O'Loughran, Father Robert: N(ew) York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Loughran asks Hudson to insert the enclosed notice of his book, "Redmond's Vindication," in the next issue of the Ave Maria. It was reviewed in last month's "Catholic World". He has just come from Ireland.

(Duff), O.F.M., Father Alphonse: Buffalo, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He thanks Hudson for the life of the Cure, (St. John Baptist Vianney). There is a new life by Joseph Vianney which is good. He is sending a few pictures of the Cure and has a relic. The members of their Third Order started and collected nearly $2,000 for a Burse in honor of the Cure at Maryknoll, Ossining, New York. They also give money to help the canonization. He supposes Hudson read of of the protection of the Cure over the soldiers of Ars. He read with pleasure in their "Buffalo Catholic Union and Times" that Archbishop (John) Ireland paid two visits to the Cure.

Vickrey, Charles V.: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

A formal protest from the officers of the Armenian Organization of Egypt and Palestine, complaining of discrimination against Armenians, has reached him. The bitter prejudices between the various religious bodies that center around Jerusalem makes it almost impossible to distribute relief to the satisfaction of all. The money for Palestine, nearly $50,000 a month, is sent through the American Red Cross and is administered under a commission of which Dr. J(ohn) H. Finley, President of the University of New York, is the Chairman. Vickrey knows the Red Cross tried very hard to secure a Catholic member of the commission. He suggested two or three Catholic laymen who were unable to go and Cardinal Gibbons was consulted. He is confident that Finley would not tolerate any continued discrimination. He noticed that the Syrian-Palestine Relief Committee with which they cooperated previous to the Red Cross' entrance, had added to their committee Lieut. Comm. Hon. R. Fielding who is a Roman Catholic. If more needs to be done please let them know.

Elwes, Winifride: Northampton, (England)
 to Father B. (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Elwes encloses (no enclosure) a little memoir of Sister Clare, her sister, which she hopes Hudson might insert in the Ave Maria. She knows her sister occasionally sent contributions to the Ave Maria.

Reid, Gilbert: Clinton, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Many months ago he received Hudson's expression of good wishes for his article on his appreciation of the Church of Rome. He has left China and visited Catholic missions in the Philippines. If at any time Hudson knows of any conferences where he could speak on his appreciation of Catholic missions in China or the Philippines he would be delighted to attend. Reid expects to go back to China after the war.

Vickrey, Charles V.: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Vickrey will forward Hudson's letter with a copy of the editorial to the American Red Cross in Washington to be sent to Dr. (John H.) Finley who he is sure will appreciate the expression of confidence, and which will confirm his determination to avoid all discrimination in Bible Lands. Finley will remain there until spring and then follow the armies northward.

Barrett, O.S.B., Father Michael: Buckie, Scotland
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Barrett is pleased that Hudson liked his first really long story. It seemed necessary to illustrate the effect of the overthrow of the Church upon different classes of society and that is one reason for the variety of characters. He will await Hudson's decision on the story.

Leslie, Shane: Port Washington, L.I., (New York)
 to Father (John Talbot) Smith: (Dobbs Ferry, New York)

If Smith prints the interesting article on Leslie's book he suggests that he omit the references to Choate and the Scribners. He would be satisfied if Smith let him go over it with a view to publication during the peace negotiations which may be in full blast by Christmas. At the present time he thinks it best not to press Irish matters with world events moving so rapidly. Ireland is submerged. He hopes that Smith noticed the British Bishop's excellent speech at Washington in which he generously and hopefully referred to the Irish situation. He sent his copy of the account in the New York Herald to America. He feels that this is the beginning of a general conciliation. Leslie will suggest that John Dillon get in touch with the Irish World once more.

Leslie, Shane: Port Washingotn, L.I., (New York)
 to Father (John Talbot) Smith: (Dobbs Ferry, New York)

Smith is a generous Irishman to allow Leslie to blue pencil his work. He has stored away Smith's review to read on rainy days. The time will come when they will have to print a flood of stuff of Ireland from every point of view. The San Francisco petition to the president has reached them. Bourke Cockran thinks it inadvisable at this moment, but Leslie does not pretend to advise Irishmen at this time. He works independently for Irish rights. Both sides regard him as something between traitor and trimmer. He asks Smith to send the enclosed without name to the Irish World and be gentle to his Bishop. His speech was wonderful from the most Protestant diocese in England, including Cambridge and the county of Norfolk.
