Eccles, Charlotte O'Conor: Dublin, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Eccles inquires if Hudson could help her get the post of Lourdes or Dublin correspondent to one or two American newspapers. She was on the staff of the Irish Fireside, but that magazine has suspended publication because of Mrs. E. Dwyer Gray's illness. Eccles' work has appeared in several first class London magazines and Messrs. Field and Ivers of the Leadenhall Press have just published her volume of essays entitled "Modern Men, by a Modern Maid" which has been favorably noticed by London newspapers and praised by J.P. O'Connor and Justin H. Mc Carthy, M.P.'s. Would Maurice F. Egan know of anything a girl could do. Times were never worse in this country. Eccles' father was the proprietor and editor of The Roscommon Messenger and so her taste for journalism.

(MacDonnell), Sister M(ary) Magdalene: (Lisbon, Portugal)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister does not think she will ever see America. They are strictly cloistered and never change their convents except for a mission. Sister has a prejudice against Irish-Americans.

Seton, Geo(rge): Edinburgh, (Scotland)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

He is ashamed to think that Robert's note of July 26 should have been so long unacknowledged. He sent a copy of Robert's statement relative to his mother to Lord Moncrieff who was greatly pleased. In the first volume of the Grenville memoirs Robert will find a curious notice of Mary Berry whose mother was a Seton of Parbroath and who died in 1852 at the age of 90. He regrets that Robert's brother, (William Seton), did not visit him when he was in England. George's little volume of anecdotes has proved very successful. Bertram Seton is a cadet of Cariston; he takes an interest in his family pedigree. George's second daughter, Marg(aret) Montgomerie (Seton) was married last December to her second cousin, son of the late General Wurtle of the Artillery and is now in Shanghai where he is connected with an American Marine Insurance House of Russell and Company.

Conway last Monday evening, who spoke of Brownson and the works of Dr. (Orestes A.) Brownson very flatteringly. Fitzgibbon told ( ) Elder of Brownson's success here and advised him to call on Judge ( ) Clifford, ( ) Brosseau and Mrs. ( ) Jones, who will purchase Brownson's works. The Calumet National Bank can be purchased, although there are differences among its managers. It will pay 20% on the capital stock this year. His wife and her brother are very anxious to buy out the bank and Fitzgibbon thinks they will do so although he has had some very good proposals to reenter the distilling business. If they buy the bank he can be president. He sends his best wishes and hopes Brownson will write, and will visit again soon.

What became of (Maurice) Egan's promised notice of (James Alphonsus) McMaster? And Hudson hauled up Father Edmund (Hill, C.P.) before he was ready.

Hickey ougth to accept the letter as a satisfactory explanation of Hudson's conduct and an extension of the olive branch. Hickey has sailed for Europe which indicates he can not be too hard up.

Mannix often turns over in her mind the project of a Catholic magazine for young people under the auspices of the Ave Maria. Is there no one else at Notre Dame who could be called on to assist? Would Charles Warren Stoddard be a desirable person? Mannix's sister reports having met Hudson. If her sister would write Hudson would find her more acceptable than Mannix. Are there any ways of making a living at South Bend? They have almost resolved to leave there. The indictments against (John B.) Mannix have not been withdrawn. While they are in force his hands are tied. Mr. Mannix has grown dispirited under it all. If the Blessed Virgin would send them the money for paying the debt their lives would be devoted to paying her back.

 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

(McQuaid) sends three volumes of "La Revue Theologique." The opinion of the Louvain professor is that the minor excommunication is not abrogated. Evidently all who encourage Father (Edward) McGlynn in his contumacy are excommunicated. It is very difficult to get a complete set of "La Revue," but by leaving an order with the publisher, it may be filled before long. (McQuaid)'s letter to Pope Leo XIII was short and simple, but it contained a draft for 33,726 francs, so he will not doubt (McQuaid)'s veneration and good will. P.S. Did Baltimore reply to the slip from the Figaro?

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

(McQuaid) has been looking over the Acta and read much that is interesting about excommunication. It is worth reading, if only to see how learned men differ. The writer quotes "La Revue Theologique." Was it not very cool for Bishop (John J.) Keane and Co. to send their joint letter to their priests. They are determined to override them in their own dioceses. (McQuaid)'s letter to Cardinal (James) Gibbons declining to permit collecting for the (Catholic) University (of America) does not lack frankness. Gibbons consented to be the medium for sending a letter to the Pope not as the President's, but the Cardinal's at the request of the President. The wonderful present is the Constitution, which can be explained and then swallowed. If only Brownson or MacMaster was alive! (McQuaid) will send a copy of his letter to the Cardinal.

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

Welch celebrated Mass on Christmas Day at the convent of the Sisters (of the Holy Cross) on Massachusetts Ave. The establishment seems to be in a flourishing condition.

This money together with $51,000, which was left to them has enabled them to reduce their heavy debt. Father (Robert) Fulton, (S.J.) is still in Ireland. Mr. Robertson, years ago a minister at the Advent, went to England where he was received into the Society and was recently ordained. His sister, Sister Mary Esther has now been received into the Church. Father Tim(othy J. Danahy) is still at Quincy.
