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

Edwards' letter served to cheer him up. If Edwards knew how much good his visit did Seton, he might come oftener. Notre Dame and the Catholic University are the only two institutions which ever encouraged Seton. Bishop John J. Keane, too, brought him out at the Parliament of Religions. He thinks the selection for the Laetare Medal is excellent. He has heard nothing but good of Augustine Daly. Catholics are proud of (Pope Benedict XIV's) letter to the bishops of France exhorting them to more charitable dealings with the members of the theatrical profession.

Hudson's letter reached Stoddard while he was in Providence hospital because of the grippe. (FrankJ) Hagenbarth is quite unspoiled; all the flash of youth has rubbed off. (Francis Marion)Crawford is better, but he was unable to appear in their lecture course.

Lee, Frederic George: (London, England)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Lee thanks Hudson for the book. The possession case needs to be largely detailed. In England the subject of exorcism seems to have been quietly dropped. Lee takes the deepest interest in the supernatural, disliking modern "progress" greatly. He will send his book with a few written words.

 to Monsignor Robert (Seton: Jersey City Heights, New Jersey

They reached Rome on Saturday. Robert's note of February 16 followed them; both Louise and he appreciated Robert's manner of touching on their happiness. Yesterday they visited Archbishop (Edmund) Stonor, who has promised to get them presented to the Pope. They also called upon Baroness (Emily Mary Gabrielle) Halkett who received them with the Abbess of the order these ladies are about to establish for English ladies who visit this city desiring to become Catholics. Miss Halkett appears to be an intelligent, warmhearted girl. They have not called upon Count Moore nor upon Pania nor Cardinal Prince Ruffo. Monsignor (Denis) O'Connell has gone east and will not return until after Easter. Stonor was highly complimentary to (Seton)'s ability. (Seton) is to remember Sands to Will and his wife and the Jevons family.

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

He sends a photograph of his great grandfather, William Seton. His father, Benjamin Maitland, inherited the portrait from his mother Eliza Seton, daughter of William Seton and wife of James Maitland. It is said to be by Gilbert Stewart (!) There are two portraits of William Seton, the other is in possession of his cousins, the (Henry) Ogdens of New York. Maitland's father was an orphan at 5 years and was taken care of by his mother's sister, Aunt Mary Seton Hoffman of New York. His father always said he was taught that he was of noble birth and was of the Lauderdale Maitlands. Uncle Samuel Seton of New York not long before his death sent his father a copy of the family record of William Seton written by Mrs. John V. Henry. In this record Maitland's father is mentioned as the younger brother of William Maitland of the firm of Seton, Maitland and Company.

Brougham, M.C.: South Kensington, (England)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City Heights; New Jersey)

Seton is more than good to take so much trouble about Arthur Bigge. His sister (Beatrix A.) Bigge is most touched. Brougham will tell her little boy to pray for Seton; her little girl is only 7 months old. They hope they will have the pleasure of seeing Seton over again in (18)96. Her husband has passed his final examinations and has been admitted as a solicitor in partnership with Day and Russell, sons of Judge Day and Sir Charles Russell. Her husband has asked her to send the enclosed circular (no enclosure) and begs Seton to recommend him to anyone wanting English law. He has been very unlucky; on one occasion he broke his leg in five places and was laid up for 6 months, on another he was ill with typhoid. The war in Brazil has reduced their income.

Bigge, Beatrix A.: London, (England)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City Heights, New Jersey)

She cannot find words to thank Seton for his response to Mrs. (M.C.) Brougham's letter and all the trouble he has taken in going to Blackwell's Island. Bigge's mother has had a letter from her brother Arthur (Bigge) in which he seemed penitent — Arthur had said he was going to become a Catholic, but the impulse passed away. A Methodist friend has a great deal of influence over Arthur. When he is free he wishes to go to another country. Beatrix hopes Seton will come to England in '96 and hopes he will visit her in her home in Guernsey. (P.S.) If Seton will write after he has seen her brother, she will be very grateful.

