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

Could Hudson send a copy of the proofs to F.H. Dodd in New York. What date will suit Hudson with regard to bringing the serial out in book form. She is getting used to the new Rome. The city has just turned out the Freemasons who had ruled it for seven years. A terrible shadow has been cast over Europe by the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife. They had all hoped so much from him when his time to reign came. Her daughter-in-law is still suffering and they hope to get her back to her own English airs. The "Golden Rose" is running as a serial in the Catholic Times, and in a Hungarian weekly paper as well.

Hallam, O.F.M., Father Wilfrid M.: Wei hai wei, China
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hallam is sorry for the delay in thanking Hudson for the kind donations which have led to a record year in missionary activity. He has pressed upon the Bishop the need for 20 missionaries and a thousand catechists. There is a population of over two million souls in St. Joseph's mission district. A church is to be built in the anti-foreign city of Yungching. There catechists are doing good work and their number ought to be greatly increased. There is a demand that he should found a school for fifty young men. They require a large school for the preparation of catechists. Hallam relates the story of the work of one of the catechists. Another addition has been made to the mission at Weihai. The requisite money has been subscribed chiefly from Germany by clients of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. F(rancis) X(avier)-Hsieh-Jefferson remains always staunch and is taken up by many duties.
