to the Catholic Mirror was a forgery. Count Edward Soderini is in a dreadful way over it. Edes is curious to see if the "Cracky Mirror" will get out of it. (Archbishop Michael Augustine Corrigan) had not received the Lenten Indult Jan. 23. A telegram was sent to Baltimore, but he forgot to keep a memorandum of his request.

1886 Mar. 6,
Coonery, A.M.: Arlington, K(entuck)y
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Coonery (?) is sorry that the article on the Knights of Labor in the (March 6, 1886) Freeman's Journal was published at all. He does not see how O.G. Conway can say the principles of the K of L do not conflict with Christian teachings, for he says anyone who has read the principles can see at once that the K. of L. is atheistic, anti-Christian, socialistic, revolutionary, and so on. He hopes McMaster will contradict the K. of L. immediately, and use all his influence to restrict them by law besides. Coonery (?) himself knows several people who had to give up their business because they were boycotted when their opinions differed from that of the K. of L., consequently he feels that, if all are to be subject to threats and boycotts, the sooner all get out of this country, the better. Of late several swindling and false advertisements have appeared in the Freeman's Journal. For instance, that of Hallets and Co(mpany), for the purpose of spreading infidel and trashy papers and periodicals, was a swindle, as was that of Faschias. He asks that his name be not used in connection with these things. (Included are two clippings relating to the Knights of Labor—the source and date of neither being given.)

Montgomery, Z(ach): Washington, D.C.
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

Montgomery tells McMaster that if he concurs in the general opinion that Senator Ingall's attack on Montgomery of March 2 (1886) was an outburst of Anti-Catholic bigotry directed against all Catholics, and McMaster so believing, will publish a strong article saying that thinking Catholics so regard the matter, he would aid in turning the tide against the bigots and securing Montgomery's confirmation. Montgomery regards the office of slight consequence in comparison with the work of repelling the attack. If McMaster does write on the matter, Montgomery would like a half dozen copies of the paper to distribute among the Senators to show the Catholic opinion on the matter. He is writing this letter at the request of one Catholic Senator who thinks an article from McMaster would do much good.

He should be pleased to further the good work Edwards has undertaken by the establishment of Memorial Hall, but they have no souvenirs. Mme ( ) Duchesne was in correspondence with the bishops of St. Louis, but the letters have not been found. He is grateful for the offer of beads blessed by the Crosiers of Belgium, but they have a large supply. He wishes to procure photographs of Bishops (Louis William) Dubourg and (Joseph) Rosati.

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

Ryder has been given the impression that because of his accidental omission of Father (Thomas) Walsh, C.S.C. from his recent article, he is no longer welcome at Notre Dame, he looks forward to meeting Hudson in Chicago, then he can explain. He criticizes Professor Joseph Lyons for his constant agreement with Hudson on literary matters. Hudson's appreciaton of Ryder's "Louisiana Forest" surprised him and his only reason for sending it was to please Father (Adrian) Rouquette. Ryder thanks Hudson for the copy of "Troubled Heart" and the clock, which reminded him of Hudson's generosity. The doctor tells him that with the advent of warm weather, Ryder will be physically more comfortable.

Carroll, Jeannie: Washington, (District of Columbia)
 to (Richard Henry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

Carroll was much pained to find that Clarke did not know of the death of their sister Anne. She died on Dec. 20, 1882 and saintly sister Mrs. Fitzhugh, Dec. 4, 1883. She and her sister Rebecca are lonely, the only two left of a large family. She asks if Clarke had heard that Duddington, their old home, is no longer in the family. Waggaman advised them to sell and it gave them terrible grief. They have none of the papers or pamphlets, that Clarke asks for. They destroyed much rubbish, old letters and bills, but nothing of interest to outsiders. Her sisters probably answered similar requests and gave many pamphlets away. They are in possession of a portrait of Washington by Stuart which they would gladly sell to some art gallery. It is wonderfully preserved and (George P.) Healy asked to make a copy of it for Louis Phillippe. If Clarke could find a buyer, everyone would be greatly pleased. They have been sorely tried.

Cornell Daily Sun: Ithaca, N(ew) Y(ork)

Letter to the editors from "A Lover of Justice"; Since he is a graduate of a Catholic college, he wishes to state that such colleges do not stunt the intellect of the students. The statement that the Jesuits delight in reading bookson the Index is absolutely untrue. He is a Westerner himself, and he heartily deprecates the fact that such sentiments should come from way out in San Francisco. A note written on the paper by Charles F. Porter states: "Even the influence of 'Infidel Cornell' has failed to quench within me the teachings of my beloved Alma Mater. God bless dear old Notre Dame! I fight for her every day, and pray for her every night. She is worth a million Harvards."

