(Myers), Geo(rge W.): Dubuque, Iowa
 to Ja(me)s F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Edwards cannot imagine how shocked he is about Edwards' paralytic stroke. His great hope and prayers are that he will soon recover entirely from the effects. Ad is improving, he brought her home from Chicago. Family there is well. Dee (Myers) is getting along splendidly — on the water wagon. Louie Nash is superintendent of the Street Railway Co. in Omaha, and director in two banks. Edwards should have one of the boys write for him.

Brownson, H(enry) F.: Detroit, Mich(igan)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Hudson for the letter enclosed. He is distressed to hear about Prof(essor) (James F.) Edwards; he has been thinking of him a good deal of late. He sent a card at Christmas saying he would call next Sunday, but failed to come. He feels the loss of Father (Stanislaus) Fitte, C.S.C. even though he has no hope of another journey to Notre Dame. He only lacks a month of his father's age. Father Ernest Van Dyke left for England a month ago, and wrote from Germany; he will be back in May. He is worried about his wife's health and has two children who are chronic invalids. As usual the Modernists nearly all thinks the cap fits some other fellows.

Clarke, Alice C.: Petworth, (England)

Bellwald, S.M., Father Edw(ard): Pagopago, Tutuila
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Bellwald noticed in the September Ave Maria that no corner of the world was forgotten. The volcano has been erupting since August, 1905. The central mission station at Malo lay to the north of the volcano—the direction the lava was pouring out. Father Delahaze met his death in 1883 during a hurricane which struck the Mission. Father Larohe died of overexertion. Father Govet volunteered to take Larohe's place at the age of 70. Today the whole mission district of Lealatele is destroyed. Father Mennel is stationed in the village of Labotu. The volcano is still active today.

C(herubim, C.S.C.) Sister M.: Salt Lake City, Utah
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Hudson, C.S.C., Daniel E.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Detroit, Michigan)

It was a surprise to get Edwards' letter written from Detroit; he thought Edwards to be in Indianapolis. Little Averardo and the rest will pray for Edwards' recovery. Father (Andrew) Morrissey, C.S.C. left for the South yesterday; Father (John B.) Delauney, (C.S.C.) has taken up residence in the Presbytery. Mr. Oliver was thought to be at death's door but is better. Father (Louis) L'Etourneau (C.S.C.) is very feeble.

 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She was in St. Louis and had delightful weather. She regretted to hear of Edwards' illness and hopes he will not feel serious effects from the stroke. Lizzie has the grippe. John is well and gaining weight. She saw Mr. Kinsella's family while she was in St. Louis. They have a beautiful home opposite where the new cathedral is being built.

Cary, G(?) ( )L.: Cambridge, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Copelin, Minnie I.: (Chicago, Illinois)
 to (James F. Edwards: Detroit, Michigan)

She was thinking of telephoning when Edwards' letter from Detroit came. He will probably have to take things slow for awhile. Edwards should let her know of his progress. Her family joins in every good wish for Edwards.

Fieg, Joseph F.: Cleveland, (Ohio)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The Ave Maria has visited their home for the past ten years, and Fieg says a few words of appreciation. In 1897, when Fieg was 21, their family consisted of his mother and sister, a widow, and her two boys. The magazine has been and is a power for good among them.

Murray, John A.: New York, (New York)
 to Brother Sulpicius (Louis Dubois), C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Murray encloses a copy of the letter written to the Hill Co. turning down the financial advertisement offered. When "Men and Women" failed, Murray thought that disgraceful business methods in the Catholic field were at an end. But now the Extension Magazine springs up with the manager who used to be with "Men and Women" and who is resorting to all the coercive schemes that sheet used to use. Murray does not believe that the editor or publisher understands the coercive character of the methods of their advertising man. Murray presumes Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.) read the attack the Extension Magazine made on the Barclay Street people.

