(1891) May
Fouard, Father C(onstan)t: Rouen, (France)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

In the "Caxton Review" for March, a passage from Fouard's book "The Christ, the Son of God," is sharply criticized. In the "Ave Maria" for April the objections are quoted with approbation. Fouard consulted no Protestant writer in making his comments. The thought that Our Lord should have answered His Mother with a refusal is shocking to both critics. Fouard has done little more than follow the learned Jesuit Father Patrizi. During the last ten years and more, many bishops and theologians have read Fouard's work, and not one of them has called into question the passage alluded to. It contains nothing contrary to the doctrine or devotion of Catholics.

Fairhurst, James: London, (England)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He cannot help being conscience stricken when he finds Edwards letter unanswered but he is so busy with forced correspondence. He thanks Edwards for his letter of Christmas. The Cardinal keeps fairly well; he has been obliged ot confine himself to his rooms during winter. He fears that Mr. Newman will not live long. Fairhurst's connection with the Catholic Times has ceased.

Mawth, Sister Vincentia: St. Louis, M(iss)o(uri)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The cure recorded was really effected. The miracle shows in the sister's feeling immediately strong and well. The sisters who visited Notre Dame last summer were Mother Vincentia, Sister Alexia and Sister Evangelista. Enclosed is a clipping from the "St. Louis Post Dispatch" on the mirac ulous cure of Sister Mary Philomena.

1891 May 4
Barberey, (Helen) B(ailly) de: Paris, (France)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

Two deaths have greatly saddened her. Patrizio Filicchi wrote her regularly and in his own hand made for her copies of all the letters in the correspondence between his father and Mother Elizabeth (Bayley) Seton. And when she went to Leghorn and Pisa he received her as one of his own. Eight months ago when Barberey's husband visited Filicchi he was failing. There is no doubt that his Ubaldo (Filicchi)'s death was a terrible blow to him. Madame (Laura Filicchi) de Goracuchi wrote shortly after these two deaths; her letter showed her to be a worthy daughter of her father. Barberey does not know if Giorgio (Filicchi) is married. (Seton)'s Aunt (Mother) Catherine (Seton) for a long time had sent Barberey her recollections; she seemed the living relic of her saintly mother. Barberey is sorry about what (Seton) wrote of the health of his sister-in-law (Sarah Redwood Parrish Seton); the death of her child has broken her. Barberey asks (Seton) to express her sympathy to William (Seton). Barberey's husband has recovered and again enjoys society. Her uncle (Baron) de Corcelle will be 89 on June 2; he wrote some remarks after reading Count Hubner's "Une Annee de ma Vie." Barberey reads only what is useful to her work; the notes on her maternal family are finished, there remains what concerns her paternal family. She is deep in the period when her grandfather, Count Roederer played his role in politics, 1800 in France, 1807 and 1808 in Naples. He was a friend of Joseph Bonaparte. Barberey asks to be remembered to Robert's sister Elizabeth. She wrote to the Bishop of Vincennes; he has not answered.

Crowley, Mary Catherine: Ridgewood, New Jersey
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Crowley encloses the promised supplement of "A Chance Hour in a Railway Depot". Will not Hudson say a word editorially for the Catholic Fresh Air Fund? She recognized "A Heart History" as the story of her friend A Child of Mary who has brought to the service of the Virgin the practical energy inherited from her puritan ancestors.

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

Dorsey has not even seen Father (John A.) Zahm, (C.S.C.). They had Eleanor (C.) Donnelly one Sunday. It was a blow when Father Zahm did not come for Dorsey had counted on hearing all the news of Hudson and Notre Dame. She is beginning "Tom and Jerry", a short story, for Hudson. She sends three sample copies of "The World's Progress".

McGolrick, James, Bishop of Duluth: Duluth, Minn(esota)
 to (William J.) Onahan: (Chicago, Illinois)

Bishop McGolrick was glad to hear from Archbishop Ireland, that Onahan will take up the great question of the Congress. He thinks that Onahan's wife and daughter would be good company for Onahan on his travels. McGolrick leaves New York on May 16. He will be in Chicago on the 13th, however, on the way to New York. He is going to the old business of "priest-hunting" in Ireland, since he is anxious to get both priests and students. For that purpose he has to be in time for the closing of the various colleges. He hopes that Onahan can come to Ireland.

