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

Since the war began Atteridge has been busy with military map-making, journalism, and the editing and writing of books about the war. He sends a short account of Trent. He has been much interested in reading Hudson's editorials on the troubles in Europe. Hudson has held the balance very evenly. In England many have been quite swept away by the excitement of the war.

Metcalf, Father Theodore A.: Brookline, Mass(achusetts)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

With the war in Europe it is difficult to write of anything else. The President's demands on Germany are just big words. What can they do? They are not prepared to fight. Last May 20th he began his 73rd year and the forty-seventh of his priesthood. He encloses a sonnet which was written for his friend, Father Thomas A. Reid, S.J., who will celebrate his sacerdotal jubilee next Thursday. P.S. Metcalf has a copy of the "Book of Common Prayer" published in London in 1853. Names of well known English people are on the flyleaf: "Ellen Malwell Lyte, from George Talbot Bagot."

Curtis, Georgina Pell: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

$150 per printed page of the Ave Maria is a price satisfactory to Curtis. It is impossible to bring the story out later in book form; it would cost more than she could afford. She leaves for Woods Hole on June 29 to be gone until October. Curtis thanks Hudson for his kind words about the defence of Father Maturin. In place of ears God has given her a rapid and legible hand. She has been asked by the Catholic Historical Review to write an article on early conversions to the Church in America.