(Murray, John A.): (New York, New York)
 to 
W.S. Hill CompanyPittsburg, P(ennsylvani)a

The office of the Ave Maria has sent to Murray the Hill Co.' s order for the advertising of Municipal and Corporations Securities Company. Murray regrets to have to return the same to them. Financial advertisements are excluded by the Ave Maria except where they personally know all about the investment.

Wells, Lizzie P.: St. Joseph, Michigan
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She learned that Edwards has been quite ill. She has been in bed with the grippe for two weeks. She hopes he will be soon well again. She is enclosing a little clipping that might interest Edwards. Even the business of getting her farm started and going is boring. (Note: The clipping is attached.)

Starbuck, Charles C.: Andover, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Starbuck is glad "Who's Who" did not forget Hudson. Schwab puzzles Starbuck. The object of Catholic worship is not Mary, but her Divine Son. Can the Pope forbid Catholics to believe that God blesses certain relics with special efficacy? What has the Pope to do with American ideals on disbelief? Starbuck is sick and tired of this overbearing way of always telling the Pope that he must consult American likings in the matter of use and abstract belief. He wonders if Schwab can be the son of his old friend Gustav Schwab of New York. Bodley says that Cardinal Richard of France was hardly equal to the Primacy.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Monterey, California)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard is a nervous wreck and cannot write these days. Stoddard liked the poem by Father Ryder. Stoddard is lonely.

(Carroll), Alice: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

They thanked God to see a line written by Edwards again. They were so sad and both in tears over his condition. Never will she say anything again to tease him. Father (John W.) C(avanaugh, C.S.C.) was there at an Alumni banquet; no one let Frank (Carroll) know. That settles him with advancing any ideas of the Alumni in Boston; it is quite evident they do not want any of him there.

Spearman, Frank H(amilton): Evanston, Ill(inois)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They are settled for the winter in Evanston. Spearman has been looking forward to going down to see Hudson since their return to Chicago in November. Clark, their oldest, is in the general offices of the Santa Fe in Chicago. Lonergan they left at Georgetown and Frank, 12, and Arthur, 8, are at home. Frank received his Communion and confirmation in Rome from the Cardinal Vicar, Genuari, and the Patriarch of Constantinople. Spearman's own work has been almost nil during the last year. Georgina Pell Curtis asked him to write for "Road to Rome". Spearman encloses (no enclosure) in a letter from a Nantucket friend who cannot believe in the Real Presence.

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Monterey, Calif(ornia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard will be glad if a list appears as Hudson suggests. He has material for three other volumes ready for the press, but does not know when they may appear. Stoddard seems to have lost interest in life. He does not know just when the Corpus Christi sketch appeared—perhaps while he was at the Cleary's in Covington—1886-1887? After Father Damien's death did Stoddard not write something quoting from a few letters he had received?

Curtis, Georgina Pell: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Curtis has had her hands full with her sister who has not been very well and the two boys. Curtis has written to Miss Salter and to all the other names Hudson has given her. The enclosed letter was sent to her by Father (Cyprian) McGarvey, C.P. (no enclosure). Father Edmund does not seem a proper person for her "American Roads" as he is an Englishman. Miss Cary has written her assent. Mrs. Skinner said Curtis ought to have stories of the old converts like Charlotte Dana. Curtis has succeeded in getting what she wanted out of Stoddard's book "A Troubled Heart". Curtis thanks Hudson for writing to (Ira B.) Dutton. Father Clarke has not yet been heard from. Curtis has secured Henry C. Granger and Dr. Hasket Derby, and she has written to Father (F.A.) Spencer, O.P., General Frisbie and Father Doran. Macmillan has written her two very flattering letters. So far she has only secured thirty contributors for her book. When the "Roads" is sent to the publisher, Curtis will begin the Catholic Who's Who. Curtis does not favor O'Neill's suggestion as there are too many mistakes in his own book. J. Harvard Gore wrote her that he would be happy to write her the story of his conversion when it was an accomplished fact. Curtis hears that Father McGarvey of St. Elizabeth's, Philadelphia and the founder of the "Companions of the Holy Savior" will carry all the younger clergy with him. The Rev. George Hewlett of Kewanee, Illinois has gone over to them. She also hears that Archdeacon Wilbur of Fond-du-Lac is also coming over.

