Malone, W( ) F.: Manila, P(hilipine) I(slands)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Malone has been dismissed from the service of the United States and is devoting his time to building up the Catholic Club, the object of which is to offset the work of the American evangelizers. He wishes time would permit him to outline the pernicious effects of American occupation of the Philippines. He has written to Father W(illiam) T. Russell, secretary to Cardinal Gibbons, a letter on the situation. Malone has written to Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding, Father (Arthur) Kenny of Baltimore, Archbishop (Patrick John) Ryan of Philadelphia and many others. So called Catholic officers have been among those who entered the convents to dispoil the sanctuaries. Methodists, Baptists and others use emblems stolen from Christian altars to ensnare the natives from Mother Church. American officers returned to the United States leaving fatherless children and pregnant wives. In Manila they have a priest, Father ( ) Conrath, S.J., who is devoting his whole time to their side. The public schools are now turned into "meeting houses". The breweries are doing the greatest damage. Conrath stopped there on his way home from Australia to Austria. When he saw the deplorable condition, he volunteered to remain. It is San Ignacio Church of which the St. Louis Globe Democrat speaks. Since their coming the church has witnessed its first baptism, that of J. B. McElroy of the Hospital Corps. The sponsor was G( ) L. Baldwin, treasurer of the Catholic Club. The club is under the patronage of St. Michael and the Archbishop of Manila, Bernardino Nozaleda de Villa, is its sponsor. They are short of funds and reading matter.

Coppens, S.J., Father C(harles): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father Coppens came near visiting Detroit this vacation, but missed it, and is disappointed not to have been able to call on Brownson. He is now giving a retreat in Chicago, but next week will go back to Creighton University, Omaha. Omaha is a very unpromising place for Catholicity except for the devotedness of the good Creighton family. The city is said to have a population of 140,000 but only some 10 or 12,000 Catholics. The vast majority of the inhabitants are not church goers at all, but Christian Scientists, theosophists, spiritualists, etc., are very numerous, and Bob Ingersoll used to draw large audiences. Meanwhile the Catholics are quietly working on, trying to leven the mass of the people and sanctifying the children of the Church. The Creighton Medical College has grown since Father Coppens came here from 56 to 106 students, and the prospects are flattering for it to go up to 130 next session. Father M(artin) P. Dowling, S.J., is President and is making things move briskly up hill; for their work is arduous with the very scanty endowment on which they subsist. Yet, they are succeeding fairly well. He hopes that Brownson is well; he himself is getting younger every day. He has read (Leo)Pike's "Dogma and Morals" and has written, with the aid of hints from Brownson's pamphlet, an article of his own based on its revelations. If his superiors will let him publish it, he will send Brownson a copy.

McClurg, A. C. & Co., per R.Fairclough: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

In reply to Brownson's statement of July 31 for the old on sale account of $54.63, the books representing this amount were on hand at the time of their disastrous fire last February and were completely destroyed. Since they were destroyed, Brownson would not expect them to assume the entire responsibility for the loss at the original invoice price, for that would assure a source of profit to Brownson at a direct loss to McClurg's, which lost upwards of $60,000 on merchandise over and above their insurance. They would like to receive Brownson's view on a compromise.

Doyle, W(illia)m T.: Milwaukee, Wis(consin)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Doyle encloses some notes from the Christian Remembrance on (John Henry Cardinal) Newman's Development of Christian Doctrine written after (Orestes A. Brownson)'s first articles, which the writer quotes. In the Dublin Review for April, 1899, p. 399, in an article entitled "Dr. Fairbairn on Catholicism", William Hunt, O.S.C., says; "It is idle to deny that Newman's writings have done much to throw light on the dark ages of the past. His keen insight and imaginative power often enables him to penetrate and set forth the living evolution of religious history. This is especially the case with his great work on the Development of Christian Doctrine, which Dr. Fairbairn finds so destitute of the historic spirit," etc. Father (Francis B.) Klocker, S.J., who is to teach the scholastics at St. Louis this year, said that Father T(h)om(as) O'Neill, S.J., for many years provincial, was opposed to the purchase of Newman's works, except "The Idea of a University" and a few others, as he held them to be unsound. Doyle hopes to call on Brownson on his return from New York the latter part of next week.

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

They were having a great time camping. Mary came home from Ashville; she gained seven pounds. If Edwards can get there before the races it will be better for both of them. During the races he will be away from home most of the time.

(Theodore F.) Dwight and Stoddard are alone in the house. Stoddard misses Kenneth (O'Connor) very much. He would like to finish the E1 Dorado papers first and do a good St. Ann paper.

Clark, Frederic Horace: Valparaiso, Ind(iana)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Clark asks Hudson to stop sending the Ave Maria for a time. Since Father (John) Dempsey was driven from their Church by the boycott of the "liberal" members Clark's heart has bled in obedience. He prayed that Father Louis A. Moench would see the great wrong he is upholding. With steadfastness Father (John H.) Bathe and Moench could have succeeded in the work Dempsey began. Clark will not be present at heretical worship; at the same time he will try to obey Moench. The organist of their church goes and plays accompaniments in College Chapel - the same thing Bishop (Joseph) Rademacher forbade Clark. Now their bishop has been or still is insane. Clark will never again harmonize with non-Catholic worship. The pamphlet, "America or Heaven", in which he hoped to arouse Moench and the "liberal" Catholics, and the tract have done no good. Clark has seven children now.

(Murphy, Thomas J.) Tom: (College Point, Long Island, N. Y.)

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

Kitson is sorry that Brownson will not be able to see the clay model, but since he has had it photographed and encloses two prints for Brownson's inspection and criticism. The bust is still in clay, and any suggestions he may make will have Kitson's greatest attention. Two prints are inclosed with the letter.

