Hurth, (C.S.C.), Bishop P(eter) J(oseph): Vigan, Philippine Islands
 to Father (John) Scheier, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hurth thanks Scheier for his (Mass) intentions and for the $16 from Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.). The doctor advises Hurth to go to the hot baths near Manila. Rheumatism and varicose veins are giving him trouble. Scheier is as silent as the grave about the succession in Dacca. At Washington the destinies of the Philippines are hanging in the balance. From present accounts independence is to be given after two years, but the Philippines will not be independent for five years. Hurth has been reading a French pamphlet which proves theologically that the Catholic German soldiers are committing mortal sin only materially by fighting under the German flag. There is going to be a schism.

Gold, Guy D.: Brockton, (Massachusetts)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Gold received Hudson's reprint from the Ave Maria. He is a Lutheran, but his mother was a Roman Catholic. Gold has been engaged for a number of years in social welfare work, most of the time under close relationship with the Y(oung) M(en's) C(hristian) A(ssociation). His work has given him wide experience with immigrants of some thirty different races and nationalities. Most of them have come from Catholic countries. It would be easy for him to-criticize these people in his public lectures, but he knows of no good purpose that can be gained by such criticism. He tries to approach his work without any prejudice. He thanks Hudson for his interest in what he is trying to do on behalf of the New American.

Saggese, P( ): Seattle, Wash(ington)
 to William J. Onahan: Chicago, Ill(inois)

Saggese has a book entitled "Postilla Catholica Evangeliorum de tempore totius anni" published at Cologne by Arnold Quentell in 1597. The author was Jacob Feuchth of Bainbey. Saggese had written to Archbishop Von Abest of Bainbey in regard to the book who replied that there was no such book in the metropolitan capitol. The book is in good condition. If Onahan is interested, Saggese will forward photos of the book, hoping to get Onahans estimate of the book's value.

 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Daniels, Josephus: Washington, (District of Columbia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): South Bend, Ind(iana)

Daniels is in receipt of Hudson's clipping with regard to the dismissal of the eighty-two midshipmen who failed to qualify in the semi-annual examinations. He was gratified that Hudson approved of his action. Badly as they need officers, their officers must measure up to the standards. He recalls his visit to South Bend.
