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

Tiernan sent the book of Raphael's Hours just before Christmas. A severe cold wave forced her to turn her energies to providing fire and food, and this is the reason for the delay in writing. Her aunt is copying manuscript.

Murray, Thomas F.: Armidale, (Australia)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Following Murray's letter re the conscription referendum in Australia, Murray forwards pamphlets on the No-Conscription side, which was supported by the vast majority of Catholics in Australia. In Victoria Archbishop (Daniel) Mannix was a strong anti-conscriptionist, but there was a very small majority for No-Conscription, while in New South Wales where Archbishop (Michael) Kelly kept quiet there was an enormous majority against conscription. Murray encloses a copy (no enclosure) of a letter he wrote to the "Sun", Sydney newspaper. The Australians have spent 200,000,000 pounds on the European war without getting any benefit therefrom. Their casualties have amounted to over 40,000 killed and 100,000 wounded, and they think wealthy America should do her share. His brother, William Murray, a solicitor and attorney, writes a regular weekly letter to the "Catholic Press" in Sydney. Conscription for home defence is law here.

Woods, W(illia)m Seaver: New York, (New York)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The difference of conviction between adherents of the Sinn Fein party and the Redmondites as manifest in the United States is of deep concern to the entire American public and of vital importance to Ireland's future. The war complicates the problem on which The Literary Digest seeks light. They ask for editorial expressions from the organs that reach Irish Americans in favor or against either of these rival parties.
