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

Berlinquet thanks Hudson for the stamps he sent her step-son.

Sadlier's paper. First Sadlier broke her leg and then three nieces died of diphtheria so that neither aunt nor grandmother who live with another married sister could go near the house. Berlinquet frequently hears from the Tracadie Lazaretto. She spent two weeks there once. Berlinquet is to be addressed as Mrs. F. X. T. Berlinquet.

Hudson, C.S.C., Father Daniel E.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Hudson thanks Brownson for his letter of the 29th and hopes he will let his name appear with the book, for it will need just that support and prestige. The pamphlet is anxiously expected. If Brownson is to furnish the Ave Maria with anything from Tarducci's work, it should appear before the book comes out. The series of articles will be reserved for the year of the celebration. He asks if Tarducci's work had a portrait of Columbus. He hopes to see Brownson during the summer if he can arrange to spend some Sunday with Father (Ernest) Van Dyke.

"The Shrine of the Roses" has been delayed by visitors from Chicago.

Durward, Father J(ohn) T.: Baraboo, Wis(consin)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

Seton's letter of May 11 was read. Two days ago Durward had a letter from Aubrey de Vere. He is sending Durward a new edition of "Legends of St. Patrick" which De Vere says he wrote to induce his fellow countrymen to love their patron more. De Vere too complains of the Catholic publishing houses. Truly the insane hatred of some of the Irish is greatly to be lamented. Durward has ransacked his brain to think what word of his Seton construed into hatred of aristocracy. Seton's mention of the Catacombs carries Durward back to dear Rome.

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

It was written by one of their pupils, a priest, who owns stock in the newspaper. He is a fool and a bore. Will Hudson get Stoddard a photograph of Mr. ( ) Coyne? (Rudyard) Kipling's reputation has come so suddenly that he doubts it will last. He found the article on (Robert Louis) Stevenson entertaining. Fred Somers, the editor of Current Literature, is not a Catholic, but is favorably disposed. Stoddard has just been showing "Ambos" of the Chicago Tribune through the house.

Harper, Elizabeth: Brooklyn, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Harper received a letter from (Ira B.) Dutton asking her to describe to Hudson the visit of Bishop Hermann (Koeckemann) of Honolulu to Molokai. Koeckemann was there from May 6 to 9. Father Wendelin (Moellers) left with him to regain his health. Father Mathias was left to take his place. Koeckemann is advanced in age. Doctor (Godwyn) Swift took photographs and got what he has been long asking for. At the suggestion of Mother Marianne, O.S.F., Dutton sent a copy of (Robert Louis) Stevenson's "Open Letter" with which the Bishop (Koeckemann) was pleased. Harper warned Dutton against (Amy C.) Fowler's camera, because when Dr. Kimball, the President of the Board of Health, made a recent visit to the Island, he had a party with him, one of which was Fowler and a Miss Sweet, non de plume, Annie Laurie, who is connected with a San Francisco newspaper. Dutton has permission to allow the information in his statements to go to Hudson, Doctor (Prince Albert) Morrow and the Picpus Fathers at Louvain. Dutton says the statement will make good a promise to send some sketches of Father (Joseph) Damien (De Veuster) to Hudson. (A clipping from the Sun is enclosed): Gorham D. Gilman of Boston writes to the Sun regarding Stevenson, Reverend Dr. Hyde and Rev. Mr. Gage.

Munson, Jo(h)n W.: St. Louis, M(iss)o(uri)
 to Austin E. Ford: N(ew) Y(ork, New York)

He was not able to go back to New York from Baltimore. If a cash offer of $5,000 and 50% of all collections up to $13,000 on the present subscription list will suit Ford he is to write. Without the paper the list would be worthless. It is not his business what Ford gave for the New York Freeman's Journal, but since it is no better condition than when purchased by Ford, it affects his valuation.

Dutton, Brother Joseph (Ira B.): Molokai, Sandwich Islands
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

There is nothing further from Father (O'Callaghan) of Tasmania. He did receive a letter from Father M. J. Beechinor dated Richmond, Tasmania, who considers it his duty to say that he considers Mr. Ramsay unfit for service. Ramsay is overzealous in his work for temperance. From mention that he seeks help from (Patrick) Cardinal Moran to come to Molokai, Dutton infers that he will apply to the Board of Health at Honolulu. Dutton has sent Beechinor's letter to Bishop (Hermann Koeckemann) suggesting that he acquaint the Board of Health with this information. Doctor (Prince Albert) Morrow wishes to see Dutton's information about Father (Joseph) Damien (DeVeuster), which he will also furnish Hudson. Dutton gives Hudson permission to let William P. Lyons read it. If Hudson and (Charles Warren) Stoddard wish to use the information in their writing, they may. Dutton does not object to Doctor Berteling's reading the statement. (Elizabeth) Harper will probably give Hudson the substance of this information. It was Dutton's fault that Hudson got the papers from Mr. Justi. Justi is not a Catholic; he gives some data on leprosy in Norway, which put the Hawaiian Board of Health into correspondence with Doctor (Gerhard A.) Hansen of Norway. The sisters have been present for three weeks. Hudson will get a copy of the last report of the Board of Health. He sends a clipping from the Honolulu Gazette. (No enclosure).

