Randall, Father W(illia)m E.: Columbia, M(issouri)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Since he has last heard from Brownson. Father Randall has been assigned to the pastorate of Boone County, where his jurisdiction is territorially large but numerically small. Protestantism has, in some remote corners hereabouts, lapsed into senile ability and dissolution. The gilded paganism has lost its veneer, and would shock the Reformers. Since lingering Protestantism is still to be found in some individuals, and since his addresses given publicly, are almost wholly to non-Catholic audiences, Father Randall needs a list of books on the various Protestant arguments for Baptism and the justifications of it given by the various sects. Protestantism is strongly intrenched in their city, Columbia, which has a population of 2,500. There are only about 150 Catholics, mostly fragments of families. In the university of 1000 students there are 21 Catholics, while the majority is composed of infidels with hereditary sectarian leanings. A "Christian" college for women numbers 300 girls and the Baptist girls' academy about 200. Father Randall has forgotten how his name stands on Brownson's account, that is, whether he is a debtor or creditor. He wants a few books for friends which he will order later on.

(Edwards, James F.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (Father Patrick) Parrell: (Cleveland, Ohio)

He should thank Farrell for the delightful time he had at Cleveland attending the Golden Jubilee Ceremonies. The after dinner speeches revealed the paternal spirit which animates the clergy of Cleveland. He was delighted to find the saintly Bishop (Amadeus) Rappe was firmly imbedded in the hearts of the priests and people. The Cathedral is perfect and he liked the color combination. He is sending cigars for Farrell and the Bishop.

Kansley wrote for notes for an article in the Scholastic.

1902 November 9
Randall, Father W(illia)m E.: Columbia, M(issouri)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Father Randall thanks Brownson for his advice regarding the best means of ascertaining the religious opinions of Protestant denominations. Since Brownson has offered his services, he asks him to order the approved and recognized catechisms of the Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Campbellite sects. He asks Brownson to send him volume 19 of the works. He wants it for a young man who is taking a literary course at the University. This young fellow, who is not an isolated individual but a member of a large class in our American Church, has strong faith but his scientific and educational life is dissonant from his spiritual life. His life is as dual as that of an Episcopalian minister. He said to Father Randall one day that he thought that he had read every American author of note, but had never heard of Dr. Brownson. He encloses $3.00 and his best wishes.

Marr, C.S.C., Father William J.:
Columbia University (Portland), Oregon,
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

At last he sends the long expected articles. He wasn't going to send them, convincing himself that it would be virtually the same if the articles remained in their library. Edwards' letter was so diplomatic; that he cannot retain the articles longer.

Parker, W. Th(ornton): Northampton, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Hudson's letter cheered Parker. He wishes to call Hudson's attention to the Tablet Bible number. Does it not seem ludicrous that erratic anonymous Episcopalians are making an untruthful attack upon Parker because of his low church ideas? Bishop (Thomas Daniel) Beaven and the priests there are praying for and helping him.

1902 Nov. 14
Doyle, W(illia)m T.: Milwaukee, (Wisconsin)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Doyle's acquaintance with Father Pahls is so slight that he cannot venture an opinion. He presumes Brownson has read the articles in The Tablet by Father Gerard about O'Donnell's former tribute to Jesuit colleges. Doyle agrees with O'Donnell about the strictures on Jesuit teaching as not being Catholic. The majority of the Jesuits' graduates, as one of their older professors acknowledges, become atheists. Nor do they recognize the virtues of truth or honesty in their teaching and preaching. The worst behaved boys and young men in church during divine services are students or graduates of Jesuit colleges. Their attitude towards the laity is that "the laity exist only for the purpose of contributing or more coarsely 'to be milked.'" In an address before the Marquette College Lyceum, Doyle stated that the clergy must recognize the fact that the laity is an integral part of the Church. This address unfortunately killed the Lyceum since Father (Leopold) Bushart (S.J.), the President of the College would not let it meet again. Doyle thinks that Bishop (John L.) Spalding is sufficiently level headed to do good work on the Commission and Doyle presumes that the President thought that since most of the miners were Catholics, the appointment should be made on that score. He notices that Mr. (Samuel) Gompers is excited over Eliot's eulogy of the non-union man, but he must give Gompers credit for opposing the radical socialistic element in the labor ranks. Gompers is also much opposed to the incorporation of labor unions. He asks if the statement made on pp. 83, Vol. 18 of the Works is not exaggerated; i.e., that Roman law is the basis of law and jurisprudence for Christiandom. His knowledge, solely derived from Blackstone, is such that all good in our laws is from Anglo-Saxon and Teutonic influence and all that is baneful from Roman law.

