(Clarke, Richard H.: New York, New York)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Having felt the need of preserving the files of some Catholic newspaper to meet the needs of Catholic historical students, he attempted and partially succeeded in collecting the "Freeman's Journal", the oldest publication. During the compiling of the writings of Archbishop (John) Huges by Lawrence Kehoe many volumes of the Journal were destroyed. Notre Dame University having received all the volumes which Mr. (John?) McMaster received from his father and drawing on the East, has the only complete set in the country. He possesses the next largest collection. He cites a case showing that collections of such publications should not be in private libraries, but as at Notre Dame, or should be in the library of some public institution. He finds it impossible to have searchers after Catholic historical matter resorting to his library any longer. The interest he thinks Edwards will take in securing to the public use of ths source of information might lead to finding a purchaser with that view; he cannot afford to give it away.
