Heuser, Father H(erman) J.: Overbrook, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Heuser is glad to have Hudson's endorsement of his attitude toward the military boy training methods. Heuser felt humiliated at the tought of knowing how clumsily he expressed himself in comment on Mr. Wade's letter. The Bishop of Salford responded to his request for information about the Boy's Brigade organization in England. He prints a paper in the December issue of "The Ecclesiastical Review" on "The Aims and Objects" of the Catholic Boys' Brigade, and he shall keep up the discussion. He has the Pustet Missal which Hudson commends. He may ask Hudson to publish a few sketches of impressions gleaned from among Christian artists.

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

Tiernan is happy to know the book will be out in time for Christmas. She asks for a few more copies of "The Coin of Sacrifice". A representative from the Ave Maria called on her and they had a pleasant talk. She fears he won't have much success. Their Catholics are few in number and are not a reading people.

C(hristitch), E(lisabeth O'Brien): Belgrade, Serbia
 to Father D(aniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Christitch and Annie (Christitch) are together in Belgrade, but Annie will leave soon for the old reason. As soon as peace is proclaimed Janie will come back to say good-bye before taking the final step. As for herself she is uncertain. Nikola is in St. John de Medna unhurt. (The picture is of a hospital group with Annie designated.)

Raupert, J(ohn) Godfrey: Weimar, Germany
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Raupert has been very busy lecturing, and probably will spend some weeks in the north of England. He had a splendid meeting at Cambridge some weeks ago. He wishes he could talk things over with Hudson, but there is that horrid money question. He was really disappointed that the Catholics in America showed so little inclination to support so important a cause. His book is doing very well, but his American publisher has turned out a failure. He has not had a line or penny from him since last April. He came to Weimar to spend Christmas with his wife. Her conversion is a great joy to him. Eric is experiencing great satisfaction in the religious life. He asks their good friend Father Jim to join them at Weimar after Christmas. There is a small Catholic congregation at Weimar and outside it all is cold and dead so far as religion is concerned. Father Lepicier has written to him several times and wants Raupert to join him in Rome as soon as possible. Raupert does not want to go without his wife. Washbourne's is anxious to re-publish his "Back to Rome". Raupert is thinking of preparing another book—title might be— "Impressions of Catholic Life and Things". What does Hudson think of it? He tells Father Jim that he ought to write a sequel entitling it "Father Jims's Penitent."

1911 Dec.18
Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan is delighted with the appearance of "The Light of the Vision." The editor of the "Catholic World" has never sent her one copy of her story, "Noel" which they issued in a booklet form. Many members of their Reading Circle are incredulous of the reality of the spiritistic manifestations which Father (Robert Hugh) Benson describes in his "Necromancers". In the new series she wants to include one of (John Godfrey) Raupert's books on spiritism. She asks Hudson to recommend one of Raupert's books and send it to her. She encloses an English Christmas card (not enclosed).

Lilly thanks Hudson for the kind mention of his recent article in the December Ave Maria.

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

She has heard nothing from Hudson on her request for information about (John Godfrey) Raupert's book. The books of the new series for the Reading Circle are to be distributed in 10 days.
