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

Edwards has been discreet about Rob(ert) Sweeny's marriage. All capitulants are here Father (Frederick) Linneborn (C.S.C.) and Father (Daniel J. Spillare (C.S.C.) being the last to materialize. The General Chapter opens tomorrow. Father (Andrew) Morrissey, (C.S.C.) overheated himself going to St. Mary's and returning; Father General (Gilbert Francois) was excited and discouraged over it. But by Monday Morrissey will be well again.

Howard, T(imothy) E.: South Bend, Ind(iana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He received the enclosed letter from Jacob P. Dunn. He doesn't suppose there is any priest at Notre Dame who understands the Potawatomi language or knows the name of the Indian Mission at Twin Lakes. When he was writing the History of Notre Dame for the Golden Jubilee he had a book containing letters of Father Petit and other writings relating to the removal of the Indiana to the west. Perhaps that book would help. Dunn has more knowledge of this history than any man alive.

1906 Aug. 9
Dunn, J(acob) P.: Indianapolis, (Indiana)
 to (Timothy E.) Howard: (South Bend, Indiana)

He is told that there is a retreat at Notre Dame with priests from all parts participating. It is possible that there is among them one who knows the Potawatomi language. There was a Catholic mission to the Potawatomi in Indiana which was served by Fathers Petit and Badin, located on Twin Lakes. John Gilmary Shea says the name of it is Chichipy Outippe; he used correspondence preserved at Notre Dame. He would like to make sure of the point.

Bandy, C.W.: Danville, Ill(inois)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The receipt of a catalogue from Notre Dame has put him in a reminiscent mood. He did not appreciate the place when he was there as he does now. He ran across Jim Herbert in Chicago and Cluit Ahrens in Dwight, Illinois. He is going to return for a visit some day.

Edwards' cordial letter received. He is glad Edwards feels the same joy all the community feel at the result of the elections. The victory was much more complete than they dared expect.

Houghton, Mifflin & Co. Chicago, (Illinois)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Marucchi, J. Giuseppe: Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It seems to him that Edwards' long delay is not correct. It would be right to send to him the 200 francs which Edwards guaranteed in his letter which amount is nothing but the expense for buying the hat for His Eminence.
