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

Father Reginald Yzendoarn, (SS.CC.) is the historian of the mission on these islands. He wanted more light as to Father Damien (de Veuster, SS.CC.) upon several points. Dutton sends Hudson his reply to the questions and Reginald's reply to them. (No enclosure: see Dutton to Hudson, Nov. 21, 1914.) Dutton has felt justified in sustaining Father Damien. The members of the mission who opposed him most severely are dead. Their action caused the Sisters—the Franciscans from Syracuse—to remain for six years at Honolulu instead of coming to Molokai at once. He sends this to Hudson because he was instrumental in bringing Damien before the world. The 15th of April will be the 25th anniversary of Damien's death.

Fraser, Mary C(rawford): Sorrento, Italy
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It has been a difficult winter. Her daughter-in-law caught typhoid fever in October and was very sick. Fraser was unable to do much writing. The story will reach him in good time. She has been unable to get to Rome. Apart from its beauty and its associations with Marion Sorrento is a dead place. She misses the public library in Spokane. She has not ceased to be homesick and was sorry to have been unable to stop off and see Hudson. Her son's health also forced them to hurry to Italy. They have finished another book called "Seven Years on the Pacific Slope". What does Hudson think of the state of things in England?
