Ogden, Henry: New York, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert Seton: (Jersey City, New Jersey)

He received Seton's letter of April 22. He may be mistaken as to the year Alfred Seton, his mother's brother, died. He had a daughter Evretta Seton who married Waldron B. Post, who died leaving two girls and one boy. Sarah Post married a Mr. Morris and has lived in Europe for many years as has her sister, also married, but Ogden does not know the name. Ogden knew Mrs. Morris well. (Thomas) Jevons thinks that all six heirs should sign a note as enclosed to the Farmers Loan and Trust Company. The balance of the principle(!) of the mortgage on Cragdon is now due. The sum of $12,300 has been paid, leaving just $62,700 due, but drawing interest at the rate of 5% per annum. As they sell the lots off, they are obliged to redeem the blanket mortgage at the rate of $125 per lot. Jevons' idea is that they be kept under a little presure to hurry them up, hence the note to the Trust Company, giving them some authority. Seton and the others instructed the Trust Company to hold all sums from the liquidation of the mortgage until they amounted to $17,000 to pay the $17,000 on the lot and building in Tenth St. So only $4,700 is yet needed. When the $17,000 is paid off, then of course the balance of the mortgage as liquidated will be held by the Trust Company for their action.

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

Lee is glad to hear that the Litany of the Departed is being printed and circulated. The Holy Father's letter to the nation cheered him very much. Lee was invited to Rome last autumn to answer some questions, but was too ill to go.

(Seton, E)Liz(abeth): Huntington, (New York)
 to Monsignor Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

William (Seton) sent her the paper containing Seton's St. George Dinner speech. She and Nina (Temple) are going to Shinnecock Tuesday to spend a few days with Sally as the house is being painted and the odor gives them sore throats. Temple (Prime) does not mind it or says nothing. Their mission was very successful; one of the Fathers, Father Bloom, had met Robert. This evening they are to have a lecture at their church for the benefit of their library. Liz goes to tea at the Episcopal rectory as the parson's wife and daughters are going to hear the lecture. Mrs. Turner is quite High and always has a sweet look at Liz's altar with dear Em(ily Seton)'s Blessed Virgin.

Gambon, Father Thomas F.: Louisville, K(entuck)y
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana

He has been too busy to write. He is the ecclesiastical superior of both the Sisters of Loretto and the Dominican Sisters. He and Mgr. Sbarretti had pleasant times together. Edwards need not mind about the degree of the man in Bardstown as he is no longer in favor with the powers that be. He hopes the Monarchs are doing well under Edwards.

Mr. Geo. G. Champlin of the New York State Library asks for information about classical plays. Edwards might get somebody to copy the Scholastic reports of Prof. (Joseph C.) Lyon's Shakespearean plans and of Father Walsh's Latin play.

Bowers, Clara: Brooklyn, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Miss Bowers, who is writing a book on the North American Indians past and present, asks permission to quote the following extracts from Tarducci's Life of Columbus: Volume 1, p. 274, Vol. 2, p. 9, p. 274, and several other references in connection with Irving's Life and Voyages of Columbus. She will give her authority in a footnote, mentioning Brownson as translator, and will name the book among her authorites quoted, of which there will be about 120.

(Cavaroc), P. C(harles): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

They have been making a radical change in their form of doing business. They will deal chiefly with their representative agencies. As soon as they are settled in their new offices he will run out to see Edwards.

Nugent of Des Moines, who is to lecture at the Western Summer School, the name of a new work in Spanish which gives a correct view on the Inquisition, Father Nugent's topic; and Father Coppens would like Brownson's opinion on books and articles to consult on the subject. Father Coppens has never had a year he has enjoyed so much as the present.

(MacDonnell), Sister M(ary) Magdelene: (Lisbon, Portugal)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The cause of Sister's long silence was the wish to have the translation of a German story ready for Hudson. Nothing is talked about in Lisbon but the celebration of St. Antony's centenary. Monsignor (Dom.) Jacobini is doing his best for the Church in Portugal, but there are not a dozen good Portuguese priests except the Franciscan and Jesuit religious. The nuncio is trying to get the Christian Brothers to open a superior school.

Seton, W(illiam): Southampton, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

They have had some wild weather; he feels like at sea. T(h)om(as) Jevons and Isabel (Jevons) were there last Sunday. (E)Liz(abeth Seton) is with them until next Monday. (Henry) Ogden comes on Saturday to stay till Monday. Robert is to let W(illiam) know when he is coming as W(illiam) may send an excursion ticket. W(illiam) has been told (Louis Joseph) Sands is back. If Robert sees him he is to tell him that he can find a very nice cottage there in Shinnecock Art Village. The rent is $300 for 5 months. Mrs. Parrishcomes to her Southampton house on June 5. W(illiam) had good letters from Harry and Jack. They do not sail before July 6. (P.S.) Yesterday Dr. Sterling's daughters dined with them. The Doctor is a convert, he used to live in Sagharbor.

