University of Notre Dame


(1910) (Jul. )
Spearman, Frank H(amilton): Evanston, Illinois
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spearman is saddened at hearing of Sister (M.) Rita's (C.S.C.) death. She was one of the few he hoped would live to see the long delayed coming of the new book. Many have gone since its inception. Father (Henry J.) Dumbach, (S.J.) died just after his home coming last fall, and Robert Johnson, the prototype of Robert Kimball on the verge of Catholicity, has died this year.

Pam, Max: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Pam derives much pleasure from the recollections of his visits with Hudson. They are too infrequent.

Lindsey, Ben(jamin) B.: Denver, Colo(rado)

S(pearman), F(rank) H(amilton): Evanston, Illinois
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spearman could not find a day to get away with Mr. Granger to see Hudson. The finish of the first draft of the book held him. The last of the manuscript went to Mr. Brownell on June 30. On July 5, he was called near New York by the critical illness of his sister. His book has been accepted and will appear in February through Scribner. He had hoped to have it ready for the fall. He is well and his wife is improving, and Mr. Brownell's wife is improving, but he has been disappointed so often that he is almost afraid to hope.

Churchill, H(arriet) B.: St. Germain-en-Laye, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Churchill got Parisian "grip" and came here to recuperate. Churchill notices that the Ave Maria has had much to say about the late King of England (Edward VII). He had no religion and refused Communion at the Coronation. His talent was for government, diplomacy and society. Churchill had occasion to lay before him the present condition of the chapel in the Church at St. Germain which encloses all that is left of James II. He refused to do anything about it. It is a time of stress for the French clergy. France is no longer a Catholic country.

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

Spalding is sorry to hear of Sister (M.) Rita's (C.S.C.) death. He has given up the expectation of ever seeing any of them at St. Mary's and Notre Dame. What Hudson says of those "four operations in five weeks" carries many gloomy suggestions.
