Leslie, Shane: St. Johnsbury, V(ermon)t
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson is to keep the diabolical book until further notice. After a lawsuit it is now being translated into French. A grim book called "Eminent Victorians" (Giles Lytton Strachey) has just been published. Leslie will answer the first section but it is real and terrible literature of the type likely after the war. He has collected his poetry into 100 "Lyrics and Liturgies". He would like Hudson to glance at the collection and suggest some devout printer.

Woodlock, Thomas F.: Mount Vernon, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Father John J. Burke, C.S.P., who is active in the Catholic War Council, tells him that the percentage of Catholics in the Army and Navy has been much exaggerated. It may prove a "boomerang". Burke thinks 25 per cent is a fair estimate as against 30 to 40 per cent frequently mentioned in Catholic papers.

Halloran Father Frederick (J.): New Brunswick, N(ew) J(ersey)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Halloran encloses a poem written by (Annie) Kilburn Kilmer, mother of Joyce Kilmer, who died on the field of battle. She asked Halloran to send it to Hudson and he hopes Hudson will publish it. Mrs. Kilmer is under instruction and hopes to follow her son into the Church. Halloran suggests Hudson write to Mrs. Kilmer before publishing the poem and gives her address. Halloran expects to go into the Army in a few days.