Seton, Father Robert: Jersey City Heights N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

The mail brought no word when Edwards was to come to claim Seton's donation to the Bishops' Memorial Hall. If Edwards comes while he is out, he should make himself at home. He sends an engraving of a friend whom Edwards may recognize. The cassock was make at Rome in 1866 and has been worn up to 1891. He sends also an obituary letter announcing the death of Patrick Filicchi whom Mother Seton often held in her arms at Pisa when he was an infant. He encloses an engraving of the martyr Archbishop Oliver Plunkett of Armagh. It was given to Seton by the Superioress of the Dominican convent at Drogheda.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

After Dwyer left there he wrote to Father (A. Russell) Nevins, (C.S.P.), prefect of the Paulists, to send him his manuscript marked Dante. The manuscript Nevins sent was the original of (Thomas) O'Gorman. Dwyer borrowed it, and O'Gorman was unable to get it back. The George Eliot lecture was doubtless a copy of Geo(rge) M. Johnston's lectures which he delivered there. Dwyer visited him at his Baltimore home. Dwyer was a novice in the Paulist community for two and a half years. Father (Augustine F.) Hewit was told at the time Dwyer entered the Congregation that he was an incorrigible liar. Stoddard could not ask (Father John A.) Zahm, (C.S.C.), to his rooms nor be more than frigidly civil to him. On a separate sheet marked "private": Dwyer writes that he is the guest of (Maurice Francis) Egan. Stoddard thinks Hudson should be on his guard. Dwyer walked off with one of Stoddard's photos.

Chatard, Bishop F(rancis) S(ilas)Bp.Vin.: Oldenburgh, Ind(iana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Edwards for the list of additions to his most commendable work, the Museum at Notre Dame. He read (Maurice F.) Egan's article in the May number of the North American and is in complete accord with all he says. The Catholic school is the absolute necessity. He hopes the prelate at the Vatican who was quoted at saying that parochial schools must not be made unless equal to the public schools was misrepresented.

Keane, Bishop John J. Rector:
Catholic University of America, Washington, D. C.
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edwards' idea of a grand central collection of all materials on the history of the Catholic Church in the United States is an admirable one. Keane is convinced that Edwards has done more towards the realization of this idea than any other person or institution. The testimony of John Gilmary Shea is conclusive on this point. No institution is likely to rival Notre Dame in the matter. The Catholic University must make as good a collection as it can of documents concerning the history of the church. But the collection at Notre Dame will remain unique. Edwards' proposition that Notre Dame should be the official and central archives must depend on the concerted action of the Bishops. They should decide if such archivium is desirable. The matter might be brought up at the annual meeting of the Archbishops in St. Louis.

Shea, John Gilmary: Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father P(atrick) Corrigan: (Hoboken, New Jersey)

Bishop Keane encloses this (no enclosure) but from his letter it is evident it is really a reply to Corrigan. Shea's work goes on but he must hunt up much. The history of a diocese has the date of its erection wrong. The author wrote without ever seeing the Bull.

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

The only "grip" which Mannix is suffering is that of poverty. Father (J.L.?) O'Neil, (O.P.) has written Mannix, but she has done nothing yet. She will have to wait 'til she sees the first number of "The Rosary". (Maurice Francis) Egan should do no unworthy work. Mannix has received another letter from the "Magazine of Poetry" saying they were about to publish a study of her writings. She is sending something which she thinks Hudson will not care for. She thinks Father (Bernard) Luebbermann would take it.

Winter, William: Staten Island, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: (Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

The pressure of work has prevented him from coming to St. Joseph's rectory. The dramatic season has been exceedingly busy and difficult. A new play, "Don Juan," is to come about May 18 and will be the last of the year. He hopes to have copies of "Gray Days and Gold" next week and will send one to Seton.

Guichainville, Metayer de, Metayer de Guichainville, Prof(esseur) le: New York, (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan

Except for a serious illness of his son, he would have written sooner and thanks Brownson for his reply to his letter enclosing the one from Leopold Delisle. The club library has Harisse's work on Columbus, published in Paris in 1884, and he has gone through the two volumes about the question of the letter of April 2, 1502, on which question Metayer de Guichainville gives his own conclusions.

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

Giesen's sister in Holland sent him two Dutch prayers which he hopes someone at the University will translate. The Czar allows but one religion in Russia; Catholics, Lutherans, and Jews are persecuted. The Orthodox Archbishop wanted to bring into his Greek Church a small Catholic village near Vilna, Lithuania. The moment he wanted to execute his plan he fell dead.