No letter from Rome yet. (Ella B.) E(des) wrote on Jan. 25 that it was decided to submit a dilemma to (Father James S.) O'Sullivan, either to withdraw his case from before the civil courts or to be suspended. (McQuaid) is not justified in proceeding in the case without receiving an official answer. Bishop (Richard Gilmour) of Cleveland asked (McQuaid) when (McQuaid) was going there. (McQuaid) answered that he and Bishop (William George McCloskey) of Louisville would go to Cleveland immediately after March 17. Father (W.A.) McDonald did not accept the Rectorship of the Cathedral because of his health. Father (James P.) Kiernan takes the charge. He is a capable, even a remarkable young man. (McQuaid) is confident of disposing of the Young Men's building before long. Two parties with large means are looking after it.

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

Poor Seton Hall gets another scorching which will ruin the Collegiate department. The news from Rome announcing the promotion of Quebec and Baltimore (Archbishop James Gibbons) comes in good time to cover the former mistake. (McQuaid) does not agree that the Jubilee fast cannot be kept on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday in Lent. Bishop (John Loughlin) of Brooklyn withdraws all abstinence days of Lent from the catalogue of days on which the Jubilee fast can be kept. He will have to exclude all other fast days in the year. (McQuaid) thinks he is wrong. They propose to do their Jubilee fast on Friday and Saturday of this week.

(McQuaid, Bernard J., Bishop of): Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Bishop (Edgar P. Wadhams: Ogdensburg, New York)

(McQuaid) thanks (Wadhams) for Father (John Talbot) Smith's history of the diocese of Ogdensburg. He might have given first place to the Bishop and the second to the secretary, but the preference may have been to beauty and to rank. (McQuaid) has found the book exceedingly interesting. He did not know that Father Patrick Kelly, the first resident priest of Rochester, went to (Wadham)'s neighborhood after leaving Rochester. He built the first church in Rochester in 1821, having come the year before. He left in 1823. (McQuaid) was under the impression that he went from there to Michigan where he died in 1856. Rev. Mr. Foley was in Rochester in 1834-5 and tried to establish St. Mary's church but failed. (McQuaid) is not willing to admit that Bishop (John) Connolly visited Northern New York. Nor did he ever hear that Father John Hughes accompanied Bishop (John) Dubois on a missionary tour. They were not friendly. Hughes was not his choice for coadjutor and Hughes was too busy as pastor in Philadelphia to leave for a tour through the wilderness of New York. Of course the defects of priests are passed over with charity, but the people were not always to blame for parochial squabbles as appears in Smith. The book makes an excellent basis for a complex record of those early days. More justice might be done to the pioneers of the faith. Many of the laity did excellent work before the advent of the priest.

Montgomery, Z(ach): Washington, D.C.

In his editorial on the "Ingall's attack", McMaster says that Montgomery (opinions) on the spiritual influence of the railroad and the telegraph have little to do with his fitness for discharging his duties. Montgomery fears that even McMaster has been led to give credit to the false charges made against him in the anonymous paper which Senator Ingalls quoted, accordingly he enclosed a paper which disproves the anonymous statement. Confidential P.S. He suggests McMaster publish his statement to notify his readers of the falsity of the charge. (The enclosure— A printed statement of 2 pages by those who heard the address Montgomery delivered July 6, 1873, attests that it was falsely quoted in the anonymous pamphlet.)

She urges McMaster to write his Act of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin and sign it the day of the Annunciation, (March) 25. She hopes McMaster will like the book on the Divine Office and give it a favorable notice, for the pen is a powerful weapon, and in his hands has a blessed mission. The whole convent writes with her and S(iste)r Teresa in sending love. P.S. His letter came, and the books he sent. She is sorry that she cannot give him the family name of the Carmelite who wrote the Month of St. Joseph. Her name in Religion is Mere Marie de la Conception.

Montgomery, Z(ach): Washington, D.C.
 to (James Alphonsus) McMaster: (New York, New York)

McMaster's note explained what Montgomery had already surmised. He agrees with McMaster that in the matter of the opposition of the anti-Catholic bigots, the best thing is delay. But there is another source of opposition—the railroad corporations whom he has had to combat. He has learned that Senator Ingalls used certain isolated extracts from an opinion he prepared in September (1885) in a case where a railroad company was trying to oust from their property some Choctaw Indians. He seemed to want to produce the impression that Montgomery was asserting authority for the Secretary of the Interior to disregard and override the laws of Congress. On learning this, Montgomery had had copies of the opinion printed and sent to the Senators, so that they could see for themselves just what the decision was. He sends McMaster one of the copies and also a clipping from the leading California Democratic paper, which he believes has presented his case correctly. He does this so that McMaster may see the position of the enemy forces. The two Senators who accompanied the remains of the late Senator Miller to California; though one, J.P. Jones of Nevada, is a Republican, are on his side in the fight. Jones has been a warm personal friend for twenty-five years and has volunteered to express himself strongly in Montgomery's favor. Montgomery suggests that if McMaster finds it convenient to be in Washington next week, he can probably wield some controlling influence with Senator Edmonds, and he might send a note to him now, requesting a suspension of action by the committee on Montgomery's case, until he can see Edmonds. In any case, however, Montgomery will be content to trust all to God, who may have another and more important job for him than the one assigned him by Mr. Cleveland, and, whatever it may be, he will do it to the best of his ability.