Dutton, (Ira B.), Brother Joseph: Kalawao, (Hawaii)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's ideas as to the method of procedure in regard to the cause of Father (Joseph) Damien (de Veuster, SS.CC.) are correct. Dutton's opinion is that the Bishop (Gulstan Ropert) will be more enthusiastic over the cause on his return than now. There is no doubt in Dutton's mind that the influence of Damien's name and example has been of benefit to the cause of Christianity. Dutton has done nothing more than what Hudson knows of except as to Archbishop Abraham Janssens. That was a request to Monsieur ( ) de Anglode(?) to the effect that he talk with the Archbishop on the subject and if agreeable send a note to Father Maurice ( ). He should have asked Bishops (John) McCloskey and the (Joseph) Rademacher). The Ave Maria may become the special exponent of the cause of beatification of Damien. Father Maurice says in his letter that the Congregation of the Sacred Heart has purchased the "fatherly house" of Father Damien at Tremeloo. The English edition was disappointing to them also; they hope it will improve. Mr. ( ) Van Roy is zealous and apparently capable. Dutton has asked Dr. (G. W.) Woods to write something for it. Father Maurice speaks favorably of the brothers who are to come to help. Father (Lambert) C(onrardy) is now quite ill. Probably he begins to feel insecure.

Augustine, Sister Mary: Louisville, K(entuck)y
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edwards will remember that she was instrumental in sending Richard and John Whitehead to Notre Dame. Now she wants to send others and asks that catalogues be sent to J. M. Ford, Mrs. Gilbert, Mrs. Reising. Having sisters to take care of the children and infirmary, Notre Dame has an advantage over other universities. She has read the long accounts in the papers of the wonderful work that Edwards is doing for the Catholic Church.

 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Seton, W(illiam): Southampton, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

Robert's letter of the 21st came yesterday. Robert is to come any day in June and stay as long as he can. The art village is filling up. Chase, the artist, is to give lectures. W(illiam) read in the Tribune about that ancient Rollo oak. There is much to see in Europe. One of W(illiam)'s old army friends, Gerard of the 4th N.Y., sailed yesterday for Antwerp. Sam(uel) Parrish is to sail with them on July 6. He had a letter from Mrs. Lee yesterday at Tuxedo. Sally finds living here thrice as dear as in France. Mrs. Parrish would like them to remain there till November rent free. (E)liz(abeth Seton) is back at Huntington.

Jevons, Thomas Seton: London, (England)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

They have now been in London two weeks. After a bad voyage, they arrived at Liverpool. As Marguerite (Jevons) had some shopping to do they stayed at their cousin's in Birkenhead, then to their aunt's in Hampstead, and in another week at No. 8 Wilbeck Street. Yesterday they took up their permanent abode here at No. 40 of the same street where they will give some dinners. There is no place like America and no people like the better class of Americans. They have been to a musical at the Korbay's, great friends of their father and Marguerite, to a ball at Mrs. Gordon's, wife of their cousin John Gordon. However grand, it cannot compare with a similar affair in New York. The people are too slow. They had dinner at Miss Strong's, a New Yorker who will make her debut at Covent Garden Opera House this spring. He is looking forward to his father's (Thomas Jevons) arrival for many reasons—one that he can show him the haunts of men like Johnson. Has (Seton) seen any of Jevons' in the Home Journal? He sent two articles and epigrams before sailing. If he could succeed in writing he would prefer that life to a business career. They hope to enjoy themselves for another month. They hired a piano and that has nearly completed Marguerite's happiness as Mr. Korbay's criticisms of her voice are good. Three days ago Jevons went to Sir Bruce (Maxwell) Seton's only to find that they were away in France and would not be back till the middle of next month. Tomorrow Mrs. Gordon is going to take them for a drive in Hyde park to see a review. (P.S.) Sir Henry Roscoe has promised him an order of admittance to the House of Commons and he will also go to the Lords.

Seton, Elizabeth: Huntington, (New York)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

On Wednesday last Elizabeth got back from a fortnight at Shinnecock with Sarah and William (Seton). As Robert is expected to visit them in June, the pleasantest way to go there is by the Sag Harbor steamboat and catch a train to Southampton. She gets the details from Judge G.T. Daly, now staying with them, whose summer residence is Sag Harbor. She is glad T(h)om(as) Jevonshas pleasant weather while off their coast.

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

Brandi acknowledges (Corrigan)'s letter with the check for $530. He confesses that when he applied for the honor he did not expect that much tax, otherwise he would have written to (Corrigan) first. He had mentioned it to Bliss first, telling him that it was a token of (Corrigan)'s esteem. Bliss is willing to pay the expense and will suggest this when he returns to New York. The papal brief, though addressed to Bliss, has not been given to him. Brandi has it and will send it with Father (Herman) Heuserwho leaves Rome in a few days. Bliss is to receive it from (Corrigan). It is true that the Holy Father allowed Dr. (Richard) B(urtsell)to write anything he pleased and give it to Msgr. Angeli but the Pope did not give him a private audience while he received often Bishop (Henry) Gabriels and Father (John) Edwards. To Father Heuser he will give receipts for the decoration, 150 francs, for the tax 2,500 francs. He refused to pay the 250 francs for the agent.
