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

The Ave Maria of April 25 has arrived and Atteridge was very interested in Hudson's note on Hale's "Armada". The book had a very good reception in England even among several non-Catholic papers. Hudson describes Hale as a "non-Catholic author". This is not so. Atteridge has been a Catholic all his life and he himself is John Richard Hale. This is a secret known only to a few friends. He has already achieved a reputation as an expert on military affairs and decided to use a nom-de-guerre for this other field. His first work "Famous Sea Fights from Salamis to Tsu-shima" has gone through two editions. All this he says in confidence. (P.S.) The "Universe" has finally gotten straightened out on his article on his Park lectures.

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

Ayscough has written for Hudson whenever he could. He is certain no priest his age in England has half the actual priestly work to do that he has, then a correspondence that means full four hours' writing a day, attention to a home, a mother, a household, and the literature. He knows he is tempting a breakdown. He will send another 6700 words. Without his meager earnings he could not keep this house over his mother's head and her doctor bills.

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

Dowling only wishes the Amer(ican Cath(olic) Quarterly was as business-like as the Ave. He won't be able to send the article for the Visitation. He is going to Aix-Les-Bains for a holiday and to recover from the shock of his brother's death. His 16 year old daughter has been a great comfort to him. It is an endless consolation to see their young Catholics rising up like pure flowers.

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

Fraser sends the remaining chapter of the "Rift in the Rockies". She hopes it meets with his approval. She has been told it would have a great success as a movie play and she would like to know when it could be available for this. She is staying at the apartment of a friend in Rome. She is going to look up Professor Ballerini and write Hudson's papr on "St. Peter's Confessionary". Her son and his wife are enjoying Rome. Kitty is still weak. She hopes Hudson's health is good, and thanks him for the cutting from the "Literary Digest" about "Italian Yesterdays". The review in the Ave Maria of the "Golden Rose" was excellent. The novel is being translated into Hungarian.

Christitch, E(lisabeth O'Brien): Holborn, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Christitch thanks Hudson for the remittance. It will give Annie a run to Boulogne or Chartres. The Ave Maria is really the most Catholic review extant. The Albanian article bears out all that is now taking place in that last resort of Mohammedanism. God help the Catholics with their false protectress, Austria. The article on the Russian pilgrims was splendid. "Sister Servia" is thriving in Tyburn. Annie is on the usual dreary round of journalism.
