Fischer, J. and Bro(ther): New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

They notice an erroneous statement made in the review of Dr. A. Edmonds Tozer's book "Proper of the Mass" which appears on page 95 of the Ave Maria. It is apt to do them much harm. The "Proper of the Mass" is not offered to the public as containing Gregorian settings. Tozer's work has done much good in this country as well as in England, and the Proper of the Mass is now being sung from these volumes where otherwise it would have been an impossibility to carry out the mandates of the Holy Father. They hope Hudson can make the correction in one of the next issues.

Springer, A(lbert) G(uy): Trinidad, Colo(rado)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, (Indiana)

He wants Edwards to go to Father (John W.) Cavanaugh, (C.S.C.) and find out if he could enter Notre Dame again. He has ground out where he was a fool and would come back to learn something. If Edwards would do this at once he could start studying to make up.

Vaughan, Father John S(tephen): Rome, Italy
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Vaughan noticed that his verses appeared in the Jan. 9th issue. Hudson forgot the Reverend before the name. He is not simply a lay-man. Did Hudson ever get a copy of "How I came to do it?" Vaughan is now contributing a series of articles for the Catholic Times on the "Purpose of the Papacy". Hudson said "Dangers of the Day" would appear before Lent. Archbishop (John) Ireland relieves him of the pulpit next Sunday. Ireland's sister and three other nuns are also in Rome. Vaughan sees that Hudson has his nephew, Herbert, at Notre Dame, but Herbert has not written to Vaughan.

Ambrose, Sister M.:
St. Mary's, Vigo Co., Ind(iana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Their reverend Mother asked her to write Edwards with the hope that in the collection he got at Vincennes there are some letters and mss. relative to the early experiences of their holy founders, Mother Theodore Guerin, for whom the Bishop has given permission for the prosecution of the cause of canonization. They would like to use this material, if possible, the originals.

Hannon, John: Isleworth, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hannon encloses (two clippings concerning his "The Kings and the Cats"). Burns and Oates have treated him very well in money matters. After three and a half years as a distinctively Catholic writer, he is plunged into a lassitude and disgust. If it were not for America and Ireland he could not go on in the face of the universal Catholic apathy in England. He could of course revert to secular, journalism, but it seems so heard now. The unkindness of the small group running the Catholic papers is what hurts. He is making plaint of the entire isolation in Catholic England of the Catholic man of letters.

Sadlier, Anna T.: (Montreal, Canada)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's encouragement has been the prime factor in much literary incentive. It has been a great help to her. She is sending him two articles which he may publish with or without a name. She asks Hudson to be allowed to publish one of her stories. Herder will take a story. It will help her financially. It will be a sad day when Charles Warren Stoddard no longer gives his charming sketches.

McCarthy, Laura L.: Omaha, Nebrasks
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

She longed to write Edwards how much she appreciated the kind thought of her during her sorrow. She is still depressed and heart broken. It is six months ago today that her darling was called to her eternal home. She gives detailed news of her family and some friends. She is earnest and will visit her Alma Mater, St. Mary's this spring. She was distressed to learn of Edwards' illness. Next year her darling boy enters Creighton.

"Aeronautics", (Journal of): New York, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Librarian: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

They ask if the library is making any effort to keep informed on the fascinating subject. "Aeronautics" is the only journal of its kind in America; it is scientific, thorough and reliable.

Churchill, H(arriet) B.: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Churchill does not know why she looks upon Hudson as an old friend rather than a publisher of her contributions. Churchill met (Louise Imogen) Guiney in Oxford. Churchill was present at part of the Eucharistic Congress. She consulted the Franciscan Superior of Chester about her contribution to (Georgina Pell) Curtis' book. He advised her to tell the whole story, but Curtis objected, which was a relief to Churchill.

