Spalding, John L(ancaster) Bishop of Peoria: Peoria, (Illinois)
 to William J. Onahan: (Chicago, Illinois)

The Bishop incloses a letter from Father Devos. The first or second day of July would do for the meeting for the Educational Exhibit. The commencement will be over and college presidents could be on hand. Onahan is asked to see Father Higgins and if he thinks favorably of the date the call should be issued, and if proper, with his (the Bishop's) name signed on it. (No enclosure.)

Spaunhorst, H(enry) J.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to W(illiam) J. Onahan: Chicago, Ill(inoi)s

He is glad to hear that the project of the next Congress is meeting with favor by the Ordinaries. The German Am(erican) Priester Verein is accused of being the author of the Luzern Petition recently presented to the (Pope) by (Peter Paul) Cahensly of Lemberg, the Secretary of Raphaels Verein, (Leo House), N(ew) Y(ork), for German immigrants. Spaunhorst was in Wisconsin and Minnesota last month. He had no idea that the national feeling of the German clergy was so intense, and that they seem "to have it in" for Archbishop (John) Ireland. They blame the latter for keeping up the fight. Spaunhorst believes quietness will bring harmony whereas agitation will disharmonize.

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

After receiving Brownson's letter of May 28, Guichainville hastened to send, last Monday, the new Catholic Club Illustrated to Brownson's father-in-law. He should have received it by now. Guichainville has resumed correspondence with another party in Paris about the letter of Columbus without speaking of the extraordinary answer he received from his former Norman colleague, Mr. Leopold Delisle of the Institute. He will see whether from this source they will obtain more compact explanations. If so, he will inform Brownson. The possession of this document has caused him five years of boredom and coveting for account of a third party in a certain circle of his American students. Since the first of the year he came across a person, at a school for ladies of high New York society, whose husband is the author, Lawrence Hutton, who recommended that he contact the librarian of the Lenox library concerning the matter and perhaps entrust him with the document, which is lacking from the library's collection originating from the Samuel Barlow sale. Guichainville wrote to this librarian using his recommendation, but the librarian, not pleased by the way Guichainville wrote, no doubt, did not answer. Guichainville has since had bad thoughts concerning the Barlow letters which he believes have the same source as those in his possession. Tarducci writes in his book that the second packet of documents "colonibus" is with the minister of foreign affairs at Paris. That would explain the great and lively interest Barlow took in Guichainville's letter. Though he saw Barlow's collection several times, Barlow never mentioned the letters of Columbus which he possessed. Not till after Barlow's death did he learn of them, from his sales' receipts published in the New York papers. He hopes someday these mysteries will come to light. If before then the Catholic Club should desire it, he would like to deposit it with the club, which can expose it in a gallery of the new building. He asks Brownson what he thinks of this. When the late Father Ehring, S.J., was alive, he wanted to find an arrangement of this kind for the college of New York, but at that time, Guichainville and Ehring thought this unique and secret letter was at the treasury of Genoa, and dreaded international complications.This is what paralysed the matter. Now things are different. The semi-public exhibit seems in danger of seizure or haggling. He will take this plan up again when the desired knowledge is available. Guichainville hopes Brownson will answer this so that he can reply with another chatty letter.

(Mullany, F.S.C.), Brother Azarias: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Brother would still prefer the volume issued from the Ave Maria press. The day he sent the verses, he met Father O'Neill (James L? O'Neil, O.P.) of the Rosary Magazine, who insisted on keeping them for the July number of the Rosary.

Katzer, Archbishop Elect F(rederick) X(avier): Milwaukee, (Wisconsin)
 to Archbishop Mich(ael) Aug(ustine) Corrigan: New York, N(ew) Y(ork)

Katzer sends his two Pastorals, throwing light on his views and position in the present agitated affair. His name has been brought into connection with the Luzerne Memorial unjustly. Archbishop (John) Ireland has tried to make the public believe that Katzer was in it. If Ireland is opposed to Katzer, he should at least avoid scandal. It looks bad to do what Ireland has done.

He has been confirmed at Rome in his office as Provincial there (Argentina). Hill has been pressed to write something poetic for the "Rosary Magazine". He proposes to get off the story of his own conversion.

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

He hoped to send Corrigan a volume for the New Year but the printer delayed. The third volume is in the bindery. He has done considerable on the fourth volume. He did some research on the collections of Professor (James F.) Edwards at Notre Dame University. He also did research in the Baltimore archives. He indexed all facts under dioceses. He began writing in the beginning of the year, and adds research material as he goes along.

