O'Loughran, Father Robert: London, Ontario
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Father Feely, from Canon O'Kennedy's parish, Fedamore, Ireland, told him of Hudson. O'Loughran thought he might see Hudson before returning to Ireland. He was in Chicago in January lecturing to the Irish Fellowship Club. Will Hudson be home in June? At present he is Bishop Fallon's guest and was in Ireland for the Rebellion, and knows modern Ireland well. A pamphlet of his, "What is wrong with Modern Ireland" has been published by the Catholic Union and Times of Buffalo, New York. He also lectures on Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson. O'Loughran wrote his first life and helped Father Cyril Martindale with the new one. Perhaps Hudson would like a lecture or two. He returns to Ireland in July.

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

Atteridge sends an article which he thinks Hudson will like. His treatment of Holy Scriptures and modern discoveries is "popular" and did not attempt to go into all the arguments for or against. A few years ago he heard the editor of an aggressively anti-Church paper say that "Every schoolboy knows that the Gospels are a production of the second century." Atteridge informed him of some of the more recent studies on the Gospels. Harnack has abandoned the Tubigen theory in this matter. Their British "Rationalist Press Association" keeps producing versions of Haeckel.

Ireland, Archbishop John: St. Paul, (Minnesota)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ireland thanks Hudson for the copy of the translation of the Pentecost Hymn. Ireland is sorry that he will be unable to be at Notre Dame for the coming celebration.

1917 May 31
O'Kennedy, Father R(ichard): Fedamore, (Ireland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Kennedy got Hudson's letter telling him that the submarine gave some pious reading to the fishes of the Atlantic. The Bishop of Limerick told O'Kennedy that he liked his poetry and the Ave Maria, but that it was so pro-British. O'Kennedy will begin to re-write the "Sanctus in the Mass" and hopes Hudson got the papers on "Dominus Vobiscum." Every morning he re-writes a page of "The Mother of Jesus". He must give Hudson a fact he knows about the True Cross.
