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

Leslie has published Cardinal (Henry Edward) Manning's apologia in extenso and the London Times has realised its interest. The inclosed (no enclosure) is a fair account, and he hopes the original will reach Hudson in due time. Perhaps it is too late for Manning's enemies have had twenty-five years' start. The agony of Europe never ceases.

Walsh, Ja(me)s J.: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will have Bacon shortly before Easter. He is glad Hudson feels as he does with regard to Lodge. Conan Doyle said some time ago "either these spirit manifestations are true, or some great scientists are insane." Hysteria is the suggestability that develops under strong emotion, and human evidence in the presence of strong emotion is absolutely worthless. Does Hudson think (Oliver) Lodge crazy? Walsh thinks (John Godfrey) Raupert is. Devotees of spiritualism are fooling with their own nervous systems. The whole business is too cheap for the devil to have anything to do with it.

Bartch, J( ) J.: S(alt) L(ake) City, Ut(ah)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Bartch is sorry his donation is so small this year but charity on the homefront has increased. He congratulates Hudson on the reappearance of "Incidents and Anniversaries" in the Ave Maria, and the unprejudiced manner in which he comments upon current topics. It is regretable that all of their religious press was not free from British and Masonic propaganda. It will take years to recover from this.

Plassmann, O.F.M., Father Thomas: St. Bonaventure, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Plassmann thanks Hudson for the notice in the Ave Maria on Bartholomaeus Anglicus. He is glad others are interested in this 13th century scholar. Medical men in this country make a great deal of him. Plassmann has a copy of the "Census of Fifteenth Century books owned in America", edited by T.P. Winship of Harvard. Catholics should cooperate in such efforts. He remembers Bishop Shahan making a remark to that effect some time ago.

Nesbitt, Marian: Somerset, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She thanks Hudson for telling her what manuscripts of hers have been published and for the check he is going to send for "The Months". It is a terrible time for writers in England. Everything is so expensive. Hudson should receive a letter from Miss Leslie Moore. She is a convert and a writer. What does Hudson think of "Young Visitors"? Moore doesn't think much of it. Marian and Emily always lived in a world of make-believe.

1920 Mar. 26
Vaughan, Bishop John S(tephen): Great Harwood, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson can see that Vaughan has moved. The owner of the house he occupied at Southport was determined to sell. He is fairly well in health but beginning to feel old. He let off some steam in an article "Happiness here and hereafter", in "The Month". Out of sixteen brothers and sisters he and Father Bernard (Vaughan), S.J. are the only two left.
