A clipping describing the "Revel" of the Colonial Dames (of America) in the Madison Square Assembly and Concert Rooms. Perhaps the most notable of the dames was Miss Penn Gaskell Hall, of Philadelphia. Monsignor (Robert) Seton was a fine figure in his long cleric's coat and his small clothes, crimson hose and pumps with huge silver buckles. To Mrs. John Van Rensselaer, secretary of the Colonial Dames, the historical success of this revel was chiefly due.

(Edes, Ella B.): (Rome, Italy)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edes was surprised that Hudson should not have understood that no bill ever accompanies books sent to him from Propaganda. Did he see the denial of devil worship among the Freemasons in Charleston by Bishop (Henry Pinckney) Northrop? Did Hudson not think it imprudent on his part? The devil worship is a matter of little doubt there (in Rome).

Pleasants, J. Hall, Jr.: Towson, M(arylan)d
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

Pleasants is a cousin of Elizabeth Pleasants of Baltimore. He is trying to connect the American descendants of Samuel Curzon, the first, with the family given on the tree his uncle Walter (-Curzon) Poultney has. While the newspapers were discussing the Curzon-Leiter wedding recently a few words by Seton appeared in the Baltimore American on the Curzon family. Seton stated Hall's branch was descended from the Curzon of Waterperry, Oxfordshire. Hall had thought they were descended from the Curzons of Kedleston.
