Gregori, Fannie: Migliarino Pisano, Italy
 to Father ( ): Notre Dame, Indiana

One of her pupils has a collection of stamps and is very anxious to have it as complete as possible. She asks for assistance. She hopes that all her friends at Notre Dame are well. The troubles in France can bring but sadness.

Fish, Grace S.: (South Bend, Indiana)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Through some wretched mistake her maid did not tell her about going to the train until it was too late. She was so disappointed. She asks Edwards to explain to Oscar.

Hughes, Father H. G.: Shefford, England
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hughes will send Hudson one or two articles about the essentials of Catholic belief. Father (Vincent) McNabb, (O.P.), has put his foot in it. He will have to be careful with an opponent like Father (Herbert) Thurston, (S.J.). Hughes feels McNabb has already committed himself by using too strong language. He noticed Hudson referred to the lively controversy in the "Tablet" about "Catholic and Roman Catholic". Hughes doesn't like the controversial methods of that paper very much. Father Henry Weedall whose name appears in "Notes and Remarks" was not an Anglican bishop.

Hild, Fred H.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Hugh L. Mason: Chicago, (Illinois)

Walsh, Thomas: B(roo)klyn, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Walsh trusts that "The Chagrin of Mother Basil" will not prove too secularized for the Ave Maria. (Charles Warren) Stoddard writes that "Songs from the Eastern Star" by Yoni Noguchi is making a stir in London. "The New International Cyclopedia" people, no doubt terrified by their late experience, handed over their plates for revision by Conde Pallen. It is believed in New York that "Confessions of a Playwright" is by John D. Barry. The editor of Ainslee's Magazine is a Catholic, Richard Duffy.

Hughes, Father H( ) G.: Shefford, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hughes is sending a sketch of "Life in a Roman Cottage". The Catholics in England are looking anxiously to see how the new Education Act (of 1903) will work. There is a general feeling that they have been betrayed and that the Bishops showed a lack of foresight in welcoming the bill with open arms. The fact that the whole of the elementary schools of the country are coordinated and brought under one system of control will make it easy for a future radical government to eliminate religious training altogether. A high government official asked Cardinal (Henry Edward) Manning in 1870, after passing of the Education Act of that year, why Catholics did not claim exceptional treatment; and they might have had it for the asking. The Anglican clergy certainly will suffer. Hudson may use this for "Notes and Remarks". Do not name Hughes as it is a heresy to say that the bishops have made a mistake in the affair.

Mulholland, St. Clair A.: Philadelphia, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Edwards can spare a copy of his "History of 116th Reg. Pa. Vols.", he wishes he would mail it to him. He asks if Edwards saw the article in Donohoe's Magazine for February on the Notre Dame G.A.R. Post.

Reinhart, O.P. Father Albert: Somerset, O(hio)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind (iana)

He mislaid the letter telling him how to send the vestments free of charge. He asks for another. The recollection of his brief stay at Notre Dame is very pleasant.

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

The check for $35 in payment for five installments of "The Transplanting of Tessie" was received. Waggaman thought she was to receive $3 a double columned page. It doesn't pay her to work for less.

Parmentier, Rosine M.: Brooklyn, (New York)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Parmentier set about hunting for information on "The Indian Maiden". She has letters from old friends; she thought she had kept those written to her by A( ) de Caradene, who sent newspapers containing the relation of the incident which his daughter, Pauline de Caradene Hayward, wrote from memory. Bishop Ignatius (Camillus) Persico allowed them to have it published without divulging his name during his lifetime. Since he had been a missionary in India such publication might have a bad effect. Parmentier made the acquaintance of the Caradene family in 1867. Caradene told her that the Bishop preached on certain Sundays to a congregation composed entirely of Protestants. After the war in which Caradene lost his two sons and Catholics had not much to contribute to Church purposes, they wrote Parmentier about a project to have a fair at Aiken, S(outh) C(arolina). When Persico came to Aiken he always remained at the home of the de Caradenes. In a letter of October 6, 1869, Parmentier expressed to Mrs. Caradene the pleasure she felt after reading "The Indian Maiden".

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

Smith, William O.: Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands
 to (Ira B.) Joseph Dutton: Molokai, (Hawaiian Islands)

While Dutton is keeping close quarters and not taking actual part in politics, it does not follow that in that regard he is not doing good work. They have been pained to hear of the severe illness of the bishop.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): New York, (New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(William W.) Denslow will see the curios when he returns from Bermuda. Stoddard sent the ms. of the four Tuckernuck papers. The Lathrop Publishing Company does not care to give credit to the periodicals that contained the articles in "Exits and Entrances".

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

It is too bad that Edwards cannot get rid of his cold. It was good that Charlie returned to the college. Their waiters are in quaratine with the small pox.

Kiefer, Herbert: Terre Haute, Indiana
(Rose Polytechnic Institute)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is a shame that they do not correspond any more. He is rather busy with society and school affairs. Last Friday he was in jail with twenty of his classmates for trying to break up the freshman banquet. They all had a hard time getting out.

Lelly has the Review of Orestes A. Brownson in the original form for the years 1856, 1857, 1858, and 1859 in good condition. He is getting old and will sell them either directly to Brownson or will give him a commission for selling them.

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

Stoddard sends "My Hospitals". He is impatient to get at Robert Buchanan. He is so afraid of the novel that he is glad it will appear out yonder.

Seton, Mgr. Robert: Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

Rome is the worst place in the world in which to get news. He is very sorry he ever returned to Rome. All his old friends are gone except four and they are without honors and influence. Seton has no position and no influence. However he is appreciated by the small English and American colony there. He has lost all respect for Cardinal (Francesco) Satolli who is insincere. The only thing that detains Seton is his heavy investment in furniture. The American College is no longer a stopping place for American hierarchy. The rector never asked Seton to put foot in the college even though he was the firststudent.

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

Doyle has sent the October number of the "Journal of Theological Studies" and discusses the various articles it contains. Father Mageveney was well pleased with it. He discusses the Tablet's article on "The Church in France" and asks Brownson's opinion of a book by N. L. Schutz and of articles in the Dublin Review, July, 1868, by Dr. Ward. The Ecclesiastical Review agrees with Brownson's criticism of Cardinal Vaughan's address. The bull, Immortale Dei, Doyle thinks, contradicts the De Luca. He quotes Tanquerey on the possibility of salvation outside of the Church. He asks Brownson why he did not refer the fact that the Catholics in the army were proportionately more than Catholics bear to the whole population. He presumes that the storms may have been the cause of the irregular arrival of the Tablet.

Glynn, Ralph: (Madison, Wisconsin)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

Prof. Heistand admitted him to the University on probation but he wants a written statement of the classes he took at Notre Dame (University). He won the shot put meet in Chicago. He thought once of coming back to Notre Dame. He did not think that shooting off a few fire crackers was a crime but the President did.

Lamotte, H(enri): Paris, (France)
