Brown, Father James T.: Paterson, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edwards will remember that he met him at Mgr. Seton's. He is now acting pastor at Paterson. He hopes Edwards is getting along well with his Memorial Hall. He asks to be remembered to Brothers Jacob, Fabian and Jarlath.

1895 Mar. 3
Carrier, C.S.C., Father Joseph C.:
St. Laurent College Montreal, Canada
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He never doubted Edwards' generous friendship. He must admit that he has done something in establishing and protracting the scientific course at Notre Dame. He is afraid that Father (John A.) Zahm (C.S.C.) is not over just in his appreciation of what he owes to Carrier. The disciple is now famous while the magister is content to remain ignorant. He is glad that Prof. (Timothy E.) Howard is writing the history of Notre Dame. Carrier would be flattered if the name of one who labored at Notre Dame for 14 years for the advancement of science and the formation of a library and museum would be mentioned. He donates the first booklet published at Notre Dame and printed in Niles; another booklet printed in 1845 for N. D. concerning the establishment of the Confraternity of the Immaculate Conception; a sectional map of Notre Dame surveyed and drawn by Carrier in 1869, a view of the church and academy of the Sisters at Bertrand; and his famous lithographed map of Notre Dame. It is not impossible that Carrier may end his voluntary exile and return to Notre Dame.

1895 Mar. 3
Hurth, C.S.C., Bishop P(eter) J.: Dacca, East Bengal
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Hurth left Notre Dame under circumstances which caused him to style his departure an "ecclesiastical elopement". He apologized for not saying goodbye to Hudson when he left Notre Dame. The work of converting the natives, always difficult, becomes doubly so there on account of the caste system and the American Baptists. The American Baptists preach the gospel of slander against Catholics. The yearly revenue of the diocese of Dacca hardly exceeds $6,000. The Ave Maria is now read by the wife of the Raja whom Father (Michael) Fallize, (C.S.C.) and Hurth visited lately. Hurth adks Hudson to send a copy of the Ave Maria to Father A. Francais, Chittagong, East Bengal. He encloses a copy of the Salve Regina in their language.

Dwyer, Michael J.: Boston, Mass(achusetts)

Replying to Seton's favor of March 2: the subject of the article is so interesting that Dwyer will give it his consideration. Their best terms are $4 per 1000 words. They thank him for his photograph. (Letterhead): Donahoe's Magazine.

Eaton, Reverend Arthur Wentw(orth) H(amilton): (New York, New York)
 to (Monsignor Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

Eaton is ashamed of not sending the monographs. He thanks Seton for his kind note. He wishes Seton were in New York so they could cheer each other when they were blue. Society is absolutely necessary to them both. He received from Col(onel) Robert E. Boyle photographs of John Hamilton and his wife Katherine Arbuckle, who afterward married Hugh Montgomerie and became an ancestress of the Earls of Eglinton. John Hamilton was "Baillie of the Abbey of Holyrood" for many years. He is not going to church much this Lent, but goes to the Cathedral every noon to say his prayers.

Kehoe, John: New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City, (New Jersey)

In a bindery there are 500 essays in sheets. The receiver of C(atholic) P(ublications) S(ociety) has given an order to turn them over to the (Catholic School Book Company) for Seton. Kehoe would like to know if Seton was charged for the whole edition bound. If so, the C.P.S. should refund the cost of binding these 500. (P.S.) After the C.P.S. affairs have been wound up, Seton could not make a claim.

