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

Tiernan has not received any acknowledgment of Hudson's receipt of the conclusion of "Flower of the Almond", and wonders if it reached him. She thanks him for sending the very flattering notice of "The Light of the Vision" from the Catholic Register. Her work does not suit the editors of the secular magazines and the few Catholic ones pay so poorly. The Ave Maria is an exception. Hudson's taking of "The Light of the Vision" was such a help. Disturbances in Mexico have prevented her obtaining money on her investments.

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

It was kind of Hudson to think of the plan to be conceived for her next serial, but such syndicating of matter is not possible with our Catholic editors. She is quite satisfied that he will take another serial next year and will start on it immediately. She would be grateful for the $300 which Hudson suggests as an advance. If he could make it $500 she would be more than thankful. She could not write like Pierre de Coulevain, (Helene Favre de Coulevain), nor hope for her vogue. Tiernan has not had her opportunities of environment and association. She has been a prisoner all her life of narrow means and imperative duties. She is glad he liked the story.

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

Brother Broughton deserves to be roasted in Hudson's own inimitable way for the combined benefit of the Ave Maria readers in Atlantic City and elsewhere. Christianity for Brother is what is generally known over in England as Dissent. Hannon used to be puzzled with Frank T. Bullen's use of the word "Christian". If Hudson cares to write about the enclosed (no enclosure) he might remember that not only the Catholic hospital of SS. John and Elizabeth are under the nuns, but also the national hospital in London, the Italian and the French. He must show Hudson a story the moment one comes into his head. (Mary T.) Waggaman is excellent as usual in "The Secret of Pocomoke".

Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father F(rancis) B(rowning) D.: Salisbury Plain, (England)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

As Senior Chaplain of all Catholic troops in this district and in particular at Tidworth he has the job of seeking funds to build a church. The other three denominations have finished theirs. He has 1025 pounds towards the necessary 1565 and must raise the balance by June 13 when the building will be completed. He appeals for help.

Metcalf, Father Theodore A.: Brookline, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Metcalf spent Holy Week with his old boyhood friend, Bishop H(arkins) of Providence, R.I. The new Bishop Dowling of the new see of Des Moines is to be consecrated in Providence this Thursday. Metcalf is sending a little plaster statuette by Anna Wollett, daughter of Sidney Wollett which is entitled "The Boston Boy." Wollett made them to sell in aid of Boston College. Metcalf also encloses some verses by a young lad of 18—Frederick W. Wennerberg. He calls Hudson's attention to Elizabeth Sinclair Smith's poem, "The Mother" which appeared in last week's London Tablet. He thanks Hudson for his repeated invitations to visit Notre Dame, and hopes to get there some time this year.

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

Tiernan thanks Hudson for the kind notices of "The Light of the Vision" which he sent. She was pleased with that from the Chicago Inter-Ocean and The Republic's notice was also very kind. Tiernan hopes she did not misunderstand Hudson's letter of the 8th in which he agreed to take a serial for next year and make an advance now. She will be grateful for a check at his earliest convenience.
