Agius, O.S.B., Archbishop A(mbrose): Manila, Philippine Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Agius thanks Hudson for the check for $181.50 to be applied for Filipino students. Agius has just returned from an extended tour through the Southern Islands. The leakage in the fold and the destruction in church property are terrible, and all could be saved with more money and men. Agius relies much on these new congregations of missionaries who are doing glorious work. He gives a letter of introduction to Hudson, to Francisco Delgado Enaje de Jesus, who will shortly leave for Notre Dame. The father does not wish him to go back to Cornell where he has studied for two years and six months. Agius knows Francisco will find a firm hand and healthy moral surroundings at Notre Dame. Agius realizes what a loss Father Rawlinson is to them.

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 exquisite letters of the Chinese boy (Francis Xavier Hsieh). It is great that Hudson can help him so much with counsel and kindness. Does Hudson think there might be an opening for some lectures on literary subjects in the higher Catholic feminine schools of the country? She fears she is not likely to find a publisher for the "Wargrave Trust" who will offer acceptable terms. She would be glad if Hudson could take the copyright for $300 cash. She began a letter to General (Newton Martin) Curtis, but a sharp touch of hay-asthma forced her to put down the pen. She was shocked to see that Colonel Lamb became a Republican. Tiernan is working her way through Laetare Medal letters.

Yunsiang, Tsao: Oxford, Conn(ecticut)
 TO Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Yunsiang thanks Hudson for his clippings and is glad Hudson endorses his expressions. In the higher regions of altruism, minds of all nations can agree. One of his professors wrote to him after seeing his letter, "It is the conduct of the multitude of the righteous that in the long run will prevail."

Crawford, Elizabeth Marion: (Sorrento, Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Crawford is grateful to Hudson for having written a defense of her husband. What the papers said about (Francis) Marion (Crawford)'s last days was utterly untrue. She will send by a friend in a few weeks an old crucifix which belonged to her husband. She believes it must have been given to him when he became a Catholic in India many years ago. Their oldest daughter brought it to Jerusalem to touch Christ's tomb with it.

Walsh, Thomas: Ostende, (Belgium)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Walsh had no idea of attempting to dispose of the Huysman's article and translations which were made expressly for the Ave Maria. This morning there was a procession and the blessing of the sea. Walsh was very fortunate to know some friends of the Meynells. They asked him to lunch and he met Alfred Noyes, Mrs. Harland and Father Hoban of Maynooth. P.S. Walsh regrets that Hudson can not use the C(harles) W(arren) Stoddard sonnet. Mr. Meynell was very interested in all that pertained to Stoddard. Mrs. Meynell is very rare and lovely in personality. Bruges was very wonderful and he goes to Ghent tomorrow enroute to Brussels and Antwerp, and then to Spain. His first collection of verse "The Prison Ships and Other Poems" will appear in September.

Gish, John L.: So(uth) Bend, Ind(iana)
 to (James F.) Edwards:

Edwards' letter was received. The general report and contents could not have been better for so short a time. Let the good work go on. He instructs Edwards in the use of the white solution and the black drops and tablets. Edwards should stimulate all normal conditions as rapidly as he can.

Guiney, L(ouise) I(mogen): Auburndale, Mass(achuse)tts
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Guiney is back. She wonders if Hudson has been posting copies to Oxford. She recanted all she had complained of when at Mass last Sunday in the next village, she got unmercifully squeezed, deafened by a shrieking gallery choir, and sat through a twenty minute (sermon) on finances. Her mother and she are in their old home.

Percy: Tusket, N(ova) S(cotia)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Yarmouth, N(ova) S(cotia)

Port Maitland couldn't come so they got Hebron to come. They only played 5 innings and they beat them 33 to 7. They are going to try to get a 2nd Y.M.C.A. team for next Saturday.

