Pam, Max: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Pam hopes after November 5 to come to Notre Dame. Pam asks Hudson to tell Father (John W.) Cavanaugh that he would like the meeting for the permanent organization of the Department of Journalism as suggested by Cavanaugh to rest until after November 5th. The fight for the President's reflection is a hard one, but Pam believes he will be re-elected.

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

If Hudson would have some copies of Newman's prayer for a happy death struck off for him Riordan would be obliged. It is impossible to get rid entirely of "middle men" in the altar wines distribution. He was sorry to read that the Temperance Convention was a small affair. He is sorry that the President, (William Howard) Taft, did not give a different decision in the case respecting the religious dress worn by teachers in the Indian School. Riordan has met Taft time and time again and even spent four weeks with him at Murray Bay, and he did give him credit for being a larger-minded man than he proves himself to be. Taft did not secure a sufficient number of votes in California to be on any ticket. They will have to choose between Roosevelt and Wilson. Riordan is glad to hear through Father Dan, how well Hudson is. He hopes to have the pleasure of going on next year for even a longer visit than he had this past summer.

Ireland, Archbishop John: St. Paul, (Minnesota)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Last Saturday (Charles Dewey) Hilles was in St. Paul and Ireland had a very satisfactory talk with him. He is fully alive to the importance of reaching out for the Catholic vote. Ireland told Hilles what Hudson has been doing. In the recent elections in Maine and Vermont, a vast number of copies of a Catholic Montreal paper, showing the bigotry of (Woodrow) Wilson, were put into circulation. Something of that kind will be tried over the whole country within the next few weeks. Lack of funds present a difficulty and the investigations now going on in Washington have scared off contributors. Ireland sends a copy of the "Catholic Bulletin". Hudson is to read the article on Monaghan's brochure.

Skinner, Henrietta Dana: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Skinner received the letter from Mr. Winter which Hudson's office sent. Mr. Skinner hopes once again to visit Notre Dame. They are sailing for home after 2 years of wanderings in foreign lands. She does not agree with the Ave Maria in its praise of "Marotz". She remains amazed, sorrowful and indignant at the book. Their 19 year old boy is trying his hand at literature. He has just published some short magazine stories. Hudson may have noticed his articles in "America" on Socialism.

Ireland, Archbishop John: St. Paul, (Minnesota)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ireland has Hudson's letter of Oct. 15th and agrees with what he says but does not believe it opportune to send it either to the President (William Howard) Taft or to (Charles Dewey) Hilles. It is too much to ask that the President make a trip westward. The decision of the Garb question, of course, is not satisfactory but there is no use in telling that to the President at the present time. He said all he could to Hilles on the subject and they shall only have to leave things to take their way.

Atteridge, A. Hilliard: Isleworth, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Atteridge sees in the Ave Maria a notice of Michael Field's "Poems of Adoration". Michael Field is a "nom-de-guerre" for two sisters—converts. This work is really the work of one of them who is slowly dying of cancer. He asks Hudson's prayers for an old friend—a German professor—who died three days ago at the age of 86. He was an agnostic most of his life, but was believing more and more as death came near.

Reynolds, Alfred Rothay: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Reynolds is glad Hudson is going to print his Christmas story. Reynolds is living in a Benedictine Abbey in order to have quiet for work. The American Benedictines spring from the Bavarian Abbey of Mettan. He is bringing out a book called, "My Russian Year", about the end of January and will send a copy to Hudson for review. There is a good deal about the Orthodox Church in it.

Neef, Frederick-Emil: (New York, New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He and Mrs. Neef thank Hudson for the note. His work has all but alienated him from his friends in the time it consumes. He is happy to have a little time at last. If Hudson comes to New York he is more than welcome at their home.