Dion, C.S.C., FatherG. A.: Rome, (Italy)

Sorbellini, Father Giovanni: Osimo, (Italy)
 to Father G. A. Dion, C.S.C.: Rome, (Italy)

Sorbellini is grateful for the article Dion published in the St. Joseph magazine. The Sanctuary of Campocavallo, almost completed, will be a monument of piety and faith. This year they hope to put on the roof. The Ave Maria published at Notre Dame, Indiana, has a large number of subscribers. Perhaps if the Ave recommended Campocavallo and The Echo would publish it in Italian and French, Sorbellini is sure the harvest would be great.

The East Neuk of Fife arrived and it has much that interests her. She would like Seton to suggest a book that contains as much about the Johnstones as that does about the Scots and also where she could find a picture of Annandale Castle. At her mother's suggestion she has undertaken to write a series of articles on the old families of New Jersey. They have just returned from Washington where they visited at Mrs. Kearney's. They hope to have Mrs. Powell for a visit this summer.

It is true that Funk and Wagnalls have been unfriendly to Catholics and Holaind consented to correct the blunders in the definition of Catholic words to keep Dr. (Edward) McGlynn or some other enemy of Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan) from obtaining control of that department of the Dictionary. Not more than $100 has been promised. Dr. Funk and others have treated him with great consideration. P.S. When the dictionary is completed, it will have cost very nearly one million dollars. Messrs. Huxley and Max Muller on the staff are paid a little more than the ethics professor at Woodstock College.

Cardinal Prince Ruffo was ill when they called. Monsignor ( ) Panici called upon them and promised them tickets for Tenebrae, and Monsignor (Edmund) Stonor has been very courteous. Monsignor (Denis) O'Connell is absent and his deputy does not impress them; he is a rough Irish priest. They have been sightseeing to an awful extent and it is wearing on his system. Today they went to St. Peter's for the blessing of the Palm but might as well have not been there because of the crowd.

Edwards can arrange to be at Notre Dame Maes will stay a few days and attend to the Episcopal Genealogical tree. If he can find certain documents which his moving to Madison Avenue has scattered, he will have something very interesting for Father (John A.) Zahm, (C.S.C.).

He dined with one of the leading merchants, Mr. ( ) Brown who was born of Scotch parents in Cuba and who has married a Cuban and is well on the way to making a fortune. Holy Thursday and Good Friday were kept as holidays: cars, buses, and carriages were stopped in the streets from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. His business trip has been abbreviated as Cuba is in a state of panic. Since 1/2 or 2/3 of their money is in silver, they are watching to see if Cleveland will veto the silver bill.

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

Archbishop (John) Ireland is one of the outside clerical meddlers in the affairs of this state. Ireland is one but there are others; it is just what Father (Thomas) O'Gorman would do. While they thought only of the Republican leaders, the others were busy getting pledges for Fathers (Sylvester) Malone and (Louis A.) Lambert among the country members. Anything to beat McQuaid. The defeat did not disappoint McQuaid but he was sorry for the honor of the Church. Hamilton Fish showed much feeling against Corrigan perhaps because he is a Senator from Father (James) Nilan's district. Bishop (Stephen) Ryan never does anything directly, always through others. Father (Patrick) Cronin and ( ) Mahany, editor and sub-editor of the Catholic Union and Times, engineered the campaign for Lambert in the interest of Malone. The bishop knew what was going on. Archbishop (John J.) Kain has a great deal of backbone. When Father (David) Phelan makes the row he is sure to make he may be deserted as Foley in the Kolosinski case and (Corrigan) in the McGlynn affair. McQuaid will be in New York for H(oly) Redeemer celebration on April 22. Ireland is to address a Temperance Convention on Staten Island. Corrigan should be cautious of what he says at the (Catholic) University (of America) meeting.