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

Hudson's letter arrived during Ganss' absence in Washington attending the annual meeting of the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions. He is sure Bishop (John Walter) Shanahan took no offense at Hudson's notice in the Ave Maria. He is a man of zeal and piety but his eccentricities are sometimes of an alarming nature. His work in the diocese is phenomenal. Ganss will continue in the Indian work at least until next April. Quietly, not taking council with anyone but Archbishop (Patrick John) Ryan, Ganss has approached (Theodore) Roosevelt and Indian Commissioner ( ) Jones to bring about amicable relations between the government and Church schools. The government has gone to the extent that it will take the Church schools off their hands. The difficulties are that the government wishes to purchase the buildings and that most of the Sisters in the Indian schools are hardly qualified to do the work. Their Catholic Indian Bureau is fighting the plan tooth and nail. The Administration looks on the Washington Bureau as a sort of political adjunct to the Democratic Party. The plan would save them $50,000 - $75,000 a year. It might even affect their parochial and public schools.

Harson, M. J.: Providence, R(hode) I(sland)
 to (Henry F.) Brownson: (Detroit, Michigan)

Harson is mailing a copy of last week's "Pilot" which will no doubt interest Brownson. It fixes the credit for the Baltimore Congress where it rightfully belongs. The Brownson monument is to be erected in Sherman Park at the intersection of 72nd St. and Amsterdam Avenue, the most desirable location in New York City. It will be erected as soon as the work on the subway there is completed. The bronze bust, a very effective piece of work, has been cast for some time. It will be placed in the Catholic Club pending its erection at the park. The plaster cast is to be sent to Georgetown University.

Brownson, E(rnest) R.: Williston, N(orth) D(akota)
 to H(enry) F. Brownson: Detroit, Michigan

Brownson's nephew, Dr. J.J. Brownson of Dubuque, Iowa, has referred Ernest to Henry Brownson as probably the only one who can give a full account of Orestes A. Brownson's family and his father's family. If time and health permit, Brownson is to fill out the enclosed blanks and to return them with any additional information about his ancestors which he would care to give. There is no doubt that Henry is decended from John (Brownson) or Richard Brownson, who were the original owners of the site of Hartford, Conn. Ernest's line is as follows: Richard Brownson (Died 1687), Cornelius Brownson (born 1648, Timothy (Brownson) (1701-1766), Amos (Brownson) (born 1732), Joel (Brownson) (born 1762), Joel (Brownson) Jr. (born 1792), Alfred (Brownson) (born 1830) and Ernest (born 1870). Someone wrote to his father a long time ago from Detroit but did not seem to know much about the family. Brownson may be the same person. He thanks Brownson in advance for any favors that he may grant.

Brownson, Ernest R.: Williston, N(orth) D(akota)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Their library in Williston is very poor and contains no works of importance. Dr. J. J. Brownson said that Henry Brownson is the only living descendent of Orestes A. Brownson except his family. Is this correct? If he could only go back, one more generation, it would help him establish the connection. Ernest is descended from Richard Brownson and has traced his family from 1640 to the present. Can Brownson give him the address of Rev. Marcus A. Brownson who has gone East?

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

After satisfying himself of his innocence of all charges, McQuaid took up (Father Fidelis Oberholzer)'s defense in a battle that lasted nine years. It went to the Washington Delegation, then to Rome and then back to Washington. During the battle McQuaid never heard a word of bitterness spoken by priest against his accusers. His German priests will never again order a priest to leave the diocese without regard to a bishop's authority. Hudson is to be there during the Christmas holidays to have a good rest. Archb(isho)p (Michael Augustine Corrigan) failed that way. Father (Martin J.) Cluney will entertain Hudson one day. Dean W. Donald of Geneva will do the same. There is no reason why in time Notre Dame should not give a sample of a Catholic university worthy of the name. Among McQuaid's pleasures at Notre Dame was his meeting with Brother Jacob (Francis Cunningham), a pupil of his in 1849.
