(1909) (Aug.)
Storer, Maria Longworth: Saranac Lake, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Storer encloses a letter which she wrote to "America" on the decadence of France (no enclosure). The danger in which our country finds itself she believes comes from French radical influences. The only hope for religion lies in Germany and Austria. Atheism is undermining France and Italy. The next emperor of Austria, Franz Ferdinand, is a devoted Catholic. Storer sends a sonnet to Pius X on the next page. Hudson may publish it with or without the author's name.

1909 Aug.
Vaughan, Bishop John S(tephen): Manchester, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Vaughan thanks Hudson for his telegram on his consecration day. Vaughan was promising himself a visit to the United States, but now that the Holy Father has popped a mitre on his head he feels bound for the present. Of course, an auxiliary is not so tied down. He finds the change in climate very trying. He hopes the Ave Maria is as flourishing as ever.

(1909) (Aug.)
Walsh, Thomas: Mt. Arlington, (New Jersey)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Now that he is at his desk again will Hudson let him have the proof of the Huysman article. His trip in the South was a great experience. He nade his headquarters at Biarritz. Walsh is told Hudson is giving his coming book a notice in the Ave Maria. "The Prison Ships" should reach Hudson just about the second week in October. He has just received (Alfred) Noyes' poem, "Drake". Walsh met Noyes at Mrs. Meynell's. It is an outspoken glorification of Protestantism. P.S. Perhaps Hudson can send him a word regarding the fate of the library and souvenirs of Charles Warren Stoddard. Walsh knows where there is a vast body of his correspondence.

1909 Aug. 3
Crawford, Elizabeth Marion: (Sorrento, Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Crawford thanks Hudson for his letter and the mortuary cards. She sent one to Mrs. Fraser in Winthrop, Washington. She hopes to send her husband's crucifix soon by a friend who is on the point of sailing.

1909 Aug. 7
F(elicia, C.S.C.), Sister M.:
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

They are getting anxious not having heard from Edwards for over a month. Edwards has many true and faithful friends there. It has been warm. She hopes it has been cool and pleasant where Edwards is. They look for a card everyday.

1909 Aug. 7
Copelin, Minnie I.: Paris, (France)
 to (James F. Edwards: Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

She was so glad to receive Edwards' letter telling of his improved health. She got some literature at Notre Dame des Victoires and a little picture for Edwards. The paper she writes on has a water mark of Our Lady of Victories. They go to London tomorrow.

1909 Aug. 9
Gish, John L.: South Bend, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

Edwards' short note came this morning and he can see a substantial improvement has been made in the case, since Edwards last wrote. He does not want Edwards to take any more liquids for the present. In time of need the little pills from the Boston physician will help.

1909 Aug. 10
Hudson, C.S.C., Father Daniel E.: Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

He was glad to hear that Edwards is daily gaining strength. Father Smith's appointment is one of the best things Father (John W.) C(avanaugh, C.S.C.) has done; it offsets many mistakes of inexperience. The plastering on the new hall began today. There was trouble securing workmen as usual. Bishop (Camillus Paul) Maes has been very ill, but is now better. Mr. (William J.) Onahan was there at the first of the month. Msgr. Linneborn is expected soon.

1909 Aug. 10
Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Kennedy's say no, "The Wargrave Trust" is Hudson's. If not she will try to cut out the Catholic portions and perhaps some secular publisher will risk issuing it. She thanks Hudson for his offer of assistance about the suggested lectures, but it would be foolish to go into such a thing without at least a fair prospect of success, and that prospect she does not see. She encloses a note of the subjects which she thought of for the proposed lectures (no enclosure).

Seton, Archbishop Robert: Perpignan, (France)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

Since he wrote, he continued his circular tour of France and now finds himself in the south-west corner of the French Mediterranean. He has seen several new cities and visited several old acquaintances. He only passed through Rennes and Montauban. He visited the Cathedral in Perpignan. He leaves tomorrow for Barcelona. Father Walmersley, S.J. gave him letters to his colleauges at Mauresa. He is content, on the whole, with his tour. He had several conversations with Father de la Croix in Poitiers. Without a man like Edwards, immense treasures of the Church would remain unknown or lost.

