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

Raupert has been on a visit to Philadelphia and here in New York busy with psychical matters, Palladino, Carrington. He thanks Hudson for sending Dr. Williams' book and the Ave Maria containing the reference to Raupert's work. Williams' mind and his head have lost their cunning. His quotations are useful and will help Hudson to prepare his readers for that case of possession. There are two clear cases here and people are constantly writing to him about others. Raupert's book is doing very well. He is delighted with the reviews in the Ecclesiastical Review. He called on Father (Herman J.) Heuser and Father (Francis P.) Siegfried. Raupert had a long talk with Archbishop (Patrick John) Ryan who sees matters from a somewhat different point of view now and the Archbishop of New York sent his blessings a few days ago. Raupert drew money from his emergency savings and a priest provided the rest for the publication of the book. Raupert and Father (Luke F.) Sharkey felt that if Hudson could not arouse anyone to aid them, it was time to awake from his dream. Raupert is devoting the remainder of his life to secure for the book an extensive circulation. He wrote to (Bellamy) Storer and he could give no aid because he had pledged $10,000 to that moribund Catholic University (of America)! After a year's endeavor in this country Raupert's work terminates in broken health and empty pockets. He had a letter from Professor Lepicier a few days ago asking him to return to Rome. Raupert has gathered valuable information from (Eusefia) Palladino and Carrington and James. The attempt to construct Christianity in spiritistic lines will probably be the controversy of their time. Raupert asks Hudson to send copies of the Ave Maria containing the Luxemburg case to some friends. Raupert is paying a visit to St. John's Seminary to answer questions of the students. (P.S.) He hopes Benson will come to Notre Dame. The Archbishop of Bostan (William H. O'Connell) has offered Raupert the editorship of the Pilot. Raupert declined although not finally. It is to be discussed again in 3 months.

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

O'Kennedy could not make the paper on Job one word shorter. P.S. The "Notes and Remarks" are the backbone of each issue and while they "are firm and true" they are full of human consideration and heavenly charity.

McCarthy, Laura Gertrude:
St. Mary's College Notre Dame, Indiana
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She wants to thank Edwards a thousand times for the Egyptian beads. The beads are odd and different and everyone is crazy about them. They had their grand feast and she would have given anything if her mother could have been there. They had a perfectly grand time.

Claypool, John W.: Indianapolis, Ind(iana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

He received Edwards' letter and summons served on Edwards and the University. By this time Edwards has been served with another summons filed by Helena Behnke and Christian Rathsam. He encloses a general denial for Edwards to sign, to protect his interests. He can promise nothing regarding the jewelry, but will take it up with the Court if he is appointed executor. (Note: Four summons are attached.)

Spalding, James Field: Cambridge, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spalding has a few friends among the clergy who, like Hudson, invoke God's peace for the dead. It will be six years this week since their son was taken away. Spalding was at St. Mary's when the news reached him. Spalding will not be at Notre Dame this year and there will be no explanation, he knows little himself. He is well, and still "in the harness."

(Foley), Bird (M.): Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

It seemed to good to have a few lines from Edwards again; when spring comes, he will be perfectly well again. She can hardly realize Easter is not far off. She saw "Herod" by Stephen Phillips, played by William Faversham; it would please Edwards. The small photo looks more like her than any other.

D( ), Q.E.: N(ew) Y(ork), (New York)
Lemonnier LibraryNotre Dame, Ind(iana)

This new book by Myrtle Reed, "Old Rose and Silver" is a charming and altogether wholesome love story full of delicate touches of fancy and humor. It is even more interesting that "Lavender and Old Lace."

Masten, V.M.: Elmira, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

"The Crime Problem" circulates freely in educational institutions treating a vital question in a manner to fix the attention of mentor and student. He will allow Edwards a usual discount on his work.

Spalding, Bishop J(ohn) L(ancaster): Peoria, Ill(inois)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spalding thanks Hudson for the clipping from the Ave Maria on (Max) Pam's lecture. When the Catholic Publication Society failed, some of Spalding's works passed into the hands of Father Maher's Christian Press Association which proceeded to bury them. He would like to get some active firm to take hold of them. McClurg would not take them. If his health were completely restored he would probably know what to do. He seeks Hudson's counsel and hopes he may look forward to Hudson's visit in a short time.

