Hughes, Father H(enry) G.: Stony Stratford, Eng(land)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hughes was sorry to hear about Hudson's eyes. Hughes was speaking to their Bishop about an article he had in the Ave Maria. The Bishop could not find his copy, for it is always filched by his household as soon as it arrives. The Bishop wonders why Hudson gives the British such hard raps lately. Hughes said Hudson was only going for the politicians. Three articles should have reached Hudson by now: "The Life of Earth," "The Life of Heaven," and "Candlemas." Sometime ago he sent "Soul Biography," and is not sure it appeared. The world is in a sad state, but he has a very pleasant and quiet life. He has nearly finished Dr. McBee's article.

Small, James Louis: Oshkosh, Wis(consin)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Small encloses(no enclosure) a series of papers on Lourdes which he hopes Hudson can publish. They are the result of first-hand experiences gained during a ten days' leave while on duty in France as a Knights of Columbus secretary. He is sure that the Pierre de Rudder he has named is identical with the man Dr. Cox described to him. This could be easily established by a reference to Dr. Bertrin's work on Lourdes.

K(irlin), Father J(oseph) L.J.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Everyone was so kind during his illness. It was an awful anticlimax to get better. The bishop is at Mt. St. Mary's making an appeal for theologians to join his society to be priests for the English speaking colonials of South China and East India. At Overbrook six applied, but nothing has come of it. He has one good man in the senior Christian Brothers Parish School who will go to them. Kirlin has been waiting to see a notice of Enid Dennis' new book "Mystics All" in the Ave Maria. They have had as supply on Sundays Father (Charles A.) Dougherty, O.S.F.S. He was the only priest Bishop (Frederick) Kinsman knew and tells some interesting things about him. Kinsman was received into the Church by Cardinal Gibbons. Kinsman had to put his father in a hospital and when his money was gone, Dougherty was able to send Kinsman $2000 from a benefactress.

(19)20 Apr. 12
Atteridge, A. Hilliard: Isleworth, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Atteridge sends the article on Father (Edmund) Lester's (S.J.) work. Atteridge encloses a reference to Lester's work in the column Lester contributes each week to "The Universe". Lester will be glad to help get the movement started in America. One important point Lester makes is that young men with late vocations be educated apart from the mass of students at an existing college. Atteridge has often met them and they are a splendid lot. Lester himself is full of fun. Hudson should read the wonderful life of Father (William Joseph G.) Doyle, S.J. by Professor (Alfred) O'Rahilly. He was chaplain to the Irish Guards and was killed on the battlefield. The "Times" gave the book a most laudatory review.

1920 Apr. 17
(Egan), M(aurice Francis): Brooklyn, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The fourth part of "The Dark Influence" has arrived. Patricia is a subscriber to the Ave Maria, but lends her numbers so Egan does not see them. A Jesuit is delighted with the story and a Dominican approves, as does a young lady. Egan is encouraged. Egan sent Hudson some verse written while he was thinking of Hudson and the old tune "Daughter of the Mighty Father." Carmel's new little girl is to be baptized today. He saw Mrs. Fish with Mrs. George O'Brien at his talk. Egan has collected over $600 for those poor nurses in Vienna.