Shea, J(ohn) G(ilmary): (Elizabeth, New Jersey)
 to Father (Patrick) Corrigan: (Hoboken, New Jersey)

Extract from a letter to Corrigan of (June?) Jan(uary) 7, 1891: Shea has done considerable work on the fourth volume. He took many notes while on his visit to Notre Dame to get the run of Professor Edwards' collection. (Extract from a letter) of May 5, 1891: Shea inserted a statement in (The Catholic) News which Corrigan has seen. This statement leaves Shea free to withdraw whenever Corrigan finds it necessary. Last week he did much work at Baltimore, and today he has documents coming from Rome. The first half of his volume is half done. He got volumes I and II done by night work about 25 hours a week. Now with Corrigan's help he can devote 55 hours a week to the work. The connection with the News helps him in his work. He is anxious to complete the work. (In the handwriting of James F. Edwards).

Curtis, William E.: Washington, D.C.
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan

Curtis has been greatly interested in reading Brownson's most excellent translation of Tarducci's Life of Columbus and would like to know where he obtained his illustrations. He is making a collection of portraits of Columbus, and pictures in which he appears as a figure, for the world's fair, and would like, if possible, to get Brownson's originals. The imagines some of them are in the University of Notre Dame at South Bend, or at least he has seen something very like them there.

1891 Jun. 12
Brownson, H(enry) F.: (Detroit, Michigan)
 to John A. Mueller: (Detroit, Michigan)

Dr. Kaiser had led Brownson to hope that he would arrange for Brownson to meet Mueller to have a talk, but his going abroad definitely postpones that. At any rate he wishes to thank the "Struime"(?), among other things, for publishing the Holy Father's (Pope Leo XIII) last Encyclical. It is rather provoking for those who don't read German to be told, as in the "Michigan Catholic" yesterday, that the Encyclical has arrived and in due course of time will reach the bishops through their metropolitans and finally appear in the papers. Brownson is as much amused as grieved at the discussion arising out of the (Peter P.) Cahensly Memorial. The poor Americans count for nothing and Brownson asks when the Italians, Canadians, etc., get their bishops, will they not appoint one to look out for the Americans. The presumption of the Irish in assuming that they are the Americans and all who do not speak English are foreigners is disgusting. In language they come near the old population. But in habits, manners, morals, opinions, he asks what kin they have with the old Americans. And of hypocrisy, fraud, and every kind of dishonesty is growing rapidly among Americans, he asks to whom is that growth to be ascribed. Such things were scarcely known before the Celtic laborers were imported to build the canals and railroads. Anglo-Saxons are of Teutonic descent and practise and love open, manly action—the opposite of Celtic trickery and underhand dealing. Our Celtic friends are conscious of their un-American character and therefore are noisily proclaiming their loyalty, and when they attempt to show themselves American, their method is merely to join in some fanatical movement. They claim they are only asserting fair play for Americans; but by Americans they mean Irish and descendants of Irish. They are perfectly willing to treat Germans, etc., in a spirit of equality, provided the Germans will let the Irish take the lead, fill all the positions, and consent to follow and support them. Their idea of equality is "One man's as good as another: faith! and a good deal better", the Irishman being the better. If the German Catholic papers were in the English language, there would be some hope for correcting the evil; and unless the German Catholic influence is made to bear more directly on English-speaking Catholics, the evil must go on increasing.

Cassilly, S.J., Francis: Woodstock, M(arylan)d
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's offer to begin sending the Ave Maria is acceptable to Cassilly. Father (E. V.) Boursaud, (S.J.), warned him that his explanations in the sketch on Taney might not prove suitable to the Ave Maria.

Benziger Brothers: New York, (New York)

They regret Hudson feels injured because they have adopted stories from the Ave Maria for their New Third Reader. In the new edition of their Reader they will say "Adapted from the Ave Maria."

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

Scammon has just read Seton's kind letter. He was moved by Seton's address which he read aloud to his wife and their daughter Mrs. Jones. Seton's assurance that their failure was no cause for embarrassment gave Scammon great pleasure. Scammon is disposed to feel that McKinley's being out had something to do with it. Perhaps it is not too late yet. The Jones family is now established in Audubon Park. Their house is on the hill above Mr. Hoyt's cottage.

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

He has received Robert's letter of May 23 and the "Ave Marias"; he was glad to read the notice of Aunt Kate (Mother Catherine Seton). He has had a letter from (Thomas Seton) Jevons written off Queenstown. W(illiam) remembers how he and their father joined Robert and their mother in Brattleboro at Mr. Hollister's in 1847. Sally and W(illiam) are going to the Luxembourg Gallery with Miss Horsey of Maryland; she came over to place her sister at the Sacre Coeur, Orleans. Mrs. Tuck, to whose reception they went, was one of the last to eat buckwheat cakes at Madame Busque's new place near the Madeleine shortly before the German war.

