Haultain, Arnold: Toronto, (Canada)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Some time before his death Goldwin Smith appointed Haultain his sole literary executor, and put him in possession of all his writings and manuscript. Haultain was his private secretary for more than 17 years. Haultain thinks there ought to be published a selection from the many letters he wrote to eminent persons. He would be obliged to Hudson if he would let him have any letters from Smith that he may have preserved. (He encloses a circular of the book) "The Reminiscences of Goldwin Smith" to be published in November.

Gasquet, (O.S.B.), Father F(rancis) A(idan): London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Gasquet is sorry to hear of Sister Rita's death. He met with an accident in Rome which left him rather incapacitated for some months, and had to lay aside any plans for visiting America. He wanted to go on a lecture tour to get funds for the Vulgate work. This has taken him away from strict historical work and if he cannot induce the Pope to put someone else at the head of the Vulgate Commission he doubts if he shall be able to write any more.

Cummings, Frances: Nantucket, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding was here this summer and he told her to write and ask Hudson to tell her something about Jeanne D'Arc. She is 9 years old. She reads the stories in the Ave Maria on the "Children's Page". She lives in Fall River.

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She encloses a copy of Murphy's statement and the check for $24. She is reveling in "Sandy Joe" by Waggaman. Dorsey wrote one paragraph about the (U.S.S.) Maine several weeks ago, suggesting that the delay in raising her was due to the fear of discovering that she blew up from an internal explosion rather than external. Her nephew-in-law, Captain Bennett, prepared for the Court the official sketch of the ship. Who was guilty is an open question. She does not think any one believes that the Spanish Government gave or endorsed such an order. Many believe that irresponsible Cubans did it. Others say the irreconcilables of Weyler did it. A third theory says an American editor planned an explosion which should not have sunk or killed. She wishes Hudson could get Father (John P.) Chadwick, chaplain of the Maine to write an account of it. Father (Hugh) Benson has Protestant aggressiveness with Catholic faith. Can Hudson get his invaluable inside facts about Spain into the secular press?

O'Sullivan, Bishop J(eremiah): Ch(icago?), Ill(inois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Sullivan found a few letters from Corby. In the enclosed he found Hudson's name and concluded to send it to him.

1897 Apr. 5
Corby, C.S.C., Father W(illiam): Notre Dame, Indiana
 to Bishop J(eremiah) O'Sullivan: (Mobile, Alabama)

Corby received O'Sullivan's two letters relative to those men who propose to sell South Chicago property for them. Corby is in good health again. He told Father Hudson that he took 22 pills in one day. It would be good to stop a day or two with O'Sullivan for a change and a rest.

Cavanaugh, C.S.C., Father John (W.): Notre Dame, Indiana
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

The letter is a (Father William) Corby, (C.S.C.) classic. "Had they no more pills?" Cavanaugh hopes he will not destroy the letter and let it survive with Hudson's own.

E(gan), M(aurice) F(rancis): Copenhagen, (Denmark)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Egan is laid up as usual at this season. The article on Cardinal Pole was good. Egan would like to do an article on the "Sillon" encyclical; it is admirable from the diplomatic and every other point of view. Egan has finished his first lecture on "The Canticle of Canticles." He is afraid Haupt would approve of his view.

1910 (Sep. 27?)
(Dutton, Ira B.): (Molokai, Hawaiian Islands)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson wrote it himself, didn't he? "Let us not Force the School Question" is good from end to end as John Harper used to say. It will do lots of good.

Conrardy, Father L(ambert) L.: Sheklung, China
 to Brother (Ira B.) Dutton: (Molokai, Hawaiian Islands)

Canrardy is well again and good for ten more years. The Picpus (Fathers) gave up the idea to take lepers at their charge. The Superior is not willing to unless it would be something like Molokai. In Belgium two Picpus brothers are always collecting for the Lepers, but they don't have a leper under their care. Conrardy has threatened to denounce them. The Belgian people believe that the Molokai lepers are depending on them for everything. When he wrote to Father Damien, their superior, he said they had decided not to go to China. They were collecting for the Hawaiian lepers, and those of the Marquise Islands. On Molokai they have no lepers in their charge and the two priests there are supported by the Association for the Propagation. When he wrote to the Bishop of Syracuse to get permission to collect the Bishop announced that the Sisters of St. Francis were collecting for the Hawaiian lepers. Neither of these have lepers who can be called theirs, but take care of the lepers of the Board of Health of the Hawaiian territory. (Dutton notes here that he) loaned pages 3,4,5, and 6 to Mr. Jackson. Is Dutton still living in his small cottage? Does he still make his rounds twice a day? All Conrardy's time is taken taking care of the lepers materially and physically, in learning Chinese and building dams and piers, planting trees. He hopes to plant 20,000 cottonseed trees. China is not a civilized country, and Japan is only civilized in parts.


1910 Jun. 30
Conrardy, Father L(ambert L.): (Shcklung, China)
 to Brother (Ira B.) Dutton: (Molokai, Hawaiian Islands)

When Conrardy left Honolulu for China in 1896, an article was published in some San Francisco newspapers which reflected on (R.W.) Meyer. The article was signed as coming from Conrardy. In Honolulu a reporter for the Examiner who did not like Meyer, wanted to publish an article. He waited until Conrardy went to publish his remarks and included what he had to say about Meyer. When Conrardy passed through Honolulu he visited Mr. Scharr(?), the superintendent of Queens Hospital who showed himself very cold. An article was published in the Examiner in April, 1896, under Conrardy's name but he had nothing against Meyer. Conrardy guesses Father Wendelin (Moellers, SS.CC.) his friend, did not succeed in bringing him to be a Catholic before he died.

Mabie, Hamilton W(right): Summit, New Jersey
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He found Hudson's note and the memorial cards of Sister (M.) Rita, (C.S.C.) on his return from Europe. Hudson no doubt has received the letter he wrote the day he heard of Sister Rita's death. Hudson knows what her friendship meant to him. Mabie sends Hudson an editorial from "The Outlook" in which he refers to her. Notre Dame has always been very hospitable to him.
