Hughes, Father H(enry) G.: Norwich, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson has sent Hughes too much money. He has always had explicit confidence in Hudson's bookkeeping. The series began, he believes, under the title of "Practical Points of Religion." Hudson should let him know how things stand. Would he want the surplus returned or take it out in articles of which he has several drafted? He has been ill for the past month. Wagner could not take his book, so Washbourne is going to publish it.

(Hess), O.S.F.C.,Father Cuthbert: Oxford, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He sends by this mail an article: "Catholic Principles and International Politics". He hopes to enlist Hudson's said in propagating the need of a Catholic Movement of Political Science. The subject is beginning to attract attention in England. The war in Europe means an opportunity for Catholic reconstructive ideas.

Hurth, (C.S.C.), Bishop P(eter) J(oseph): Brookland, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The letters that came to St. Francis Hospital after his leaving have been forwarded. They kept him over a month. His brother died in August, but he had gone mad and he is better off. His only living aunt passed away. A banquet was given at the Masonic Temple for Mr. Quezon, the Speaker of the newly inaugurated Senate of Manila. Governor General Harrison spoke and said "the best Filipinos are Masons." Quezon is now publicly known as a Mason. Archbishop (Jeremiah J.) Harty got an invitation for the inauguration of the Senate addressed to Mr. Harty. Harty got a great sendoff from Manila. In view of the aggressive parading of Masonry in the Philippines, it seems that a re-issue of Captain Blunt's book is particularly desirable. Some parcels may come for him; will Hudson tell Father (John) Scheier to keep them there.

Paderewska, Helena: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Hudson's letter made them happy to see that people are taking an interest in their work. The needs of Poland are greater than those of any other country. The promised check can either be sent to her husband or to her. Mr. Paderewski's fund sends the money direct to Switzerland to be distributed among the hungry people. She collects money for milk. He could also send the contribution to her girls' home fund. (Enclosed is a printed letter) to the Womanhood of America asking aid for the founding of a home in Warsaw whose name will be the American Refuge for Suffering Womanhood.
