Kennedy, Father Thomas F.: (Overbrook, Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

Kennedy was away and is late in answering. He asked to be excused from lecturing this season especially on a difficult subject. He senses the difficulties of the subject and the damage if it were treated badly since it is quite new to him. He does not have the time for the thorough investigation since he has engaged himself to take the places of two priests. Next summer he will be free and pledges himself to do what he can.

Mosher, W(arren) E.: Syracuse, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

Mosher acknowledges McMahon's letter from New London. The tickets were ordered sent to (George Parsons) Lathrop early this week. He will send some to Father (Thomas) McMillan and Father (Patrick) Halpin, (S.J.). There is no danger that they will commit themselves to a permanent site. A move is on foot to visit the St. Laurence site and have Gov. Flouer preside. Mr. Moran reports $100 from Jas. McMahon, president of the Bank of Commerce. He will be glad to see the program.

Pallen, Condé B.: St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to Father Jos(eph) H. McMahon: (New York, New York)

Pallen will be pleased to give a lecture on Socialism and the Church at Catholic Summer School. Second week in August will suit him well. Will forward a synopsis in a few days. He has three lectures on Dante's Divina Commedia,once delivered in a public course at St. Louis University. They are at McMahon's service if he thinks them acceptable for Summer School. He notes this address.

Searle, C.S.P., Father G(eorge) M.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

In answer to McMahon's letter of today he says that August 11 will suit as well as the other dates. He cannot send a formal synopsis, since he does not prepare a lecture or sermon that way. If he did he would not keep it. The idea is to present the case of what is commonly called plurality of worlds and show that no conclusions of science can make any real difficulty for religion.

Sheedy, Father Morgan M.: (Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

Title of sermon is "The Church and Intellectual Development" with text from Prov.ix,1. He will try to be there the Sunday but must obtain permission of his bishop and a priest to take his place. He thanks McMahon for the invitation. He has received McMahon's letter from New London and he will invite the heads of the committees named. Pittsburgh will supply students but the contingent fund slow. He is sorry that (George Parsons) L(athrop) got back into gloomy state but he thinks this is because of his great anxiety for success that makes him discouraged. He hopes McMahon had a pleasant visit in New London.

Keedy, Sam(ue)l H., M. D.: Baltimore, M(arylan)d
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

For six years during the lifetime of Father (Isaac T.) Hecker, Keedy was his special and general agent for the Catholic World and increased its circulation several thousands. About 1882 he called upon Brownson. He was introduced by letter of Hecker to every bishop in the U. S. Since 1886 he has been, until 18 months ago, by appointment of President (Grover) Cleveland U. S. Consul at Rheims, France. He applies to Brownson to make a tour of the country as special agent for Brownson's Works, listing his qualifications, experiences, and preferred terms, asking to hear from Brownson. He was formerly a physician and assistant surgeon in the United States Army, but ill health caused him to abandon the medical profession.

(Sands), Louis (Joseph): Pachawaxen, Penn(sylvania)
 to Monsignor Robert (Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

(Sands) will go to see (Seton) on Tuesday and they can decide on a seacoast resort in which to spend a fortnight. He sympathizes with (Seton) very much on his isolated position. All society in America is a mere travesty on the name. (Seton) has made some mistakes among his own family relations but they have treated him with neglect. No one but Scrymset can entertain (Seton). Temple Prime and the Jays live out of the way and have ceased to entertain. Prime is too poor and so are the rest of them. The Irish are a rough people; (Seton) could make himself so popular among them if he chose, that he would be carried on their shoulders right up to the cardinalate.

Zahm, C.S.C., Father J(ohn) A.: Nantucket, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

He has McMahon's letter of June 20. He has already blocked out a course of six lectures according to their conversation at Notre Dame and will try to have them ready for next summer. He lists the subjects of the six lectures. He asks how they suit McMahon and for suggestions of how long and whether they are to be popular or to an audience of scholars. He will do all in his power to make the course on Science and Religion interesting and instructive.

