Yesterday O'Kennedy forwarded "The Transfiguration". He was glad to see that Longfellow's daughter is a Catholic.

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

Doyle encloses the copy of an article in the Irish Ecclesiastical Review.

Rogers, S.J., President of Marquette College, whether Divine or human substance is done away with, and he promises an answer.

Fitte, C.S.C., Father S(tanislaus) F.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to James (F.) Edward(s): (Paris, France)

It is settled that Fitte will not go to Europe this year. The annual retreat is over, so is the Chapter. Very few changes at Notre Dame. Father (James A.) Burns goes to Washington to replace Father Peter J.) Franciscus who is appointed Superior of the missionary band so far composed of Father (Peter) Klein and Father Peter Lauth. Father (John J.) O'Rourke replaces Father (John) O'Keeffe who goes as pastor to Austin, Texas with Father Jos(eph) Kirsch as assistant. Father (James) Rogers comes to Notre Dame as superior of the Professed House and assistant pastor. Fitte has seen in the papers that Archbishop (John) Ireland delivered the oration at the unveiling of Lafayette's statue. Maybe Edwards was present. No official news yet concerning the see of Fort Wayne although the prospects brighten in favor of Father John Guendling. Father (D.M.J.) Dowling, vicar-general of Chicago is dead and buried. Both missions of Father Tim(othy) O' Sullivan will soon have residing pastors. Archbishop (Patrick William) Riordan is expected to land today after an absence of ten months. Fitte is sure Edwards is enjoying his stay in the capital of France.

(Huffer), Estelle: Houlgate-Beuzeval, Calvados
 to (James F. Edwards):

Tomorrow or Tuesday Edwards will be at Cherbourg. They are just leaving for the seashore and Edwards can meet them there. It is much better for Edwards to recuperate first and then go on to Paris to see the Exposition. No doubt Edwards heard of the terrible fire at the N. Y. Lloyd docks. No passengers were in the ships that burned.

Randall, Father W(illia)m E.: St. Louis, M(iss)o(uri)
 to Henry F. Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father Randall asks whether the quotation he gives from the Summa Theologica, Pars Prima, Quaestio LXXXIV, is in substance a very satisfactory confirmation of Dr. (Orestes A. Brownson)'s doctrine of Intuition, or whether he makes too much of, or wrests from their proper meaning, St. Thomas' words.

F(oley), Byrd M.: Paris, France
 to (James F.) Edwards:

As much as she was pleased to hear from Edwards she was disappointed to learn of his being so near and yet so far. They have been in Paris two weeks and are having a fine time, but it is fearfully hot. They would have liked to have been on the same steamer as Edwards. She met quite a few young men on the boat. One could spend months seeing the many things in Paris.

H(udson, C.S.C.), Father D(aniel) H.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (James F. Edwards: Paris, France)

He was glad Edwards visited Mgr. Seton before leaving the country. The long vacation will give Edwards a new lease on life. Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding has invited him to Peoria but he has arranged for Spalding to come to him. He does not care to go alone and he cared less about going with those who proposed to accompany him. Brother Augustus died suddendly. Father James A. Burns, (C.S.C.) goes to Washington next year; Father (James) Rogers (C.S.C.) will replace him. Father (John) O'Keefe goes to Austin. Father (Patrick) Condon (C.S.C.) is very feeble.

 to (James F.) Edwards:

He was glad to hear from Edwards. He remembers the nice time he had in Edwards' company and hopes to have the pleasure of seeing more of him. His mother welcomed him with all sorts of attention and his brothers and sisters try to do all in their power to make his stay pleasant. In consequence he was not able to write a postal. Next week he is going to hunt deer.

(Foley), Byrd: Folkestone, England
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

As they could only stay a few days at any watering place, they thought it just as well to stop there. They crossed the channel from Calais. It makes her frantic to think of the fine place Edwards is and so near Paris. Well, there is no use lamenting the fact now. They leave Monday for Scotland and will sail from Liverpool Saturday.

He thought Edwards was going over with the Foleys. He wrote to Birdie wishing her a safe voyage. He thinks he will come down is September to spend a few days with Edwards.

He will miss those morning visits with Edwards when he used to skip drawing and go down to see Edwards and then they would make coffee and eat Uneeda biscuts. When he goes down there they can go to Nichols and hove one of his good beefsteaks.

Fernow, Sophie: Berlin, (Germany)
 to (James F.) Edwards:

Edwards listened to the gossip of some of the passengers on the Graf Waldersee. Mr. Parsons is well married and has a wife and daughter living. She does not care for that gossip a bit. It shows that people were not aware of a true feeling of hers. She enjoyed all that Edwards wrote about the historical places.

He was always where distress and misery prevailed. The Bishop was very popular there. He used to spare himself every comfort so as to have more for the poor.