1895 Mar. 9
Howe, Frances R(ose): Hot Springs, Ark(ansas)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Howe wonders if, when Hudson penned the article on our "Brothers in Black", he was aware he was delivering a blow at the Bishops and clergy of the South. The Catholic laity are bitterly opposed to conversion of the colored people and their clergy for the most part uphold them in their opposition. Hudson would be surprised to know how many Catholics there are in the South. There is a coldness towards religion, but it is not the coldness of indifference but the false reverence of Jansenism. The Negroes' want of chastity is the argument used in the South to oppose their conversion to the Catholic Church. Howe has heard that these are the sentiments of Bishop (Edward) Fitzgerald and the majority of his clergy. The late pastor of Hot Springs denounced the Negro race as worthless, and declared that all the money spent on their conversion was more than wasted. The conditions of their endowment oblige the Sisters of Mercy of this Hot Springs foundation to keep a colored school, but they can only give moral instruction. The pastor takes no interest in their labors. No wonder the colored people regard Catholics as their enemies. If the Catholic laity of the South could have their own way the Negro race would be reenslaved tomorrow. If in Hot Springs a mission for the Negroes was regularly opened and they were welcomed, many of them would embrace the Catholic Church. Howe's anxieties on Cecelia's account may seem overstrained. The Vicar General of Indianapolis gave her to Howe during Bishop (Francis Silas) Chatard's absence. Howe will be home early next month.

1895 Mar. 9
Weld, Father F(rancis) J.: Isleworth, England
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Weld came across a letter from Hudson to his sister, the late Catharine Weld. A good part of his life has been spent in preaching retreats and missions. He has printed a book of which he sends Hudson a copy. (Herbert) Cardinal Vaughan, his cousin, wished him to print it. Weld wants to send four or five hundred copies to dispose of according to Hudson's discretion.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Has Hudson any back numbers of the "Chap Book", volume one, lying about? Bliss Carman, once the editor, is in town. Rudyard Kipling is coming out to see Stoddard's den. Bishop (John Joseph Keane) expects to go to Notre Dame toward the end of the month.

Hardy, Charles A.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

The ms. of Brownson's article has been sent to Archbishop Patrick John Ryan of Philadelphia, who will pass upon it and notify Brownson. P.S.: Hardy has read the article with much interest, and if it is published he assures Brownson that it will be read by many with considerable effect.

Miller, W(illia)m Van R(ensselaer): New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City, N(ew) J(ersey)

Seton, in his letter published in today's Tribune, refers to a previous statement that "there are only 40 families in the U.S. that can prove their origin from the aristocracy of the mother country." Miller is editing for the Knickerbocker Publishing Company a volume concerned with genealogy. He asks Seton to inform him where the statement was published and whether the list includes families of Scottish origin.

 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan

Ford, as Treasurer of Augusta Catholic Church Funds, asks Brownson for a contribution of $1, $2.50, or $5 towards the completion of their now church, built in northern Montana among the Indians and half-breeds. He names Bishop (John Baptist) Brondel, of Helena, the Jesuit Fathers of St. Peter's Mission in Cascade County, and the American National Bank of Helena to which the contribution may be sent, as references.

O'Kennedy, Father Richard: Fedamore, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Kennedy some time ago sent "A Letter of Pilate's Wife" which, he suspects, is from the Italian classics. He has a number of Annals of the Holy Face for Hudson. He asks that numbers of the Ave Maria be sent to Mother Madeleine O'Connor, O.S.B. in Paris if Hudson uses them.

1895 Mar. 13
Brandi, S.J., Father S(alvatore) M.: Rome, (Italy)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

Brandi acknowledges (Corrigan)'s letter of March 1. His request will be attended to at once. Brandi does not believe what the person told (Corrigan). He knows for certain that the person is discredited and that no application of that sort would be considered unless fully endorsed by (Corrigan). Brandi is not surprised that the "clique" was disappointed in the enclyclical. (Corrigan) may have guessed the genesis of it. They failed to get what they wanted by the grace of the Holy Spirit. By this time (Corrigan) must know the final answer given the five or six archbishops on the decree on secret societies. The Holy Father was consoled when he finally received the adhesion by cablegram of (Archbishop John Ireland) and (Cardinal James Gibbons). Bishop (Thomas) Becker has gone to the Holy Land. He had a special audience with the Pope and will see him again on his return. On other points he will speak to Bishop (Charles E.) McDonnell when he comes to Rome. Mr. and Mrs. Bliss have gone to Naples to return in April to Rome. Brandi suggests that an honor be obtained for Bliss such as was obtained for Mr. Creighton of Omaha through Cardinal Mazzella. The execution of this plan depends upon (Corrigan). The request could be enclosed in a letter to Cardinal Mazzella who will do all he can to further the request. Brandi has spoken to no one of this idea.

