Towner, Horace M.: Washington, (District of Columbia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Hudson's reference to his speech came to hand. It will be necessary that all those who believe in a dangerous tendency toward socialism do all they can to combat such doctrines. He encloses (no enclosure) his speech.

(Christitch, Elisabeth O'Brien Ben Hurst: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The Cardinal thinks Hudson will like to see the entire pastoral from which he recently gave quotations. The article on National Civilisations has been returned to (Christitch) by the Irish Rosary owing to what Father Finbar Ryan calls censorious reasons. She submits the article to Hudson. (Christitch) was told on her return to England that "the Ave Maria managed to remain Christian all through the war!" There were many strange changes in ecclesiastical circles. It is good of Hudson to pray for her son's conversion. She notes the names of Fathers Kelly and Zahm in their Washington College. Nikola's (Christitch) trip to Washington is postponed; he has been entrusted with a mission to the Quirinal. Annie is about to lecture in the U.S.A. to get funds for a Cathedral in Belgrade. Things have moved since Hudson's first check twenty years ago.

Watts, Henry C.: London, (England)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Since the conclusion of peace with Germany they have secured greater facilities and a greater variety of news. They have abandoned the letter style, and sent out the news in short dispatches giving the place of origin. It does away with any grounds for suggesting that the dispatches are cooked up or colored by them in London. Watts will continue to send dispatches, and if Hudson decides to subscribe to the Service he will charge him from the first dispatch issued in November. The service began in 1918. Watts used to be on the staff of America in New York City, and from there went to the New York Times, where he was with Joyce Ki(l)mer. When Kilmer joined in 1917 he got the idea of coming back to England and starting a Catholic War News Service. It has been rough going since its foundation, but things are improving. They get a daily correspondence from Germany, and a very voluminous one from Paris. Money is a big problem. They depend for their existence on the subscriptions they get for their news. The Service is not connected with the Benedictines or Pax, The Benedictine Quarterly Review, as the letter head might indicate. He runs the publicity end of Pax. He used to be a Caldey monk when they were Protestants, and he entered the Church with them and went into the United States and was associate editor of the Lamp. They have the confidence of his Eminence Cardinal Bourne. He wants to know Hudson's feeling toward France, as he is anxious to help out the Comite Catholique de Propagande Francaise. He is in frequent contact with the Secretary, Canon Beaupin. Beaupin is able to secure articles from the great French Catholic writers.

Leslie, Shane: Kenmore, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Kerry is full of semi-tropical flowers and ferns and how it could have ever been swept by famine passes his comprehension. He is glad Hudson liked the Dublin Review. The October number contains a shock! Leslie would like two copies of his poem concerning Cardinal Farley.

Manzetti, Father Leo P.: Roland Park, M(arylan)d
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

In New York on his way back from Notre Dame Manzetti was told at the headquarters of the St. Gregory Musical Society that the so-called Vatican Choir included seven regular members of the Sistine Chapel Choir. But back in Baltimore he received a letter from Father Angelo De Santi, S.J., President of the Pontifical High School of Church Music in Rome, in which he said that there is confusion about the singers. The Societa Polifonica Romana is made up of the best singers of the churches of Rome. None belong to the Sistine. Naturally this is private information. To make it public would spoil the success of the tournee of the Roman Choir.

Kent, E(ugene) L.: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Why have the Knights of Columbus selected to honor (Marquis de) Lafayette in a special manner and particularly in erecting that statue to him in Coblenz. In his writings Lafayette recorded that he had ceased to believe in the religion of his youth which his wife clung to so fervently. He has written a dozen times that in religion he was a Fayettist as he was in politics. Kent presumes the Knights are honoring the friend of American liberty. (Comte de) Rochambeau was not carried off by the adulation of Masons and Protestants. Perhaps an article on Madam Lafayette might help to straighten this out.

Wise, Stephen S.: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Wise thanks Hudson for sending his comments on Wise's recent addresses on the labor question. Hudson is not the only priest or churchman from whom he has had words of appreciation. They must all stand together in matters such as these.

Moses, George H.: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Moses thanks Hudson for the clipping of the editorial from the Ave Maria. It is a satisfaction to know that one is remembered.

O'Connell, Daniel T.: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

O'Connell received the editorial in re Michael J. O'Brien's book, "A Hidden Phase of American History". O'Connell is sure the sale of O'Brien's book will be greatly increased because of the bitter attack by Senator (John S.) Williams. The National Council is presenting a copy of the book to each member of the Senate. If the Irish National Bureau can be of service Hudson should call on then. P.S. The Congressional Record of October 24 contains an address by Senator (Asle J.) Gronna of North Dakota in which a parallel is drawn between the separation of Norway from Sweden and the logic of permitting Ireland to be separated from England.

Wadsworth, Charles Jr.: Overbrook, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Wadsworth thanks Hudson for the article referring to "Nebuchadnezzar's Image". He would like a copy of the publication in which it appears.
