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

The catechisms arrived. Bellord's notion is that as time goes on the catechism might be adopted in America and Australia. After the Ave Maria has been fully rewarded, he should like to benefit the Negro missions of the U.S.A. As long as the S(ociety of) the H(oly) G(host) continues working for the Negroes the funds might to to them.

Fitte, C.S.C., Father S(tanislaus) F.: Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards:

The enclosed clipping speaks for itself, a romance ending in a shameful tragedy. The Chicago papers say that she became a Catholic before her wedding, that the couple is still in jail, that deep investigation is going on in connection with the poisoning by arsenic, and that Dr. Austin O'Malley's condition is about the same in St. Agnes Hospital. George Clarke said that O'Malley's lower limbs are absolutely paralyzed. Fitte was with Mr. and Mrs. Paradis last evening.

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

Taunton is sending a portrait of Murillo's Assumption. He is laid up with a bad knee. Mrs. Bagot is the mother of Richard Bagot the novelist. He was never instructed before he was received. Their bishops have passed a salutary law that application has to be made to the ordinary of each diocese in each case of receiving a convert. Great mischief has arisen from the policy of convert hunting. The Society and Oratory have been the greatest offenders.

Fitte, C.S.C., Father S(tanislaus) F.: Notre Dame, (Indiana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards:

Every day the Chicago papers have a column of particulars on the (Austin) O'Malley case. It is a sad affair, indeed. The chapter opened this morning. No changes expected at Notre Dame. Fitte will probably spend a few weeks in Canton.

H(udson, C.S.C.), Father D(anial) E.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards:

Yes, Mr. (Patrick C.) Boyle is a noble man. It is too bad he was not treated more considerately by the college authorities. Maurice F(rancis Egan) was there on a visit; he seemed more serious than usual and not perfectly at ease. That is probably a rumor about Msgr (Robert) Seton though he would he just the one for the chair named. What a sensation the O'Malley affair has made! It is unlikely (Austin) O'Malley will recover. They had a splendid retreat by Father (Elias H.) Younan, C.S.P.

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

Tiernan is glad the story pleased Hudson. Would Hudson like to publish "A Daughter of the Sierra"?

Doyle, W(illia)m T.: Milwaukee, (Wisconsin)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Doyle is sending by mail the Tablets of June 21 and 28. He calls Brownson's attention to the article on Free Masonry, the articles on Lord Acton, and asks if Albert Pike's book was an invention of Leo Taxil.

Seton, Msgr. Robert: Rome, Italy
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Ind)

Edwards may find more letters from Seton than he cares to read. Father P.W. Smith is to be there on the 21st. He had a reception for a few Americans; he lists them. There will be advantages if he dies in his apartment; the things he wants to go home and to Notre Dame (University) will find their way. Paul Revere died last fall. Letters to Seton mention a rumor about him returning to accept a professorship in the Catholic University at Washington; he would never think of it. The position would not be commensurate to his merits and lucrative enough for him. He has letters from students in Jersey City; it is consoling to be loved. He will take a trip though Central and Northern Italy. Edwards should send the check to his permanent place and Father Linneborn will take care of it.

1902 July 13
Seton, Msgr. Rob(er)t: Rome, Italy
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is waiting for his former curate, Father P.W. Smith. He is morally certain that the Trenton Ecclesiastic is Bishop (Francis) McFaul. His brother (William Seton) feels acutely being called a "dangerous enemy of Religion." McFaul never moved socially in the spheres in which William Seton was born. Edwards can find the Signum among the papers he sent to Notre Dame. Should his diary ever see publication, he wants no initials but every name in full and the diary as he has written it. He wishes he had a collection of the notices of himself that have appeared in the papers. A complimentary notice of him appeared in the "Vera Roma", the Vatican organ, which he encloses.

Rhodius, M(arie) by W.: Indianapolis, Ind(iana)
 to (James F. Edwards):

There is no change whatever in George's condition. She does not think that anything could be done for George if Edwards was there. It would be a torture to Edwards to see George the way he is.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): North Adams, Mass(achusetts)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard is at last among ancestral hills. His mother and Grandfather Freeman were born in Berkshire. He is with one of his old pupils who is studying for the priesthood at the Grand Seminary, Montreal. Stoddard hopes to pull his novel into shape and pass it to the hands of Fred Harriott. He has been successful with his wife's work; she is Clara Morris.

Fallon, (Father) W. A.: Fortress Monroe, V(irgini)a
 to Lillian Westervelt: (Boston, Massachusetts)

He thanks her for being on the list for the next distribution of Sanctuary goods. He is ordered by the War Department to build a new Church at the Fortress. As the greater part of his congregation consists of soldiers, he would appreciate a kind word to the charitable of her society.

