(Egan), M(aurice Francis): Copenhagen, (Denmark)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Egan has finished Hudson's Christmas story and will send it off tomorrow. The diplomatic feeling is against Italy and the attitude of the Holy Father is much approved of. "A Light from Heaven" will fill about space for 500 words. P.S. Father Morrissey has written Egan a letter which brought tears to his eyes. Carmel will be married on December 2 to Gabriel Ambrose O'Reilly, a great friend of Archbishops Harty and Ireland, and a devout Catholic.

(Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father Francis Browning D.) John Ayscough: Salisbury Plain, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ayscough thanks Hudson for the 15 shillings. He sends this paper on St. Nicholas with his reply. There is a charming review of "Hurdcott" in the current "Month". The non-Catholics attack him for what they call "his foolish bigotry". What he tries to do is show the heart of the Catholic faith. The "Standard's" critic called "Hurdcott" a failure. He has had countless letters, however, saying that of all his women characters Hurdcott is the most perfect and the most pathetic.

Agius, O.S.B., Archbishop A. (Ambrose): Manila, (Philippine Islands)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

His work in the Philippines has come to an end and he has received orders to proceed to Rome to get his new appointment which is yet unknown. He thanks Hudson for sending the Ave Maria regularly, and for all his help. He is leaving things in good shape. He needs only good missionaries and some money. He will be in Rome in February, 1912.

(Hedley, O.S.B.), Bishop J(ohn) C(uthbert): Cardiff, (Wales)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hedley is consoled by Hudson's appreciation of his Pastoral. The Catholic Truth Society was to issue it as a brochure, but he is just finishing a sequel to it, and they are waiting for it. He will send Hudson a copy.

Leen, Father William: Walker, Iowa
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Leen wrote Hudson last May relative to some articles on the Eastern Orthodox Church which appeared in the "Ecclesiastical Review". The articles have been translated into Russian and are appearing in the "Katholiski List"—a review published at Zargreb, Croatia. At the time Hudson agreed to change the title of Leen's article for the Ave Maria from "Thoughts on the Prussian Kulturkampf" to "Forty Years of Catholicity in Germany". Leen visited Germany this year and the Kulturkampf is by no means dead, but the Kaiser is favorably disposed to Catholics. As long as Socialism endangers the Empire another struggle will be avoided.

Riordan, Archbishop P(atrick) W(illiam): San Francisco, California
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Riordan wants more information about Bishop (Dennis Joseph) Dougherty of the Philippines. What has come from Hudson is very satisfactory. Riordan is afraid he shall lose his auxiliary Bishop, (Denis Joseph) O'Connell who very probably will be appointed to the vacant See of Richmond. His name is already on the Terna of Priests of the Diocese and was probably placed there at the meeting of the Bishops of the Province. Many years ago, O'Connell was on the point of being selected as Bishop, when Propaganda begged him not to accept. If Riordan gets the right men to put on the list he will ask for a Coadju tor. It will require and good, strong, energetic man here to carry on the work, especially the work of the Seminary. He has concluded that Dougherty would be about the best man for this place. Riordan read Hudson's note on the appointment of the new Cardinals and agrees with him in his remarks about their friend of St. Paul (Archbishop John Ireland). He was the one man of the country who above all others, merited the appointment. Riordan found it impossible to go East this fall. O'Connell went in his place to the Jubilee activities in Baltimore, and he is now in Rome. Riordan will not be able to leave until after Easter and will visit Notre Dame.
