Elliot, C.S.P., Father Walter: New York, (New York)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father Elliot wishes to know whether Brownson's father (Orestes A. Brownson) was ever a resident member of the Brook Farm Community. In writing the life of Father (Isaac T.) Hecker that question comes up and Dr. Brownson is mentioned as one of its founders. He does not himself refer to it in The Convert, nor does Father Elliot know where else to look in his writings.

Stanfield, Flora Louise: South Bend, Indiana
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She had heard of him at Dr. Berteling's and Egan's. Stanfield has obtained permission to send Hudson a clipping regarding (Francesca) Alexander. She sends the first part of her story, "Sir Billy's Secret".

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

St(raniero), Mgr. G(ermano): Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

His correspondence with the (Catholic) News was stopped only for a month.

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

Eastman sends Hudson a copy of a letter she sent to (John) Murphy and Company. She asks that some notice of their carelessness be inserted in the Ave Maria.

She wants to subscribe to the Ave Maria for one year and have it sent to Jack Reilly.

1890 Apr. 6
(Brownson, Jr.), Orestes (A.): (Dubuque, Iowa)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

The magnitude of the undertaking has deterred Orestes from writing down some reminders of their father (Orestes A. Brownson), as Henry requested him to do. He remembers their father's telling how when he preached his first sermon, although he wore a thick woolen suit, his exertion and excitement were so great that it was as wet as if he had fallen into the river. Henry will know how he got over all that. Before he was acquainted with their mother and married, his prodigious memory had been noticed by a school trustee, who in Grandfather arranged a match between his Sally (Healy Brownson) and the young teacher, in which 20 verses of one of the Psalms were to be learned as a test. Both reported ready at once—in 20 minutes. Their father also gave their mother credit for the most tenacious memory as to dates, and Orestes remembers his asking her when such an event took place; and she gave the day as being so many days after the meeting of the ministers. In arithmetic also, he always said, "Ask your mother"; and when at the Hospital she added up the long columns of figures with unfailing accuracy. Somehow he did not like mathematical calculations. One day when money was scarce, he came from the city with an armful of books. Never had Orestes seen him so pleased and proud. He showed them to their mother, Greek and Latin, and said, "Only think, I got them for $125". But this was at a time Henry well remembers. In earlier days, when he was a Minister and in a great loose dress used to preach with all the serious earnestness of life and death, he impressed Orestes with an idea of fear that he can never overcome. His whole soul was in his metaphysical, philosophical and theological studies and did not see that what interested him could not interest his son Orestes. Henry knows better the wonderful scope and power of his giant mind. He told Orestes once, "If I am a success in life. I owe it to my knowledge and use of my mother tongue of English— Anglo-Saxon English." Orestes finds it so; there seems such a command of language, such felicity of expression, always the best word in every case and withal such an enthusiasm. Although Orestes never could and cannot yet agree with all his conclusions, he is lost in admiration at his language and infallible logic. His example does more to prove a divine essence in faith than all else he has witnessed. But it saddens Orestes to write of him. He feels himself approaching the end of his life and the problem of life is insoluable to him as ever. He would like to live his life over again or do something towards making it a success. But he sees nothing—he thinks much but cannot think or agree entirely with anyone. He cannot publish his thoughts, for his life would be taken before he could begin to explain. While he has reason to fear being as wrong in matters of social, political, economic or religious questions, as he always has been in the business of life, there seems no way to test his ideas or to show their fallacies. He read the papers of the Catholic Congress and would like to discuss portions he disagrees with; but as his son Charley says, it does not pay to fight the Church; and the moment any discussion begins, it is understood as contra fidem. Therefore he buries himself in chess: for there no one objects to one's moving any way one pleases, or thinks it strange to reason for or against any kind of play. He asks how the lecture succeeded, how Henry and his family are. He and his wife are the same, though his sight is failing.

Ten Broeck, R.S.H., Sister E(lizabeth): (Torresdale, Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The Eddington Boys gave a concert before their pupils and Madame Edwards asked Madame Kendrick to "take" the band with their bandmaster, Brother Anatole and Father ( ) Quinn. Will Hudson pray for N(icholas) Stonestreet, a brother of Father (Charles H.) Stonestreet? Father (John J.) Murphy, (S.J.), visited Eden Hall with Father (Peter) Blenkinsop, S.J. Murphy stated he purposely chose those harsh terms in his broadside. The Jesuits say that the firing is aimed at the Sacre Coeur. Religious of the Sacre Coeur do not consider themself or their method superior to other orders. Their purpose is to train daughters of American gentlemen not teachers. It is often remarked that in America women are better educated than men, which reminds Sister of the reply Chauncey Depew's mother, Martha, made when asked why she married bluff Captain Depew. She answered that her varnish would wear off while in her home, but her husband would become more polished in the world. With one exception in the United States, Madame Ganci, Superior at St. Michael's, all their superiors are American. While Bishop (John) Dubois invited them into New York, his successors were of a different mind and only because of the tact of Mother (Mary Aloysia) Hardey did peace prevail. Evils of nationalism are reflected by Irish opposition to Bishop Armand de Charbonnel's nomination to the see of Toronto and Bishop (Casper H.) Borgess's nomination to the see of Detroit.

