Jarlath, O.F.M., Father: Killarney, (Ireland)
 to Father (John A. Zahm, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Jarlath is sorry that the editor of the Ave Maria (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.), saw fit to insult two provinces of their order in the notice of a renegade's infamous book - Nov. 5 "Life in a Monastery". Jarlath had written a long paper on this Americanism which he read there for Father( ) Robert, C.P., but this he now destroys. Is it fair to accept the calumnies of a renegade for he is now Secretary of the Agnostics of London. They end their subscription to the "Ave Maria".

Ford, A. B(rendan): New York, (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Ford is thinking of publishing in the Freeman's Journal weekly chapters of the "Two Brothers" and perhaps afterward other matter that appeared in Brownson's Review; but as Brownson has published this in permanent nor form, he would not do so without his if he thought this republication would lessen the sale of the books, though it ought to have a tendency to increase their sale and at the same time awaken interest in (Orestes A. Brownson) in some who know him only in name and are unacquainted with the writings of the great reviewer.

1899 June 12
White, P. J.: Scranton, P(ennsylvani)a
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

It is not White's fault that he has been slow in sending Brownson orders, for he has tried enough and received quite a number of promises, but when he calls they plead in ability and excuse themselves by the scarcity of money and their inability to make collections. Times were never worse in the coal fields of the Anthracite region. Brownson will have found (John) Jordan of the Scranton Truth all right as White informed him—honorable and quite reliable. He will see what he can do among the promised gentry of the town. Brownson is to remit in full, with statement of account.

Nash, E. W.: New York, (New York)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Regarding Louis, he had two telegrams from him about money. Want of money seems to be a chronic ailment of his. Louis says he has worked harder than he ever did before. This may not be saying very much. He encloses Louis' last note in which Edwards will notice that his diction is not excellent, the handwriting and spelling is poor.

1899 June 12
(Nash), Louis: Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to (E. W. Nash: New York, New York)

He was surprised to see that his father had not sent him some money to go home on, but he guesses he can get some from Prof. Edwards. He has done three times the amount of work this year than he has ever done before.

Russell, S.J., Father Matthew: Dublin, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Russell thinks that Father (Patrick A.) Sheehan of Doneraile is not yet a contributor to the Ave Maria. His serial in the "American Ecclesiastical Review" has attracted great attention. Russell encloses Sheehan's note about the poem which goes to Hudson by this mail. Burns and Oates sent eleven copies of Russell's book "Close to the Altar Rails" to eleven American journals. They cannot have overlooked the Ave Maria. He sends the silver jubilee index of the "Irish Monthly".


(18)99 Jun. 10
Sheehan, Father P(atrick) A.: Doneraile, (Ireland)
 to Father Matthew Russell, S.J.: (Dublin, Ireland)

Sheehan sends the poem of the "Magnificat". He would be thankful if Russell would forward it to Father Hudson. His hope is that Hudson might bring it out through the Ave Maria press in a quarto booklet.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Philadelphia, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard could not go to the commencement exercises for fear of being overcome by the heat. He knows that the Varsity is the incubus that is sucking his life out. He would be happy never again to be obliged to lay eyes on the Catholic University. He leaves for the north next week.

Kilroy, Father E(dmund) B.: Stratford, Ontario, Canada
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He had several letters from Notre Dame but not a word about Edwards. He just got back from Toronto and Niagara Falls where they had a celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the Loretto Nuns. Their Loretto Abbey is the largest and finest boarding school in Canada. The new archbishop of Toronto (Denis) O'Connor(C.S.B.) is an old friend of Kilroy's. Kilroy asks that Edwards return his Commissions from the state of Indiana to the Army of the Cumberland. Father Corby took them to Notre Dame when he last visited Kilroy. He is glad the president of Notre Dame is such a success. He supposes Father (John A.) Zahm is devoting all his time to the spiritual advancement of the Community.

Bonnet, Father Joseph: New York, (New York)
 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

Bonnet wants to reconsider his offer to exchange situations with Canon (L.M.) Petit. He cannot see why he should sacrifice his situation to Petit, who seems to have a hand in this trouble and who is blaming Bonnet for efforts to remove him. Bonnet guesses he will stay with the Helpers of the Holy Souls. As to residing at Father (Frederick) Tetreau's, it would mean a fight, and Bonnet doubts that the annoyance would be worth (Corrigan)'s while.

 to (James F. Edw ards): Notre Dame, Indiana)

Edwards' beautiful present was received in good order. The painting will have the most conspicuous place in this new house when it is finished. Building a house is more of a job than one figures on at the outset. In the meantime he has to be a grass widower. They are to have their big law suit with the Diamond Match Co. next month.

 to Archbishop (Michael Augustine Corrigan: New York, New York)

(Corrigan) should leave the train at Conesus and a conveyance will be there to meet him. He should bring Father (Thomas) Myhan along. Archbishop (John Joseph) Williams and Msgr. (Thomas) Magennis will reach Rochester Saturday morning and Hemlock the same day. (Corrigan) is wise in escaping from the 4th of July and its noisy celebrations. He will be wiser yet if he leaves behind all business and care.

(Myers), Geo(rge W.): Dubuque, Iowa
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Cupid and he has been fluttering around now for some months. They will go to Omaha for a few days to see Ad in a play. He thinks D(orrance) would join Edwards' party quite willingly. (Au)Gus(t) Cooper was married quietly to a non Catholic. The ceremony was performed by the Archbishop (John Hennessy) in the girl's home. This has caused some criticism as he has refused to allow his priests to go to the homes in cases of mixed marriages.

Brownson, H(enry) F.: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Brownson sends the material from which Hudson can select. (A. Bredan) Ford of the "Freeman's Journal" wrote the other day that he thought of publishing "The Two Brothers". The main thing is to circulate solid literature as much as possible. Brownson cannot bring the rest of his father's life into one volume. The period from 1856 to 1876 will fill another volume. Orestes and Elise (Brownson) nearly exhausted their mother's strength by requiring constant nursing.