Riordan, Archbishop P(atrick) W.: San Francisco, Cal(ifornia)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The beautiful picture of Father (Junipero) Serra reached him. It is most artistic, worthy of the pencil of (Luigi) Gregori. He will treasure it as a rare gift. He hopes to see Edwards this fall as he is going east and will drop off at the College.

Ryan, Archbishop (Patrick) J.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They have some pictures at the seminary that need retouching. They can give (Paul) Wood a few weeks work. Ryan will see if the family who desires the painting of St. Joseph think well of (Luigi) Gregori's painting it in Europe.

1891 June 14
(Shea, John Gilmary): Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

It distresses him to read such despondent words from Edwards. He spoke to Edwards as he would to no living man. In order to complete his history he must sacrifice his library. The New York acceptance of his offer was made promptly. To obtain 500 subscribers ought to be easy. He asks if Edwards could take up the project if they abandon it. Shea's own credit requires him to keep the U. S. Catholic Historical Society alive for at least a year. In the matter of collections Edwards is alone. He would like no better home for his collection than Memorial Hall. He sometime feared that Edwards had little sympathy and support at Notre Dame but banished the thought as a delusion. He asks if Edwards can sell him certain newspapers and in time get them back with his whole collection. (Part missing. Enclosed are two notes in Edwards' hand apparently addressed to Miss Isabel Shea.)

Edwards saw her father in New York and he requested him not to send the papers until he made out a list of all his needs. Shea said he gave Archbishop (Michael) Corrigan of New York until Sept. 1 to accept his offer and if he refused, Shea would give the library to Notre Dame on the same terms. Edwards was to give up teaching for a year and devote himself to the disposal of the work. A Jesuit father informed Edwards that his order was indebted to Miss Shea for the library. — Shea never sent Edwards a list of his needs as he promised.

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

To complete his work in the first edition, Shea must sacrifice his library. Acceptance of his New York offer was made promptly. He hopes to get 500 subscribers to his work. Can Notre Dame take up the project if New York abandons it. There should be 500 potential subscribers at Notre Dame, and then Notre Dame would get his collection. He does not want it to go to Philadelphia. He will keep the U(nited) S(tates) Catholic Historical Society alive for at least a year; he made himself president. The Society has no funds; Catholics in New York are indifferent. His library must support him; he will soon have no means of support except The (Catholic) News. He mentions certain Catholic newspapers, published before 1852, that he needs for his work; can (Edwards) sell his collections to finance his work. No one has responded to his appeals. If the Society becomes unable to continue publication of the Magazine he will resign from office. Mrs. Shea is very weak, and he suffers himself from anxiety and sleepless nights.

Heuser, Father H(ermann) J.: Overbrook, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Heuser's attitude in the Bartolo controversy has caused some displeasure among those who had endorsed the book. When the news came from Rome that the book had been placed on the Index the humiliation added fuel to the smothered flame. Although Father (Joseph) Schroeder was a little harder than Heuser should have desired, there was ample material for pointing out errors. Most of their editors are not alive to the danger of liberalism. Father (Aloysius) Sabetti, S.J., wrote to Heuser that he was glad the book of Bartolo has been put on the Index.

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

He thanks Brownson for his letter of the 15th. Tarducci seems sober and willing to bring some light to bear from his government's commissions. He sends two letters to Brownson who, if he will read between the lines, will be able to trace the course of the Italian Government upon learning of the letter of Columbus at New York. He thanks Brownson for Mr.Curtis' address, and will contact him concerning his preparations for the Chicago Exposition. He sent Brownson's prospectus to two French friends interested in American history. He has not heard from the quarter in France to which he wrote several weeks ago. If he hears anything he will let Brownson know. P.S. Guichainville asks Brownson how long a time, according to French, American, or international law, must elapse to assure one of the complete ownership of a document deposited with him when the one depositing refuses to comply with the demands of the depositor.

She received (Seton)'s two photographs, his letter and the picture. The account of (Seton)'s venerable aunt's (Mother Catherine Seton?) engagement is most edifying and interesting. Halkett has been so busy moving. The influenza is raging terribly there and causes many deaths. She plans to go to Scotland and Germany in August. She hopes some day to visit the Phelps Stokes (?) and will come to see (Seton).

McHugh has been longing to be at Notre Dame and he decided to write to Hudson about the matter before making any application to Father (Thomas E.) Walsh, (C.S.C.).

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

W(illiam) had already read Robert's address in the "Freeman". American Catholics are purposely kept in the background; it was as much as "our people" could do to tolerate (Orestes A.) Brownson. Tomorrow, Sally and W(illiam) are going to St. Germain with James Parrish and a young lady from Cleveland. (E)Liz(abeth Seton) will soon be in Europe. He has written to Harry (Seton) about Cragdon. If Robert had $1000 per year from the estate he might make another trip to Europe; Harry would be more comfortable. Cragdon has been now about 50 years in the family. Father (Augustine F.) Hewit's article "The Warfare of Science" does not impress W(illiam) as clinching; Professor (Andrew Dickson) White's articles are not easy to answer. W(illiam) often wonders that natural science was not taken up by himself years ago.

