(1909) Oct. 2
Raupert, J(ohn) Godfrey: Dunkirk, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Raupert is sending the manuscript of the Luxemburg case of possession. He has done his best since his illness to finish the work. It is as clear a case of possession as ever the enlightened and the scientific could demand. The Holy Father knows the danger and is striving to warn the world, but what can he do if there is no cooperation. Raupert hopes to come to some decision as to his movements next week and will let Hudson know. His heart is still very unsatisfactory and does not seem to recover itself.

Parker, John J.: Portsmouth, V(irgini)a
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He has not forgotten the professor who was so good to him during his short stay at the beautiful and beloved Alma Mater if he may call it that after the way he left if so disgracefully. How many times since his expulsion from the University has he not regretted his last chance to a thorough education. It has been over three years since he smoked a coffin nail (cigarette) or taken a drink. He cast a blur on his life and caused his parents considerable worry. He wishes he had seen then his folly. He encloses his card. (note: the card is attached.)

Campbell, W.L.: Yarmouth (Nova Scotia)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He just returned after a three weeks vacation, quite invigorated. He spent his vacation in the eastern part of the Province with his brother and friends he had not seen for forty years. They thank Edwards for all his kind remembrances. He should be a better man having spent so much time with a man who knew the religion of Jesus Christ as well as Edwards.

Graham, Father Henry G.: Motherwell, Scotland
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson has given kindly notices to Graham's contributions in the Catholic press under the nom de plume "Alfonsus". He has almost completed the account of the steps that led him from the ministry of the Presbyterian Church to be a priest. Would such material be suitable for the Ave Maria? Would he be able to make an abridgment of it to offer to the C(atholic) T(ruth) S(ociety) afterwards? (He encloses a business card.)

(Carroll), Frank (E.): Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

They are well there. He went to see Father (Walter J.) Browne who is new rector of Maynard, Massachusetts. The last few days Harvard (University) spread herself at the inauguration of a new president. There were no degrees given to anyone of the faith. He presumes they are not modern enough. Elliot has found a new religion—old doctrines couched in well-studied Aurelian framed religious phrases. He encloses newspaper clippings and asks Edwards to remember him to old friends.

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

Raupert is glad the introduction is satisfactory. Raupert appreciates all Hudson has to say, but is anxious to try this experiment. He has found a man here who understands things and who will do all the distributing and notices of the new work will be sent to all the clergy both here and in England. He does not yet know how to find the funds. It may be his last work. His heart is increasingly giving out. The doctor protests against his working. Lombroso's book is out and Busefia Palladino is on the way to this country.

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

Fraser does not know how to thank Hudson for publishing her appeal for help for the library, and for consenting to read the proofs of her book when they are ready.

Onahan, William J.: (Chicago, Illinois)
 to Father (John W.) Cavanaugh, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

This letter (on which he writes) will interest Cavanaugh. The writer overestimated Onahan's resources; it is out of the question for him to aid. Some friend of Notre Dame might be willing to do so with Cavanaugh's approval.

Note: This message was written on a letter from the Arthur H. Clark Company, of Cleveland, Ohio to Onahan, telling of the necessity of making available much of the important material relating to the early history of the country that is hidden away in the various Archives in Spain and in the private collections of the various religious orders, particularly the Augustinians and Jesuits. Arthur Clark wants to send Dr. James A. Robertson to Spain to prepare the manuscripts for publication. Clark wants Onahan to maintain Robertson in Spain. He gives details of the proposition and Robertson's qualifications.

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

He received his letters from Guiseppe. He leaves for the Bristol Hotel at Gibraltar Saturday. On Monday he takes a boat to Naples and then back to Rome. He was glad to hear from Edwards and to know that his health is improving. Seton believes that he is the maddest man and rather given to self-depreciation; but he has received personal compliments from many sorts of people, that would have turned the hands of perhaps most priests or prelates. He saw in an American paper that Doctor (John A.) Zahm, (C.S.C.) was president of an Aeroplane Society. He asks if Zahm is "all right" in an ecclesiastical sense. He congratulates Edwards on the "finds" of things belonging to Bishops (Henry) Cosgrove, (Frederick Z) Rooker and others. Edwards is doing an extraordinary good and interesting, even invaluable, work. It annoys him that some of his confreres have not given Edwards that curious little Missionary chalice presented to him by General Revere. He wishes he had known Edwards earlier. The new man at Seton Hall may be more amiable. The scowl on his face in the photo is not a natural one. He may have been thinking of the anarchists when the picture was taken. They ruined a college and a library of 80,000 volumes, beat a Christian brother to death as well as a sister and several priests. Attempts were made to outrage cloistered nuns. The D— Fools of the greater part of the European and American press howl over the execution of Ferrer who was at the bottom of all this devilish work. All the Spaniards he meets feel bitterly the insults and injustice of the meetings and Demonstrations pro-Ferrer in France and Italy. Not more than 5 prisoners have been executed for participation in the Barcelona riots and attempts at Revolution.

(Wattson, Reverend Lewis Thomas) Paul James Francis, S.A.: Garrison, New York
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Tomorrow morning, the Vigil of All Saints, the Society of the Atonement is to be received into the Catholic Church by Monsignor Joseph H. Conroy, acting by authority of Archbishop (John Murphy) Farley. They made application to the Holy Father through the Apostolic Delegate to be received and to preserve their name and Institute, permitting them to join the Third Orders of St. Francis. On Oct. 7, they received an affirmative answer and Monsignor (Cornelius G.) O'Keefe, pastor of the Church of the Sacred Heart, Highland Falls, (New York) gave them preliminary instructions. Their two publications, The Lamp and Rose Leaves are to be continued. They shall no doubt lose a large part of their Anglican constituency, but hope to retrieve the loss on the Catholic side. He hopes to make the Lamp less controversial and more missionary in its character. Rose Leaves will follow more in the footsteps of the Ave Maria.