The enclosures: (1) The front page of the Daily Examiner of San Francisco, Saturday Morning, March 6, 1886, containing an article on "Why Hon, Zach Montgomery is Opposed", under the dateline, "Washington, Mar. 5, and another article on "The Real Reason Why That Capable Officer (Hon. Zach Montgomery) is Opposed", under a similar deteline. (2) A pamphlet of twenty-two pages—"The Choctaw Indians and the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Ry.

Armstrong can charge 7 or 8. Gallagher will try it for a year, because it would not pay to return unsold papers oftener, and even if they are returned only once a year, it hardly pays (to send papers to a dealer). They lose money on $2.00 subs(criptions) when they pay an agent 25% com(mission) for collecting, and it is only on $3.00 subs(criptions) and advertisements that profit is made.

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

Fortunately, (McQuaid) kept the original of the questions to be propounded to the A(ncient) O(rder of) H(ibernians). The Council declined to act in the matter, relegating the question to a committee composed of the Archbishops of the country. It is a reserved privilege of the Archbishops as a body to examine and decide the lawfulness of the A.O.H. United action of the Archbishops would be a rule for the whole country. The council chose to bury the business. Archbishop (Patrick John Ryan) of Philadelphia partially reversed the action of his predecessor, but this does not bind any one else. Archbishops (John J.) Hughes and (John) McCloskey disapproved of the order. The order is affiliated with a foreign secret order. (Corrigan) is not obliged to move as the matter was relegated to the whole body of Archbishops. (McQuaid) wrote to Father (James H.) Corrigan in relation to Seton Hall (College) declining to express opinion on its future. (McQuaid) hopes Bishop (William) McCloskey of Louisville will not shorten his visit to New York. (McQuaid) expects him next Saturday. (McQuaid) is afraid that the Oregon's mail is lost. So far nothing from Rome. Father (Terence J.) Early was in town last week and (McQuaid) feels he will give way to his feelings of hatred of (McQuaid) by vilification and abuse.

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

What (Corringan) initiated is what the Baltimore Council might have settled promptly had its action not been hindered by the speech of Archbishop (Patrick A. Feehan). The speech was a prepared one to block condemnation of the Hibernians. The questions were meant as a protection to the Council. The answers in (McQuaid)'s judgment were satisfactory. (Corrigan) would do well to submit them to Bishop (Richard) Gilmour, who might advise something to widen the breach between the two parties. (Corrigan) should send copies to all the Archbishops requesting their opinions. The history of the break at Cleveland should be given in the document to show the difference between the two branches of the Society. While exclusion from the sacraments should cease, it does not follow that the Ancient Order of Hibernians should be recognized as a Church society. Bishop (William) McCloskey and (McQuaid) had a pleasant visit to Cleveland. Bishop (James G. Bagshawe) of Nottingham has raised a row by his condemnation of the Primrose League. Condemnations or approvals of these societies ought to be given with the great caution. (McQuaid) has not heard from Rome. At Cleveland, he saw a letter from (Ella B.) Edes in which she let out news of the Albany division. Gilmour showed the letter to McCloskey, who does not like Edes or correspondence with her. Gilmour did not know this until later.

1886 Mar. 29,
Bekkers, (Father) B.J.: Tucker, Miss(issippi)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

This mission which Bishop (Francis) Jannsens (of Natchez) founded among the poor remnant of the Choctaw Indians stands in the backwoods of Mississippi, 39 miles from the nearest settlement. When Jannsens came from Europe in 1882, Bekkers came with him to take charge of the Indians in the Natchez Diocese, but he did not arrive in Neshoba Co(unty) until Nov(ember) 25, 1883. Bekkers then set out to make the acquaintance of the Indians, and at first sometimes thought it impossible to start a mission among them, but after two months he got permission from the Bishop, and by June, 1884, he had bought land and settled the Indian families. He built a little church which was consecrated on Sept(ember) 10, 1884, Bekkers soon baptized a few children. But the bigoted white population, which knows the Indians distrust their so-called white friends who cheated and robbed them, aroused the fears of the Indians. Kindness, however, overcame their fears, and Bekkers established a small school of which the Sisters of Mercy took charge on Sept(ember) 30, 1885, at the request of Bishop Jannsens. They won the love and confidence of the Indians, the school was better attended and baptisms increased. On March 28, 1846, Bekkers received seven grown Indians into the Church and celebrated the marriage of one couple. Since the opening of his mission he has administered 58 baptisms and one marriage. 12 baptized Indians have gone to Heaven. Some time ago McMaster offered his columns to those who wished to make known the progress of Indian missions. Bekkers considers his mission a success, but in order to make it still more of a success, the school must be enlarged so that Indians who cannot move upon mission land may send their children. The Diocese of Natchez cannot do much for the mission, so Bekkers requests McMaster to come to his aid. The contributions could be sent either to McMaster or to Jannsens, and if the donators have any special intention for which they would like prayers said, Bekkers, the Sisters, and the Indian children will comply with their request. (There is a note, "Show me proof", signed with McMaster's initials.)