Guiney, L(ouise) I(mogen): Oxford, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Guiney has just written an article called "Catholicism in England: a non-scientific survey". She would love to see it in the Ave Maria. It is rather positive and outspoken on the point that American Catholics have much more to learn from the English, on the whole, than they from us.

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

Since September the news about the coadjutorship of San Francisco has set everybody agog. McQuaid could not believe that the opposition to Father Edward Joseph Hanna could come from one of the professors at St. Bernard's. It was demonstrated that Father (Andrew E.) Breen was the guilty one. After all the scandal, the Holy Office in Rome finds nothing in the "Absolution" article to strike out and the Congregation of Studies only asks that a supplementary article in the New York Review be added. In all likelihood Hanna will be consecrated soon after Easter. Breen has left the seminary and will leave the diocese next September. They will get along with Father (J.F.) Goggin and Father (William E.) Cowan for a couple of years. Father (Edward J.) Byrne is leaving for Europe in May. Their registration this year is over 165. When the new building is ready by September 15 they will have room for 260 students. St. Bernard's has three Philippine students, one paid for by Bishop (Patrick) Ludden of Syracuse. McQuaid expects three more in September. St. Bernard's also offers ten free places to the Southern dioceses. Hudson should do something to get the ball rolling for the commission in charge of the revision of the Vulgate under the direction of Father (Francis Aidan) Gasquet, (C.S.B.).

S(toddard), C(harles) W(arren): Monterey, Calif(ornia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Stoddard did not wish to see the body of his dear father, and wished to remember him as he last saw him in life at Christmas. Some Catholic neighbor baptized him conditionally as he lay dying. Stoddard thinks his brother will become a Catholic. Stoddard encloses a newspaper clipping about the appearance of Hudson's name in the Catholic Who's Who.

Franklin, N(athan) E.: Deadwood, So(uth) Dakota
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He is very sorry to know that Edwards has been suffering, he just heard; he trusts that before this letter reaches him, Edwards will be entirely recovered. He was grieved to read of the serious accident that happened to two Notre Dame priests. Mrs. Franklin and Mildred also send wishes for a speedy recovery.

Murphy, James: Paris, (France)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Murphy has been thinking of contributing to the Ave Maria with Hudson's permission. Owing to domestic bereavements he has left Ireland and come to Paris to reside permanently. (This letter is written on a circular advertising Murphy's novels.)

O'Brien, Father Frank A.: Kalamazoo, Michigan
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He regrets to hear of Edwards' affliction; God must love Edwards otherwise he would not have had this additional warning. Father (Peter A.) Baart left a written instruction to his administrator that all his papers and library except such books wanted by the administrator, go to Notre Dame (University). Father (Joseph) Joos is the administrator. The papers are to be sealed until the death of the principals.

Joos, Father J(oseph): Monroe, Michigan
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was sorry to hear that Edwards has been under the weather. The books are all safe and will be sent to Edwards after he feels satisfied that the will will not be contested. He will send what papers are of historical value. He will carry out his instructions from Father (Peter A.) Baart and will take no dictation from anybody.

Medlycott, Bishop A(dolph) E.: Nice, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Medlycott is returning to India in a private capacity to pass his last years where he started on mission work. The Cardinal Prefect of Propaganda insisted that he could find no opening for him. In order not to trouble the Holy Father he thought it best to retire into privacy. Medlycott is now going to Calcutta and probably will remain there.

Hinkson, Katharine Tynan: Chipperfield, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hinkson never sends anyone to Hudson who cannot write, and knows that Hudson is as good to them as he can possible be. The children are very well. The oldest is 10. They are her grandchildren. Could Hudson spare some stamps for the children?
