Raupert, J(ohn) G(odfrey): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It may be well to contradict some of the absurd statements appearing in the "Catholic" papers concerning their work. Raupert would be grateful if Hudson would state the facts of the case to the "Pittsburg Observer" and some other leading papers. Raupert encloses a paper for Hudson's guidance (a written statement of the true facts concerning his background and plans). Also enclosed is the newspaper clipping from the Observer of October 8.

Sheedy, Father Morgan M.: Altoona, Pann(sylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sheedy thanks Hudson for his note on his suggestion to parents. Home life is waning in the United States even among Catholics. In Hudson's reference to "The Fly on the Wheel" by Katherine Cecil Thurston, Hudson is not quite certain that Thurston is a Catholic. She is a Catholic, the daughter of Paul Madden, twice mayor of Cork. Mr. Thurston, not a Catholic, is the author of some novels.

Glennon, Archbishop John J(oseph): St. Louis, (Missouri)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Glennon hopes that Hudson and (John Godfrey) Raupert are treating their spiritual friends properly. Hudson's St. Louis friends would like to have him come to St. Louis for the cornerstone laying which will take place October 18.

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

Everything in his room No. 31 and 30 belongs to Father Andrew Morrissey, C. S. C., Provincial. Morrissey allowed him the use of them during (Edwards') life.

Conway, Katherine E.: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Conway has often thought of Hudson since she saw him at Notre Dame, and especially since the event at St. Bernard's Seminary, Rochester. By their dear old friend's orders, she was in the dining room during the whole of his address, and witnessed his collapse and supposed passing which followed. Bishop (Bernard Joseph McQuaid) is physically weak, but very clear-minded. A week ago a Rochester friend said that the Bishop is failing slowly but steadily. Her new work goes on very well. Their proprietor, on his return from Europe, expressed great pleasure at the way she had pulled the paper up. She is enough of Hudson's mind to have forgotten The Pilot as if she had never been on it expect in her few happy years with Boyle O'Reilly. She is much impressed with Hudson's article on (John) Godfrey Raupert and his mission.

Dean, Herbert S.: Reigate, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dean has written to Norman Potter to asks if all the people he refers to are still alive. Dean certainly will take up the Pl(ain) Song matter again. P.S. He has been puzzling his brains as to who of the people he refers to could have died this summer, if any of them did. The American lady he refers to is Mrs. William G. Rathbone. The lady who organized the cripples' work in Birmingham is Madame Hardman. The Rathbones and the Graces are the centers of a very active and charitable set of American Catholics permanently settled in London.

Starbuck, C(harles) C.: Andover, (Massachusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Starbuck thanks Hudson for his kind compliment. He hopes nobody will send up on purpose to catechize him. He is just now out of sorts with Scott for calling Louis XI uncle to Louis XII.

Cunningham, Winifred: (Boston, Massachusetts)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They were all so delighted with Edwards' photo. Harold has placed it on her dresser. Alfred (Cunningham) had a birthday the 14th of September; she tells what they did. Harold (Cunningham) has a birthday the 18th of October. They love Edwards' postcards. She would be glad to hear from Edwards. When Edwards calls on them she will cook lamb chops, rice-cakes and tea — his favorites.

(no signature): (Notre Dame, Indiana)
 to Harold N. Moyer: Chicago, Illinois

He is introducing one of the most revered and deserving members of the band of heroes that built up Notre Dame by their own efforts and sacrifice, Prof. (James F. Edwards, who will tell his own story. If anyone can help Edwards, Dr. Moyer can. Whatever done receives his lasting gratitude.

Dean, Herbert S.: Reigate, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dean has sent off the manuscript of his article about the cripples' work. He heard from Norman Potter that all the people he referred to are still alive. He is at work on something for Hudson on the popularising of sound Church music. Unlike that fine but terrible book "The Nun", Dr. Aveling's and Rene Bazin's new novels may be worth Hudson's notice. So much by Catholic novelists is quite non-Catholic in tone, such as Marion Crawford, M.E. Francis, Max Pemberton, etc.

Low, Francis E.: Wakefield, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was greatly pleased to hear from Edwards and receive the gift. The football team plays Bridgewater; he did not go out for the team for the game is rather strenuous. He speaks further of football. He intends to write to Father Keneney (Kenney) and to send him Edwards' card. He is stationed at Brooklyn at present.

Copelin, Minnie I.: Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is so glad to hear of Edwards' continued improvement and to look forward to the pleasure of seeing Edwards. He should let her know when he is coming. She sends some records from N(otre) D(ame) des Victories. She left a candle burning in thanksgiving for Edwards.

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

Stoddard was in a pitiable plight when he went to the Sanitorium and was put to bed. He is back in his rooms and feels that he is improving and hopes to go to Santa Barbara the last of the month. Mrs. R.L. Stevenson and her son Lloyd are at Santa Barbara and Stoddard is to be their guest for a while. He likes the dress of the new "Lepers".

