Handley, Marie L(ouise): New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Handley will be happy to re-read or correct as many lines as Hudson likes. Handley will ask Mother Abbess to send Hudson the photo of Evansville. Hudson would be delighted with the financial plant at Evansville. The "mark of friendship" was delightful, and she hopes Hudson can use the 1875 photo of Mother Bentivoglio. Handley has been told that the Contessa Capece Galeata is allowing the Carmelite nuns in England to bring out a translation of her life of Livio in English. Handley is a little hurt at her action and her silence. She asked Handley to prepare an article for the "Month" on the boy's life which she has done. (P.S.) Handley wrote to Bishop Chartrand a week ago. Mother Abbess of Evansville wants 300 copies of the Life of Mother Bentivoglio when it appears.

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

Irish matters have passed into a Saturnalia of Satan. The government seems to be diabolically possessed. If only one of the American conventions had adopted an Irish plank they would have held their hand and never dared launch a program in Belfast or starved the martyred Mayor of Cork. The idea of the Government is apparently to wear both sides out until they meekly accept the Government proposals for an Irish settlement. The grim letters Bishop Cohalan and Sir Horace Plunkett sent to the Times can be substantiated. Leslie encloses a Bible Study which Hudson may use care to use in the Ave Maria.

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

Walsh thanks Hudson for the kind words about the Bacon article. He will be interested in the pamphlet on Spiritualism although he does not believe there is anything at all in Spiritualism. Walsh believes that Conan Doyle is writing Spiritualism mainly because there is money in it. He thinks that Oliver Lodge is hysterical. His loss of his son upsets his power of judging of truth in these matters. Whenever we stop talking about spiritualism the movement dies almost of itself. Walsh relates a story about this which he knows is true. The ouija movers are certainly to be distrusted.

Lawrence, R( ): Syracuse, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Lawrence will be glad to do reviewing. He has been reading Maisie Ward's "Father Maturin". Lawrence has a very beautiful letter from him which should have gone into the volume.

Berlioz, Bishop A(lexander): Sendai, Japan
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Berlioz assures Hudson of his gratitude. The recent publication of Father (Joseph) Freri on Shintoism will tell Hudson how their efforts are paralysed. Berlioz is going to send a sample of their publications for the library at Notre Dame. A change of personnel at Hakadate was proposed in 1919. As the rule of their society is going to be reformed it was decided to wait. If Monsignor Legrand is at Notre Dame, Hudson is to give him Berlioz's wishes for the success of his crusade.
