Coolbrith, Ina: San Francisco, Cal(ifornia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Coolbrith has the sad task of collecting the poems of Charles Warren Stoddard, a friend of her youth and of all her life. Can Hudson help her in her search by listing all Stoddard's poems which have appeared in the Ave Maria? Will Hudson send her the Ave Maria for May 15 and 22? She found a number of Hudson's letters in Stoddard's correspondence and asks if he wants them or should they be destroyed.

Cleary, Tho(ma)s: Cedar Point, Ohio
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has been working 14 to 16 hours daily up to this time and was too tired to write. Conditions there are more pleasant with the large number of Notre Dame boys on the island. The Hyle brothers and Mr. (Marcellus Matthew) Oshe were there, and Father Schumacher. He discusses his work in the library with Edwards.

O'Shea, John J.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Shea thanks Hudson for his private and public references to the work of the paper he has presided over for 13 years. The first duty of a Catholic editor is to forget his own personality completely, insofar as his public teaching is concerned. Hudson's magazine is an admirable example of what Catholic journalism should be.

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

Walsh expects to be at Notre Dame about the middle of October, and about that time he will be able to send Hudson the third of the papers on "Old Things Old Time Wit and Humor". P.S. Walsh is sending Hudson for review the "Makers of Electricity" by Brother Potamian and himself.

Shahan, Father Thomas J.: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Shahan arrived home safe from his Western jaunt, and one of its most pleasant features was their frequent conversations. He asks Hudson to make up his mind to spend a few days with them this winter. Shahan will not ask him to say anything to their young men unless he feels inclined to. P.S. Shahan is having the list of his books printed for Hudson.

Seton, Archbishop Robert: Pamplona, (Spain)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He never finds much time to write on his travels. He is anxious to hear from Edwards. He came there from Saragossa last week. He is glad he is there. The bishop there has been exceedingly obliging and polite. He assisted in the ceremonies on the Nativity. He just returned from a three day excursion into the country. He leaves tomorrow morning; He gives the line of travel ending at Madrid. Edwards has never answered his inquiry about the "Seven Hills" magazine. He said Mass in the little church of St. Ignatius that has many souvenirs of the society but now served by the Redemptorists.

Williams, C(harles): Cheshire, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The case related in "Glimpses of the Supernatural" is interesting and appears to have been one of true "possession". With reference to the process of exorcism he sees a reference to the use of a form and would be obliged if Hudson would kindly send him this form or tell him where he can obtain a copy. He will send in return three books of his which are to appear soon, two of which are "Spiritualism and Insanity" and "Religion and Insanity". All three deal largely with the subject of "possession".

Cleophas, Mother M. Sup. General: St. Mary's Vigo County, Indiana
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has the pleasure of acknowledging Edwards' two esteemed letters announcing the honor of a visit from Bishop (Francis Frederick) Linneborn (C.S.C.) and she begs Edwards to convey to him her deep appreciation. Regarding the documents Edwards has sent them, they will return them today retaining a few letters until they will have been seen by the Commissioners in the Cause. They appreciated the confidence with which the papers were entrusted to them. They are glad of Edwards improvement in health.

Fraser, Mary C(rawford): Winthrop, Wash(ington)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Fraser thanks Hudson for his defense of her brother Marion (Francis Crawford). Her publisher, Herder, told her he sent Hudson a copy of her new book, "Giannella" for review. She is now writing her "Reminiscences" of her youth in old Rome and her diplomatic experiences of her marriage. She had to speak of so many matters connected with the Church during the reign of Pius IX.

Guiney, L(ouise) I(mogen): Houlton, Maine
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Guiney thanks Hudson for his compliments, Mr. Russell's mention of her "Campion", for the check, and for the memorial card of Stoddard. Would Hudson like three Eucharistic sonnets of hers and one of her "A.M." leaflets. She cannot induce herself to include them among the verses which are to be printed this autumn by Houghton, Mifflin and Co.

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

Raupert is sorry for the delay in working out that case of possession. He had a heart attack 10 days ago and has to have absolute rest. His book is practically finished and Herder will bring it out. Raupert asks Hudson to superintend its production if Raupert will not be able to do it. Raupert feels if the Catholic people had helped him more this would not have occurred. There is no one to take his place and much work remains.

Dwight, Theodore F.: Vaud, Switzerland
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson has been in Dwight's thought ever since Charlie (Warren Stoddard) died. Not long ago (Marie Longworth) Storer was there and they talked of Hudson and Stoddard. Dwight remembers how he and Stoddard sat together at night in San Francisco after Stoddard's return from the South Seas. They had Stoddard's sister, (Sara Ada Makee) as a neighbor last winter—a delightful being. When she returned to Cambridge to arrange Stoddard's effects Dwight suggested that she send the crucifix which his wife had given Stoddard in 1897 to Hudson. He trusts Willy Woodworth has forwarded it. Life is simple there and the time will come when they will have to return to America for the education of their boy.