O'Byrne, J(ohn) J.: New Haven, C(onnecticu)t
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Brownson's note and statement forwarded from Brooklyn was received a few days ago but owing to the fact that Father Quinn's set was sent before he could make payment, he did not make the first payment until last week. Father Mangell has paid $12.00 on his set so far. O'Byrne is going home before the end of the week and will settle for both sets. Since he moved to 51st Street about a month ago, he was too busy and upset to do anything about the matter.

C(arroll), F(rancis) E.: Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was pleased that Edwards consulted the physician; it is always well to obtain an unbiased judgement. He gives a diet by which Edwards will preserve his good health. He will advise Edwards when he sees him. He would be pleased to escort Edwards' trouble comes from disposition to Rheumatism.

Cleary, Father Henry W.: Enniscorthy, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Mark) Twain and Cleary became fast friends and he saw a good deal of him during his stay in central Victoria. Cleary's two travelling companions retain kindly recollections of their stay at Notre Dame.

Rhodius, M(arie) by W.: Indianapolis, (Indiana)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

She received Edwards' letter. Mr. Balke and his sister came to congratulate (George) Rhodius, but she did not say a word nor did she make him any present. She tried by kindness to convert him from his wretched life but it was in vain; now she will be severe and just. She hopes Edwards enjoys his trip.

Odiorne, Ruth C.: Elizabeth, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Henry (F. Brownson): (Detroit, Michigan)

Ruth thanks her uncle for the three volume life of Grandpa which she received the early part of the week. She will read them as soon as the opportunity presents itself. Mary has probably told him that she (Ruth) is the proud possessor of a little girl and a baby boy. Though very dear, they keep her busy. She wishes her uncle every success with his book.

Wheelock & Co., Geo(rge) H.: South Bend, Ind(iana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Edwards will remember they had a conversation about steins for the University sometime ago. They have started a man to Europe and wish to have him get up a line of Notre Dame steins. They would like to have Edwards make suggestions for the motto and send samples of the school colors, and some pictures of buildings.

O'Byrne, J. J.: Brooklyn, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

O'Byrne encloses a check for $10.25 for the recent bill for the two sets of the works. A dollar and twenty five cents is to be taken out to cover express charges. He wishes the bill to be receipted and sent to the above address. Father Mangell has paid only $12.00 so far, missing several payments, and Father Quinn has made only one payment as yet, but will make subsequent payments. Since he does not have a bank account, he asks Brownson not to send to the bank for collection. He promises to send money orders about the time or soon after the payments are due and hopes this will be satisfactory.

S(eton), Msgr. R(obert): Rome, Italy
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He received Edwards' long letter. He never heard of the O'Malley case before, but remembers one case connected with Seton Hall. There is no prospect of his returning to America. He asks Edwards to wait to send the money for the books. His old curate, Father P. W. Smith arrived with a band of American pilgrims. Cardinal Ledowkosky died yesterday morning. Satolli, Vincenzo, and Martinelli are spoken of as Ledowkosky's successor. He seeks nothing, pays court to no one, and has no interest in these matters, but will be content to remain what he is. A foreigner without money is less than nobody in Rome. He gave very generously for years to many people. Edwards knows that he worked thirty-five years at Madison and Jersey City. He heard Abp. Feehan of Chicago was dead.

Nester, Frank P.: Duluth, Minn(esota)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Smith, H. Parker: Brookline, (Massachusetts)
 to (Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan)

She took the enclosed from the "Transcript" about Brownson's friend who died. She read a flattering account which called him the most learned man in Europe. Annie wanted to send a photograph of John ( ) to Brownson's nephew Dr. John (Brownson) of Dubuque, Iowa. She will have some copies made of an old daguerotype; Brownson may have one if he wishes it. She is ninety years old, one year younger than the Pope. Miss ( ) Dana died last September; nearly all of Orestes Brownson's friends are dead. She would like to receive a letter from Brownson telling her the family news.

H(udson, C.S.C.), Father D(aniel) E.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards:

Miss Schwab wants him to go to Loretto with her, but at present he is in dread of chills. He asks to be remembered to Mr. Onahan. He hopes Mr. Nester has a worthy wife. The (Austin) O'Malley affair seems to have ended; he is improving and will return to Notre Dame at Christimas. Father (William) Maloney, C.S.C. is superior at the professed House in place of Father (Peter) Franciscus who goes to Watertown. Father Reifer of New Orleans has left.

Muir, A.: Portland, Maine
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He writes just a line to thank Edwards for all he has done for them. Since they are going to a seaside resort, he will take time then and give Edwards a full history. Married life is the only life and he is blessed with "a good girl".

He asks pardon for his tardiness in answering Edwards' letter. He is pleased Edwards is in good condition and "feels his old self again". Alice (Carroll) sends thanks for the Notre Dame, pennant. What delightful weather the country is enjoying! Alice is sick but recovering with God's assistance. He cannot forget Notre Dame.