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

Dorsey was charmed to hear from Seton again, and thanks him for the Memoir. It will be an example for others of gentle birth to follow. She was disappointed to miss seeing Seton last summer when she took a run north. She has done nothing practical with her notes yet as she spent from December 15 to April 7 in the clutches of the grippe. She is now the Russian translator of the Library of Foreign Patents in the Interior Department. Her family joins her in regards. (P.S.) This is a sheet of mother's (Anna Hanson Dorsey) paper as Seton sees by the Hanson arms. She does not use the design as she is under the impression that a daughter must bear her father's arms.

He was asked to join the (Theodore) Vails at their farm in New Hampshire. They are expecting to close June 19. Stoddard may not be back until October 1. He has just received a copy of "Le Pere Damien" by Mrs. Augustus Craven in which she gives the Ave Maria full credit for all she has translated from Stoddard's sketch.

The library there contains one thousand works, $500 worth of which are the gift of Lucy Drexel. Hudson will please read Bouvier - the father and mother of Madame Bouvier, R.S.H. and of Mrs. Fran(cis Anthony) Drexel. Sister sends a clipping of Emma Albani.

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

McDonnell thanks Hudson for the bundles of Ave Marias and the bound volume. Alfred des Essarts evidently took the story from someone else. She has permission to publish a life of St. Pius V. She will have no dealings with Burns and Oates, but perhaps the Catholic Publication Society would publish the manuscript. McDonnell was sorry to hear of (Ella Loraine) Dorsey's illness. She suggests a trip to Europe for Hudson. McDonnell just looked up from her letter to see a German iron-clad glide down the Tagus to Lisbon. The English squadron has not come in since Lisbon went crazy over Lourenco Marquis. They say D(on) Carlos will have a short reign. It was the ironclad that caused that bit of politics.

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

(McQuaid) thought that Rome had wisely ordered Father (Richard L.) Burtsell to obey, without a formal investigation, but a juridical form has to be gone through with. No one could be a better ponenti for (Corrigan) than Cardinal (Camillo) Mazzella. (McQuaid) also sent some newspaper clippings to the Cardinal. The whole affair has shocked and scandalized Catholics and surprised Protestants. Msgr. (Arthur J.) Donnelly was buried with all honor. (Corrigan) will have the news of the meeting in Brooklyn. It will ward off the French-Canadian invasion for some time. Msgr. (James T.) McManus is very sick. Msgr. (Denis J.) O'Connell is still wandering around the country. Bishop (Stephen) Ryan is very sick. Father (Fridolin) Pascalar expects (Corrigan) to take part in the dedication of St. Michael's Church on September 29. Tomorrow (McQuaid) visits Bishop (Richard) Gilmour. Rome is dead-set against him. Father (Louis A.) Lambert notified (McQuaid) he would take Scottsville as his mission. P.S. Bishop (John J.) Keane is to make a tour of inspection of the chief seminaries in the U.S. (McQuaid) will send a protest to Msgr. (Henry) Gabriels against such a process without (Corrigan) being warned in advance.

Hudson's letter of January 26 has arrived to find Osouf at Nagasaki where the Bishops of Japan and the delegate of the Superior of the mission of Korea were gathered for the first synod. Osouf thanks Hudson for the welcome he gave the request regarding the Leprosarium of Father Testevuide. During a confirmation tour Osouf is spending time with Testevuide, who was touched by Hudson's appeal. During the synod the people came from long distances to gain the indulgence which the Holy Father granted on the occasion of the twentyfifth anniversary of the discovery of the Japanese Christians. From eight to ten thousand Christians assisted at the ceremonies. Much distance has been covered since 1865, when the farmers made known to Father (Bernard) Petitjean the existence of the Christians.

 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Henry's kind letter made Orestes' birthday very happy. They are all delighted at the prospect of a visit from Henry and Cousin Sarah. It will be in no way inconvenient. They have the Jesuits here now, and they all were at Holy Communion this morning. Everyone is well; Orestes' Chess Journal prospers a little; and things go well on the farm.

