University of Notre Dame


1913 Feb. 3
Dutton, (Ira B.) Joseph: (Molokai, Hawaii)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dutton has passed Hudson's request to Mother Marianne, adding some of his own—to remember his god-mother, Mrs. Iorantha Semmes, now 84 years old, the soul of her daughter recently deceased, and M(other) Agnes, Sisters of Mercy—Janesville. Dutton has not paid much attention to personal items in the papers or magazines; avoiding overloading the conscience with the errors of others. The loyalty of old time friends is something wonderful. Numerous cable messages are coming to Honolulu—chiefly from Wisconsin, Tennessee and New York inquiring about death notices, whether true or not. One was from a veteran of the Mexican and Civil Wars, a general from Tennessee, 90 in September. He has a pile of letters on the desk for tonight.

Maes, Bishop Camillus P(aul): Covington, K(entuck)y
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Enclosed the incident which Hudson is to destroy when read, it gives the actual facts which is better than dreaded doubt. This or next summer will be the time for a Eucharistic Conference; Notre Dame is the ideal place. That incident and the fact that Father (Andrew) Morrissey did not even answer his request to come to see him at the University when at Holy Cross College, Washington, made Maes feel that they would not be overwelcome at the University. Only a very hearty invitation could be considered now.

1913 Feb. 6
Bradford, Gamaliel, Jr.: Wellesley Hills, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Bradford thanks Hudson for printing the note. He hopes other Catholic papers will copy. He does not like to be judged by careless expressions, but it takes a man some time to learn how far a hasty pen will carry.

1913 Feb. 8
Gilbert, Rosa (Mulholland): Blackrock, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Gilbert is sorry Hudson has had an illness. Father Russell often urged her to write prayers. She has been banned as a pagan writer by a reviewer in the New York paper "America." Russell told her, on his death bed that she must not grieve about it. He himself had been attacked by the same pen. She cannot think that Hudson would see cause to condemn or disapporve of the books for girls which she has written for Messrs. Blackie merely because they do not preach Catholic doctrine. The Ave Maria stories, if published at all, will come from the English Catholic Truth Society. In England a story is sold to a magazine for serial issue only—the right to publish in volume form remains with the author.

1913 Feb. 8
Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan found that she must have a translation of "La Princesse Lointaine" and wrote to Brentano's but they were slow. This is why she sends only one chapter. She also sends the synopsis for which Hudson asked.
