Cassell, Harry,:
Private Chamberlain Rome, (Italy)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

In sending the enclosed letters, the Father Prior (Patrick J. Glynn, O.S.A.) asks (McMaster's) sympathy and aid. In an audience Cassell had had with the Pope (on July 31, 1886), he thanked him in the name of the Irish people for the permission given them to have the National Church in Rome dedicated in the honor of their Apostle. The Pope said he was unable to afford more than 4,000 lire, but that he felt sure all His Irish children would assist in raising a church worthy of St. Patrick. He also charged Cassell to convey his Blessing to (Father Glynn) and all the Irish Augustinians, and to all those who will help in this good cause. Cassell is sure he need not say more to engage (McMaster's) valuable assistance.

 Enclosure: 

1886 Aug. 9
Glynn, O.S.A., (Father) Patrick J., Prior (of Santa Maria in Posterula): Rome, (Italy)
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

During the past ten years many churches and monasteries have been destroyed, and many more will probably be destroyed during the next decade. Last month the Italian authorities ordered the destruction of Santa Maria in Posterula, the home of the Irish Augustinian students, and a year was granted for the erection of a new residence. The compensation promised is barely sufficient to provide a new college in a healthy quarter of Rome, and as Pope Leo XIII has expressed the desire that a Church in honor of St. Patrick be built by the side of the new college, and was himself able to contribute only 4000 lira (francs) towards its erection, all (the faithful) throughout the world are asked to contribute generously. While more than four (?) centuries have passed since St. Patrick received his commission to preach to the Irish, no Church has yet been dedicated to him in Rome. The present time is most fitting for such a project, and no Pope has loved the Irish race more than the present one. —- P.S. He gives his address in Ireland. (This is a form letter, with the date, greeting and postscript filled in Cassell's writing)

 Second enclosure 

1886 July 20
Kirby, Archbishop T. ( ), Rector of:
the Irish College
 to (Father) P(atrick J.) Glynn, (O.S.A.): (Rome, Italy)

He hears with singular pleasure of Glynn's intention to build a church in Rome in honor of St. Patrick. He is sure every Irish Catholic will be joyful at the thought, for while Rome is adorned with churches in honor of the patrons of different countries, the apostle of Ireland has not even a public Oratory in his honor. It will be Glynn's proud privilege to fill this void. Kirby wishes him every success, and encloses an offering of ten pounds.

 Third enclosure: 

1886 July 21
John Cardinal Simeoni,Prefect Sacred Congregation of Propaganda Dominic, Archbishop of Tyre, Secretary:
 to Father Patrick Glynn, O.S.A.,:
Rector College of the Augustinian Order for the Irish Nation

Father Glynn's most gracious plan to erect at Rome near the new College of his order a Church for the use not only of Romans, but especially of visitors who speak English came to the ears of Pope Leo XIII. He was pleased first of all that this edifice be erected to the honor of Saint Patrick, Apostle of the Irish, who was consecrated bishop at Rome by Saint Celestine I, and under the latter's order and auspices sent to instruct Ireland in the Christian Faith. And so the Pope, who has always loved the Irish nation, has highly approved of this plan and imparts a special blessing on all those who give money towards the erecting of this shrine. And in order to confirm by an example the faithful, especially of the English language in their task of collecting the funds, and though hindered by the adversity of the times, he has given four thousand Italian lira towards the work. He prays God to safeguard Father Glynn.

