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

(Carroll), Francis E.: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is working away the old standmaking over old organs and sometimes cleaning consciences. It is a merry and a sad life that a professional man often meets with in the daily routine and no Christianity but rank agnosticism and materialism is stalking around. The east winds from the ocean are very penetrating and so productive of lung trouble. The photos he sends were taken by Alice and himself.

(1902) Jan. 17
Halle, Marie(?): Manchester, (England)

Bellord, Bishop James: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It was the mercy of God that his articles did not go where they might have gone. Now the catechism is not going in England, but an American priest has ordered 100; Father (Cyrill) Van der Donckt of Pocatello, Idaho wrote for 500. The C(atholic) T(ruth) S(ociety) asked Bellord for 50 pamphlets. He hopes (James) Britten will write to Hudson.

Fernow, Sophie: Ithaca, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is very strange and interesting to notice the various relations among human beings. Last fall she came pretty near losing her life by blood poisoning. That was when Edwards came from Europe with a broken ankle. She wonders what became of the horsy Englishman who grew so attached to Edwards. All feelings are known and understood in Rome.

1902 Jan. 26
McQuaid, Bishop B(ernard) J(oseph): Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The priest in charge of the wine business wrote to Hudson's correspondent in India that St. Bernard's declined requests of agencies to handle its altar wine. Since becoming a priest 50 years ago two dominant thoughts have been in McQuaid's mind: first, that the building of the Church in America must come from its priesthood, and second, the gathering into its schools of all Catholic children. The clipping he sends (no enclosure) shows a step in advance by bringing together in later years those educated in Catholic schools. The mission clipping gave McQuaid's remarks at the funeral of Father (James J.) Leary.
