O'Kennedy, Father R(ichard): Fedamore, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Kennedy is greatly taken by the "Irish Saints in the Breviary". If Hudson brings them out in book form, he will undertake the expense and the proceeds could go to the good ladies of St. Mary's for the Indian Missions. O'Kennedy has learned to his sorrow that A(rch)b(isho)p (Francis) Bourne of Westminster has refused to help any Irish priests and has refused to accept any Irish boy for his college.