Smith, Mary I.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to James (F.) Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Some friends are getting up an exhibition of (J. Francis) Smith's work and they would like to have the picture of the young French peasant girl Smith gave Edwards. They hope Edwards has entirely regained his health.

Raymond, (C.S.C.) Brother: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

1909 Aug. 24
Seton, Archbishop Robert: Barcelona, (Spain)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

He hopes Edwards is quite well now; Edwards is still young compared to Seton. He has so much yet to tell Edwards and to arrange with him about some things he wants Edwards to have for Memorial Hall and how to get them there after his death. Bishop (Thomas F.) Kennedy is forgetful and does not always keep his word. He wanted to entrust legally the Rector or the Vice-rector of the American College for the time being to take full charge of his property and affairs in Rome at his death. Of course his heir, Thomas Seton Jevons would make necessary compensation on his arrival. He leaves Giuseppe and his wife all his household effects. He wishes Edwards would give him a list of the episcopal things which would be appropriate for him to give Notre Dame. He mentions some things he has. His health is not excellent — he has not taken care of himself in the sense of codling. He never expected to survive so many years. When young he was a weakling, but he inherited a strong constitution. He goes to Valencia next week.

1909 Aug. 25
Fraser, Mary Crawford: Winthrop, Washington
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She feels so deeply Hudson's appreciation of her brother (Francis Marion Crawford). The world never knew him and it has been painful to read the mistaken comments in the newspapers. She is living in a backwoods area and asks Hudson's prayers for they are trying to build a church and obtain a resident priest. The Masonic societies flourish. She is founding a Catholic library and would be grateful for any books Hudson could spare.

Kearsley, Margaret: Detroit, Michigan
 to James F. Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

Peterson, Ethel: Georgetown, (British Guiana)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Through the offices of Fred (A.) Small she has been made aware of Hudson's kind interest in her case and handed "object" forwarded by Hudson. She has been wearing same for about 9 days, but can report no definite results as yet.

1909 Aug. 27
Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sickness prevented Tiernan from answering Hudson's letter sooner and thanking him for the $300 for the copyright of "The Wargrave Trust". It may be the last distinctly Catholic story that she may ever write. Kennedys offered only 10 per copy. She has never been offered less than 10% on the retail price. Tiernan no longer has any popularity with the general public owing in a degree to the Catholicity introduced into her stories.

Gish, John L.: South Bend, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards: Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

He is very glad to know that Edwards is getting along in fine shape. He should take his trip through the Eastern States slowly and not come home before October 1st. They have had a very, very hot summer.

1909 Aug. 28
Small, Fred A.: Demarara, British Guiana
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

His poor patient (Ethel Peterson) is wearing Hudson's favor in eager anticipation. The intelligences mock at her asking if she thinks they are afraid of it. He thanks Hudson for suggesting (John Godfrey) Raupert's works. He read "Dangers of Spiritualism".

1909 Aug. 29
Seton, Archbishop Robert: Barcelona, (Spain)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He hopes this letter will find Edwards restored in health and that he will hear soon. It is much warmer in Barcelona at this season than on the other, San Sebastian, side. One must go to look for the signs of devastation by the anarchists; he has seen only one institution in ruins. Mostly one sees nothing but orderliness and peace. He said Mass in the ancient crypt of the Holy Cross Cathedral at the tomb of Saint Eulolia. It is impossible to describe the attention shown him. He sent Edwards a picture of himself in travelling costume. Archbishop (John M.) Farley has arrived back in New York and Father (Thomas J.) Ducey is dead. Ducey was not an edifying priest although he had certain social qualities and held a position in the city that no Catholic clergymen ever had before. Ducey and Archbishop (Michael Augustine) Corrigan never got on together. Seton suspects Corrigan was afraid of his subordinate. Some one sent him a copy of "Town Topics" with an article entitled "Egregios Archiepiscopus" that was damaging to Corrigan's reputation. He read it to Satolli who said that it was fine. The Life, which Monsignor (John) Farley got out is the veriest trash.

Gavin, E.W.: Waukegan, Illinois
 to James F. Edwards: (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia)

He returns the likeness of Bishop (Anthony) O'Regan which Edwards so kindly sent him months ago. He is to blame for not returning it earlier and must not look for any further favors from Notre Dame. He thanks Edwards for the kindness. His set of likenesses of all the bishops of Chicago is complete.