Schultz, Miss: Rome, (Italy)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Miss Schultz would be obliged if they would let her know under which conditions they would consent to translations of their publications. The work in question is (Bishop) John (Stephen) Vaughan's "Dangers of the Day" to be translated into German. Vaughan has authorized Schultz's undertaking.

Dougherty, Bishop D(ennis) J.: Manila, P(hilippine) I(slands)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dougherty is in Manila to say goodbye to Monsignor (Ambrose) Agius, (O.S.B.) who is leaving for Rome on a four months' leave of absence. This should be an advantage for the Church here, because of the many questions he will be able to solve. Dougherty received Hudson's letter before he left Jaro in which, as in the Ave Maria, his sympathy for them is manifest.

Paine, (Robert Edwards) Bob: New York, (New York)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He is ashamed for not writing sooner. He asks Edwards to forgive him for not seeing him before he left last June. He is now on his way to fair Harvard to enter the business and administration course. Notre Dame is a grand old place;; he may go there at Easter. He is determined to study more there that he did at Notre Dame. He asks Edwards to write.

Vance, Florence S.: Gambroon, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson's notice of M(ary) A(gnes) Tincker relieved Vance of the impression that Tincker had died in a lunatic asylum. The other notice in which she felt a special interest was of that grand old Woman— Mrs. (Sarah Worthington King Peter) Peters of Cincinnati. One day at McLain prison Vance's brother, a prisoner, trying to warm Vance of a Mrs. Waller, a paid spy of the United States Government, turned to Mrs. Peter and told his sister of how she had kept them from starving. Her brother had been one of Morgan's men and his regiment was first imprisoned in Camp Douglass in the winter of (18)62. The North had a Mrs. Morris of Chicago shut up in McLain Barracks in a room with twenty-seven men. Mrs. Morris was a sister of Senator Blackburn of Kentucky and wife of Judge Morris of Chicago. Vance thinks it was Mrs. Peter who secured her removal. Towards the end of October they expect to have a new church dedicated in Asheville.

Tiernan encloses a type-written list of subjects of lectures (no enclosure), and a letter for the heads of the different institutions. In sending Miss Browne's circular as an example she did not mean to imply that she liked it. Miss McCabe's circular is infinitely better.

Seton, Archbishop Robert: Madrid, (Spain)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was very much pleased to receive Edwards' letter. He tells where he was since Morlaix. He has changed his route many times. One of his pleasures of travel is to be absolutely independent. He said Mass in the little chapel of the Lady Catechists. He does not remember if he told Edwards of his meeting a little band of them three years ago; he relates the story mentioning Father Collins, the Catholic and Senior Chaplain of the Forces at Gibraltar. He visited with one of the band again. It makes him happy to be so kindly remembered by people. He heard before he left Rome that Bishop J(ohn) L(ancaster) S(palding) would be made a Titular Archbishop; Spalding has distinct and numerous merits and no charitable person will longer remember the indiscretions of his younger years; he has Seton's sympathy and respect in his perhaps unhappy state of life. Edwards mentions another in connection with an ill-favored report of a "prelate from New England", (Archbishop William H. O'Connell?) he has qualities which impress common people, those without high and proper ideals, qualities which disgust and repel people of the gentry class who hate coarseness, pomposity, cringing ambition. Authorities in Rome who have not the intuitions of what is becoming, are easily hood-winked. Where there is money, his influence is irresistable.

Tisdale, Lienella(?) Gephart: Yosemite, Cal(ifornia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Century Company has sent Hudson for review a copy of Tisdale's "Three Years Behind the Guns". Her name Lienella Gephart, Niles, Michigan, appears in four of the St. Mary's catalogues of the sixties. Admiral Dewey and others, believing the writer to be a seaman, have said most flattering things about the book. A great deal of merit must be attributed to the Sisters of the Holy Cross who trained her pen. (She encloses a photograph of) Bridal Veil, Yosemite, Vernal, and Nevada Falls.

Foley, John J.: Marquette, Mich(igan)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Were he to go to Bishop (Frederick) Eis without some friendly help his work would likely be turned over to Father (Joseph) Pinter for examination. Foley's father's brother and Bishop (Patrick Augustine) Feehan were chums at Maynooth. When Feehan became Bishop of Tennessee there was not a single Catholic School in Tennessee. While at Johnson City in 1889, the nearest priest was Father Oliver at Bristol. Foley took 30 to Bristol for Mass. Foley wants to show a Protestant by a line of reasoning from his own King James Bible that he is wrong in his religious beliefs. He knows the Bishop cannot refuse a teacher the pleasure of being commissioned to examine for him an old pupil's work. Foley has not made a single move since he got Hudson's letter in July. He will give the Bishop a copy when Hudson tells him and at the same time he will show him the Cardinal's letter showing by what high authority it came into existence.

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

Tiernan does not wonder that Hudson was shocked by "Sir Richard Calmady" by Mrs. (Mary St. Leger) Harrison. The book was written before Harrison became a Catholic and she has since made noble amends in her "The Far Horizon." Hudson will see why she included Harrison in her list of Catholic authors thought perhaps she is not exactly for young girls. Tiernan is afraid she did not consider sufficiently the immaturity of those to be addressed.