Atteridge, A. Hilliard: Isleworth, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Atteridge hopes Hudson will be able to publish this article right away. It is an appeal for help in a big effort for the Church. Father (Philip) Fletcher has asked him to get prayers in America. If Atteridge survives him he will send the Ave Maria things about him that cannot be printed while he lives. He is a saint, but not at all like the conventional saint. He had 10,000 pounds of his own when he was converted and ordained. He gave it all away. The bishops have just given him an assistant and his work will go on.

Woodworth, W(illia)m M(cMichael): Cambridge, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Woodworth asks Hudson to forgive him for this tardy reply to Hudson's of months ago regarding the crucifix and volumes of the Ave Maria. (Sara Ada) Makee wants Hudson to have the cross but wants to sell the Ave Maria volumes. The cross was offered to Hudson at the suggestion of Theo(dore) Dwight, who brought it from Obernamagau and gave it to Charles (Warren) Stoddard. Makee does not give things away when there is at least 30 in sight. The (Crucifix) measures about 2X3 feet. Makee could have had thousands for Stoddard's library if she would wait a while and the library would have been kept intact. She threw it to the dogs for $1200. She knows as much about a book as she does about a locomotive.

Makee, Sara A(da): Dresden, Germany
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Makee is the sister of the late C(harles) W(arren) Stoddard. There never lived a dearer brother, a sweeter, truer nature. While on her hurried trip to America last year she had not time to write, since her return she has not done well. While in Cambridge last year she had a letter from Theo(dore) Dwight asking her to inquire if Hudson would like to have the crucifix of her brother. Mrs. Dwight had given it to him. (William) Woodworth informs her that Hudson would like to have it and he will send it to him. Will Hudson tell her if all her brother's books published at Notre Dame belong to the college.

Claypool, John W.: Indianapolis, Ind(iana)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Edwards' letter came all o.k. and will do as they are. He received a letter from Werner Amiet. Amiet says they are in ten feet of snow; he would be back if his sister were well. They are getting some of the issues made up: then they will be viewed out of town and tried, if not compromised.

H(udson, C.S.C.) Father D(aniel)E.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)
 to (James F. Edwards): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

It would be too bad to have Edwards' record omitted from the Catholic Who's Who. (Note: Attached is a list of contemplated names, with Edwards' marked and also a note from the editor asking Father Hudson to help him collect the date.)

(Amiet), Werner: Solothurn, ( )
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

He is sorry to learn that Edwards' health is not any better. George (Rhodius) is better off now than he has been since 1907; he had to suffer so much. He wishes Edwards could come to Europe, an ocean trip would do him good.

Encarnacion, V( ) Singson: Manila, (Philippine Islands)
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Knowing Hudson's interest in the Philippines, Encarnacion sends a copy of the resolution passed by the Partido Nacional Progresista in its General Convention at Manila (no enclosure). The Progresista Party is the oldest and best organized political party in the Philippines, dating back to 1901. The granting of autonomy in the administration of public affairs, the establishment of the Philippine Assembly, as well as the sending of Filipino students to the United States are in part due to its suggestions and efforts.

Richards, S.J., Father Jos(eph) Havens: New York, (New York)
 to R(ichard) H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

Richards will be glad to do anything to contribute to so interesting and edifying an article as Clarke's is sure to be. At Georgetown all the works of Venerable Bede are in the library in folio, in Latin. Father (H.J.) Shandelle had added many early English works, chiefly Charters, etc. to the Riggs Library. Very likely the translation Clarke desires is among them. Next week he will drop in at St. Francis Xavier to see what they have. He asks why the Christian natives have retained the old pagan names of the week, perhaps the ferii is too tame.

His sweet birthday greeting was forwarded to her in New York where she has been for five weeks. Had she been home, she would have asked him to dinner. She will be coming home in a week or ten days. She hopes Edwards' health is improved; she asks remembrance to Father Hudson.

 to J(ames) F. Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They have an accumlation of duties that takes up all their time, but they speak of Edwards often and hope that his health continues to improve and that they may have the pleasure of seeing Edwards soon. James had his toe amputated. They await the dawn of spring.

 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has been laid up with the grippe and has not been able to thank Edwards for the grand treat. The proofs for her picture are not good. She ran into Paul Rush and his mother and father. This is the first time she has been in the infirmary.
