Maes, Bishop Camillus P(aul): Covington, K(entuck)y
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Maes received Hudson's check for $31.50 for the Belgian Relief Fund. He has sent all money to a classmate of his who happens to be Vicar General of Cardinal Bourne of Westminster, Monsignor Surmont. The Auxiliary of Cardinal Mercier is in London and Maes feels the money reaches where it will do the most good. Did Hudson read Mercier's Pastoral? The five dollars sent by a descendant of a man of Dixmude he sent to the Dean of Dixmude, another classmate of Maes who writes that the three remaining churches of the nineteen in his deanery have been demolished. Their XIII century church is in ruins along with the other buildings. A week ago he received word from Ghent that the German Kommandatur allowed letters to be forwarded. He wrote, but five days later word came that the permission had been annulled. It was long enough to learn that his loved ones in Courtrai are well.
