He read in the Journal that the great gymnasium at Notre Dame (University) was destroyed by fire.

He is trying to persuade his father to allow him to return to Notre Dame.

H(uffer), Leo: (Paris, France)
 to (James F. Edwards):

Their thoughts are always with Edwards and they continue to pray that he may have a pleasant crossing. It has been such a delight to them to have had Edwards with them as part of the family. Edwards' trunk was forwarded to New York. What an unfortunate mishap it was that the railroad company should have made such a mistake. The trunk was found at the Charing Cross station in London. Estelle has been very poorly since Edwards left. He inquires how Edwards' foot is getting on and trusts that by this time he is able to dance about as of old.

(Kiefer) Herbert: Louisville, K(entuck)y
 to (James F.) Edwards:

When Edwards arrives in New York, he must present Herbert's compliments to Rena Marshall. Another of his friends on the Pretoria was the sailor Karl Moller. It is too bad that Edwards lost his trunk. He does not see how he managed to live on the steamer with only one collar and handkerchief. At one football game Notre Dame was beaten 64 to 0, and soon after won a game 61 to 0. He thanks Edwards for the postals.

Barton, Francis W.: New York, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (James F.) Edwards:

He was sorry to learn of the loss of Notre Dame's fine gymnasium. He looks back to his four years at Notre Dame as the happiest days of his life. His association with Edwards and the little Crescent Club orchestra seems to stand out over it all. Notwithstanding appearances he always felt kindly toward Edwards. He trusted that Edwards would try to forget the unpleasant part. He only thought when at Notre Dame of the days when he should enter his Medical course. He expects to take his M.D. degree in June. P.S. His room-mate has just read him an account of a second fire at Notre Dame.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The box came. Stoddard dined at Holy Cross and believes they will let him go there if he has to give up the Bungalow. His sister's finances are impaired. Fathers (John W.?) Cavanaugh, (C.S.C.) and (William A.?) Moloney, (C.S.C.), were there. Stoddard likes Hudson's answer to "The Churchman".

(Kiefer), Herbert: Louisville, K(entuck)y
 to (James F.) Edwards:

He appreciates the postal cards Edwards sent for his collection. While working in the shop at school a piece of iron injured his eye. This prevented him from studying. They wait for Edwards to tell them when he will come to Louisville. They have some new china.

Taylor, Ja(me)s P.: Kingston, Ont(ario, Canada)
 to (Henry F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

As a steady reader of Vols. I & II of Dr. (Orestes A.) Brownson's philosophy, Taylor has learned that there are two distinct ways of thinking, direct and indirect, or intuitive thought and reflective thought, and two kinds of judgments, synthetic and analytic. Brownson makes it plain that synthetic judgments are formed by the affirmation of the object and the acquiescence of the subject, but Taylor asks how judgments are formed in the reflective order. He will appreciate Brownson's enlightening him.

He watched all the papers to see when the Pretoria arrived and was very glad to find out that Edwards was safe. His parents want Edwards to spend a few days with them. He sees Notre Dame is having hard luck in the way of fires.