Winter, William: Staten Island, (New York)
 to (Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

He has (Seton)'s letter of the 9th; he had not the slightest intention to indicate by the use of the word "Romish", contempt for the Church. It will be Roman if the book goes to a second edition. He professes no creed himself, but has a deep respect for the beliefs of others.

She has several journals of Mother Catherine (Seton) written while abroad about 1830. Sister knows that W(illia)m Seton intended to publish a life of his aunt; she presumes he would be glad of their perusal. She asks Seton to mention this or give her W(illia)m's address. Sister was taken with la grippe the day of Mother Catherine's death.

de Burgh, H.: Dublin, Ireland
 to Henry (F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

The late Tho(ma)s McNevin was a gifted Irishman, the bosom friend and fellow laborer of (Daniel) O'Connell, and the author of "Confiscation of Ulster", "IrishVolunteers 1782", "Sheil's Speeches, with Life". He was the originator of the "Library of Ireland" series, which has done so much for Irish Catholic History. Some time ago his only daughter, with a young family, was reduced to want, owing to the loss from ill health of her husband's position. De Burgh has been trying to make up something to rescue her from poverty, and besides what he got in Ireland, he received the following from America: (James) Cardinal Gibbons, 5; Archbishop (Patrick J.) Ryan, 5; Eugene Kelly, 5; J. A. Donohoe, 5; Bishop (John J.) Keane, 3; Bishop S(tephen) V. Ryan, 5; Bishop (Patrick T.) O'Reilly, 3; Bishop (Patrick) Manchue, 3; Bishop (Matthew) Harkins, 3; Archbishop (Patrick W.) Riordan, 3. He encloses one of the last letters (John Henry) Cardinal Newman wrote; as it is a very precious relic, he would like it returned.

Elder, Archbishop William Henry: Cincinnati, Ohio
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

He wrote concerning the three portraits and Father (John M.) Mackey took charge. The one they kept is preferable to the others expressing much better the Archbishop (John Baptist Purcell) when he was in his vigor. Elder would like to hear from Edwards concerning the letters of Purcell which he intrusted to him. Father (Frank A.) O'Brien of Kalamazoo spoke of getting from Edwards some written by Bishop (Caspar H.) Borgess. Elder would not part with any unless he first sees what they are.

Dormer, James H.: Buffalo, New York
 to (William J.) Onahan: (New York, New York)

He sends this letter in care of Judge O'Brien, New York. He had hoped that Onahan would be reelected to the Chicago Comptrollership. He doesn't know how much Onahan had been identified with Cregier in the activities of the campaign, but suspected Onahan was more onlooker than partisan. Dormer thinks that Washburn would have found it a necessity to retain Onahan, not only for the service Onahan would give, but because the better people demanded it. Dormer urges Onahan to take a four months rest, since the work of the Catholic Congress will not be retarded by the holiday. In the meeting of the Committee, Dormer has no suggestion———Judge O'Brien and Onahan could talk matters over. Since the meeting depends upon Onahan it should be called at his convenience. Dormer sends some news clippings about the affair between Bishop (Bernard) McQuaid and Father (Patrick) Cronin and comments on it. He hopes Onahan can come to Niagara. Mrs. Dormer has been ill. Her father died recently. (No enclosures)

Jannes, Claudio: Paris, (France)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Jannes has just received Brownson's translation of Tarducci's Life of Columbus and is much indebted to him for the present. Whatever Brownson says of the style of the author, Jannes much prefers to read the work in his English than in the best Italian. He congratulates Brownson upon having offered to the American public so useful a work, just at the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. It is a new service to the Catholic cause. Jannes was asked by some Italian friends to be present at a Catholic Congress of social science, which will meet at Genoa in October, 1892, precisely in order to celebrate the memory of Columbus and he would like to have Brownson come to Europe for this occasion. This summer he will go to Texas, where his eldest son last year bought a farm near Abilene, and in September will make a trip through Mexico. He would like to pay Brownson a visit in Detroit if he has the time. Baron de Ravignan and Viscount des Bassyres de Richemont told him how kind Brownson's reception was. They were very favorably impressed that the son was so worthy of the name of his illustrious father. Brownson's pamphlet on the irreligion of the Craft of Masonry is excellent. Jannes was much interested in that subject some years ago, and it has lost nothing of its actuality in Europe or America. But if Jannes passes through Charleston, he would not pay a visit to (Albert) Pike. He sends Brownson a discourse on the social question.