Wilson Company, The H.W. Minneapolis, (Minnesota)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

They recognize the fact that those libraries subscribing for only a part of the periodicals indexed in the Reader's Guide do not receive so valuable a service from them; therefore they will make concessions. They ask him to check the list; they will establish special rates. (Note: List dated Nov. 2 is attached)

Frenguelli, Pasquali: Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was sorry to hear of Edwards illness and hopes that he has recovered. With regard to the portraits he sent, he will mention only those that Edwards did not like. With regard to the portrait of Pius X, the judgment of Edwards is a little too severe. Even Card. Satolli found his judgment of this picture very bad. As for the portrait of Card. Satolli, he was obliged to paint it by his imagination, since the Cardinal would not pose for it, and he could not even secure a good photograph. He did his best. The portraits of Fr. Fleming and Leo XIII seemed to him to be very successful. With regard to the prices: he tells of an American Painter whom he knows, who made a portrait of Pius X, at the same time that he was making the one for Edwards. He was paid $5,000 (30,000 Lire). The picture was presented to the Pope, who gave it immediately to the American College in Rome. Edwards should ask Card. Satolli if he wants to know the difference between that portrait and the one made by himself.

Ward, William Hayes: New York, (New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ward, editor of the Independent thanks Hudson for his brotherly letter. He will be glad to see (John Godfrey) Raupert's investigations in Spiritism. He fears it is unlikely that he will ever be at Notre Dame, for he is 3 years older than Archbishop Ireland.

Storer, Maria Longworth: Boston, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They expect to spend their winters in Boston. Father (Robert Hugh) Benson told Storer that his account of Lourdes would be published in the Ave Maria soon. Benson went with them and spent the whole month of August in Versailles. It is depressing to come back to the United States and see the spread of Unitariansim. Benson thinks that for the United States to elect a Unitarian would be a step nearer to materialism and Felsenburg. Storer agrees with him; Archbishop (John) Ireland does not.

Riordan, Archbishop P(atrick) W(illiam): San Francisco, California
 to Father D(aniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Riordan is sending out a printed card of thanks for the many messages he received on the day of his silver jubilee. Hudson knows that the names sent to Rome on their "Terna" for a Coadjuctor have been returned. The reason given is that Father (Edward J.) Hanna is somewhat tainted with Modernistic doctrines, and to spare him they sent the entire list back as if some irregularity crept into it. Riordan is now looking for 3 other names. Bishop (Thomas James) Conaty of Los Angeles suggests the name of Father Morgan (M.) Sheedy of Altoona. Riordan has heard a great deal about him and very favorably. Riordan would like to know what Hudson knows about him and if possible his age. What they need on the Coast is a good active, young Bishop from 40 to 45, scholarly, and a ready and forceful speaker.

Christitch, E(lisabeth O'Brien): Belgrade, (Serbia)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The danger of war is not yet conjured, but there is a lull while the diplomats try to decide the fate of nations. Besides a rush of work for the London papers Christitch was doing press translations for the Legation at Belgrade. This will enable her to keep Janie in London with Annie. Janie took over the Pall Mall Gazette altogether and nearly all she sent to it got printed. Janie is far more tolerant than Annie. Annie and a Miss O'Connor have been trying to bring round Father (Joseph P.) Bannin to the cause of Votes for Women. On their return from Bavaria Nikola came there to prepare for Turin where he is at the Military Academy. Before he left, he became formally engaged (a photo of Nikola and his fiancee is enclosed). Her husband has lost all round, but he still prides himself on keeping up his principles.

Raupert, J(ohn) G(odfrey): Buffalo, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's handwriting is a constant reminder to him that he has one strong friend in this country. Raupert is going to talk to the students at the University independent of the question of money. He called upon the Bishop here yesterday. He was very affable and impressed by the letter from Rome, but as to the subject itself he seemed in entire ignorance. If nothing of any importance occurs, Raupert will probably move on to Philadelphia. His work will probably be in the chief cities of the East and he will stay there until he has brought the Roman view of things effectively before the people. He is thinking of putting off his return to Chicago until later in the year. Father (Luke F.?) Sharkey, is a Roman priest, and his companionship is very helpful to Raupert. At Chicago Raupert met a priest from Los Angeles who told him that Spiritism is rampant in California.

Corbin, Caroline E.F.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Archbishop Quigley mentioned that Hudson was interested in psychic matters. Corbin sends notes about two books she received from a Catholic publisher. (Notes contain Corbin's review of "Modern Spiritism" and "The Dangers of Spiritism" by John Godfrey Raupert). She trusts that her sincere conviction founded upon life-long knowledge of so called spiritualism may be sufficient apology for some strong expressions on seance and mediums.
