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

Goveas thanks Hudson for his check for 35 pounds 10. They are trying the remedy for leprosy of Paris. He cannot really say that sensation has returned, but there are signs that it is returning. The Bishop from Mangalore told him of a Jesuit Father Moore who had discovered a remedy for leprosy. At the asylum a Burman is treating some persons. Hudson's paragraph in the March number of the Ave Maria says that he is an Eurasian priest; he is a native only. There are 5 Eurasians out of about 50 secular clergy; the rest are natives, generally Brahmins. At present the Mangalore Diocese comprises 83,000 grown Catholics and in the southern part, (North Malabar) about 7000 or 8000 Eurasians and other natives.

She thanks Hudson for his most generous gift towards their mission. It is the first help that their work has received from America. Every effort is being made to organize a trade school for the poor boys. The people in America and their great Cardinal Gibbons realize the good work done by technical schools.

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

He is glad Edwards' trip abroad proved successful. The priests of Chicago were at Notre Dame for their retreat. He supposed that Edwards had another pleasant visit in Paris with Father ( ) Jamet and also with Father Labbe in the Vesinct. He had 20 days vacation; and has moved to the Community House. Another shady story in Chicago says that Father (F. J.) Barry, Chancellor and Vicar-general has been peremptorily dismissed by Archbishop (James Edward) Quigley and granted a "long vacation". The Bishop of Fort Wayne leaves for Europe and Rome in September. There is peace at last between Russia and Japan; it is good for Theodore Roosevelt and humanity! There is talk concerning the successor of Archbp. (Placide L.) Chapelle. Bishops (Commellus) Maes and (Theophile) Meerschaert are prominently mentioned. The bishop of Little Rock is to have a coadjutor soon.
