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

Fraser encloses the article of which she spoke (no enclosure). This is one of the chapters of her new book which comes out in the autumn. He can use more of it if he desires.

Waggaman, Mary T(eresa): (Georgetown, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Waggaman encloses receipt for the final payment on "White Eagle". She has looked in vain for her ideal of "Pat" and so has not been able to send him the frontispiece for "The Secret of Pocomoke." She hopes "White Eagle" pleased him and his readers. She liked the plot even better than that of "Billy Boy". It was written under considerable strain as her daughter, Mrs. Neill, was in a precarious state of health.

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

Tiernan was sorry to hear of Hudson's illness and has been ill herself with bronchitis and asthma. The preceding chapter was written in a blur because the doctor was giving her two hypodermics a day to keep the asthma under control. The chapter sent today will tell him why she has begged so hard for more space.

Pam, Max: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Pam sees no prospect of getting to Notre Dame until the middle of June. He is anxious to see Father Cavanaugh, but finds he is in New York—he may get to see him there. Hudson put his finger on the nub of the remedy in Pam's article in his quotation of Pam's article "Interlocking Directorates". He is getting material for a volume of his various writings. He is hoping to go abroad at the end of July and meet their mutual friend—Father Roche.

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

Atteridge was pleased to see Carmen Mackinnon's article in the Ave Maria received this week. She has a lot of interesting knowledge. Ben Hurst's laudatory writing about the Balkan League disappointed him. The Turkish Government has always been good friends with the Holy See. Most of the so-called massacres have been deliberately provoked by outrages of the secret societies. Lieut. Wagner's book "With the Conquering Bulgarians" shows what the Bulgarian secret societies are really like. He is a friend of the Bulgarians. The Greeks are the only respectable members of the League. Servia is distinctly anti-Catholic. Albania is just as bad. No wonder Austria had to move to save Scutari. He says this for Hudson's information and not for publication. Unfortunately most of the Catholic papers have taken all their inspiration from the non-Catholic press agencies of Europe. Some of their journalists have actually attacked Catholic Austria and tried—like (Elizabeth O'Brien) C(h)risti(t)ch— to start agitation against the rights of the Catholic Albanians. It looks now as if the schismatic Allies would begin to massacre each other.

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

Gilbert thanks Hudson for the article. The attack on Father (Matthew J.) Russell she has never seen and would rather not see it. Russell spoke of a column in the Ave Maria which he said pointed at her and bade her not be vexed about it. She said she did not think Hudson would have warned readers against her as a pagan writer. As to Benziger and the advertisement of one of her books; she did not see them. She has always felt that trivial talk about sacred mysteries of religion in a story does more harm than good. She has found very little favor in America—only from Hudson and Father (Isaac) Hecker when he was editor of the Catholic World. Her very Catholic book about the life of her husband did not get a single review in America—not even from the Pilot. She has had reason to distrust Benzigers. She gave her book, "Agatha's Hard Saying", to them which was more Catholic than any other story she has written. The Catholic Truth Society will acknowlege the Ave Maria if it publishes the stories.

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

Tiernan sends another chapter. The real story is just beginning. She sees grave difficulty in compressing and outlines what remains to be told.

Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father F(rancis) B(rowning) D.: Salisbury Plain, England
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He hates to hear of Hudson being so often laid up and thanks him for the stamps. He is glad Hudson liked the new manuscript. If Hudson holds it over for the new year, he fears it may be concluded that the idea of these letters was taken from Monsignor Benson's letters in the Universe.
