 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Bromage sends a copy of his pamphlet on Father John Kemble. They are trying to raise a memorial to the martyr.

The undergraduates at Oxford are cared for by Father (Charles H.) Kennard, who was an Anglican minister for many years, like Bromage. Father A(rthur) S. Barnes, also a former Anglican minister has been appointed chaplain at Cambridge in the place of Father (Edmund?) Nolan. Bromage will be pleased to send Hudson an article from time to time.

Ganss, Father H(enry) G.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

In spite of their harshness of manner and bluntness of speech, the Germans are unflinchingly attached to the Church. If only they were not so dogmatic and dictatorial. Bishop (Sebastian Gebhard) Messmer whose tactful interposition prevented the Federationists from stultifying itself has not yet given permission to publish Ganss' letter to him. A Mother Catherine of Adanah, Wisconsin stated to a German priest named Father ( ) Thiel that all the Indian children who went to Carlisle from her school returned "irreclaimable infidels". The priest gave the information to "Preuss' Review" and a number of German papers. Ganss induced Colonel (Richard Henry) Pratt to publish the rules regulating Church membership and send Hudson a copy. To see papers, priests and nuns spreading falsehood will not redound to their credit. A dramatic narration could be furnished by Father Aloysius, O.S.B., of White Earth Reservation. Tomorrow Ganss appeals for winter clothes for their Sioux.

Sometimes Maes is overwhelmed about the way canon law is abused in this country. Before leaving for Europe he asked Father (Thomas) Bouquillon to write a book on what is of essential belief in the Catholic Church. Oct. 30: Maes had already read the "Kentucky pastel". (Anna C.) Minogue writes well, but she is under influences which bode no good for her perseverance in the Faith.

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

From Brownson's prompt return of O'Donnell's work, Doyle judges that he did not care to read it. Doyle himself has not read it, but looking it over now, sees that it seems to be an A.P.A. publication. He asks Henry what he thinks of the coal strike. Has not the President's recognition of Mitchell given a great encouragement to Unionism? He thinks that the strike has hastened the advent of Socialism but the worst phase of the business was the attitude of the press in "its cringing to the labor element". The "Nation" and probably the "Evening Post" were notable exceptions.

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

Doyle thanks Brownson for his letter of the 24th. He read O'Donnell's book yesterday and agrees with Henry that the book is too vehement. Father (Joseph J.) Oberle thinks it would be more effective if it were milder and that O'Donnell must have some personal grievance against both the Bishops and the Jesuits. His remarks about its, A.P.A. character were based on the quotations preceding the title page and on the extracts in the appendix. Father Oberle asks why Brownson does not write a philosophy, thinking there would be a demand for it. He sent the Tablet of August 30 but supposes that Brownson does not care for such an old number.
