1913 Dec.2
Metcalf, Father Theodore A.: Brookline, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Metcalf thanks Hudson for his card and the word about "Italian Yesterdays". He encloses some clippings from the Boston Herald about a new play— "Damaged Goods" by Eugene Brieux. Metcalf is surprised that the Catholic ethical standpoint has not been advanced with solid moral arguments against a public presentation of so delicate a matter. The non-Catholics in this matter seem to fear only the disease of the body. Today the social sense is rotten.

1913 Dec.17
Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan asks for three copies of "The Light of the Vision". She hopes to send him another short story next year and congratulates him on his list of contributors for the coming year. She looks forward to the serial of (Mary Crawford) Fraser and the articles of John Ayscough. The Devin-Adair Co. has at last published "The Daughter of a Star," so "Far-Away Princess" will probably appear in the spring.

1913 Dec.18
Dowling, A(lfred) E.P. Raymund: (London, England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dowling thanks Hudson for his kind note of Nov. 7. His first thought was to send a copy of the "Flora" to replace Hudson's second-hand one, but he doesn't expect Hudson would like another. It is delightful to find people who care for the pious thoughts of their forefathers on nature. They ought not to require books to rouse Catholics to all this.

1913 Dec.21
Garrold, S.J., Father R(ichard) P.: Liverpool, (England)
 to Father D(aniel) E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Garrold has been ill and is sorry for the delay in answering Hudson's letter of Sept. 10 in which Hudson asked to read the manuscript of his next book. Garrold does not think he will publish any juvenile story in the immediate future, but when he does he will bear Hudson's request in mind.

1913 Dec.25
Spalding, Bishop J(ohn) L(ancaster): Peoria, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spalding encloses $10 for some pamphlets containing Father O'Donnell's poem. He is grateful to Hudson for bringing it to public attention. He encloses a note from Father (Daniel) Riordan on the Jubilee (no enclosure). Spalding likes Hello's book the more he reads it. He sends his greetings to Hudson and all his friends at Notre Dame and St. Mary's.

1913 Dec.30
Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father F(rancis) B(rowning) D.: Salisbury Plain, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

They had a quiet Christmas; his mother is better in health than for years. He sends two more "Letters from Home". It was in April he sent the first two. The letters are half autobiographical and should attract some interest and attention. According to his calculation he has 6 pounds 10 coming for them. (P.S.) He forgot how he signed the former two letters. These two are to have the same signature.
