Smith, Father J(ohn) T(albot): (Dobbs) Ferry, (New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Smith is living out of doors for the summer and is slowly getting back to health. There are five left in his family now where there were ten. His sister, the youngest, chats about their mother. One of the pleasant memories of his mother's life was the regular visit of Brother Jarlath on business for the "Ave Maria." Smith has heard nothing but praises about Brother Jarlath. Hudson is to picture Smith discussing ways and means for the uplift with the daughter of Robert Ingersoll, Mrs. Walston Brown. Father Carroll's pictures of village life in Ireland ought to be duplicated in a series. Smith's young friend Clement Gleason accepted "Billy Boy" with reverence and listened to the account of the venerable man in Indiana who sent him the book. He made his first communion a short time ago. Father (Thomas) McMillan, the Paulist, arrived home yesterday from a pilgrimage of nearly two years around America. He told Smith a story which ought to be printed in the "Ave Maria." the conversion of Henry E. Abbey, famous impresario in opera, five years ago. The unfortunate ex-Paulist, author of "Letters of a Modernist to Pius X," has just published a novel called "The Priest." He is now a Unitarian, Smith believes. Smith has just been invited to complete Lingard's history of England. Cardinal Farley has become the patron of a Catholic theater to be opened in New York under the direction of Eliza O'Brien Lummis. Smith is going to meet her and the Lingard people soon on these points.

Harty, Archbishop J(eremiah) J.: Baguio, (Philippine Islands)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Harty thanks Hudson for the Ave Maria containing the article on the Y(oung) M(en's) C(hristian) A(ssociation). The movement in the Philippines has had as its sponsors the Governor General and prominent officials. They now say they did not know the real character of it. The Ave Maria is like a missionary.

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

G(ilbert) K. Chesterton is always worth reading so Hannon makes no apology for sending his Saturday "Daily News". It seems to be less anti-Catholic since its amalgamation with the "Morning Leader." Hannon thanks Hudson for the gentle tap which Brother Broughton brought on himself by his curious vaunts over here. He has found in Herman Merivale's scanty reliques a little piece called, "An Elegy on a Pussy Cat", which he is going to edit and send to Hudson. Thank God Merivale never went completely mad again.

O'Delany, M. Barry: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Delany is glad the contributions were suitable. In the future she would prefer to be paid for each manuscript as it appears. She requests this because she is living entirely by her pen. She has just received the weekly issue for June with "The Fountaine". In this issue on page 821 she sees an allusion to (Louis) Pasteur and it reminds her that Pasteur once said to a friend of hers that because he was learned he had the faith of a Breton peasant but that if he were more learned he would have the faith of a peasantess.

Reynolds, A(lfred) Rothay: Berlin, (Germany)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Reynolds sends a Christmas story based on incidents he heard while travelling in Poland. If Hudson is unable to decide whether he can use the story he can reach Reynolds in London. He is leaving Berlin at the end of July.