Marchal, Marie: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The stations are en route since yesterday. They trust the Reverend Master of Novices will find them suitable. Marchal added a small chromo for Hudson. The crucifix belonged to a fervent Catholic, Victor Marziou, who went through France and Belgium exhibiting it. He kept it till his death last year at Lourdes. Together with the notice on the crucifix Hudson will receive an account of the opening of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

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

Guichainville, the librarian of the Catholic Club of New York, wrote a respectful letter asking Henry Harisse for some light on the matter (of the Columbus document). Harisse returned the letter and calling card, postage due, having scrawled across the first page an unsigned note to the effect that Guichainville should address himself to the forger in the Penitentiary of San Guilano Saliceto and beg (him) to cease to haunt the world with his lie and fraud. Guichainville thinks Harisse a boor and believes he recognizes in him the individual who inserted in the Nouvelliste de Rouen, August 19, 1888, the note saying that there had just been sold in New York for $2000, a purported original letter of Columbus, of April 2, 1502, which is really a forgery of the one guarded at the Genoa municipal palace. Guichainville wonders how Harisse can speak with authority about a document he has probably never seen. Guichainville wants to know of the name of this forger in San Guilano. Guichainville's forwarders, the Messrs. Savioli, organ makers, and Mr. Dal Molin, their assignee, write that this document was found among Molin's family papers. When be became doubtful of the title of ownership he became very careful and did not want to put it up for sale. Mr. Gunther of Chicago, who desired it for his collection, was put, by Guichainville, in touch with the Gavioli house, which had great hopes for the sale of its autograph. Guichainville still searches after five years to discover a fraud or theft. He has incurred many expenses in these searches in the single desire to serve science and truth. He did not think such conduct would merit him the name the over-excited Harisse aims at him. Harisse's way of answering might merit some care from Prof(esso)r Pasteur, to whom Guichainville ought to have recommended Harisse. Guichainville does not recognize in Harisse the qualities of an expert in a matter which he has neither seen nor possessed nor studied.

Father Hogan states that Count de Mun would like to receive an invitation to attend the coming Catholic Congress, even though he speaks no English. If Onahan would like to meet the Count, Hoguet could give Onahan a letter of introduction to Father Hogan, at the Sulpician seminary in Paris, who could in turn introduce Onahan to the Court.

Shea, John G(ilmary): Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (Richard R. Elliott): Detroit, (Michigan)

Shea is so greatly indebted to Elliott for early Michigan history that he does not know how to thank him. Elliott's first installment reads with great interest. He has just put in order his notes for Detroit 1843-1852 and 1852-1865. He has several volumes of the Western Catholic. He needs the Western Catholic Register, 1842 and Vindicator 1853-1860 and asks if Elliott can help him. His volumes of Catholic newspapers now number 560 and he wants more. Has anyone collected documents or materials for the episcopate of Bishop (Peter Paul) Lefevere? Father (Frank) O'Brien's sketches are good but do give details. (Elliott's bookplate is attached)

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

Heydenfel it has expressed the Mirville book, some of which he found useful. On the subject of the use of Mesmerism during the French Revolution, he will refer to Abbe Darruel's "Illustrating the History of Jacobinism", 4 volumes, 1797, to J. J. Mounier, a member of the Constitutional Assembly who wrote "On the influence Ascribed to the Philosophers and Free Masons and the Illumines during the French Revolution", to Louis Blanc's History, to Du Potet's "Journal", and to other sources. His object is to call attention to the use of electro-, agenetism, hypnotism, spiritualism, etc., as practised by different secret orders, and by a number of Protestant congregations and other heretical sects. If the Government remains inactive in the matter, the only hope is to make its dangers known to the people.

He will probably end the week there fishing or clambaking. Then they drift toward Boston Bay. His address until further notice will be Harry Gillig, 611 Fifth Ave(nue), New York.

(Hill), C.P., Father Edmund: Buenos Aires, (Argentina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hill sends an article. A letter from Rome gave Hill the permission he had asked to send contributions to the Ave Maria without first submitting them to the Provincial's inspection. Their Father General only insists that the editor of the magazine revise the composition and share responsibility for it. As Father Thomas Stefanini, (C.P.), adds, this is the rule with all properly conducted periodicals which have ecclesiastical approbation. Father Fidelis (Stone, C.P.) was to arrive in the United States early in June and remain two to four months.
