Cahensly, Peter Paul: New York, (New York)
 to Archbishop John M. Farley: New York, (New York)

When Farley received Cahensly on October 3, he expressed the wish that Cahensly furnish an account regarding Catholic immigrants and submit plans to better any existing evil conditions. Cahensly sends the attached memorandum. Included are immigration figures for the years 1901-1910. Also a three page typed memorandum "Establishment of an International Bureau for the Registry of Foreign Speaking Priests." In it Cahensly suggests the establishment of an international bureau where foreign speaking priests without a pastorate or who desire a change may register and where bishops may apply when in need of priests speaking foreign languages. Better facilities than now in existence must be provided to improve communications between the native countries of the immigrants and the U.S. Immigrant Homes for each nationality, with a priest as director should be erected in all ports of entry. Cahensly proposes establishment of a protective agency for a small nationality of Austria, for instance the Bohemians indicating where priests can be found. Priests of other nationalities in this country should be admonished by Farley to found St. Raphael's societies. With these societies should be connected offices, which the settlers as well as the newly arrived immigrants may consult.

Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine)Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The summer has not treated her well, and she has done very little work. Her bank account is low and perhaps Hudson would like a serial for next year. $500 would be a godsend. Benzigers were anxious to get "The Wargrave Trust" after it was too late.

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

Washbourne's have a crowded list and Hannon has been urged by an American friend to send "Grave and Gay" to Herder. The last three weeks have sung lullaby to his winter rheumatics. The "New Ireland Review" has a paper of his in the Oct. Number. Has the cashier overlooked "A Folk Tale and a Fact" and "St. Fannan's Well"? He is to deduct his sister's foreign mission dollar.

Fraser, Mary Crawford: Winthrop, Wash(ington)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Fraser thanks Hudson for the announcement of her book. A slight misunderstanding between the American and English publishers will delay its appearance until the end of the month. She is writing to Dodd Mead to send a copy as soon as one is ready. They at last have managed to build a church. Father (Joseph) Luyten promised to come once a month now, and he thinks it will not be long before they get a resident priest. Hudson's appeal in the Ave Maria has brought them many books and papers.

Fackenthal, Frank D.: New York, (New York)
 to Richard H(enry) Clarke: New York, (New York)

Fackenthal acknowledges Clarke's letter addressed to President (Nicholas Murray) Butler, who is still abroad. He is taking the liberty of handing Clarke's letter to Professor Harold Jacoby, Rutherford Professor of Astronomy at Columbia University and head of the Department.

Jacoby, Harold: (New York, New York)
 to R(ichard) H(enry) Clarke: (New York, New York)

Jacoby read with interest Clarke's letter referred to him by the university secretary in the absence of President (Nicholas Murray) Butler. The astronomical department will be glad to accept one of Clarke's reproductions, if he would donate it; but there are no funds available for purchasing it.

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

All who knew Sister (M.) Rita, (C.S.C.) must be thankful for the many tributes which Hudson has given in the Ave Maria. Spalding is surprised at the note last week on (Ralph Waldo) Emerson and particularly in connection with Bishop (John Lancaster) Spalding's opinion of him. It isn't so much that Hudson calls Goldwin Smith's estimate "just" and "candid", but that it is claimed that Bishop Spalding was never an admirer of Emerson, whereas the contrary is evident from his words to Senator Hoar in 1903.

Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan will send by the end of December the story he desires on a payment of $500 on account. Since Hudson cannot use her Christmas story she would like to send it to Father (Thomas) Burke, editor of the "Catholic World". The $50 paid for it can be put on the account of the new story, but not deducted from the $500. If he wants to get rid of "The Wargrave Trust" she thinks Benziger would be willing to take it off his hands.

Wills, A( ) W.: Nashville, Tenn(essee)
 to (Ira B.) Dutton: (Molokai, Hawaiian Islands) Copy for Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.):

Wills attaches a clipping from yesterday's Nashville paper as a reminder of war times. Does Dutton recall the incident? Litle vestige of the war is left in Nashville. His daughter, Mrs. Rutland, has a little daughter. Copy of the attached clipping: "Accused of complicity in the Assassination of (Abraham) Lincoln", told by Michael McDermott. McDermott and Hugh Bradley were arrested by Colonel Ira B. Dutton of the Forty-eighth Wisconsin Regiment.

Dutton, Ira B., Joseph: Kalawao, Molokai

Dutton found the letter from Wills among some memoranda. Some of the incidents may be counted as war stories of the amateur fisherman order. Dutton was in the Thirteenth Wisconsin. Neither McDermott nor Bradley were enlisted men. They were citizens from the North and Dutton had employed them as carpenters. He had a large force of carpenters employed in rebuilding a good part of Decatur after General Hood's raid into middle Tennessee. Their duty there was holding the line of the Tennessee River from Decatur, about 100 miles towards Chattanooga, counting the "squirms" of the river, fully 150 miles, to Caperton's Ferry near Bridgeport.