Ford cannot entertain Munson's proposition inasmuch as he has a standing offer from Prof(essor) John P. Brophy of St. Louis College (New York City) of $10,000 cash regardless of the present condition of the property. His original offer less the $3200 contract stands until Wednesday after which time it closes irrevocably. Ford is sure that Munson will not use any information Ford has given him thus far to his disadvantage.

Foy, Peter L.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, (Michigan)

Foy received Brownson's letter of the 13th but he has been too busy with an article for the July Quarterly that he has had no time to answer. This will be little more than an acknowledgement. He has not seen (Henry J.) Spaunhorst since Detroit nor heard from (William J.) Onahan and is ignorant of whether the call has been issued. As to the papers, he has concluded that he will not press his own views, even when he has clear views, which he has not at present. The movement originated with Brownson and the chief labor will fall on him; He is prepared to accept Brownson's program without dissent. It was not to save himself labor and trouble that he suggested that Brownson ask some one else to prepare a paper on Catholic Charities, but that it would be politic to enlist as much outside ability as possible. But the committee may have to trust to itself and in any case only a few papers will be required. At subsequent meetings more ground can be covered and more contributors can be had. Since Foy's declining to write on charities would cause Brownson to decline writing on lay activities in the Church, a subject which he is so capable of handling and which demands bold treatment, he retracts the condition refusal in his last letter. He hopes Brownson will get a history paper from (John) Gilmary Shea. When Foy gets the Quarterly article off his hands he will be able to give more time to Congress matters. P.S.: He read the article on ( ) Sullivan with deep interest. He did not think his antecedents were of such a character.

Rhodius, M(amie): Indianapolis, (Indiana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is in excellent health, but it is extremely hot and she is not so slender, it is hard on her. Mr. Caffy wanted to take her and George (Rhodius) to St. Mary's of the Woods to see his daughter graduate. She is astonished that George is not at Notre Dame by this time.

Munson, Jo(h)n W.: St. Louis, M(iss)o(uri)
 to Austin E. Ford: N(ew) Y(ork, New York)

Munson offers his congratulations to Ford in his married life. As for the paper he fears he will have to let it go and turn his hopes elsewhere as the offer of $10,000 cash is better than his offer of $5,000 and 50% of the collections. He has not as yet sold his property. Munson believes that he could collect most of the subscription list that is solvent; he did not mean to limit Ford's payments with any idea that he would not get $13,000 out of it. Munson makes another offer which he details and will be glad to have Ford keep him in mind as a future purchaser. Ford may be sure that he will treat any information he has given him thus far as confidential. Although he consulted with several friends and acquaintances in N(ew) Y(ork) he is sure that he has said nothing Ford would object to.

Shea, John Gilmary: Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

It was with great reluctance that he found he must give up any attempt to travel. He cannot hope to gather all the material on the period he is treating. The gentleman of whom Shea spoke was Col. Bernard U. Campbell of Ellicott's Mills, (Maryland), who began a life of Archbishop (John) Carroll in U. S. Catholic Magazine. He had collected much from Bishop (Edward) Fenwick (of Cincinnati, O.) and Father George Fenwick, both interested in such matters. He had trunks full of papers but his widow finally destroyed them. When the United States menaced New Orleans all the papers of Bishops (Luis) Penalver (y Cardenas) and (William V.) DuBourg were put in a fire place and bricked up. Later the wall was removed and as no one had thought to close the top of the chimney, the rain made the papers a mass of pulp. They were thrown away. Father (Peter) Cooney, (C.S.C.) told Shea he bought the valuable Catholic historical pamphlets on the (Rev. Joseph M.) Finotti sale, forwarded them to Notre Dame and never could trace the bundle. It was opened some taken by one, some by another. It is strange how people will pass judgment on papers and destroy things they know nothing about. The Annapolis edition of Rev. (Charles H.) Wharton's Poetical Epistle to George Washington would be worth $500. Shea has a New England edition hitherto unknown. Wharton who had apostatized was answered by his kinsman, Father John Carroll. There are catechisms that are of value for purposes of study: Hogan's; Bishop (Henry) Conwell's, so incorrect that he had to suppress it; Bishop (Benedict J.) Flaget's, which was sharply criticized; Reuter's German Catechism, which was the basis of a complaint at Rome against Bishop Carroll. Records of Councils, Synods and Statutes are rare because Catholics have wantonly destroyed them. He hopes Edwards' work will check vandalism.

Van der Eerden, S.J., Father A(loysius) G.:
St. Ignatius College, (Chicago, Illinois)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Van der Eerden received Brownson's letter this afternoon, on his arrival from Dwight, Illinois, and received the pamphlet at Dwight. The other copies are yet at St. Louis and are to be forwarded to be circulated around as soon as they reach him. The pamphlet makes a very strong case against the masons. The question will be how to get it sufficiently critiized. He intends to send his copies to friends and to scatter them at the missions. He questions whether the pamphlet will take with the masses but surely it will strike the educated as a fearful unmasking of the masonic idol. He will be in Michigan in July to talk with Brownson. He encloses a check.