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

McMaster is glad that John is getting nearer New York, and that he is going to see the sisters. He urges John to make a long visit at Baltimore, (Maryland), and to visit Sharon (Hill), (Pennsylvania), both going and coming. If he can, he should hunt up Mr. Sneeringer in Baltimore. He may skip any of the places this side of Pittsburgh if he wishes John should receive Communion on St. Alphonsus' Day if he can, but if he cannot, he should remember that the feast has an octave in all Redemptorist churches. (John R.) Gloniger is administrator of Gilbert Fetterman's estate, but has no right to act as administrator of the estate of John's grandmother, Sarah B. Fetterman, and McMaster wants John to call Dr. Oldshue's attention to Gloniger's statement that the stock he held as administrator was valuable. Gloniger ought to turn over to John and his sisters their Mother's one-fifth of this stock. John should asks Dr. Oldshue about his share of the sale of the Steel-Works, amounting to $4,370,00, which Dr. Oldshue invested. He should tell Dr. Oldshue that he wants the loan called in next May, as he can do better with the money. John's room has been prepared for him, to bid him welcome.

She is glad Phonse, with whom she had a pleasant visit, is back with McMaster again. She should like a picture of Our Lady of Good Counsel.

She thanks him for his letter and its enclosure.

She is sending also the "Life of M. Teresa of Jesus (Xaverine de Maistre)". (Sister) Gertrude thinks it would be difficult to make her life interesting for general reading. She thanks him for promising to send the Freeman and the Quarterly. Mother is very pressed just now——The election was held on Thursday and S(iste)r Angela is now Mother Sub-Prioress. She is glad that (John Alphonsus) is at home again, and reminds McMaster that he made his appeal to Carmel in her behalf two years ago today. They enjoyed his article on the "Watchful Worshipper". P.S. S(iste)r Teresa is steadily improving. They shall pray for the Misses Drexel.

Egan has reason to dislike the prominence given to the minims at Notre Dame, perhaps Father Walsh told Hudson of the trouble Egan had in placing a man with a Notre Dame diploma because of the minims. Father (Andrew) Morrissey has been well received in New York. Getting out the (New York) Freeman's (Journal) gave Egan endless trouble and he is glad to be free.

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

The day named for the meeting in Troy is satisfactory to (McQuaid). Cardinal (John) Franslin (Franzelin?) shows his peculiarities in the alterations he introduces. Father (James S.) O'Sullivan of Hudson writes to say he no longer has anything to do with the suit with Hudson Church. He has made his claim over to his brother to pay his debts. He cannot pay his personal debts with church money. The church at Hudson owes him nothing. As he has appealed to the Holy See to place his case before civil courts, it is a gross indignity. (McQuaid) is curious about what (Corrigan) has to say of the machinations in Rome. (McQuaid) has allowed Father (Edward) Hanna to go to Rome for a year. He sends three or four of his students there in the autumn and may be obliged to send all his students abroad as it may be impossible for them to enter American seminaries. What a farce. Archbishop (John J.) Williams left on Monday to return to Boston. He enjoys Hemlock Lake more than anyone.

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

Edes explains the difficulties she has experienced in attempting to meet Monsignor (Peter) Dufal, C.S.C. She contrasts the rude way she was received at Dufal's residence with the gracious manner in which she was received by the Cardinal Vicar. Edes thinks the way American Catholic newspapers crib from the column "Roman Letters", which appears in the Tablet, without crediting the same, is amusing. The Catholic Telegraph regularly gives a column of "Roman Correspondence" and the The Columbian at least a page of extracts, copied from the Tablet. The Catholic Standard of Philadelphia, besides rarely crediting what it cribs, frequently interpolates the news under what it credits to the Liverpool Catholic Times, which makes Mr. Consiallan, its correspondent, as well as the Pilot's laugh. The Catholic Mirror stole verbatim three paragraphs from the July10 "Roman Letter" column of the Tablet, including the typographical errors, inserting them in the letters from its Roman Correspondent, Waldo. Waldo is Count Edward Soderini, a writer of merit on historical and political matters, but a laughing stock among Romans because of his pomposity. Edes was amused at the editorial in the Catholic Mirror of July 31, which is an example of compromising the Pope, who is unaware that the Archbishop of Baltimore, a few years ago, withdrew recognition of this newspaper as his official organ. Tell Father General quietly not to be taken in by Monsignor (Germano) Straniero.

