(Rhodius), George: New York, (New York)
 to J(ames) F. (Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He really had a pleasant letter from his mother telling him to stay and have a good time as long as he desired. That is more like the real thing. Edwards has no idea what it makes with him."

Ball, Father J.: Ars-sur-Formans, France
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ball thanks Hudson for the card and the article. He and his bishop were called to Rome to be present at the solemn publication of the decree approving the miracles proposed for the beatification of the Cure of Ars. Beatification will take place at the beginning of November of this year.

Sanford, L(ouise) B.: (St. Louis, Missouri)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She took cold and has been confined to the house. She will be delighted to have Edwards and Father (Andrew) Morrissey visit her at any time. The severe winter has help up things at the Fair grounds. Ben writes from the farm that owing to the continued rains they have not been able to sell their new trees.

O'Byrne, J. J.: N(ew) Y(ork), (New York)
 to H(enry). F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

O'Byrne encloses a check for $33.26 in payment of his bill. He has deducted five cents overpaid for express charges on the set sent to Father McAuliffe. He should have sent this sooner, but made a mistake about the time it fell due. He made a trip to Connecticut last week and is serving on the jury in Brooklyn this week. He asks Brownson to excuse the delay and to receipt the bill and oblige.

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

She is glad Edwards did so well collecting books around the country. Edwards always speaks of George as though he would turn over a new leaf. She finds no change in him. It is the same old thing; he insults her so often. It almost breaks her heart. George writes that he is liable to come home any time.

Abell, Mrs. P(hilomena) M.: Winchester, V(irgini)a
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Walter has a cold and the doctors think that it would be a risk to send him back to school until entirely well. The climate in the west is wretched in April. She is having Walter under a tutor for three hours a day.

Ganss, Father H(enry) G.: Manhattanville, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ganss thanks Hudson for the article on Indian Rations. It must be said to the credit of President (Theodore) Roosevelt that the ruling of (Frank H.) Hitchcock was always displeasing to him. The new legislation was secured by the quiet, conciliatory agitation which they could have pursued with advantageous results during the incumbancy of Monsignor (Joseph A.) Stephan as director of the Indian Bureau. The attitude of the government aside from Hitchcock is favorable to their work. Ganss' health obliges him to suspend the Indian campaign temporarily. He is going to Germany to make an exhaustive study of Luther in his home and haunts. He attends the meeting of the Archbishops in Washington next week.

Connor, James: Rock Island, Ill(inois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Enclosed he sends a check for $8. He does not know what the custom-house charges are for. The pictures are supposed to have been stolen or smuggled from Italy almost three hundred years ago. News from Oscar is favorable.

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

Perhaps this summer Stoddard may be able to write a sketch of Robert Buchanan. He doesn't see why the book on pilgrimages may not be called "With Staff and Script." If he goes back to California Stoddard would love to make a book of the missions.

Abell, Mrs. (Philomena M.): (Baltimore, Maryland)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

The doctors advise her not to send Walter back to Notre Dame if the snow is not melted, as the dampness might renew his cough. She asks how the weather is in Indiana. Walter is out of doors all the time and takes lessons in his weak points two hours a day.

Belanger, Father D( ) D.: Notre Dame de la Paix, Quebec, Canada
 to (Lillian Westervelt:

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

Hughes thanks Hudson for the two mss. He will be content if Hudson publishes the Essentials series monthly. By laying down the general principle he has tried to bring out the fact that a loyal Catholic listens to every utterance of the Church.

Donovan, Joseph P.: Perryville, M(issouri)
 to Henry F. Brownson: Detroit, Mich(igan)

Donovan asks Brownson to send three copies of "Republic" for which he encloses a check. He asks whether publicity relative to Webster saying that he (Webster) knew the Catholic Church to be the true Church was ever given until (Orestes A.) Brownson incorporated it into the Early Life. It may be news to Brownson to learn of Father Rossi's death last week in Lombardy at the age of 80. Some years ago Father Rossi showed one of the priests a cherished remembrance — a letter he had received from Dr. Brownson after his first book appeared.

(Mosher, Warren E.): New York, New York)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The subscription is $2. Archbishop John M. Farley of New York recommends his magazine highly. It supplemented the work of the schools amongst the young people.

Gest, Alex(ander) P.: Lambertville, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Gest thanks Hudson for replying to his note inquiring about the story in the Ave Maria. He thinks that the appearance of such a story in the Ave Maria ought to be a guarantee of its truth. Publication of untrue ghost stories is often vicious; of true ones, often beautiful.

Sanford, Benj(amin) C.: Doniphan, M(issouri)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is a shame that he did not write, but Edwards knows how it is when a man is in love. He hears that Edwards is going to visit his mother during the World's Fair. He has a fruit farm and enjoys it a great deal.

(Studebaker, Jr. J.M.: Rock Island, Ill(inois)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

As he is a crank about fishing he asks Edwards to get him a permit to fish in the lakes at Notre Dame during the summer.

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

She guesses Edwards has read of the two big fires. Everyone was in hopes that old man Schnull would erect a fine new building, but he is just going to fix it up. St. Vincent's fire did not amount to much, but the fright was something awful. They thought the shock would kill Sister Monica who is 80 years old and had been sick. George bought her a beautiful new dress. Since he is at home, he is very sick.

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

"With Staff and Scrip" seems a good title. Stoddard has made his faithful friend, W. McM. Woodworth(?), his agent with the power of attorney. McNally in Chicago told Woodworth the other day that W(illiam) W. Denslow, who illustrated "A Cruise" and was to go half on the profits, has been drawing the same every six months without letting Stoddard know. Stoddard has been haunting Mount Auburn of late.

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

Today on the Feast of St. George, he visited the Church of St. George and prayed for the conversion of poor England. His brother William (Seton) is almost frantic at the idea of having his letters sent to Edwards. He has some where noted in his diaries of a most shocking thing he saw in Baltimore years ago about Bishop (John S.) Foley of Detroit. (Note: a picture of St. George is enclosed.).

(Rhodius), George: (Indianapolis, Indiana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Since his return home, he has been greatly worried in business matters. He has a chance now to make himself solid with the Western Union Co. for life. Others are trying to secure this best of security.

Abell, Mrs. P(hilomena) M.: (Baltimore, Maryland)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She had Walter all ready to return to Notre Dame when word came from Mr. Bonaparte their lawyer to keep Walter there until the settlement of the estate comes up in court. Walter is now in perfect health and is such a comfort to her. She thanks Edwards for his prompt answer.

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

She has scarcely left Frederick for a moment. He is getting along very nicely. After he grows a little stronger, they will have to have an operation as this is the second attack. It is good of Edwards to telephone each day.
