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

Atteridge was glad to receive the July 17 issue with his article on Father (Edmund) Lester's (S.J.) training scheme for late vocations. He sent him a copy. Atteridge is glad the seed is sown and Lester is ready to cooperate with Notre Dame and the Jesuits if a start were made in the United States. Atteridge suggests asking the Knights of Columbus to get together funds for an experiment. Atteridge has just returned from the Liverpool Catholic Congress—a really successful gathering. He thought the Press gathering was the best of the sectional meetings. The chairman was Bishop (Louis C.) Casartelli. They had a Belgian delegate and the United States was represented by Father (Edward F.) Garesche, (S.J.). Another meeting will convene in London within three months in order to carry out some of the ideas and plans put forward.

(Stone), C.P., Father Fidelis: Chicago, Illinois
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C..: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

How is Stone's book coming? Has Father Meagher of the Xtn. Press Association been making any trouble? Stone has $180 from back pension pay and has permission from Rome to use it at his discretion. He will be glad to place the money at Hudson's disposal and hopes to receive some more next month.

Taccone, Bishop J(oseph) N(oe): Rome, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Taccone returned to Rome about the 14th of July and went to see Cardinal (William) Van Rossum, (C.SS.R.). Taccone had an audience with the Pope on July 20th. Van Rossum and the Pope appreciate the cooperation of the American priests and Sisters who volunteered for Taccone's diocese. The Sacred Congregation of Propaganda Fide and the Pope want them in a Society under the denomination of: "Society of American Priests for Schools in China," a society of secular priests with no vows, only with some rules as time and experience may suggest. It will be a crusade against the influence of the American and English Protestant schools in China. The pioneers are the Sisters of (Providence) from St. Mary of the Woods and the priests are Father Francis Xavier Clougherty and Mr. Frank Quinn, who will be ordained in a few months. Both are from Mount St. Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg. Many others will follow. Taccone will sail for America on August 18.
