Peterson, Ethel Arica: Georgetown, B(ritish) G(uiana)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Peterson thanks Hudson for his consolation and prayers. Since last November she has asked the souls in Purgatory to deliver her from the tortures of spirits. She will show Hudson's letter to her confessor, Father Wilson, as he does not credit what she says. He told her to see Bishop Galton, but he will think her mad. Father Darby credited a part when she was suffering and became very ill. He is now away from the parish. She has always led a moral and pure life. Her parents died when she was 2 years old and she has only a few cousins. Professor Elmer A. Knowles sent her her first lecture and Formula which she began on May 19. She has heard many threats because she went to America for help. (Fred A.) Small gave her some East Indian blessed incense. It did some good. At times she even forgets the English language.

Kennedy, Bishop Thomas F(rancis): Rome, (Italy)

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

Vaughan is sorry that Hudson found his verses "too esoteric", but thanks him for his review of "Purpose of the Papacy". He sends more verse. P.S. Alice Vaughan is his brother Frank's youngest child, still at home. She gets her friends to write odds and ends in her autographic book. Perhaps "How to be Happy" is not up to Hudson's literary standard.

Burton, Father Edwin: Ware, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Burton's friend, John Hannon, has suggested that he should forward to Hudson the paper which he included in a privately printed volume of essays. P.S. If Hudson should use it he could let him have the block for the illustration.

Hsieh, Francis X(avier): Wei Hai Wei, North China
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hsieh thanks Hudson for the gifts sent to his wife. He is chief clerk in the Post Office here and the Postmaster is also head of the firm of D. Clark & Co. Maria Teresa (Hsieh), his wife, is very virtuous and submissive. She is now studying English. He has not been able to give her regular instructions in their Faith. His parents are all at Shanghai. His mother's health does not agree with the Shantung climate and very likely he will have to seek a job somewhere, in Southern China, where they could live together. He thanks Father Finn for his bell to the St. Joseph's Mission at Wei Hai Wei, received June 19.

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

Spalding has just returned from a visit with his sister and relatives. When will Hudson accept his invitation to visit him in his new home?
