Stockley, W(illiam) F.: Cork, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Does Hudson remember if Stockley sent him Father (George) Tyrell, (S.J.)'s letters? In those days he used to think the joking, the scoffs, were on the surface of unshaken Catholicity. It is untrue that he wrote soon "disillusioned" with the Church. P.S. He sent a paper on Father Russell to the Ave Maria.

Fraser, Mary Crawford: Winthrop, Wash(ington)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Fraser thanks Hudson for his appreciation of the "Golden Rose" and for Talbot Smith's review in the Ave Maria of Oct. 26. Her collaborator wrote the battle scenes. (J.I.) Stahlmann is young and at the beginning of his published career. "Golden Rose", though published 2 years ago in England, has just found a publisher here. She is glad that the "Pompeii" pleased Hudson. Anyone wishing to communicate with the Director could write to the (address given). Hudson's handwriting is so like (Francis) Marion (Crawford)'s. P.S. Her eldest boy was married on Oct. 15 to a girl whom he had brought into the Church.

Gilbert, Rosa (Mulholland): Blackrock, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Will Hudson send the Sept. 3 and 24, 1898, numbers of the Ave Maria which contain some chapters of her story, "Katherine of Desmond"? She has also lost "Orange-Green" which Hudson might be able to supply also. She needs Hudson's prayers having lost Father Russell.

1912 Nov.9
Riordan, Archbishop P(atrick) W(illiam): San Francisco, California
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Riordan is sure Hudson rejoices in the appointment of Bishop (Edward J.) Hanna. Until now Hanna was under a cloud. He is a wonderfully good man, learned, and full of apostolic zeal. Riordan will give him a free hand when he comes out to him. Riordan has been entertaining Cardinal (John Murphy) Farley and his suite of five this week and has never put in a harder week in many years.

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

Tiernan has been ill and will not be able to send Hudson a completed manuscript by the end of the year. The story is well under way. She wonders if Hudson received her letter sent in August, containing an account of a miraculous incident written by her aunt.

Fraser, Mary C(rawford): Spokane, Wash(ington)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Fraser has moved down to Spokane for the winter. She is enjoying the change very much. It is a pleasure to go to church again and to be near her children—her two boys and their wives.

Kent, Amelia: (London, England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Kent is grateful to Hudson for his letter and magazine. Her mother was so fond of the Ave Maria. Kent, her sister and niece, Marjorie are pleased with the serial. Her brother, Father (William Henry) Kent, (O.S.C.), was pleased with Hudson's letter and message.

1912 Nov.30
Metcalf, Father Theodore A.: Brookline, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Metcalf was all set for his trip West and fell ill. Metcalf seconds all that Father J. Talbot Smith says of (Mary Crawford) Fraser's novel, "Golden Rose". He is just about to read the latest volume of her "Reminiscences". Where is she now? Probably she would not remember him as Vice Rector of the American College in Rome 40 years ago. He encloses a copy of the verses "The Mother" by Elizabeth Sinclair Smith. He also encloses (no enclosure) a clipping from the "Boston Herald" which should prove useful in the question of baptism of Baptists. He adds his testimony to Hudson's vindication of Cha(rle)s B. Fairbanks as the undoubted author of "Aguecheek". He knew him well as a boy. He was a fascinating conversationalist, full of quiet humor. He trusts the next edition of "My Unknown Chum" will acknowledge the true author of its delightful pages. Hudson may use his information but he asks Hudson to hide his identity.
