Fairhurst, Ja(me)s: (London, England)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (London, England)

He is sorry he was out when Edwards called at the office. He asks if Edwards will come on Thursday evening, calling at the office for him to go out to the house. They will have tea or coffee and a chat which he feels is more what they both want.

Fairhurst, Ja(me)s: (London, England)
 to (James F.) Edwards:

By an unfortunate mischance he posted Edwards a letter last night without a stamp; he asks forgiveness. The purport of the letter was to ask Edwards to tea. He regrets very much if the previous letter has miscarried or caused Edwards any trouble.

Jones Brothers Publishing Co. Cincinnati, (Ohio)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Professor Edward S. Ellis has just completed a new history of the United States entitled "The History of our Country." They are sending Hudson the work for his endorsement; if he approves of it, they will use Hudson's endorsement in their advertising matter. They would be glad to let Hudson have a set of the work in the De Luxe binding in exchange for a letter of endorsement. Signed by H. F. McGee.

Shringer, A.G.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F. Edwards: London, England)

He received two postals cards and a letter from Edwards. He received over 80 in all of his exams. The Varsity turned out bad and has been beaten most of the time. He hopes Edwards is enjoying himself and will bring back many interesting books.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): S(an) F(rancisco), Cal(ifornia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard's last weeks in Cambridge were distracting and the overland trip exhausting. Friends and reporters nearly killed him with kindness. He is going to a Sanitorium near San Jose. The San Francisco "Call" offers him $50 a week for a Sunday column and the "Sunset" $100 an article for 6 months. Other offers have come. The "National" of Boston wants him to go on indefinitely, but first he must build his health.

Schetty, John Austin: Paterson, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's paragraph on Vincent Harper's story calls to mind another similar incident of a few months ago in which Schetty protested to the editor of "The Saturday Evening Post". It is quite impossible to convince the editorial mind that Harper had done anything offensive as in the case of the Post's story. The fact that he had drawn an utterly impossible priest was simply lost upon him. Schetty does not think Harper means to offend.

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

He received Edwards' letters from New York and London. He leaves the apartment at the end of June; he will return to Rome at the end of October. It is doubtful whether he can go to Notre Dame at all; his time will be short in America.

Goveas, Father Antony: Mandalay, (Burma)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Goveas received Hudson's April 5th dispatch containing intentions for Masses as well as a check for 25 pounds. There is not much change in the disease. Goveas' leprosy is confined exteriorly to the right foot below the shin.

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

Edwards' note reached him. He concludes that Edwards' health is all right. Father (Peter Paul) Cooney want to his reward last week. Father (Louis) Letorneau, (C.S.C.) underwent another facial operation and is getting along well, as is Brother Alexander, (C.S.C.) who was operated on. Last week he received a papal brief from the Bishop (Herman J. Alerding) of Fort Wayne, giving great praise to the Sisters of the Holy Cross and granting them the apostolical benediction and two plenary indulgences. Father (Andrew) Morrissey, (C.S.C.) went last Sunday to the ceremony of the pallium in St. Louis. When he returned Archbishop (Alexander) Christie was at Notre Dame. Morrissey goes to Boston to confer the Laetare Medal and will attend the consecration of the Coadjutor of Rochester, Very Rev. Thomas F. Hickey, on his way back. Fitte is in charge of St. Bavo's congregation in Mishawaka. The civil society is going to sell the College of St. Croix to the municipality of Neuilly, Father (Augustus) Goupille told him; the last hope is gone for the Congregation (of Holy Cross) ever to recover it. There was a terrible cyclone in Oklahoma— 130 killed and 300 wounded; and a railroad accident killed 20 and wounded 100; the Chicago strike is about played out.

Noble, Harrison H.: Cleveland, Ohio
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He has often thought of Edwards in connection with his student life at Notre Dame. He praises the school and quotes a clipping from a newspaper giving the activities of his life. His last visit was just prior to Father Thomas E. Walsh's death. He was talking to Father Walsh who died shortly after of Bright's disease. It had been rumored that Walsh would be the succeeding bishop of Fort Wayne. Noble called on Msgr. G(eorge) F. Houck, an old friend who recently wrote a book, "The Catholic Church in the Diocese of Cleveland."

(Carroll), Fran(cis E.): Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: London, (England)

He was pleased to hear of Edwards' fine trip across the sea. Edwards should rest and travel all he can. Edwards escaped trouble in sailing on the Caronia. The ladies had a public exposition of all the vestmensts they made at the Convent. Miss Westervelt is entirely recovered.

Hudson, C.S.C. Father Daniel E.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (James F. Edwards:

Edwards' two letters received. Bishop (Edward) O'Dea and one of his priests are at Notre Dame today on their trip to Rome. Father (Andrew) Morrissey, (C.S.C.) is in Rochester; Father (John A.) Zahm (C.S.C. is still absent. He was prevented from attending the functions at Rochester because of a book he is getting out. Father (Peter Paul) Cooney, (C.S.C.) is no more. At his funeral Mass a very nice sermon was preached by Father (James) French, (C.S.C.) Mr. Fish's health demanded a longer visit and they have not returned. He fears Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding will never leave the hospital in Peoria alone. It is too bad Edwards missed Dom Gasquet, but he is glad Edwards saw Dom Birt. Archbishop (Alexander) Christie was there for a few days. A change will probably be made at Columbia (University) next year; too much of an athletic spirit, he thinks. They say that Father (John) Thilman intends to leave the community.

McQuaid, Bishop B(ernard) J(oseph): Hemlock Lake, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

When Hudson dies he will go to heaven, but he will never be canonized after McQuaid tells the judges how the nuns caused him to succumb. If it had not been for those nuns, Hudson would have been at the Consecration. Father (Andrew) Morrissey will tell Hudson what he missed. After two weeks of anxious thought McQuaid was weary in mind and came to Hemlock Lake to recuperate.

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

If Edwards can inform him of the time of his arrival he will have his man meet Edwards and bring him to his spare room. It is a pity Edwards couldn't have been there for the Papal Mass in St. Peter's and the Eucharistic procession on June 5. He doesn't know anyone who knew him but Abbot Gasquet and he has always felt so small beside him. The Order founded by St. Benedict will outlive them all.
