O'Sullivan, Father T(imothy) D.: South Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to James F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Flynn, Mary:
 to (O'Sullivan):

She will call on O'Neil if he is in the city and would like a letter from Edwards.

Mulot, L(ouise): Angers, France
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stockley, W(illiam) F.G.: Halifax, (Nova Scotia)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Would Hudson care for a paper on the Armagh Cathedral consecration? He asks the raison d'etre of the article on the university question. The latest fellow in Trinity College Dublin is a Catholic. The old policy seems to be that of the bishops.

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

He feels very lonely and often wishes he had Edwards to go around with. Edwards may be able to secure some mementos of his brother Henry's father-in-law General John Gray Foster from the general's widow in Washington. Years ago Seton foolishly gave to the sisters at Emmitsburg the writing-desk of Mother (Elizabeth) Seton. He wishes he knew Edwards sooner. The Pope is displaced at (Cardinal Francis) Satolli going to America.

Sweeny, Robert J.: Cambridge, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He cannot express his gratitude at Edwards thoughtful remembrance of his sister's wedding. The wedding was as pretty as could be. Some very pretty speeches were made at the breakfast. He had to come back to Boston that night for his first exam.

Chute, Fred B.: Minneapolis (Minnesota)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

At last he shipped Edwards the five boxes of magazines which he promised him. Edwards may wonder why it took so long. The only reason is that he is pretty slow. He would be pleased to have Edwards visit him this summer.

Stockley, W(illiam) F.G.:
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Did Hudson see that Father Campbell said Lord Acton was, in the technical sense, an old Catholic? Stockley wrote a few notes on the college question from Hudson's side which he sends. Are the Catholics who will that all be educated together the best Catholics? Would not the U.S. with all poor Catholics be like Ireland rather than England? What an ideal is a Christian renaissance university. As Father (George) Tyrrell (S.J.) says of Trinity College, "Why don't we go into it and swamp the old hell?" If bishops are for a Catholic University in any country what then? Stockley's experience of the two sides has shown him the one with faults of conservatives, the other with faults of liberals. Certainly in the new Catholic Universities there is superficiality.

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

Hughes asks for a check during July for his contributions to the Ave Maria. He thanks Hudson for sending the criticism. The paper being somewhat liberal and anti-temporal power, he took it as a compliment. His critic was not correct in saying that he confused temporal sovereignty with supremacy. The pope would give up his claim to territory if some other satisfactory way of assuring him complete independence and sovereignty could be found. The hostility of the government party is only too evident. Hughes supposes Hudson saw the article of his in the "Dolphin" on Spencer Jones' book, "Rome and Reunion." He is a sympathizer, but they puzzle him although he is a convert from Anglicanism. When all is said and done corporate reunion is a chimera.

O'Neill, James: New London, Conn(ecticut)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Harson, M.J.: Providence (Rhode Island)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He never spent four days more pleasantly and was never more royally treated than during his recent visit to Notre Dame. He was deeply impressed with all he saw. His mission to St. Louis was not successful. Archbishop (John J.) Glennon was cold and indifferent to the proposal of a Catholic Congress and Archbishop (John) Ireland was opposed to it. Cardinal (James ) Gibbons is in favor of the idea but will not sanction it as so many of the bishops are opposed to it.

Last month they had 90 deaf and dumb pupils there and all the methods of teaching were illustrated in a practical way.

F(itte), C.S.C., Father S(tanislaus) F.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to James F. Edwards:

He is glad to hear that Edwards gradually succeeds in getting rid of drowsiness and wishes him speedy recovery before he sails for colder latitudes. Father E. though not very logical is pious and zealous. The retreat will be a success.

Morrison, Jr., Joseph B.: Fort Madison, Iowa
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: N(otre) D(ame, Indiana)

At last he has found a picture of Father (Peter) DeCailly to send Edwards. The larger picture is the last one he ever had taken and is a fine likeness. The smaller one was probably taken 15 or 20 years before. He hopes Edwards will find a good place for them in his collection.