Doyle, W(illia)m T.: Milwaukee, Wis(consin)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

The quotation which Doyle marked and to which ( ) Simpson probably refers is from a lecture read in the School of Medicine, November, 1855, entitled "Christianity and Physical Science;" it was published in a volume of other letters and essays written while Rector of the Catholic University of Ireland; November, 1858, is the date of its preface. Doyle quotes a long passage on the development of Christian Doctrine from the edition of 1898, p. 441, and asks whether this coincides with Simpson's quotation. He does not see what objection Brownson takes to the statement that Our Lord in assuming human nature, although Himself sinless, took upon Himself all our sins, but he believed him to have objected to his statement of it yesterday.

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

D(orrance Myers) started on an advertising trip that will take him as far north as St. Paul. The only reason they suggested that Edwards come either before or after the races was that they expect a number of their customers there who would require most of their time. D is to sell tickets at the track and would be away most of the time. Consequently they could not give Edwards all the time that they want. They would be glad to see him any time.

Oechtering, Father A(ugust) B.: Mishawaka, Indiana
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

It has been his opinion for 35 years that something of the Catholic Church has been wrong in Catholic countries. Otherwise how could the head of the Catholic Church be made a prisoner by his own people. In the Kulturkampf the victory was on the side of the Catholic Church. If in Italy the faith had been thoroughly understood such things as are now happening would not have come to pass. Pope Pius IX once asked the Vicar General of Fort Wayne, Father Julius Benoit, how the priests in the United States made their living.

O'Growney, Father Eugene: Los Angeles, California
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

In "Mischief is Sin" the author takes for granted that there is such a thing as instruction on points with regard to which unbelievers have difficulties. O'Growney has never heard of such instruction. Bishop (George Thomas) Montgomery is a very sane and practical man. He lectures a good deal on practical subjects. So Hudson too is a liberal. O'Growney is not surprised to hear it. Most people who do anything seem to be liberals nowadays. He only wishes that the Pope would read the Ave Maria.

O'Sullivan, T.: Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He takes the liberty of enclosing a few more clippings covering the Clandications of our Christian Clerical Clansmen. No doubt one of Edwards' pupils can put them in order.

Barton, Francis W.: Peru, Ind(iana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Edwards' letter was forwarded to him from Danville. He will take great pleasure in presenting the card to Dr. Coll on his arrival in New York. There are so many students there that he cannot place the doctor. Barton is at the Wabash Employes Hospital as acting assistant house surgeon. It has been a splendid training for him. He met Father (Luke) Evers in New York and had a pleasant chat. Chassaing is playing in some Regiment band; it seems too bad that he is so well satisfied to take life as it comes. There is a Danville boy going to Notre Dame through Barton's influence; his name is Claude Bundy. He will always have a tender spot in his heart for Notre Dame.

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

About a week ago Kitson forwarded two photographs of the bust for Brownson's criticism, but he would find it more satisfactory to have Brownson's suggestions on the model itself. If he could make it convenient to come. Kitson would be glad to pay his traveling expenses and to try to make his visit pleasant.

Spalding, Bishop J(ohn) L(ancaster): Peoria, Illinois
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spalding was thinking of writing to Hudson to express his pleasure at Hudson's article on the Italians. In the midst of the evils which Archbishop (John) Ireland's "new departure" has brought on them it is necessary to speak the truth without circumlocution.

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

Father Coppens has been trying for some years to induce the officers of the Omaha public library to buy a set of Brownson's Works, but they contend that the expense is too heavy, considering that non-Catholics do not know the works extensively and will not take them out. The fact is that the officers generally do not favor Catholics. Father Coppens asks Brownson at what price, in these circumstances. he would sell them the 20 volumes of Brownson's works, since he hopes to induce them to make the purchase if he can offer a reduction obtained at his intercession.

Dijon, Harold: Richmond, V(irgini)a
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Of the hundreds of Italians in Richmond six, the Vicar General tells Dijon, attend Mass. The Ave Maria is read by Protestants who will not look at the "Catholic World", the "Messenger" or the "Month". The author of "Notes on a Catholic Home" is not a convert.

Doyle thinks that the passage mentioned taken from (Cardinal John Henry) Newman's "Idea of a University" is controverted by his other writings. He gives many citations and quotations from Newman's works.

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

Kitson is glad Brownson mentioned beforehand what his expenses would be to come on to see the bust. He had calculated about $40, or not over $50, more than which he cannot afford. It is unfortunate that artists and professional men generally are not wealthy. In his desire to make the bust a great success, he will have another photograph taken this week, which will perhaps give Brownson a better idea of the work.

Huebscher, O.S.B., Frater Leo: N(ew) Y(ork), (New York)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, (Michigan)

Frater Leo has just had the opportunity to read "Brownson's Early Life" and "Faith and Science," both of which gave him immense pleasure, and he looks forward to Brownson's later works. He was most pleased with the chapter in the latter on "The Thomist vs. the Synthetic Philosophy," for he held for years exactly the same views in regard to the Angelic Doctor's interpreters. To absorb fully and criticize Brownson's ideas in chapters 5 and 6, he will have to study the work again. He regrets that priests, or at least teachers in the seminaries, do not take the trouble to understand the great (Orestes A.) Brownson and his devoted son, and that he is unable to spread their writings and sound philosophical views more effectively. Brownson is to send a copy of "An Essay in Refutation of Atheism" and of "Faith and Science," and is asked whether his work on the Blessed Trinity is to be expected soon. He hopes to interest a young priest in his neighborhood, also an assistant, in Brownson's Works. The rectors have too much business on hand to study, and their good example leads many a young priest astray. If God's Church were not His, the clergy would long ago have destroyed it.