He is writing an article on the history of Fordham College and would like an account of the opening June 24, 1841 and thought a notice may be in the Journal.

 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

In looking over some old papers he found the enclosed photo of Archbishop (John Ireland of St. Paul) taken after his ordination. There is not another one of them in existence. Boland will never forget his last trip to Notre Dame. The fate that befell the floor of the Bishop's corridor on that night often amuses him.

Shea, John G(ilmary): Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father J(ames) H. McGean: (New York, New York)

He became so weak and dizzy travelling to the new seminary grounds yesterday that he had to return home. He received a telegram from Father (Jacob A.) Walter that he had telegraphed to McGean, and Shea advises McGean to use the permission granted. Time must not be wasted on preliminaries. The Archbishop must be invited to preside. If McGean thinks best, they can hold the (Mary E.) Surratt matter until a June meeting, Shea believes it would tell more to use all their artillery now. (P.S.) There is no heading to Card(inal) Gibbons' article. Shea has inserted "Reminiscences of North Carolina."

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

Stoddard encloses the verses he meant to send before now. Last Monday (Theodore) Dwight drove out and took Stoddard away for a couple of hours. They went to see the statue by St. Gaudens erected at the grave of Mrs. Henry Adams, wife of their friend, the historian (Henry Adams). Stanford White, the architect, says the statue is worthy of Michael Angelo. On Tuesday, Stoddard went down to spend the night with Dwight, who is now back in Boston. Kate Field is most enlivening. Stoddard cannot see her often; her rooms are swarming all the time.

Flick, Lawrence F.: Philad(elphia), P(ennsylvani)a
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Flick thanks Brownson for his efforts and sends a scale of prices. When they first tried to secure advertisements, the price was $25 a page; but the agents would not take the work at less than $50 a page, and so they went up to that figure. So far they have got about $700 worth of ads. Some of the firms in Detroit that advertise in similar publications are Peter Dedricks, Jr., Van Leyen & Co., L. F. Kilroy & Co., Anthony Gsebold, John Finn, Academy of the Sacred Heart, Detroit College. They offer an exceptionally good medium, with a circulation of 6000, every copy of which will be well placed. Flick is preparing a list of Catholic names which will probably contain all the most influential Catholics of the United States; and to those people the Records will be sent gratuitously, with a view of interesting them in the work of the Society. As the list of names is carefully prepared through the assistance of members and others in different parts of the country, it will be the best list of Catholic names in existence.

Heydenfelt, Jr., S.: Washington, D. C.
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

(William) Richards of this city, who met Brownson at the Catholic Congress several years ago, gave Heydenfelt access to his library and called his attention to "Spirit Rapper, An Authobiography", in connection with a subject the latter has been investigating— electro-magnetizing the use of the galvanic battery, through distributing subjects and others; the system so largely practiced in India and among the Druids and other secret orders of the United, who have what is termed spiritual governments, like the one among the Mormons, a system by which citizens not belonging to any secret orders are magnetized, connected with members of these orders, and whose minds can be read and thoughts transferred. Heydenfelt has explained the subject in a pamphlet treating the methods of electro-magnetizing and hypnotism, entitled "The Unison of the Conscious Force", a copy of which he sent to the Secretary of State of Michigan. His object in visiting Washington is to examine the books in the office of the Surgeon General and in the Congressional and other libraries on these subjects and kindred ones. So few know the extent to which electro-magnetizing is carried on in the U. S. that his object is to explore it, make known its dangers, and to move the attention of the people so that they will demand legislation in the states and in Congress. He would like to have placed at his disposal any memoranda of (Orestes A. Brownson) on the subject. He has heard that magnetism or hypnotism was practiced on a large scale during the late war between France and Germany. He asks for aid in verifying what he has heard and read of its use in France in 1848. He will remain here several weeks, then visit the South before returning to his law practice in San Francisco.

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

Mannix thinks Hudson made a mistake with regard to the Christmas verses and sent the wrong one, which Mannix returns. She sends her translation of "La Golondrina". Mannix has been complimented on her poem on "Our Lady of Good Counsel". "The Catholic World" had another silly story in the May number. Will her "Golden Jubilee" be ready soon? John.(Mannix) tells her that "Debusses, S.J." is on the title page of the book from which Father (John) Reynolds reads to them each evening. There is no devotion there - less with priests than with people. Colonel (Elmer) Otis declaims against the existing order of things.

