Boyle, Robert E.: (London, England
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey

Boyle had never heard of the old pedigree Seton mentions. It is satisfactory to find so much authority for the belief Boyle had arrived at as to the parentage of Margaret Seton Scrymgeour. Perhaps George Seton can show Boyle the paper Seton mentions; Boyle will look for it at the British Museum. Boyle thanks Mr. Faton for his kind suggestion.

Mrs. Schroeder's mother, Mrs. Wainwright, had two intimate friends, Miss Seaton who became the mother-in-law of her daughter, and Miss Seton, her godmother.

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

When they get to Scotland next month he hopes to send (Seton) some family photographs. He, too, has some doubts as to the identity of Father Alex(ande)r Seton and the Chancellor. The alleged marriage of the 5th Earl of Winton to Margaret Mc(?) Klear was proved to be a myth when Geo(rge) Seton of Bellingham claimed the Winton title about 70 years ago. The sword supporting a crown in the middle of the three crescents was the coat of Barns. Mrs. (Catharine Seton) Coventry has both seals and bookplates. He has found some more matter relative to Mary Seton. His son and daughter send regards.

Years ago in Baltimore Dorsey read an English life of St. Therese loaned by the Carmelites of the first foundation made by the order in this country. She was intimate with them and her husband attended to all their outside affairs. The first foundation was made in Charles County, Maryland, but the Archbishop of Baltimore advised them to remove to Baltimore. They established their convent on Asquith Street. It was there that Sister Isabella escaped one Sunday and ran into the midst of the outcoming congregation of the Presbyterian Church presided over by (John) Breckenridge who was having the controversy with Archbishop John (Joseph) Hughes. The nun, who inherited her insanity, was a Miss ( ) Dent; she was placed in the Maryland Hospital.

(Hill), C.P., Father Edmund: Pittsburgh, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

"Short Cut" in its present getting up is a cheap book. But a less elegant edition would take better on missions. Some priests have complained that they cannot get the same reduction on the book as they are allowed by the men they deal with on other works. Hill's home is now at the Retreat of St. Paul. He has made an attempt at a prose contribution for the Ave Maria in the "Sin of Unbelief". He hears that Father Fidelis (Stone, C.P.) is to give retreats at Notre Dame.

(Sands) is glad (Seton) sees Louisa's qualities through her letters; he has drawn a prize and knows it. (Sands)' niece, Edith (Rhinelander) has made a good match in marrying. (Sands) is surprised by (Seton)'s saying that Daisy Jevons has had four offers; some of these quiet creatures run deeper than one supposes. Is the young Kane a son of De Lancy (?) Kane whose wife is a Miss Islin? (Sands) believes the true foundation of a happy married life is the Catholic Faith (but) he is bound to acknowledge the early discipline of his wife's Episcopalian mother. (Seton) says that Will(iam Seton) and his wife hope to meet them in Europe; Will has not written of his arrival. Lizzie (Elizabeth Seton) has had some correspondence with Louisa who thinks her a noble girl. (Sands) wants (Seton) to send him a drawing of his crest-motto. (A sketch of a crest is in this letter.) From here they go further into the Tyrol; they are not yet on their way home. If they are in Paris at the proper season they will call on Madame (Helen Bailly) de Barberey. On the 27th he and Louisa kept the six months' anniversary of their wedding by renewing their vows. He would not change her for any other woman he knows.
