Harrison, Alfred A.: Fort Augustus, Scotland
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Harrison had a short story "A Priest-hunt in Berkshire" in the now defunct Catholic Magazine "St. Peter's" in December of 1899. Would Hudson like to have it? (P.S.) He is just finishing a long story of Saxon times, but supposes that would not interest Hudson.

Klein, Father Felix: Meudon, (France)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

Once again Hudson has treated Klein's works with a kindness which touches his heart. Their hopes for religious peace are realized and the government is going to send an ambassador extraordinary to Rome for the celebration of the canonization of Jeanne d'Arc, under the leadership of Mr. Hanataux of the French Academy and former Foreign Minister.

Leslie, Shane: (London,) Hyde Park, England
 to Father (John Talbot) Smith: Dobbs Ferry, New York)

It must be nearly a year since he last saw Smith on Broadway. He can say nothing about Ireland because he would have to write it in tears of blood. He encloses a humorous map of homogeneous Ulster (not enclosed with letter) and a riposte he felt constrained to deliver to Ward Price's attack on Irish America in the Times. The Catholic Times called on him at short notice and he is afraid he has mortally offended the citizens of Birmingham, Alabama. They are looking forward with intense interest to the canonization of Oliver Plunket next week. His prayers are Irelands's last hope. He spent all morning preparing matter on his trial in the British Museum. He is sending an original manuscript sent to him with some secrecy from Ireland. As it is anonymous he could not print it in the Dublin Review. They are cut off from American news by the press barrage that is set up to isolate Irish opinion in the States. He has ceased to worry and sees no peace except in a Carthusian cell. P. S. Smith is to burn the article if he does not use it.

McMillan, C.S.P., Father Thomas: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana

Hudson no doubt has seen the article in the Dublin Review dealing with the strained relations between Bishop (Bernard J.) McQuaid and Archbishop (John) Ireland). It was written by one of the professors of St. Bernard's Seminary at Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork). McMillan wrote to Shane Leslie, the editor of the Dublin Review, to inquire as to what plans he had for another article to present the claims of Ireland. Leslie said they have been looking for a year for someone to write such an article, but neither Bishop (Thomas) O'Gorman nor Archbishop (Austin) Dowling can be induced. McMillan suggests Father (John) Talbot Smith and Hudson take up the matter at their Easter meeting. McMillan has pleasant memories of meeting Hudson at Notre Dame and is pleased Hudson is bringing out a new edition of the "Invitation Heeded" by Father Fidelis (Stone, C.P.).

Morais, C( )J.: Basrah, (Iraq)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

The life of St. Antony, "The Wonder Worker of Padua" by Charles Warren Stoddard and published by Hudson was brought to Morais' attention. He has translated it into Malayalam, the chief vernacular spoken in Malabar, South India. It is now ready for press and he needs Hudson's permission to proceed. He sees Hudson owns the copyright. He was educated in the Jesuit College of St. Joseph's at Trichinopoly.

De La Torre-Bueno, J( ) R.: White Plains, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

De La Torre-Bueno, a native of Peru, notices in the current issue a quotation from Clayton Sedgwick Cooper's book on South America called, "Understanding South America." He assumes that Hudson has not read the book for he is certain it would have been the object of the most caustic comment. It is a tissue of vulgar tales, pedantry, patronizing, and downright insulting to South Americans and to Catholics. He cites a few examples from his copy.