Delbaer, Father Henry L.: L'Erable, Illinois
 to (James Farnham Edwards): Notre Dame, Indiana

Delbaer will send a box of books; that small donation is an addition to the library he sent about 1 years ago. Delbaer intends to go to the old country since the death of Bishop Caspar Henry Borgess in Kalamazoo. Delbaer thanks Edwards for the hospitality he enjoyed at the college during the persecution he sustained at the hands of B.B. in consequence of his deposition of an oath in the first week of May 1873 followed exactly 17 years after by a "depositio cadaveris" in the grave of Father (Isadore Anthony) Lebel which he desecrated so horribly 18 years ago.

Dutton, (Ira B.) Joseph: Molokai, Sandwich Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will get a letter from (Elizabeth) Harper. He had been doing work for Bishop (Hermann Koeckemann) relating to the renewal of the Hyde and Company charges. Three sisters are at work at Kalawao. Koeckemann thought it well to have on record what Dutton prepared on Father (Joseph) Damien (De Veuster). Perhaps Hudson has not seen the letters by the correspondent, who came with (Amy C.) Fowler, which Dutton forwards. Miss Sweet did not heed the Mother's request and made errors in her writing. She spoke of Dutton's not offering his hand, but did not say he had not washed his hands after dressing sores. They talked of mutual friends in Chicago; Dutton mentioned Sheriff Matson with whom he served as sergeant in the War. If the truth had not been overstepped, the scandal mongers probably would have kept quiet.

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

After a few pleasant days at Tours, W(illiam) and Sally took the express to Bordeaux, and then to Pau. He thought of their slow journey in 1852 by diligence; they drove to the Hotel De la Poste, the same hotel where they spent their first night. On the morrow they went to the Protestant God's Acre and soon found their mother's (Emily Prime Seton) grave. Mr. and Mrs. Veronese are dead; the son is in Paris. Barbandy, the tailor who lived in the Maison Barère where their mother died, is dead. W(illiam) looked up at the window of the room where their mother died; he also looked well at the Maison Centraille. The place Henri Quatre looks about the same: Mr. Lespis, once a professor at the Lycee, who gave Emily (Seton) Latin lessons, lives near the hotel. The old porter Lanchat and wife are dead. Bernard who used to take their mother out to drive is living but not in Pau. They may return tomorrow to Paris.

H(udson, C.S.C.), Father D(aniel) E.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Hudson wishes Brownson would send him another copy of his pamphlet. His has disappeared, and he has been very busy. Bishop (John L.) Spaulding had a room near his and he felt obliged to attend to his needs a little; and it is very hot. Possibly (Luigi) Gregori did copy the portrait in the first volume of Tarducci's work. Hudson asks when the book will be published and would like to have some advance sheets in the meantime—the most interesting chapters—which might be called "Scenes or Leaves from the Life of Columbus", and in a footnote explain matters. He would like to have the first at once and intends to announce Brownson's work, explaining that it really ought to supplant Irving's Life with Catholic readers. He asks whether (Father Ernest Van Dyke) is going away this summer. He would like to assist him at the Feast of the Assumption. He doesn't know how happy it makes Hudson to be at St. Aloysius'. The Irish make promises so heartily and with such cordial spontaneity that they rarely think of fulfillment: they fancy that all is done when they say "I will" and they always mean well. Book premiums are not given at Notre Dame except to the minims. Before using the advance sheets of Brownson's translation, Hudson wants to arrange for remuneration. If Brownson thinks it would not favor the sale of the book to have it in the Ave Maria, he should not hesitate to say so. Hudson would prefer to have the Columbus articles in '92, and he is on the track of some that will be of exceptional interest. He asks Brownson to skim the work of Tarducci and connect the extracts as he did those on the Blessed Virgin from the writings of his father.

Cantwell, Father J(ohn): Nottingham, (England)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Cantwell acknowledges the receipt of Brownson's letter and his pamphlet on freemasonry and describes his daily schedule and his love for Dr. (Orestes A.) Brownson, who consoles him since he is alone in the world. Some years ago the Jesuits in the Civilta attacked Cesare Cantu, who asked the Archbishop of Milan to point out anything wrong, and was vindicated. Cantwell reflects on the natural human weaknesses of bishops and his own faith. He is sure Brownson has genius and talent to do much good and assures him of his best wishes.

Harper, Elizabeth: Brooklyn, (New York)

At the request of (Ira B.) Dutton and Doctor P(rince) A(lbert) Morrow, Harper has had four type written copies made of Morrow's notes on Father (Joseph) Damien (De Veuster). Three are to be sent to the Sandwich Islands. Dutton informed Harper that Bishop (Herman Koeckemann) allows him to have a few copies made of statements he made on the traits and works of De Veuster. The copy for Hudson is going to Father (Francis X.) Dutton in Cincinnati first. Dutton said nothing about Father Dutton being allowed a reading of these documents.
