(On the back of the letter Seton has written): An old Accademia friend.

It gives Lee pleasure that Hudson is to publish the music of the litany. The reunion movement goes on apace.

J(evons), T(homas) S(eton): Buxton, (England)
 to (Monsignor) Robert (Seton: Jersey City, New Jersey)

He cannot possibly tell in a letter all they have been doing and seeing. They were very glad to hear of cousin Louis (Joseph Sands)'s happiness. Monday they go on to Liverpool whence they sail for New York on September 21. J(evons) and Marguerite (Jevons) borrowed their aunt's dog cart and pony and drove to Wydale House where they were welcomed by Mrs. (Ellen L.) Cayley, a widow, and sister of Sir George, and her unmarried sister, Miss Aubrey. Staying with them was Dr. Hardy of Bournemouth. After showing them the house and two cups, once the property of the Miss Berries (Misses Bery) they drove to Brompton Hall but did not see Sir George Cayley who is very ill. J(evons) wishes he could manage to go with (Seton) next summer. He is thinking of going to South Africa; it seems to be the place for opportunities. J(evons) preceded his father and Marguerite to Paris; he did some mountain climbing. He had planned a trip by boat down the Rhone to Avignon and back; he was terribly disappointed that the boats were not running. At Fontainbleau he chose a very nice hotel. He also tried to find Mrs. Rachael Barrington and her mother but in vain. At Dieppe he stayed at the Grand H(otel) Francais; Count de Nevaro and Baron Rothanthil were there. J(evons) enjoyed a bathe in the sea before crossing to London. There he found his father and M(arguerite) already engaged in dinners, etc. He encloses a cutting from Truth (no enclosure). In looking over a book, "English Names," J(evons) found Seton under "see Seaton." On their second visit to London J(evons) and Marguerite payed a call on Sir Bruce (Maxwell Seton) and Lady Seton. Today J(evons) visited Haddon Hall with Marguerite and his cousin. His Aunt Lucy Hutton has given him a gold seal. He is going to have his initials cut on one side and perhaps the arms of Jevons or Seton on the other. Rex (Reginald Jevons) seems to have been going round visiting a great deal this summer while Ferdy(Ferdinand Talbot Roscoe Jevons) has been to Huntington. J(evons) calls T(emple?) P(rime?) "Old Sauerkraut." J(evons) has been reading a great deal lately. They sail in a week.

Mulhall, Susan: Normandy, M(issouri)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She felt absence must be the cause of no earlier response. Since she wrote about her grandson, his father in Paris has been growing worse. He is active but not himself mentally. This disturbs the children. She hesitates to accept such liberality as making her own terms. All she could pay for Joseph is $10 a month. She impresses on Joseph that he must some day make up the deficit.

Egan, M(aurice Francis): Liverpool, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Oxford, Cambridge and Stratford interested Egan most. The (Wilfred) Meynells are charming. He almost turned Egan's hair grey by saying that Rossiter (Johnson?) would some day be looked on as divinely as Job. Meynell told Egan about Francis Thompson. John Chatterton seemed to appear to him and force him not to drink all the poison. Ida and Una Taylor asked Egan to tea on Friday. Those girls are daughters of Sir Henry Taylor and cousins of Aubrey de Vere. They told him that Alfred Lord Tennyson was rude but that (Thomas) Carlyle was the sum(?) of courtesy. In England the artistocracy, the literary and the artistic seem to look on the Catholic Church with great respect. Father ( ) Humphrey lived just back of his chambers and Egan had some talks with him.

Heuser, Father H(ermann) J.: Overbrook, P(ennsylvani) a
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

If Brownson's series does not exceed four articles of between 3000 and 4000 words each, the publication to begin in the January, 1896, number, Heuser will gladly accept them, at $120 for the four papers. Brownson probably knows that the Ecclesiastical Review addresses itself to the clergy and students of theology exclusively.

Coppens, S.J., Father C(harles): Omaha, Neb(raska)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father Coppens has directed his publisher to send Brownson a copy of his latest volume, "Moral Philosophy," which he began to write in Detroit, profiting from a remark of Brownson that morality in several Catholic text-books seemed to be treated without sufficient reference to God, becoming a sort of independent morality. He hopes he has succeeded in avoiding that fault to Brownson's satisfaction and begs Brownson to look after his health, to preserve his useful career for many years to come.

Griffin, Martin I. J.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

When Edwards comes at Christmas time he must give Griffin a day. An hour or two with a plain man who loves his friend might really be a point of observation if not a source of enjoyment. Stella (Griffin), Sister Dorothea, is at Port Carbon, Pa. teaching. Martin (Griffin Jr.) is at St. Paul.