(Brophy, John P.): Point Pleasant, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

He asks pardon for his delay in answering McMahon's of June 28. He has been ill. He sends the points proposed to be covered in the two lectures but if he can be excused from this year he will be grateful. He has been ill and has two strange boys to care for during the summer. At the latest meeting of the Council he understood that McMahon had men for the miscellaneous course and that he could hope to be excused. If McMahon cannot excuse him, he will be on hand. It would be a great delight if Father McMahon and Father (Patrick) Halpin would be their guests. (Letter incomplete.)

Mullany, Father John F.: Syracuse, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

McMahon knows that (Warren E.) Mosher has been there where he addressed the children at the closing of the Academy. They raised a flag given by Mr. Belden. Friday Mullany had a meeting of representative Catholics, including about 100 public school teachers. Mosher and Brother Azarias (Patrick Francis Mullany) gave short addresses taken down by Miss Henley. They formed committees of various parishes who will distribute tickets and literature. Yesterday Mosher left for Rochester to meet a delegation selected by Committeeman O'Grady. This evening he will address a group in Buffalo. Mullany and Brother Azarias will visit these two cities later that week. He is keeping Brother Azarias busy. If McMahon changes the prospectus he should correct Mullany's position in the council. Brother Azarias should be added as moderator. The movement is growing and he trusts that New York will send a large delegation to New London. McMahon knows about the trip to Plattsburg. P.S. Brother Azarias and Sisters send their regards.

Ryan, Archbishop P(atrick) J(ohn): Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

Ryan hopes to see (Corrigan) on Thursday. He asks if (Corrigan) will go down to Cape May for a few days in July or August. He returns the papers in relation to the late Father Hayes and the (North) American College (in Rome). Ryan thinks the passage in Archbishop (John) Ireland's memorial relative to persecution should be thoroughly verified as so many doubt it. Ryan wrote Cardinal (James) Gibbons that he believed Ireland would do anything short of mortal sin to attain his ends. Ryan has not heard from the Cardinal, but notices the Mirror is very quiet and reserved on Roman questions recently. They did not charge Mrs. Johnson for any expenses for the trial.

 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

He received McMahon's note. He has been absent from home lately because of his uncertain health. He will do what he can to stir up the people in the neighboring city and try to be at the Summer School himself. He wishes he could give more help.

Vallette, Marc F.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

McMahon is very kind to rope Vallette in for two lectures instead of one. He has delayed answering because he has been busy. He tried Saturday to find out the scope of the lectures. He relates a story to illustrate the little that he learned. He met Father (Patrick) Halpin who helped him outline his subject "Early American Missions." This was familiar ground to him some years ago but he has lost the chronological run of the missions. He sends a general synopsis which McMahon can fix to suit himself.

Kelly, Margaret Hughes: South Orange, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Kelly is glad the articles reached their destination. The donor of the missal was Eliza McBride of a bitter Presbyterian family. On her conversion her brothers deprived her of the income left to her by her father. Later she moved to Rome with another convert (Ella B.) Edes, a niece or granddaughter of the Episcopal Bishop (Jonathan Mayhew) Wainright of New York. McBride died a few years ago. Edes was for many years the Roman correspondent of "The New York Freeman's Journal".

Spaulding, O(liver) L(yman): Washington, D.C.

Referring to Ford's request, he encloses a communication addressed to the Collection of Customs at the port of New York requesting a revenue cutter permit may be granted to Ford and the Rev. Dr. Thomas O'Gorman to meet the steamer "Britannic" on her arrival from Europe.

 Enclosure:

 to Francis Hendricks: New York, (New York)

Ford desires a permit for himself and O'Gorman to take passage on a revenue cutter to the quarantine, to meet the steamer "Britannic" upon her arrival from Europe. Upon presentation of this letter, Hendricks will please grant the request.

Brophy, John P.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

It was not fair for Brophy to ask to be excused but he was exhausted. Should Father (Rene) Holaind accept Brophy would be delighted, but he is feeling better now and will go ahead to be ready. If the second week is not filled McMahon can list him for both lectures. He asks for the exact dates.

