Tiernan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan sends three chapters of manuscript. She is glad to know that Hudson is well again. She congratulates Hudson on the way in which he concealed the transposition of those misplaced chapters.

Straus, Nathan: Pasadena, California
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Straus thanks Hudson for his kind commendation and for the use he is making of his interview on charity which Hudson read in the N(ew) Y(ork) Sun. It is encouraging to have his modest efforts toward relieving the world's suffering approved by one like Hudson.

Hinkson, Pamela Mary: Claremorris, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The war has brought death to many of their friends. She is now 14 years old and taller than Bunny. Father has been a Resident Magistrate here since October. It is a beautiful country, but rather desolate. P.S. She has not given up collecting stamps.

1915 Mar. 20
Teirnan, F(rances) C(hristine Fisher): Salisbury, N(orth) C(arolina)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Tiernan would have sent more manuscript but her aunt who does the typing has gout in her fingers. Tiernan thanks Hudson for the kind letter from the Jesuit Father. Her serial "The Secret Bequest" was rejected by Kenedy and she does not want to give another book to Benzigers or Herder. Hudson could have it for $300 if he is interested. This will likely be the last Catholic novel she will write. The conditions in Mexico have completely destroyed all their investments there. Does Hudson remember where he got the two anonymous extracts in the Ave Maria. They are hers.

1915 Mar.30
Hurth, (C.S.C.), Bishop P(eter) J(oseph): Vigan, Philippine Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hurth is 58 years old today and has been a priest for 35 years. Writing to Father Scheier he thought a letter would go to Hudson from Manila. Vain hope! He went to Manila and on the 21st preached in the Cathedral. Bishop McGinley was celebrant and besides other prelates there were delegations from all the religious orders. Hurth suspects the Archbishop wanted to "lead him on the ice", but he came off O.K. He is glad Hudson appreciated the joint pastoral of the German bishops. Hurth thinks Bishop Faulhaber's address is bound to be immortal. How different from the pastoral of Cardinal Mercier. The French were no better in their wars and did the same things they accuse the Germans of. Julien de Narfou writing in "Figaro" speaks against sending priests to the battle line. The Superior Regularis of the Jesuits are at Vigan to sign the contract which has been in preparation and discussion for over a year. With this contract pending, Hudson will surmise that his sermon "Jesuits" had a significance which does not at first sight appear. Hurth has planned another rather bad tour for after Easter. He has not yet seen all of the Diocese. He has acknowledged Hudson's benefactions to Father Scheier. He has requests for three schools wanted in pagan localities in the mountains. (He encloses a note concerning the effects of having French priests fight in the War.)

Maxwell Scott, M(ary) M(onica): Wimbledon, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Thank God their sons are safe at present. They were interested to know for certain that Pere Sauvage wrote the charming letter. She is grateful to Hudson and Dr.(?) Wilfred for the thought that they would like to see the articles on her father and the one on Sergeant Bellaris who was one of their friends. She will send on the Ave Maria to both her sisters who will be interested as will Father Bellaris. She will send Hudson the new edition of her book "Tragedy of Fotheringay". She hoped that Monsignor Benson would write a fine historical novel about Queen Mary.