Springer, B.F.: Trinidad, Colorado
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

He thanks Edwards for his favors in behalf of his son Albert(G. Springer). He is heartily desirous of having Albert re-enter Notre Dame. When Albert's inclinations for sports interfere with his studies he must be curtailed in them by the faculty. Albert may manifest loyalty to the college in everything but may participate only for exercise. Albert must not be allowed to visit any of the adjacent towns or colleges as a spectator; nor will he be allowed to visit South Bend without Springer's written permission. Edwards should write the same to Albert. He is contemplating sending Frank (Springer) to Notre Dame.

Lambert, Geo(rge): Wellington, New Zealand
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Like the United States, New Zealand is suffering from pecuniary depression. Lambert has lost a little money on investments and more if things don't improve. He is hoping for better times, and with the return of prosperity will remember Hudson's kindness.

 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Raupert hopes to be in Los Angeles on Tuesday at St. Vincent's College. They had a splendid gathering yesterday. The New Zealand Tablet makes one bitterly indignant. Everybody informed except the Catholic priest! He asks Hudson to take charge of the enclosed (no enclosure) and send it to his wife in case of accident.

Smith, Father John Talbot: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Smith sends a story he heard upstate. The characters and incidents are all fiction, but the rest is true. The place is Holland Patent where President Cleveland was born. The district is really the hunting ground of the Oneidas, whose Thendara was introduced to the modern public by Robert Chambers in his "The Reckoning." The new form of the book on the seminaries goes to the printer in March and Smith has almost completed arrangements with Longmans to bring it out. The book list is well on its way. The Summer School promises to make it their second publication.

Fish, Grace S.: Portland, Oregon
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

The telegram reached her in Portland; surely she is blessed with such true and good friends. She often thinks of Edwards when she is away. They leave Friday for San Francisco, then on south. They expect to be home the first of April. Edwards must give her regards to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson (C.S.C.)

James, George Wharton: Spokane, Washington
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

James will be glad to write the articles on the missions of California even at the small compensation Hudson is able to pay. If he sends half tones can Hudson afford to electrotype them and illustrate the articles? He ought to write at least six articles on the subject.

McGlurg & Co. A.C.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Referring to Edwards' order of the 23rd, they beg to say that they have ordered the book sent to Edwards direct from the publishers. They are unable to find listed in their catalogues a book on Parables by Moulton. They send three which they trust will be satisfactory.

Sands, Mary Meade. Mrs. James H. Sands: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sands asks the prayers of the Ave Maria for the soul of her brother-in-law, Admiral Samuel P. Franklin, U.S. Navy, who died on Feb. 24. Franklin was a devoted convert to the Faith. Years ago she was greatly impressed by a remark of his repeated to her by a friend of his about his "Commander-in-Chief."

Guiney, L(ouise) I(mogen): Newton Centre, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Guiney asks Hudson's prayers for her mother who died on Feb. 5. Guiney was not with her, having been very ill since Christmas Day. She hopes by the end of next week to get back to town. Guiney asks Hudson if she may sometime quote the translation of "O Sol Salutis" in the current Ave Maria? It so dominated the poetry of Henry Vaughan, whom she means to edit. She would like to know its translator and its place in the liturgy. P.S. She is using the prayer on (Charles W) Stoddard's memorial card for her mother's Janet Margaret Guiney.

Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan is glad Hudson passed the chapter about the confession. She wanted no blunder in this matter like (Francis) Marion Crawford's blunders on the confessional. Tiernan thanks him for letting her see the pleasant words about her work which his correspondent has written. She has no sense of popularity to buoy up her spirits and is glad of anything that helps to revive her courage.

Stanislaus, C.S.C., Brother: New Orleans, L(ouisian)a
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He is sorry that he cannot give any information about the cross. He has never heard the matter alluded to and doesn't know whence the cross was taken. He suggests a way to discover the proper place; the matter is delicate. He left St. Edward's and has been with Father (Daniel) Spillard for three year at Holy Cross College. He has often thought of Edwards' kindnesses.