E(gan), M(aurice) F(rancis): Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

Egan has just returned from Chicago where he saw Mr. and Mrs. Daly who spoke of McMahon affectionately. He sends the syllabi, but he can not go so late. The hay fever comes August 15 and then he is useless.

E(gan), M(aurice) F(rancis): Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

He sends the syllabi, but he cannot possibly be at New London so late. He thought it was for July 30 or early in August. The hay fever is a disease with him. He so wrote to (Warren E.) Mosher in the beginning. He is anxious to have a few days with McMahon and (George P.) Lathrop.

(Mullany), Brother Azarias (Patrick Francis): Syracuse, (New York)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

He returns Brother Clementian's letter. Azarias wrote to Brother Quintinian on the matter and was waiting for an answer before replying, but has not heard yet. He will be on retreat in Buffalo the first week in August. He can prepare nothing there but could get his thoughts together on "Our Catholic heritage in literature." McMahon can set him down for a lecture any date after August 10, perhaps August 12. Father John Mullany is attending the convocation of the Regents in Albany. He is booked for Buffalo Sunday night, Thousand Islands next week. He asks if McMahon is coming to Thousand Islands. It is important that they get two solid business men there. Azarias will meet Dr. Ferranti at Cathedral Rectory. When John returns they will have him with them.

Salter, Edith Agnes: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson may recall her sending a picture of General Grant for Father Fidelis (Stone, C.P.). (Charles Warren) Stoddard's presence stirred her to write. When Stone was there last fall he wrote Hudson from their house. Stone no longer has charge of the Chilean mission and the monastery at Vina del Mar is in the hands of Spanish Passionists. This week Stoddard is at Swampscott. As the letter was finished Stoddard returned by a late train. He gave Salter the picture of St. Agnes Hudson sent. She took her name when she entered the Church.

Edes, Ella: Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is an age since anyone from Notre Dame has written. She laughs at the idea of having her picture in Memorial Hall. It is piping hot in Rome. She is disgusted with the Faribault-Ireland affair. She has no feeling but utter contempt for Archbishop (John) Ireland (of St. Paul) and his clique. Such intriguing was never witnessed; and all to run the risk of giving the death-blow to Catholic education in the United States. They maneuvered to get a special commission of Cardinals who knew nothing of the true state of things in America. It is whispered that any amount of money was spent to carry out their aim. They would not dare make public the Ireland "Pro Memoria", the document on which the decision was based. What a farce the Freeman's Journal has become under the Fords. She asks is it true that (Maurice Francis) Egan is to assume the Editorship of a Daily Catholic Journal in Chicago.

Cary, Emma: Nahant, (Massachusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Cary was delighted to receive the book Hudson sent. She has a light claim on him as a spiritual son. She never forgets the little boy and fair youth who listened when Cary talked of the call for missionary work.

Chatard, Bishop F(rancis) S(ilas): Indianapolis, Ind(iana)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine) Corrigan: New York, (New York)

Chatard has read in the paper of an interview between Archbishop (John Ireland) and Father (Edward) McGlynn. The aim and purpose is very patent. Chatard wishes to express sympathy with Corrigan in what must be a trial. The late turn in the state of things at Rome has surprised Chatard. Chatard feels an authentic account of what took place between Ireland and McGlynn should be sent to the Cardinal Prefect. If McGlynn is disposed to return and Ireland is helping him, the facts stated will do no harm. If McGlynn is not so disposed, it will remain with ecclesiastical authority to reconcile this action with the apostolic letters.

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

Courson asks Hudson always to make the money order payable at Ryes. She spends nearly all year at Fresne. Hudson has probably received the article on Echternach. Courson offers to write an article on Frederic Ozanam. The boys will go in October to the Jesuit College at Evreux. Courson's husband has been elected "maire" of their village.

