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

The clipping is especially welcome since there have been some attacks on their Committee in the Catholic press. Dr. MacCallum of their office, who has spent practically his entire life in Western Asia, called upon Bishop (Joseph) Freri of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith to learn the bases of these attacks. They want to do everything possible to insure fair distribution. $17,000,000 has been administered so far and they believe without discrimination. It was for this purpose that they asked Walter George Smith of Philadelphia to be one of their commissioners. They have cabled Smith in Constantinople to give them any evidence that he may discover that would give a basis for the criticism.

Raupert, J(ohn) Godfrey: Chicago, Ill(inois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson may be interested to see the enclosed letter (no enclosure) from the lady whose communication Hudson sent to him some time ago. Raupert evidently relieved her mind of a great anxiety. Spiritism is making inroads in Chicago and one can but regret that the authorities are not showing keener interest and activity. Book after book is appearing on the other side of the camp. He hears from England that thousands are attending Conan Doyle's lectures and Crawford's second book is very persuasive. Raupert agrees with everything he says except his interpretation of the phenomena. Father (Johan C.) Liljencrant's book is a mistake; he is 20 years too late. Raupert is going over to Techny to lecture tomorrow and Friday. On Monday he is off to Dubuque on the invitation of the Archbishop.

Hurth, C.S.C., Bishop P(eter) J(oseph): Vigan, Philoppine Islands
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana

Hurth writes to Father Scheier, from time to time and presumes Hudson gets words of his activities. Hurth had the Archbishop of Manila at Vigan last week on a visit. He said the Ave Maria was admirable. They started a Catholic Daily paper last fall and it died about two months ago. They will start again. This time at the Bishop's meeting he urged that every diocese, every religious order, and every stationed priest should be induced to take shares in the venture. The shares are being taken better than was anticipated at first. In two or three months the new venture will start. The enclosed letter is a sample of what is coming now (no enclosure).
