(Schmidt), Oscar: Cambridge, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was glad to hear of Edwards' improvement. He is in strict training now (at Harvard University) and doesn't even take a drink of liquor. He is pretty sure of making the Quad Bike team for the race with Pennsy. All his best friends are leading athletes. He met Hugh O'Donnell and Frost Thorn; they are with Fanny Davenport. Hugh and Frost do not speak. Irene is still the same to Oscar.

 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Father McSweeny asks whether (Orestes A. Brownson) ever visited Europe and also what languages he knew, his apology for asking being his esteem and love for his learning and the nobility of his character. He also asks whether Joseph H. Johnson, pastor of Christ Church in Detroit, who has been elected Bishop of Los Angeles, gained the place through his superior merit or through the influence of his wife's relations.

Lentz, Father F. G.: Bement, Illinois
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Since he last wrote Father Lentz has become a missioner among heathens, only not in Asia or Africa. His small successes encourage him to persevere in a new movement, in which Brownson can be of assistance by sending out a number of copies (of a circular) with his name and recommendation.

 Enclosure: 

1896 March 6
Lentz, Father F. B.: (Bement, Illinois)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

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

Will Hudson order the new English life of St. Anthony for Stoddard. (Maurice Francis) E(gan?) is frivolous, superficial, treacherous and untrustworthy in all things; a living lie. He is a greatly disappointed man. Not one in the place but would be glad to see him go. No one trusts him or likes his officious manner. He is a huge humbug with the touch of the knave in him.

1896 Mar. 6
Walsh, E(dward) R.: Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He is sorry to hear that Edwards is down with the grippe. Walsh was laid up with it for about thirty days. The only thing he could find to help him was whiskey, hot milk, and raw egg. He hardly knows how to thank Edwards and Father Morrissey for their kindness to him during his stay at Notre Dame. He sent five cases of Alamanris Water.

(Egan), M(aurice Francis): Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Charles Warren) Stoddard is in high spirits. A little appreciation goes a great way with him. Egan is polishing up a poem for the Children's Department. He hears some regrets that "Sunday Nights with Friends" stopped. He wants to print "Edward Conway" and two Chumleigh stories on his own account. Egan is much better in health than he has been of late.

 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Last fall Moreschini was invited by the Superioress of the Convent of the Good Shepherd to call there and see a sister with cancer in her throat. He told the sister to make a novena to St. Philip. One of the sisters said she was perfectly cured. This afternoon Moreschini will see Father (B.) Baldi, (O.S.), and give him Hudson's compliments.

1896 Mar. 10
Tettemer, Father Joseph H.: Washington, D.C.
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

He is a young priest from St. Louis who has been making a study of the system of ideal intuition as put forth in the books of Orestes A. Brownson. On St. Thomas' Day he read a paper on the saint and his philosophy, unfolding the system of ideal intuition using quotations from the "Summa" at a public entertainment at the Catholic University of America. His thesis has started a controversy among all of the professors and students. He cannot answer some of the objections and asks Brownson to help him understand the system as explained by Orestes Brownson, so that Brownson's system will catch on there and thus be disseminated throughout the land. Henry Brownson strikes a keynote when he says that Catholic Apologetics are nothing without Orestes Brownson's philosophy.

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

Peries, Father George: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Maurice Francis) Egan wrote Hudson recently about him. Peries has just written a paper on the matter of worship due the relics of the saints. Would such matter suit Hudson for the Ave Maria? Peries asks Hudson's conditions.

Rhodius, M(arie): Indianapolis, (Indiana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She would have answered Edwards' letter before this but they thought that George (Rhodius) would come home, but they have not seen nor heard anything of him. She would have been glad if George had stayed with Edwards for a couple of weeks.

Fitzhugh, Catherine D.: (Washington, D. C.)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

She sent the paper containing the notice of her aunt's (Jane Carroll) death. They were not surprised, as she had been delicate for so long. She asks that a notice be published in the Ave Maria.

Jane Carroll, only surviving daughter of Daniel Carroll of Duddington, died Mar. 6, 1896. She has left a most edifying example to all nearest to her. She was devout as a Catholic and a devoted friend to the poor. She was buried from St. Peter's Church where her family had a pew since 1821.

(Schmidt), Oscar: Cambridge, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was delighted to know that Edwards is feeling better. He has established quite a reputation as a baseball player. He thinks the men at Harvard (University) are overtrained. More are hurt at baseball than at football.

The other day Bliss Carman was in to see Stoddard. He says two young friends of his want him to join them in founding a new publishing house. Bliss was one of the frequent contributors to the first and second volumes of the "Chap Book". Stoddard has material for a half dozen volumes. If he uses anything that has been in the Ave Maria he will give full credit.

 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Egan or Stoddard is ever in want of subjects, Portugal has mines of unexplored and weird lore for the romanticist.

Onahan, W(illiam) J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was pleased with the selection of General (William) Rosecrans for the Laetare Medal. Indeed he had anticipated the decision. He rejoices in the assurance of the continued and increasing prosperity of Notre Dame. Edwards is one of his oldest and truest friends. Edwards can count on him whenever he can serve the university.

1896 Mar. 25
Thorne, W(illiam) H(enry): New York, (New York)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

The more Thorne meditates upon Brownson's definitions and explanations of his notion of the intuitions of the mind, the more he feels unable to write of Brownson's book in the spirit of his original plan. He does not say that Brownson is wrong, but he cannot write of him with his present light, without saying so, which he does not wish to do. He thinks the candor of their previous correspondence at least justifies his speaking thus plainly.

Gregori, Fannie: Florence, (Italy)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Her father (Luigi Gregori) is very ill and she asks for prayers. She wishes Edwards to tell Sister Aloysius (C.S.C.) to write her father to send all the pictures he has finished. There is only one undone but she fears he will never have strength to complete it. They are in great expense just now. They would sell the Nativity for $2000 if Notre Dame would buy it. The thought that her father might remain without means of supporting himself enables her to make the sacrifice.

Parsons, Father Reuben: Yonkers, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

On the 10th Parsons sent an article on "Lepers in the Middle Age." As it does not appear in this week's Ave, he fears it has strayed. On the 23rd he sent a paper on "Erasmus." Parsons received the last bound Ave for his own set; the copy he bought was for the Sisters' set. The Laetare Medal committee made a good selection when they picked Gen(eral William Starke) Rosecrans. When they honored Major (Henry F.) Brownson, was it because he is the son of his father?

Egan, Maurice F(rancis): (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will appreciate the sense of duty that obliges him to claim "The Vocation of Edward Conway" and the Chumleigh stories as his property - Hudson having the scroll right only. If Hudson desires a formal requirement of the book rights of his other contributions, Egan is ready to make it. If Hudson does not answer this definitively, he will in ten days print the book on his own account.