Edwards' letter reached her during retreat. It is the best ever given at Notre Dame. Father Robert, C.P., is the preacher. He has been secured for the students' retreat. It would give Father Edward Sorin new life if Edwards were to visit him at Nantucket. Father Franciscus will go to him at the close of their retreat.

He was disappointed at not being able to see (Seton) again before leaving for the South but he hopes to do so when he returns to New York the first week in August. He has some English friends who live in Oakland. The father Captain (Noel S.) Money is a distinguished British Army officer. He did great deeds in the Indian Mutiny. Money's father married Lady Burdett Contto. They were very rich once but have suffered reverses. The Captain is now manager of the Anglo-American E.C. Powder Company factory at Oakland. The son is now helping his father. The mother is a cousin of the Earl of Dunmore. There are two girls. Dunlop would like (Seton) to call on them.

Ryan, Archbishop P(atrick) J(ohn): Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

Ryan has asked the Chancellor, Father (James F.) Loughlin to have the Acts prepared to send to New York. The Judge, Father (Luke V.) McCabe is absent but can be consulted if necessary. The mistakes in regard to the numbers attending public schools is explained by Loughlin. Ryan read the Cardinal (James Gibbon)'s letter while on visitation to the diocese and did not remember such a passage, but before leaving for New York, the Cardinal spoke of it. They ought to send the real number as the Cardinal believes Archbishop (John) Ireland's computation greatly exaggerated, as was shown in an article in the "Standard." Ryan asks (Corrigan) when he can come to Cape May. Ryan will go down this evening, but must return early next week. The Rule of the Franciscans assigns six years for the term of superiority, and adds that there can be a second term with approval of the Bishop. Nothing is said of a third term. Ryan thinks he ought not to allow more than two terms. What does (Corrigan) think?

He is in a magnificent region of the country. He left New York by the "Fall River" line to Boston and thence by the "Boston and Bangor" line to Maine. He is staying on Penobscot Bay where the air, view and fishing are good. He is looking for a "summer girl" of not more than thirty summers. When Robert writes to Will he is to tell him he received his last note and "Illustrated Journal". There is no Catholic church here and no Catholics that he knows of.

Stoddard can see nothing to change in the proof. He returned the proofs of the new edition of the Idylls and told them to send no more. The picture does not do (Reginald) Birch justice. He is handsome and distingue. When Stoddard roomed with him in Munich in 1875 he was an ideal English lad. He will not cultivate friends and is quite a recluse.

Schaeffer was born and raised a Protestant, but during the past few years he has made the Catholic Church and Faith his study, until he is now convinced the Catholic is the only true Church. He has given the Ave Maria a notice in the journal there. He asks for second hand copies of "A Short Cut to the True Church" and "A Troubled Heart." Schaeffer will try to get on the staff of a good Catholic weekly.

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

In 1875, Starr translated the offices of the Fridays of Lent and they were published in the Ave Maria George Allen, the Greek professor at the University of Pennsylvania, complimented her on these articles. She knows she must make an arrangement with Hudson to publish them, and she wishes to know his feeling concerning them. Will Hudson publish them or leave it to Starr?

Father (Edward Sorin, C.S.C.) feels lonesome here. They go out every day on a steam yacht. Father (John A.) Zahm, C.S.C., went once but his pride could not allow him to repeat it. Zahm was ashamed to walk with them and does nothing to amuse Father. Zahm has tried all he could to influence Sorin to go to France. All the love he has for Sorin is his own interest.

Tumilty(?), Mary: Jersey City Heights, (New Jersey)
 to Monsignor (Robert Seton):

They were overjoyed that (Seton) still thought of them. They could never repay all his favors to them. Her mother is delighted with the Mass (Seton) said for her intention. Even the girls in the store ask for (Seton). They miss him very much; it does not seem the same not to see him about the church. Her aunt Julia sailed for Ireland July 12; Mary wishes Julia could go to see (Seton). Julia is not so well. James, Mary's oldest brother, is working in the same place. John is working this week and Lizzie goes to school, also Phil. Mary and Katie go to Father Smythe for Confession.