Mr. W. said he would like to see (Charles Warren) Stoddard's "Legend of Lanai". In a previous letter Dutton mentioned that (Walter) Gibson learned what to do from Father (Joseph) Damien (De Veuster). He gave Gibson dishes and Talulah (Hayselden) gave him a lesson in cooking. Hayselden's husband was secretary of the B(oard) of H(ealth), Foreign Minister and Premier. He gave De Veuster the buggy that Stoddard rode in when at Molokai. He asked Bishop (Hermann) Koeckemann to send Harper to him. Harper sends a picture of a leper girl in Kalaupapa taken by Doctor (Godwyn) Swift. She asks that her weekly Ave Maria be sent to Father Gregory de Groote, O.S.B., at Oklahoma City. Harper and her sister are staying at a family hotel since the lease on their house expires May 1. Their sea-side house will open June 1.

Richards, H(enry) L.: Winchester, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Richards congratulates Hudson on the healthy condition of subscription list. He hopes Father (J. Talbot) Smith saw Hudson's articles on convent schools. It is too bad that a Catholic priest should disparage Catholic schools. Hudson's remark on the American spirit suggested an article which he has submitted to the (Catholic) Review. (Helen) Murtagh and Richards are anxious to get some more beads.

She thanks Seton for sending his little book on the genealogy of his branch of the Setons. Her father, Colonel (James?) Seton, would have thanked Seton too.

Should he return they hope he will not forget to spare them a week. Mrs. Conventry went to Edinburgh in the autumn. Their two nuns at St. Catherine's Convent there would have been very pleased to see Seton. They claim their convent to be built on land which once belonged to the Seton family.

Seton, W(illiam): Paris, (France)
 to Monsignor Robert (Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

He has Robert's letters of April 8 and 11. They may shortly go to London where W(illiam) will attend to Robert's commissions. James Parrish will be here in a fortnight. Robert mentions Tom; he promised to call on Mrs. Parrish but has not. Perhaps Bel or Daisy is ill. Yesterday Sally and W(illiam) called on Father David, the Lazarist priest; his collection is at the Jardin des Plantes. Père Chocarne asked about Robert. They must call on Madame (Helen Bailly) de Barberey ere they leave Paris. They will not return till autumn and may pass some of the summer in Tyrol. Robert has had a hard time since leaving Rome. Yesterday they went to the Grand Magasin du Louvre which formerly was the big hotel they stopped at over 30 years ago. How well he remembers their father (William Seton) and Emily there. There was something very pathetic in the last part of their father's life. Had he been a "Nip-Cheese", as Sands puts it, he might have laid by money.

M(annix), M(ary) E.: San Diego, Calif(ornia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Mannix has just thought of something for the beginning of May. She thinks it ought to go before the article she sent this morning. "A Tale of Two Coasts" is taking shape in her mind. A visiting priest applied with a letter from Bishop (Francis) Mora for permission to say Mass in San Diego. Someone who know him elsewhere saw him at the altar and told Father (Anthony) Uback he was a silenced priest. He denied the charge, but when Uback wrote to his former bishop, he learned the charge was true. The priest was silenced for immorality two years ago.

Mannix, Mary E.: San Diego, Calif(ornia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Maurice Francis) Egan should write a novellette for Lippincott's. Although she considers herself ill treated by Egan, she appreciates his able talents and uncompromising Catholicity. Aubrey de Vere seems to be a poet of the intellect only. He must have taken it amiss that so far the prizes have been awarded over his head by the Magazine of Poetry. He did receive honorable mention. Mannix did not try for the prize, but she sent two "Rondeaux". Hudson is right, it is not much wonder that Catholic girls do not marry Catholics. She is sending Hudson a number of the Fortnightly Review. Mannix has read part of The Journal of Marie Bashkirtseff and finds it has no merit. Yet the literary world is making a heroine of her. She wonders if the Ave Maria would criticize the book.

Howe, Frances R.: Porter, Indiana
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Is Hudson aware of the compulsory education agitation originated in the Women's Club of Chicago? There is some hatred of the Catholic Church in it, but more sheer love of notoriety. Nearly a year ago, Howe boarded in the family of the ringleader of the gang. Her parents were friends of (Robert G.) Ingersoll. Members of that committee of the Women's Club used to call where Howe boarded. The leader is about forty years old, showy in general appearance and well known in offices downtown. She possesses great attraction for other women and agitation is a great source of pride to her.
