Echeverria, Paulino: Nantucket, Massachusetts
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He thanks Hudson for his sympathy over the war of this country and Spain. It was an anti-Catholic war invented mainly by the Baptist and Methodist press. It should and could have been avoided by (William) McKinley. His pamphlet "The Mote and the Beam" has received more notice than he expected. The "Historical Association of Nantucket" asked for a copy to place in the archives. He is not in good health. (On his enclosed personal card he states that) he was born in Spain in 1839 and has been in New York since 1885.

Hughes, Ed(ward) J.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to James (F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is going on to Notre Dame with his sister Carrie and wonders if they could be taken care of for a couple of days. In the days of Father (Edward) Sorin, (C.S.C.) Notre Dame never had anyone do so much for it as their Father and Mother.

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

Benson, Father R(obert) Hugh: Cambridge, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Benson feels the best plan would be to accept Hudson's invitation to contribute half a dozen or so articles and delay publication of those others in book form until they can be combined. If Hudson feels strongly against this, Benson would reconsider it and look about for a publisher. The pamphlet Hudson mentions has not arrived. A complete list of Benson's books is on page four of this letter.

Kittell, Father Ferdinand: Loretto, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will recall that during his last visit to Notre Dame, he broached to Hudson and Father (John A.) Zahm a plan to bring the Holy Cross Congregation to Loretto to replace the Franciscan Brothers, who were then as a community, in a moribund condition. The Brothers have effected a merger with the Fathers of the Third Order of St. Francis. Brother Raphael, of Spaulding, Nebraska, who won the fight for a merger against McDonnell of Brooklyn, will be here tomorrow to initiate their brothers into the new discipline. This is to be the Mother House and Novitiate of the new Order in the United States. With the Brothers there has been for the past two or three months a most remarkable character. His name is John Douglas Gordon, age 25, a graduate of Princeton and a convert. He is the eldest son of Judge Jay Gordon of Philadelphia. He and another fellow convert, Howard Shelley opened a night school for boys in the slums. The conversion of Dr. McGarvey and his co-workers in Philadelphia is due to these men. On one occasion Gordon read the rich act to Thomas Wanamaker whose furniture was decorated with copes, chasubles and other objects of art used as doilies. Gordon received permission to be invested with the habit of St. Francis and will study for the priesthood. Charles Schwab scandalized Gordon by his conduct at Mass. He also distracted Gertrude, wife of David Barry. Joe has gone to the devil. John Schwab is the most unpopular man in town. Mrs. Schwab looks old and haggard.

O'Loughlin, D.: New York, (New York)
 to (James F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Edwards' letter is before him. He just returned from a trip spent in a vain effort to collect money. He got some promises. He is short one number of the first Brownson he bought from M. McLaughlin. He paid out thousands in over 2 years on Catholic magazines, and has realized so far only $114. He will make it a point to give Edwards first call on money coming in.

Hanley, Nellie P.: St. Joseph, Mich(igan)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

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

Stoddard has been too miserable to write or read or eat or sleep. Yesterday he returned from the Tassajara Hot Springs. He is a little worse off than when he went. The journey left him an object of pity. He came back in a rickety coach that nearly jolted him to death.

(Carroll), Francis (E.): Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Toledo, Ohio)

They will be very happy to see Edwards and he had better get rested there before he goes to the beach. An agent will check Edwards' baggage to its destination before he leaves the train. The city is packed with strangers. It looks like old times having Edwards with them again.

Dutton, (Ira B.) Joseph: Molokai, Hawaii
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dutton is starting some of the conversion sketch for (Georgina Pell) Curtis. There will be about 80 pages. Hudson and Curtis can take out what may be good for the R to R and the rest (Adele) Ware can type for old friends. The story will start in childhood. Changes of officials have made much work. Dutton has cut his 4 hour sleep to 1 - 2 or 3 taking much of it in the chair. Dutton has been having "doings" with the navy and has gotten the entire fleet of about 50 vessels to come close to Molokai on the morning of July 16.
