Dennis, C(harles) H(enry): Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Hudson is authorized to republish passages from the special cable dispatch sent to the Daily News by its correspondent, Gordon Stiles. They want the reader to see that the dispatch comes from Berlin and not endorsed by The Daily News which has no information bearing upon the subject of the ex-Kaiser's letter to Professor Schiemann. (Clipping enclosed) from March 28, 1918, entitled: "Here's Kaiser's View of How War Began."

Seton, Bishop Robert (John): Pau, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Seton has just read "St. Patrick in Scotland" in the March 15 issue. Seton was well acquainted with Cardinal Moran and studied much about Scotland's claim to St. Patrick. In 1889 he was invited by a Scotch convert, Mr. Monteith, to visit him at Carstairs on whose grounds a Celtic Cross was erected as an historical monument of St. Patrick's birth place. An interesting story connected with this is that the convert Passionist Father Ignatius Spencer was found dead before the monument. Seton met Ignatius in Rome while a student.

Cram, Relph Adams: Boston, (Massachusetts)
 to Father John Talbet Smith: Dobbs Ferry, New York

Cram wonders if Smith realizes how gratifying to him was the article of Smith's in the Irish World reviewing Cram's book, "The Substance of Gothic." Smith's sympathetic approval meant much to Cram. He is sending Smith two of his pamphlets which Smith may not have seen.

Roesch, Frances A.: (New York, New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The death of her brother, (Father Francis A. Lederle) is a hard blow. Frank had the "St. Philip Neri" light-heartedness. She is sending Hudson Lederle's "tallying register" and a photo. He wished his chalice to be brought East. He hoped her youngest son, Joseph, 15, will use it some day. She hopes to meet Hudson some day. (Enclosed are two clippings about Lederle.)
