Guendling, Father J(ohn) H.: Peru, (Indiana)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Guendling thanks Hudson for the $80. Many who have lost all refuse through self-respect to accept relief. The public Relief Committees complain that Catholics will not avail themselves of assistance. The big houses of Marshall Field, Montgomery Ward, and Sears and Roebuck have sent on carloads of their best stock. The Insurance Companies, Prudential and Metropolitan, make no collections and in case of death pay without the formal proofs. This morning he had the funeral of Anna Ginter the only Catholic who perished.

Seton, Archbishop Robert: Rome, (Italy)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He met a lady who knows Edwards. He wishes Edwards would give up all work and come to a more congenial climate. He is making notes of his early life and later life up to 1902. He wishes Edwards could send him his diaries. He wants so many dates. Many things of his will go to Memorial Hall after his death. He is disgusted with the vast majority of his countrymen and women; he describes them. If he were in America he would cast his first Democratic vote. There is some hope that the comics will kill (Theodore) Roosevelt with ridicule. He speaks of Fairbanks and Roosevelt in Rome. He has no ailment. He hopes they might meet in Europe this summer.

Daly, T(h)om(as): Germantown, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

When the books came they were entertaining Father (John F.) Fenlon, S.S., erstwhile curate at the Chicago Cathedral. Fenlon carried off to Washington two booklets which Hudson had given Daly before he left Notre Dame. The prospect of meeting Hudson is what really drew him to Notre Dame. Could Hudson give a place to a photograph of the Daly family in the Ave Maria? If Hudson has not already seen Katherine Tynan's lovely "Alleluia" in the Atlantic Monthly, he is to look for it.

Joens, Hazel A.: Davenport, Iowa
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She wishes Hudson could write to her mother Mrs. W(illia)m Joens, as she is grieving so much over her father's illness. She sends one dollar for a Mass to be said for her father. His mental condition is no better.

McG( ) P.: Yarmouth, N(ova) S(cotia)
 to J(ames) F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana

Edwards must excuse him for not writing and thanking him for the base-ball book that Edwards sent. It comes in handy as he is captain of their team.

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

There is nothing special in the Rhodius case; while there is talk of compromise nothing substantial has materialized. (Joseph) Emminger and his wife sail the 23 of the month for Germany. He is sorry Edwards is unable to write and hopes he will improve.

McCarthy, Daniel H.: Omaha, Neb(raska)
 to (James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

He was never so surprised as he was when he received the gold watch and Edwards' card. It will be his constant companion too. Edwards must come out to visit them in Omaha. He prays for Edwards every day at Mass and hopes he is better. The watch has made him very, very happy.

Daily, Henry A.N.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father John (W.) Cavanaugh: Notre Dame, Indiana

He asks Cavanaugh to give him the names of any survivors of the "absolution incident." Anything that will help Mr. Murray in his work will be gladly received. The original unifrom of Father (William) Corby, (C.S.C.) would be more acceptable to copy than the design they have.

Daily, H(enry) A.M.: Philadelphia, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father John (W.) Cavanaugh, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He encloses an article from the Philadelphia Record; they will send other articles. Mr. Murray, the sculptor would like an enlargement of the photo of Father (William) Corby, (C.S.C.) and a full length picture, too. General (St. Clair) Mulholland gave them a good description. Work on the statue will start this week. Mr. Hugh McCaffrey and others of the committee are doing splendid work. They have $3,000. In the treasury, they have spent $400 to $500 to date. (Note: found in papers of James F. Edwards).

Sadlier, Anna T.: (Montreal, Canada)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sadlier will send more manuscript during the week. She will prepare the article on Father Eudes as Hudson suggested. P.S. Did Hudson read (Maurice Francis) Egan's "Foreword" to the volumes of short stories? She did not think it very dignified. To say that the Catholic public of a generation ago were caught by a "Cross and shamrock" on the cover of a book, appeared to her an unworthy sneer. Such statements are not calculated to advance the Catholic cause. She would like to write an article to show that in the main they were not addicted to catch-penny literature.

Miller, Newman: Chicago, Illinois
 to Ja(me)s F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

They ask if Edwards ever feels the need of a more complete and up-to-date bibliography of economic material. He will do well to consider the special offer on the last page of the enclosed circular.