1895 Mar. 13
Manley, J.H.: Augusta, Maine
 to Monsignor Robert (Seton) Seaton(sic): Jersey City, New (Jersey) York(sic)

He noticed (Seton)'s letter in Monday's Tribune on Abraham Lincoln. (Seton) stated that there are only forty families in the United States that can prove their origin in the aristocracy of the mother country. He asks Seton to tell him where he can obtain a list of those families. (Seton writes on the same paper that he) was not yet prepared to make 39 ingrates and 400 enemies.

Smith, R(obert) Hobart: New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey

Smith has been much interested in Seton's letter in Monday's Tribune as he was once before in a contribution in "Curio." He asks Seton to direct him to the publication in which he can find the account of the "forty families in the United States that can prove their origin from the aristocracy of the mother country." Smith's father is W(illia)m Alex(and)er Smith, whom Seton may know by reputation. As a lineal descendant of Sir Robert Wingfield and Lady Elizabeth Cecil through his great great grandmother Rebecca, sister of Bishop (John Henry) Hobart, it is not unnatural that Smith should feel some interest in matters of pedigree.

Verwyst, O.S.F., Father Chrysostom: Ashland, Wis(consin)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

He thanks Edwards for the invitation to visit Notre Dame to inspect the letters of Bishop (Frederick) Baraga. He understands that Baraga used to correspond often with "Wahrheits Freund" of Cincinnati. Bishop Vertin invited him to inspect a journal of Baraga at Marquette. He asks if the university has "Lettres Edifiantes" of the Jesuit Fathers, a kind of continuation of the Relations.

Jevons, Thomas Seton: New Brighton, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

The Home Journal is going to publish his article "Round New York." The Catholic World has accepted a second article on "Wordsworth." Is there an historical magazine in New York? What is the address of the Catholic Quarterly? They saw Seton's Lincoln letter in the Tribune. Seton keeps the 40 family secret like a sword of Damocles. March 25 he will attend a dinner to celebrate the 21st birthday of a friend, Frederick De Witt Wells. In a month, Rex (Reginald Jevons), Ferdy (Ferdinand Talbot Roscoe Jevons) and Thomas will begin their weekend excursions to Cragdon. They intend to build a camp in the woods. As Uncle Will(iam Seton) and Aunt Sally do not sail till June Uncle Will may Join them occasionally. He and Rex went to a party at Mrs. Gordon Norrie's last week. Now that Congress has moved out, business is reviving. Now they will see what the Republicans can do after all their promises and boasting.

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

He thanks Seton for his courteous answer to his letter and such an interesting bit of news about his kinswoman, Mrs. (Levi Silliman?) Ives. He anticipates reading Seton's article in the Home Journal and hopes it may not be very long before Seton's list of the Forty Families is completed.

 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The wine arrived in safety and in good time. There was nothing to indicate who had sent it and now that he knows it was from Edwards it expresses his sincere gratitude. He hopes he may have the pleasure of seeing Edwards and his other friends at Notre Dame before long.

Smith, R(obert) Hobart: New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

He has all the Home Journals Seton indicated and has read a great part of Seton's articles with enjoyment. By way of thanks, he is sending a likeness of the first of the Queen's four Maries, by Primavera, a faithful reproduction of the original in the British Museum. If Seton does not already have the medal, he hopes he will accept this copy. Seton has doubtless seen two interesting papers, one in The Nineteenth Century for January, 1894, by Lord Dundonald, on "Protection of Surnames" and the other in The Quarterly Review for October, 1893, on "The Peerage."

While he was at Foligno Mother Abbess (Maria Serafica Fedeli Badesse) of St. Anne's asked Treves to write Hudson in favor of their convent which is about to be sold. He encloses a copy of the petition asking help to buy back their convent where the saintly Mother Teresa Margherita Gesta left her dead hand printed. He asks Hudson to insert it in the Ave Maria.

