1919 Mar.
Leslie, Shane: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The Jan-April Dublin (Review) is a disappointment as the best article came too late. It was to give a historical account of Cardinal Manning, Gibbons and Archbishop Corrigan, also Dr. McGlynn. Leslie is stranded with superfluous copies of the number. He has no use for a Catholic Quarterly unless they strike the welkin every number. Ireland is in exactly the same position as Poland was to the Congress of Vienna. Leslie heard the unhappy (Woodrow) Wilson make his apologia last week. He gives Leslie the impression of having won the whole world and lost his own soul. The Irish have turned against him. The French and British are doing likewise.

1919 Mar. 15
(Kilmer, Annie Kilburn): New Brunswick, (New Jersey)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Kilmer) was interested in "The Journey Home" but had a quickened interest this week when he spoke of Father Sargent whom she knew when Joyce (Kilmer) was little and of Holy Cross House where Joyce went just before his 21st birthday to prepare for Easter. Hudson's editorial re Dr. Wu Ting Fang and Wilson is a delightful bit of sarcasm. Father Garesche of the Queen's Work has asked her to write a memoir of Joyce. Her main object in writing it was to make plain the fact that her son was reared a Christian though on reading the memoirs published one would gather that the Church took to her bosom a weed instead of a flower. She ought to be a Dominican because her birthday is August14, her family motto "Vincit Veritas" and she has one of the "Poppy Heads" taken from a pew in St. Mary's Anglican Church where her English ancestor was warden in 1635. She placed a window in that Church in 1905 to old Thomas Kilburn's memory. She gave a talk to the children of the Preparatory School where Joyce graduated. Did she send Hudson "The Valentine" which Joyce wrote for her a few years ago. She has not heard from Father Hayes, the editor of "The Sister's Messenger." He told her he was preparing an article on "Joyce Kilmer and his Mother".

1919 Mar. 25
(Bachofen), O.S.B., Father Augustine: Conception, M(iss)o(uri)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana

He thanks Hudson for the statement about Volume III of his book in the last March number. Hudson says it is in need of correction which Augustine is only too ready to admit.
