(Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father Francis Browning D.) John Ayscough: (Salisbury Plain, England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ayscough thanks Hudson for the stamps and for liking "Levia Pondera". "Levia Pondera" has made two converts in his neighborhood.

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

Tiernan sends one chapter. The many erasures and corrections tell him how little it satisfies her. She is happy that what she writes pleases Hudson and his readers. How can they bear to lose the Holy Father and how can he be replaced?

Heuser, Father H(erman) J.: Overbrook, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Probably Monsignor (James P.) Turner, the Editor of the American Catholic Quarterly Review, has communicated with Hudson about (John Godfrey) Raupert's articles. Heuser placed the manuscript in Turner's hands and he thought it might be published in three instalments. Heuser has taken the liberty of quoting the Ave Maria in the matter of Woman Suffrage—i.e. the Bishop of Hobart, to counteract any false impression occasioned by the communication of "Criticus", this in the May issue.

(Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father Francis Browning D.), John Ayscough: Salisbury Plain, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ayscough has hit upon an idea—"Letters from Home"—that is, from the warm hearth of the Catholic Church. One of his best critics says Ayscough has a unique power of 'transcription' in dialogue and an unusual capacity for putting real letters into his books. His idea is to continue the Roman papers. The present installment of two letters is 4400 words. He will send a lot more installments to keep Hudson going.