Bigelow, Melville M.: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

Bigelow thanks Seton for his letter about their common ancestor, Seiher de Quincy. He was glad to hear an explanation of the curious Christian name of the old Earl of Winton. He has given some attention to the history of the Bohnns, Earl of Hereford. He hopes someday to write the story of the family. His own name is a pure Americanism; it is Watertown, Mass(achusetts), from 1636, for Bageley. That was the name is Suffolk of the first Bigelow who may have been of the Baguleys of Cheshire. Enclosed is a printed review of Bigelow's "Elements of the Law of Torts."

Lenihan, Michael J.: South Orange, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: Jersey City Heights, N(ew) J(ersey)

Lenihan did not have an opportunity to speak to Seton yesterday concerning the new flag for the College Battalion. It will be of blue silk with gold fringe. Father (William E.) Marshall thinks it would be appropriate to have the Seton coat of arms and suggested that Seton would be able to loan them some medallion or painting from which a copy could be made. Lenihan hopes that Seton's next visit to Seton Hall will not occupy so much of his time so that they may have a longer visit from him at their house.

Seton, Eliz(abeth): Huntington, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey

While at Mass, she thought of Seton and how beautiful his church must be today. There were only too few people at Mass; most of them come such distances. One little girl had walked 4 miles; Eliz(abeth) gave her 25 for coffee and a roll. At the children's monthly Communion Father (Jeremiah J.) Crowley often gives them money for breakfast. William writes that Robert overworks himself and does not sleep well. A warm bath might make him rest better.

Jevons, Tho(ma)s: New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

(Thomas) Seton (Jevons) received a letter from Robert enclosing one from Sir Bruce (Maxwell) Seton. It was kind of Robert to write to him, Aunt Daisy, and Jevons and they will not fail to pay their respects to him and Lady Seton when they reach London. Will Robert tell how Sir Bruce is related to him and what his position is. From his coat of arms Jevons presumes he is in the public service. Jevons is glad to see that while Robert encourages Seton to write he also criticizes him. He needs greater accuracy. Jevons has almost decided to sail April 20 per "Campania" in which case he will miss St. George's dinner. He hopes Robert will go as he proposes to be represented by Rex (Reginald Seton) and Seton and would like them to be under Robert's wing. Seton is still without business occupation but Jevons hopes to find a place for him before long.

He thanks Seton for promptly sending the device he asked for and for the photograph of himself. It is an excellent likeness but it makes Seton look older than he is. The coat of arms will make an excellent design for their flag of (Seton Hall).

Woods, Henry Ernest: Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to Monsignor (Robert) Seton: Jersey City, (New Jersey)

Woods has received Seton's letter; any paper Seton would read before the New England Historic Genealogical Society would be very acceptable and the subject, Ecclesiastical Heraldry, is a most interesting one. Woods, too, spent many days in that part of the world made famous by the Crusaders. The arranging of papers is in the hands of a Committee of which George R.W. Scott is chairman. Woods has sent Seton's letter to Scott.

Referring to the letter of introduction Seton gave Miss Delury, Grace was unable to secure her reinstatement in the office of the Counsel to the Corporation. W.L. Saunders of the Ingersoll-Sergeant Drill Co. might be able to give her employment. Grace wrote Miss Delury asking her to call on Saunders but his letter has just been returned. Seton might communicate with her and ask her to call on Saunders.

Conformably to Edwards' request, he wrote his reminiscences of Prof. (Max) Girac. Judge Howard may desire to avail himself of Carrier's souvenirs of the great musician. He may write a short notice of Prof. (Stanislaus) Beleke. He is afraid (Timothy) Howard will have little time to complete the history of Notre Dame. Carrier will do all he can to further the undertaking.

Mahon, P. J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Edwards' photographs of the California missions are now in course of reproduction. They are gathering in others from all parts of the world. Edwards is aware now that (Maurice F.) Egan is Editor of the work. Egan's name will give a stamp of superiority to the work in Catholic eyes. Mahon looks back gratefully to the cheery help he obtained from Notre Dame through Edwards. They plan to translate the book into Spanish, French and German. This enterprise has inspired the firm to go more largely into the Catholic field. Knowing the feebleness of Catholic publishers, they must feel grateful that such is the case.