Dorsey, Anna Hanson: Washington, (District of Columbia)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey corrects a mistake she made about the young engineer officer. (Francis Marion) Bennettis the son of Judge (William P.) Bennett of Cassopolis, Michigan. The secret history about Charles Carroll, Dorsey heard from an old lady who was an intimate friend of Carroll's daughters, Mrs. (Richard) Caton and Mrs. (Robert Goodloe) Harper, the mother of Emily Harper who died recently. The fact Dorsey related was one well known in Maryland but never commented on. Twelve years ago she asked Father (Hugh F.) Griffin of St. Charles Borromeo if the story was true. He said it was true. Carroll did not remain abroad seventeen years as stated in the last Ave Maria. He did refuse to come home unless the marriage which would legitimize him was celebrated. Angie (Angela Eastman) received a letter from a friend in Europe in which she speaks of the remarkable work of the French painter (James Tissot). Dorsey offers to send Hudson the narrative. Mamie (Eastman) is just recovering from a long illness of nerve prostration.

 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

Having received no reply to his telegram of last Tuesday he writes to know if informal or oral discussion will be allowed immediately following lectures. If so he wishes to announce the fact. He asks if anything was decided at the council meeting about an official bulletin. Whether they print one or offer to fill columns in the paper it will be necessary to let Mr. Fitzmaurice, the editor, know immediately. He incloses a time table advertising the summer school (not inclosed). P.S. He has received McMahon's since writing the above, Miss White has a suggestion for a badge which she will enclose (no enclosure). They have decided on a register at the Lyceum and St. John's rooms. They have thought of meeting trains. They will try to have a desk and reading lamp for evening lectures. The inclosed time table gives information about Niantic trains and rate of board.

Guichainville, le Metayer de: New York, N. Y.
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan

He has not heard from Brownson for a long time. He mentions that his work on the autograph has not advanced. Even if the document is not genuine, it has attracted criticism and jealousy. He was offered $25 at the Club for it. In Europe, the offer was more liberal. However, he is too busy to engross himself in this Columbus affair. He also warns Brownson not to lose his time in this. If Brownson knows of people who would be interested in their ancestral tree, Guichainville can easily find this for them. He has already done this and the parties were well satisfied. He then recounts the activities of his son in stamp collection and the help of W. E. Curtis. He assures Brownson of his most esteemed affection.

He will be on hand for the first Sunday in August with that sermon. He cannot go back on the cold water cause and must be at Indianapolis next Aug. 2. He is glad to learn of the prospects for a successful season.

He is pleased to have McMahon's of the 26th consenting to the change in the program. It would be further improved if that on Milton took the place of that on Dramatists before Shakespeare. He lists a new program for his lectures. The last one would be on the Romances. He will take both lectures along with him. As to the offer about assistance on the readings: noting that Friday evening, the 12th is open he suggests that he read his Georgia Stories. He would share the proceeds with those who consent to arrange it.

Thanking McMahon for his long letter Lathrop says they will see about (Richard) Johnston's readings when he gets there. They wrote Hardy about accomodations but heard nothing from him. They will put McMahon at the Crocker House. They will place Miss Morris as McMahon wishes. The suggestion about forwarding Catholic books and opening a small book store is very good, but they do not know of any one to take charge of it.

Egan, Maurice Francis: (Notre Dame, Indiana)
 to Father (Joseph H.) McMahon: (New York, New York)

It is useless to attempt to explain how wretched he is to have caused so much inconvenience. He has delayed answers in the hope that he might arrange matters at the last moment. He has a contract to lecture twelve times there. There are one hundred sisters at St. Mary's. They saw his name on the circular. The lecturer on philosophy was given the present week and that put Egan back another week. As the school dissolves the eighth the directress insists that he must stay. He wrote to (George) Lathrop but the Sisters are not to blame. It is possible that McMahon may not need him with the splendid array of genius. He hopes that McMahon will think of him kindly.