 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Estelle (Huffer) was quite worn out from their trip and was laid up for several days. Edwards can imagine the joy and happiness that greeted them on their return. They regret that their trip was so hurried and will remember with pleasure the two happy days at Notre Dame; many times he has sung the praises of the beautiful university to his friends. He asks if Edwards heard of the deaths of Tim Carney and his daughter of Waukesaha.

Sally and he arrived in Paris on the 14th. They saw Sally Lee and Sam(uel) Parrish off for Havre. W(illiam) will never forget 1856, the year he went to Illinois. What a dreamer he was then! Perhaps their isolated life on their 150 acres at Cragdon may have accentuated their idiosyncracies. An old Munich friend Henry Ing(?) called yesterday. (Seton) is always to remember W(illiam) to Sands; he never hears from Jevons. They will see Robert in September.

On reaching home Shea found a paper by Father J(acob) A. Walter of Washington who attended (Mary E.) Surratt. Walter fails to get it printed. Shea thinks it would be a second strong feature and has asked Walter to telegraph McGean if he consents to this use. The title states that Walter's part on the occasion has been misrepresented and that Walter seeks to present the facts. He suggests title for the article.

Dorsey, A(nna) H(anson): Washington, (District of Columbia)
 to Father D(aniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Why did Dorsey's last letter pain Hudson? Dorsey has a letter copied from an autograph letter of Columbus for Com(modore ) Gray of New York City. Gray presented the copy to his sister, Mrs. Harris, Dorsey's friend, who allowed Dorsey to copy it. Dorsey hopes Hudson will put something in the Ave Maria about the monument to be unveiled to the memory of Leonard Calvert by the State of Maryland. The opening prayer is to be offered by Cardinal Gibbons and the closing one by Bishop Paret of the Episcopal Church. On the face of the pedestal nothing is said about Calvert's being a Catholic. Dorsey cannot remember the year Father (Armandus) Charbonnel came to the Seminary in Baltimore to spend a year in the study of English. She thinks it was between 1840 and 1845. It was from Charbonnel that they first heard of (Maria Alphonse) Ratisbonne's conversion. Charbonnel received letters from his relatives the De la Ferronnays telling him all about it. It was through Madam (Marie Charlotte) de la Ferronnays that he was induced to put on the miraculous medal that caused his conversion. Ellen O'Donnelly(!) (Eleanor C. Donnelly?) and her two sisters spent a day with them a short time ago. Dorsey found them bright, clever and interesting.

Robinson had to stay three days in Pittsburg and over Sunday with his friend Father (F. A.) Spencer in N(ew) Y(ork). Notre Dame was a surprise to Robinson. The Sunday he was in New York he assisted at vespers in the Paulist Church. The custom is being introduced in the East to have all the congregation answer the responses at mass and vespers. They even do it at the Cathedral in Springfield.

Heydenfelt, Jr., S.: Washington, D. C.
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Heydenfelt thanks Brownson for the information of his letter of the 28th and is now reading volume 16 of Brownson's Works. As suggested by (William) Richards, he asks what priest gave (Orestes A.) Brownson instructions in the Catholic belief, the man he associated with in the latter part of his life and who Richards thinks now lives in New Jersey. He is particularly anxious to verify the localities where those "mesmeric circles" were formed during the revolutions of 1848, just before they broke out, and the names of the magnetizers—French, Italian, Swiss and American—who took part in the "peaceful agitation". Perhaps some of Brownson's correspondence may throw some light on the subject. If there is much detail and reference to that history in any of his letters, he will visit Detroit, if the letters are made available to him.

Scammon, E(liakim) Parker: Audubon Park, New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

After waiting an opportunity to visit Seton, he is compelled to write instead of going. His health has been miserable. He must confess he is old. He was disappointed that his quondam friends did not act effectually in favor of Seton's nephew (John Foster Seton?). McKinley was presumably so engrossed in his "Bill" but he thought Kennedy would do what he could to secure the appointment. The old Army friends who have died are General (William T.) Sherman, General (William) Stokes, and Colonel Kendrick. They were classmates, each about 80 years of age. Stokes was a very dear friend. Scammon is 75. He was Chief of Artillery under Rosecrans and Buell; his reward Brevet Brigadier General and total blindness.

He is sorry not to have answered Brownson sooner. Brownson's portrait is splendid, and he hopes Brownson received his. The Italian government has nominated a committee to collect and study all the documents regarding Columbus. His work on the Cabotos is fairly well ahead. He asks about the sale of the translation in America.