They were glad to receive Robert's last letter. It came when J(ohn) G(ilmary) Shea's daughter was with them. William always finds London the most attractive place. She does not think their steamer will arrive in New York before September 6; it would be better for Robert to call at Doctor Lee's to ascertain their whereabouts. They have written to Mrs. Leavitt to accommodate them. It will be a great pleasure to tell Robert about their trip and the bisits they made to their connections. Sir William Worsley's place is like a beautiful picture in her memory; he has no children. At present his wife is an invalid from rheumatism. His mother died a few months since. Robert must know that all his connections they have met are conservatives. Mrs. (Catharine) Legard, Sir George Cayley's last surviving child, is very interesting and intelligent. They expect to send her Mother Seton's life by Madame de Barberey. Sarah expects to send her a list of the relics in their possession. Mrs. Legard has written a history of her early memories when her father took so interested a part in public affairs. Sarah's mother and William are near her and send messages; her sister and aunt have gone to the South Kensington Museum. She is glad that Lizzie (Elizabeth Seton) has had the happiness of having Jack (John Foster Seton) with her this summer. Sarah hears that Tom and Isabel (Thomas Jevons) and (Isabella Seton Jevons) may leave America about the time they sail for home.

DeVeuster, (SS.CC.), Father J(oseph) Damien: Kalawao, Molokai, (Hawaiian Islands)

DeVeuster sends Hudson a copy of a letter to the Superior-General of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts, Father Marcellus Bousquet, which may be of use to Hudson and of interest to the readers of the Ave Maria. Since (Ira B.) Dutton's arrival he has helped him care for the sick. Because the tabernacles of both churches are not decent enough to preserve the Blessed Sacrament and at Dutton's suggestion, DeVeuster asks Hudson to send him metal with which they can make two tabernacles. He sends his regards to Stoddard and requests copies of his book "Lepers of Molokai".

 Enclosure: 

1886 Aug. 25
DeVeuster, (SS.CC.), Father J(oseph) Damien: Kalawao, Molokai, (Hawaiian Islands)
 to Father Marcellus Bousquet: Paris, (France)

By a letter of Bishop Hermann (Koeckemann), Vicar Aposotolic of the Sandwich Islands published by the Missions Catholique, the public has been informed of the situation in which DeVeuster finds himself. Ten years ago, he wrote Bousquet that he believed the germ of leprosy was in his system because of his long stay with the lepers. DeVeuster is decorated not only with the royal cross of King Kalakana, but also the heavy cross of leprosy. His constitution is being gradually undermined but he continues his active life and since the departure of Father Albert, DeVeuster administers to the needs of two leper villages. Last year the Hawaiian Board of Health, under the direction of the Japanese, Doctor Goto, introduced the Japanese treatment for leprosy in the branch hospital at Kakaako, near Honolulu, which is managed by a band of Franciscan Sisters. Last month DeVeuster visited the hospital to see the results of the treatment, as well as to study the process. Doctor Goto told DeVeuster that a large number of cases have been cured in Japan by the treatment. As for DeVeuster, it is a consolation to know that relief has been given in a considerable number of advanced cases. King Kalakana visited him at the Sisters' hospital and promised to introduce the treatment in the grand lazaretto. As a result of taking the treatment DeVeuster has recovered strength.

Schneider, A( ), Jr.: ( )
 to (James Alphonsus McMaster): (New York, New York)

Schneider writes a letter to the editor in which he calls McMaster's attention to an article in the "Christian Nation", Aug. 25 (1886) which asserts that Catholics cannot boast that they have an unbroken line of succession from St. Peter, since there were long intervals when there was no Pope. Schneider has neither time nor patience to consider the article at length, but cannot see how any sane and sincere person can take refuge in such sophistry. The Catholic Church alone has the "genuine stamp upon it"; it is the one Christ founded.
