O'Growney, Father Eugene: San Diego, Cal(ifornia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame. Indiana)

O'Growney is an invalid and in the various hospitals where he has lived he has come into contact with people driven to think of the supreme questions connected with future life. What we need is a few small simple booklets, such as Father Henry G. Ganss has recently given. A small book on natural theology is what we need badly. The Ave Maria could do good by finding suitable writers.

Egan has just had a letter from Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding. Egan has returned again from Philadelphia. His mother is better. He thinks of doing "Miss Guiney" next. He began (John) Augustin Daly before he died. His funeral was most pathetic. How grateful Mrs. Daly is to Notre Dame. Kilner has had some requests about "A Raft in Mid-Ocean". Egan referred him to Hudson. He wishes that Hudson would let him have the second part of "Jack Chumleigh". He thinks of sending Marie (Egan) to St. Mary's next year. Spalding's letter is a "mental cocktail".

Funk, Robert S.: La Crosse, Wis(consin)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He hasn't been very well since his return home. He expects to have an operation performed soon. It will spoil his summer but he would rather do it now than in the fall as he is too much of a student to lose all that time. Notre Dame isn't the worst place but then there are some much better. He'll be back the first day.

Howley, Father Rich(ar)d: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Howley was glad Hudson liked his 198 story. As soon as he can he will go to Wexford to gather material relative to the source of the tale. It is not improbable that he will cast the whole drama in Ireland. The life of a boarding house is irksome to a thinker and student. Howley was pleased that his brother impressed them all. (In a postscript); Howley is again on the move and doesn't know when he will next be in London. Hudson may send letters c/o Dr. W(illia)m Healy.

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

Zahm will try to show how unjust Jarlath's action is. He is a religious himself and in the years of his connection with the Ave Maria he has proved his respect for religious communities. The Ave Maria never misses an opportunity of favoring anything Franciscan. There could be no insult to Jarlath's community in his notice of "Life in a Monastery". Father Robert, (C.P.), must have assured Jarlath of this. Should Jarlath repeat his accusation publicly, he will be constrained to publish this letter. (Zahm) is sending copies of it to the two provincials and Father Robert.

Taunton, Father Ethelred L.: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is so rarely that Taunton sees the Ave Maria that he did not know whether his ms. was appearing. He is writing from Devonshire. His "English Jesuits" will be out in the autumn. He has already been attacked by the Provincial Jesuit. He sent his articles to the "Catholic World" entirely on "spec". (Herbert) Cardinal Vaughan has settled to tack on the Metropolitan Church to French Benedictines.

Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan has been unwell since her return home. More manuscript will follow in a day or two. She would prefer more solid proofs of appreciation for her books than flattering notices. "Weighed in the Balance" will be her final work in the field of Catholic literature.

Dwight, Thomas: Nahant, (Massachusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dwight is disturbed by an article in the London "Tablet" of June 24 entitled "Evolution and Upholders". Dwight feels that a man in his position is entitled to know the truth. He would write to Father (John A.) Zahm, (C.S.C.), if he knew him. In his lectures on anatomy Dwight tells his class that all difference between man's body and that of the lower animals is a difference of degree. He does not see how that position can be questioned. He wrote to Abb'e (John B.) Hogan, (S.S.), to ask whether it was allowable to teach the derivation of a body from a lower animal; he replied that it was. It is annoying to find that there is presumably grave doubt as to whether such an hypothesis can ever be taught. There is an allusion in the article to a work of Professor (Hermann) Schell being put on the Index. Dwight asks the name of the book and whether Schell is formerly of the Catholic University.

Starbuck, Charles C.: Andover, Mass(achusetts)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They expect soon to move to Harvard as Starbuck's youngest son is entering freshman year at Harvard. His elder son Eric (Starbuck) graduated last year magna cum laude. (John Alfred) Faulkner has gone to such lengths of shamelessness in defending Luther's worst indecencies that Starbuck has broken off communication with him. Why does Hudson have a spite against John Bunyan? Starbuck thinks that more frankness in Catholic publications in recognizing that "grace is given out of the Church" would do them no harm.

(Gibbons, Arthur M. J.) Gibbie: Dayton, Ohio
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is a clerk and assistant stock-keeper of the store and is kept rather busy most of the time. Jim Welton, a graduate of Notre Dame 30 years ago, is now traveling for the Michigan Stove Co.; he asked about Edwards and others. He hopes Edwards can find time to visit him.

(Myers), D(orrance): Dubuque, Iowa
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has been busy rowing. In the local regatta he was lucky enough to make the crew for the state regatta and that took most of his time. They had a great time at the state meet but did not win. Their three girls, Mary, Emilie, and Tudie are away. Father Morrissey refunded his $5.

Kitson, Samuel J.: Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Kitson would like Brownson to see the colossal head he is modelling of (Orestes A. Brownson), which is still in the clay. Several gentlemen who knew him are very much pleased with the work, but it would be far more valuable for Kitson to have Brownson's suggestions and Brownson is to let him know whether he can visit Boston in the near future. He still has the photographs Brownson sent him.

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

Hudson is a lucky man to have such a staff of delightful writers. He is sending part of "The Birth of Mary". O'Kennedy wants Hudson to make a choice for next year. "Our Lord in the Breviary" or "Our Lady in the Missal".

 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He was called upon by a young man named Max Ford who claims he is a converted Isralite and had been in the Novitiate at Notre Dame prepaing to join the Brotherhood but that he had aspirations for the priesthood. Kinsella asks that Edwards have Father (William) Connors, (C.S.C.) advise him the record of Ford. Ford has been procuring money from a great many men claiming he has not means of support.

Proulx, Father M. G.: Nicolet, (Quebec, Canada)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

When Father Proulx receives the Jan., 1846, issue (of Brownson's Review), he will have all the numbers except for 1844, Jan., 1852, and Jan., 1857, since he was able to get all the other missing numbers through other agencies. He can let Brownson have Jan. and July, 1851, and Jan., 1862. He encloses $1 for the Jan., 1846, issue.

Corre, Father J( ) M.: Kumamoto, Japan
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Corre thanks Hudson for his gifts for the lepers. Work has begun in Biwasaki, Kumamoto and Yatsushiro. Biwasaki is a district near Kumamoto, a place which from time immemorial has been a place of refuge for lepers and sick people. Last year they received Franciscan nuns for the purpose of caring for the ill. There is room for 446. Many have died or have left. Here 100 remain. In Kumamoto the work is entrusted to the Sisters of the Infant Jesus. In Yatsuschiro work of the sick is done by catechists. The erection of a hospital in Biwasha is urgently needed, but $6,000 is lacking.
