McQuaid, Bishop B(ernard) J(oseph): Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Archbishop (Patrick William) Riordan's outspoken letter, boldly announcing his plan of caring for Catholic students at non-Catholic colleges will stay the carping of many who had no fear of McQuaid. McQuaid hopes to make a beginning at Cornell next year if he can make sale of a large property by that time. He is confident that Rome will not forbid a bishop to do what she permits the Jesuits to do at the University of Padua. Father (Henry) Semple, S.J. is giving the retreat. His throat has given out and McQuaid is obliged to give the conferences. Hudson's good friend Archbishop (John Joseph) Williams is in heaven. McQuaid refused to preach the funeral sermon. He had much to say to his priests at the retreat. McQuaid incloses (no enclosure) a personal letter from (Katherine E.) Conway giving the particulars of Williams' last days. Father (James) French's visit was pleasant to them.

O'Connor is forwarding for Hudson's perusal "Glastonbury," "St. Albans," and "St. Augustines, Canterbury." Hudson must let them know if he can use them and must run them serially before April, as it is of the utmost importance that all articles should appear before the publication in book form.
