Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey encloses a copyright check for two half-years. The Ave Maria is as delightful as ever. The news from Europe is frightful. Belgium has made history in a way never to be forgotten. Death is everywhere and the fact that it was avoidable takes the color from it. People here are stunned by the magnitude of the disaster to their great playground—Europe. Mexico has nearly vanished from the papers.

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

The death of Pius X came upon them with such terrible suddenness. The theaters and most of the shops in the city were closed. He was called "the poor people's Pope." She saw him lying in state in St. Peter's. They buried him in St. Peter's on the right of the High Altar almost below the great statue of St. Andrew. The war has stopped everything and there is much distress. Pius X spent a known eleven million francs on churches, orphanages, and schools, besides unknown sums on other works of charity. Would Hudson send a copy of "A Rift in the Rockies" to Dodd Mead and Co. It will appear in serial form in the "Catholic Fireside." Her son rushed to England to join the army, but their army has had a setback in France. The Germans are acting like friends. France she fears is going to pay for her persecution of the Church in the past forty years. P.S. Her statement about her friend's son, Marchese Patrigi, may be erroneous.
