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

Before he had time to thank Hudson for "Damien", Spearman was called to Metuchen, New Jersey, by the death of his brother-in-law.This morning's mail brought Hudson's copy of the "pilot".What a superb estimate of Kimberly. A letter from Father (Matthew)Russell speaks of a forthcoming notice in the may "Monthly".He mentions Hudson's tribute and has sent the book on to Hilaire Belloc.

Spalding, Archbishop J(ohn) L(ancaster): Peoria, (Illinois)
  to Father(Daniel E.)Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Two lady friends have published a hymn book which will do great good. It needs publicity. A copy will be sent to Hudson. The Life of Mother Hardy is having a very fine sale.

Guilday, Father Peter (K.): Louvain, Belgium
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Guilday takes the liberty of sending under a separate cover a short article suggested by Dr. Zwierlein's thesis here last June. Guilday was a student in the Faculty of Theology at Louvain from 1907 to March, 1910, and was ordained in July, 1909. In March, 1910, Archbishop Ryan called him back to Philadelphia for parish work. Monsignor Shahan obtained Ryan's consent to allow Guilday to occupy the post of instructor in History at Washington, (Catholic University of America) and as a result he was sent back to Louvain to complete his studies. He hopes to finish up by January, 1913, with a thesis on the authority of the venerable Bede as a historian. Then he will return home and take up his duties at Catholic University.

M(aes), Bishop C(amillus) P(aul): Covington, K(entuck)y
 to Father Daniel E.Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

As Hudson may study this question—Hudson might have kept Dr. Zenner's book. Maes indicated 2 very good books on the subject,"Die Erziehung zur keuscheit" by Father Michael Gotterrt, S.J.and Father Franz Krus, S.J., professors at Innsbruck, and an excellent protestant publication by F.W. Forster, "Sexualethik Sexual Padagogik".The theroies of Father Arthur Barry O'Neil are set forth with good grace after 20,000 miles of practice.

Curtis, Georgina Pell: Chicago, (Illinois)
  to Father (Daniel E.)Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Curtis sent off the last page proof to Herder a few days ago. She has given the book on Father Damien to her sister to read. The Who's Who will not be out until April 1. She wants Hudson to read the notice she wrote of Charles Warren Stoddard.

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

Tiernan is glad to have received the copy of Stevenson's letter. She congratulates Hudson on the new cover for the Ave Maria. Benziger in answer to her question is willing to publish a story of hers at present and asked to see the numbers of the Ave Maria containing it. Hudson may possibly prefer "The Light of the vision" to "The Wargrave Trust" for publication from the Ave Maria press. She rejected Benziger's plan to teach the Catholic masses to read by lending libraries of copyright books on which no royalties would be paid. The publishers were surprised and pained at her attitude. She wonders if Catholic authors will ever have a house like Burns and Oates in this country. If it were not for the Ave Maria and Hudson she would have long since have ceased to produce anything in the way of Catholic literature. Did Hudson ever receive a copy of the "Jubilee Book" of Belmont Abbey?

Hsieh, Francis Xavier: Shanghai, China
  to Father(Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The child was born in Shangai and baptized Elizabeth in the Church of the sacred Heart in Shanghai where Hsieh was baptized and married.He has mailed a photograph of himself with his wife and Elizabeth. It is edifying to see Hudson's remembrance of the Mission at wei Hai Wei under Father Wilfrid Hallam, (O.F.M.) and his friend Anthony and himself.Anthony is now working at Harbin— a town inhabited by the Russians. Anthony's mother and sister are fervent Catholics.There are 2 priests helping Hallam, one a Chinese priest, Peter Marcus In and the other is Canadian, Pere Eusebe Meunier. Hallam has secured a spacious building in the neighboring district of Che-San. Every Sunday Father Finn's bell and organ sound forth. Hsieh will remain in Shanghai if there is a suitable situation or he may accompany his mother to canton.

Spearman, Frank H(amilton): Tryon, North Carolina
  to Father(Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana )

Hudson's tribute to "Kimberly" has touched him. Hudson expressed better than he what he tried to do in presenting Alice and Robert Kimberly. Such assurances will offset the cold and blundering estimates of his work that are sure to follow. Mrs.Spearman and Arthur are with him for March. Mrs.Marman's book will go forward with the others at Easter.

Guiney, L(ouise) I(mogen): Falmouth, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Hudson knows or hears of anyone who wants researches done at the Bodleian or British Museum will he be so good as to refer them to her. Her cousin, Grace Guiney, is her right hand man. After she returns to Oxford in the middle of May she will be ready for the commission at 2s per hour. She hunted the York Breviary through for that hymn she asked about. It isn't there.

Shipley, Orby: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Shipley is sorry Hudson cannot publish the autobiographical material sent. Hudson perhaps will remember G(eorge) R. Woodward, an Anglican Clergyman poet whose work Hudson has reproduced in the Ave Maria. He lately sent Shipley the enclosed for a III Volume of Carmina Mariana. Last year Shipley made a gift of his collection of the Ave Marias to the Oratory Library. With failing sight and years he is unable to keep pace with his large reading matter.

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

While he had heard of Father Damien he had never known the details as they are so splendidly disclosed in Stevenson's open letter. Pam expects to come to Notre Dame some time in the early part of May. He told Father Cavanaugh he would deliver a lecture to the law students on some subject Professor Hoynes would indicate. Pam fears he will not be able at this time to deliver the lecture on Lincoln. His notes for that lecture are in New York.

Martin, Edward S(andford): New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Martin thanks Hudson for the extracts from the Ave Maria. Martin is more intersted in religion than politics, especially the development and destiny of Hudson's Church in this country.The Catholics are clannish and it is hard to know them. It would be easier if their education were less separate, especially in the later years of it. He is glad to see Catholic young men go to non-Catholic universities.