Courson, Countess Barbara de: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Courson encloses a receipt for the check in payment of her "Home of Martyrs" and "An Old World City". She hopes the paper on the "Hotel Birou" may be of some interest in America where the Sacre Coeur nuns are. Courson's oldest son is going to be married. He is a cavalry officer, a very good, intelligent, steady boy. She hopes Hudson is well. There is a decided reaction in favor of religion in the large towns. In the country it is different owing to the influence of the lay schools. The war raged against religion in France is prompted by hatred of God. Does Hudson know any of the editors of the American Catholic Quarterly that is published at Philadelphia? She wrote three articles for them and has not been paid. Miss O'Meara continues in much the same condition, she has had no second stroke.

Cleary, Father Henry W: Dunedin, New Zealand
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Cleary believes in ghosts in moderation. He was one of more than a dozen persons who had during some 20 years a series of the most disturbing manifestations in a haunted house in Ireland. He is not even skeptical of psychic phenomena, which Father Miller and others claim to be preternatural. The too ready credulity displayed by some Catholics on the phenomena of spiritism has done much sporadic mischief among Catholic women. He has been besought by the ablest missionaries in Australia and New Zealand to write something to combat this mischief.

Lum, Po Heng: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Lum thanks Hudson for his clipping and magazine. The interest Hudson has taken in their students and the high tribute paid to their minister and fellow countrymen are greatly appreciated. It is especially gratifying to hear Christian words while they are suffering from the racial prejudice of the American people.

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

Tiernan thanks Hudson for the painted and illuminated address on the Laetare Medal. She has had $600 on "The Wargrave Trust" and $70 for "The Coin of Sacrifice." She is sending the story to Kennedy and Sons as he suggested. She thanks Hudson for his advice on the lectures. There would be no object in it if she made no more than expenses. She returns the Chinese letters.

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

Tiernan forgot to mention her admiration of the memorial card of (Charles Warren) Stoddard. That quotation from the ancient liturgy is such an immense improvement on the conventional prayer.

1909 July 25
Seton, Archbishop Robert: Vannes, (France)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He read in a French newspaper a report sent from Rome about the forced resignation of Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding, saying that it was a mistake to believe that the Bishop had voluntarily resigned for reasons of health and age but was obliged to resign as a Modernist and a Feminist encouraging woman suffrage. Seton thinks it leaked out in Rome probably through the Caldwells that his resignation was demanded. He noticed the absolute insolent disregard of Public Opinion manifested by Spalding; it has brought him grief. He is not a retailer of scandal; he is not writing for publication. He has never noticed anything so scandalous in Bishop Spalding as he has seen and heard of Bishop (John S.) Foley of Detroit. He then tells of his own movements and travels since he left Rome in June, giving details. The pectoral cross he uses on his travels has a relic of St. Fr(ancis) X(avier), the patron of travellers. He is well. The program of the Jubilee of the American College in Rome was too diffuse, not concise enough. Many were disappointed that he was not called on to respond to a toast at the banquet. (Note: Enclosure found pinned to the letter follows:)

1910 Feb. 14
Cavanaugh, C.S.C., Father John (S.): Notre Dame, (Indiana)

He wishes to say before this letter is laid away and to aid future readers in understanding the reference to Bishop Spalding that the letter was written by an old gossip and is an credible as the confidences that pass between old maids.

Hoynes, W(illia)m: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Yarmouth, N(ova) S(cotia)

He is greatly improved in health as he prays may be the case also with Edwards. He hopes to see Edwards perfectly well in September.

O'Kennedy, Father R(ichard): Fedamore, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Kennedy thanks Hudson for the memorial card of (Charles Warren) Stoddard and for Father Barry's translation of the "Dies Irae". He was the simplest of men but had to be treated with a little tact. All of (Charlotte Grace) O'Brien's relatives, who are Protestant, are grateful to Hudson for his little memento of her. Hudson will find in the next parcel of "His Grace of Cashel" and enclosed slip: "A Protestant Hymn to Our Lady." It is by her. All the principal characters of the story and most of the events are historical. Hudson knows O'Kennedy cannot go to Indiana. It would be a joy to Sister Carmel if he could be there for her profession. He wrote to Mother General to thank her for a second copy of "The Book of the Lily."
