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

She wished Hudson could have been at Belmont Abbey on Monday for the presentation of the medal. There was a Southern warmth and spontaneity about it all which, as Father (James A.) Burns, (C.S.C.), told her, impressed him very much. She wishes Hudson could have heard the boys of the college cheering as they left the hall. The Benedictines spared no effort to show their appreciation. That Father (John W.) Cavanaugh, (C.S.C.) was not able to come was a disappointment to all of them. There was Bishop (Leo Haid, O.S.B.), Abbott (Father) Charles (H. Mohr, O.S.B.) from St. Leo's, Florida, and Father Felix, (Hintemeyer, O.S.B.), prior. Tiernan is sending Hudson a photograph of the scene and a very inadequate newspaper report (no enclosures). She enjoyed meeting Father (John A.) Zahm, C.S.C.

Mr. (John W.) Claypool is doing transactions with Berryhill. He is living with his friends the Monningers south of the city.

James, George Wharton: Pasadena, Calif(ornia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

For several years James has been impressed with the personal history of Virginia Reed Murphy of San Jose, one of the surviving members of the illfated Donner Party, aunt of Sister Anna Raphael, (C.S.C.) of the Convent of Notre Dame, and her sister of the Gilroy Convent. She married one of the best known men of early California, John M. Murphy from whom "Murphy's", a mining camp of Bret Harte fame was named. Her experiences will make a series of some fourteen to sixteen chapters or articles. While suffering at Donner she made a vow to become a Catholic. Mrs. Murphy has given him carte blanche. Would Hudson care to have the manuscripts? Mrs. Murphy is now 75 years of age and (Charles Warren) Stoddard loved her. (He encloses the) Introduction.

Donaldson, Jo(h)n M.: Detroit, (Michigan)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Donaldson thanks Hudson for the privilege of reading (Charles) Phillips' letter on the death of (Charles Warren) Stoddard. Donaldson's last word from Stoddard was after the earthquake in which he wrote of the shock it had been to him. It is good to know his last days were calm and peaceful. Donaldson has never known a man who so entwined himself in the affection of his friends.

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

Favis, Arteno: Manila, Philippine, Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Favis thanks Hudson for "Roads to Rome." A month after his return he worked in the Bureau of Education until October 15, 1908, when he was transferred to the Bureau of Justice. Last week Miss Florendo came to Manila to spend a few days with her sister and friends. She left for Santa Maria where she expects to teach. Ignacio Villamor, the Attorney General, showed a good deal of interest in the book. The Philippines still continue to be in a very deplorable economic condition. The "Philippines Free Press", edited by R. McCulloch Dick, issued a special number in commemoration of the successful closing of the Assembly.

Smith, Father J(ohn) T(albot): Dobb's Ferry, (New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Smith encloses an article on Mary Agnes Tincker and a letter which Hudson will kindly return. The more Smith reads her novels, the more he is convinced she was high up among the stars. "By the Tiber" is the best satire on the loafers that haunt the Roman court that he has ever seen. Smith is quite in paradise here. Smith sent an article to the "Catholic World" on "The Young Catholic Writer; What Shall He Do?" and John Burke was afraid to print it. It will appear therefore in Father Mullany's quarterly soon. This night the Sadlier Reading Circle of Dobb's Ferry gives a public entertainment in honor of Tincker. An account will appear in the Catholic News and elsewhere. Hudson is to send three copies of the notice of Tincker in the "Ave Maria" to Mrs. Charles Milliken, Boston.

Ledvina, E.B.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

They shipped him some articles that belonged to the paraphernalia of the late Bishop (Frederick Z.) Rooker. The articles were sent to them by a Convent that received them from relatives. They did not like to offer these articles to the public and give them to Edwards for his museum. (Note: Deatiled information about the Catholic Church Extension Society is printed on the paper.

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

Tiernan thanks Hudson for the enclosures from General (Newton Martin) Curtis. She encloses a letter from Pustet, (no enclosure) and will write to General Curtis. Curtis has paid a beautiful tribute to Colonel Lamb. The defence of Fort Fisher must have been one of the most wonderful things of the kind in history.