Shippen, Reverend Eugene R.: Detroit, Michigan
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Shippen thanks Hudson for his appreciation of his sermon on the Catholic Church as reported in the Detroit Free Press. Although it was intended for his fellow Protestants he is gratified that it gave satisfaction to this Catholic brethren. He has happily been saved from anti-Catholic prejudice which poisons so many Protestants. Would Hudson send him two or three copies of his reprint?

A(miet), W(erner): Solothurn, ( )
 to James F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

He thanks Edwards for the letter and is sorry that Edwards is not well. Edwards could have come to Switzerland with Joe Emminger. He will see Joe in Villingen Bavaria in May; he is looking forward to it with pleasure.

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

Peterson's case is so very peculiar that she doubts whether Hudson will believe her. She was born in Port of Spain, and was trained as a teacher. In 1903 she observed her classroom smeared with a yellow stuff. She discovered her assistant was using evil influences to get her out of the school. In April, 1904, a friend attacked her through jealousy and spirits were put to torture her. She was an Anglican. Doctors could not diagnose her case. She had no control over her actions and the nurses at the hospital thought her mad. In 1905 she recovered, in 1907 the same symptoms again. (Fred A.) Small was sent to treat her. He published her case and got many suggestions which helped her. She is much better but not completely healed as Small died on Dec. 28, 1909. She had promised to become a Catholic as soon as she felt better, and on Aug. 3, 1908, she kept her promise. She thanks Hudson for the relic and image. She still suffers from head pains. She has not worked since she came to Georgetown and her savings have almost been exhausted. She still has a small pension from home.

Sweeny, Frank: (New York, New York?)
 to J(ames F. Edwards: Notre Dame, Indiana)

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

O'Shea thanks Hudson for his good wishes toward The Catholic Standard and Times. They appreciate his approval of what they are trying to do in defense of the Holy Father. O'Shea trusts Hudson is finding on the Ave Maria easier sailing than the ordinary Catholic weekly newspaper.

Stuer, Father Charles L.: Mishawaka, Ind(iana)
 to (James F.) Edwards: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He asks if Edwards saw Halley's Comet. It is easier to locate the comet than to get a glance at those "Letters from Niles". Edwards must excuse him for bringing the matter up again but he has to redeem himself in Louvain. He wants to have a good long talk with Edwards remembering Father (Stanislaus) Fitte, (C.S.C.). He wrote for more copies of Father O'Brien's little book, "Politeness" — it is a gem.

Spearman, Frank H(amilton): Evanston, Ill(inois)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

They returned from Italy last November; they had a visit with Father (Matthew) Russell in Dublin. Father (John J.) Wynne (S.J.) in New York gave him letters to London, Paris, and Innsbruck. The trip was somewhat marred by his continued indisposition and in the Tyrol he lay ill for five or six weeks. On their return home his wife collapsed completely, as to her nerves. The two elder boys are giving good accounts of themselves in their positions. Frank Jr. attends the new Loyola Academy, and Arthur, 10, goes to private school. Brother Angelus ran in on him the other day. The first draft of the new book is almost done. He has two titles in mind: "The Pagan" and "The Ninth Commandment". He dreams of coming down to see Hudson and bringing with him, Mr. Granger, a clergyman who gave up his Anglican life to come into the Church. Mrs. Spearman has been quite ill all winter. He asks to be remembered to Father (John W.) Cavanaugh and Mother Pauline and Sister Rita.

Hannon, John: Isleworth, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hannon thanks Hudson for printing the "Tailor's Prayers". He enclosed the receipt in a letter of thanks to Father O'Neill. "Mac, the Mantilla, and the Misers", like "Duke and Drummer Boy" saw service only once in Ireland, in a much less finished form and under a different title. Hannon sees that Hudson is still begging for the Filipino and other missions. Could Hudson deduct a dollar from the next check, and buy two rosaries, bless them, and send them, and then apply the balance to some mission? Mary and he would be grateful. (He encloses a page from the) "Irish Monthly" for May with his "Footnote to Balzac" on the novel "Ursule Mirouet".
