Rayalu, C. Francis: (Pannirkulam, South India)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana

The publication of the pamphlet along with some other efforst on his part has brought on a bitter persecution. This is not to stand in the way of having the pamphlet republished.

Rayalu, C. Francis: Pannirkulam, South India
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Rayalu sends a small pamphlet of verses which were written for distribution last January when the first India Marian Congress assembled in Madras. Perhaps Hudson can get some Catholic ladies to bear the costs of reprinting the collected poems in the pamphlet in a revised edition. Rayalu is a native of India. The religious outlook in India is somewhat clouded. Rayalu remembers sending a small book of verses in 1911 which Hudson was kind enough to review.

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

The month of May has brought a glimmer of light to Ireland. Craig and de Valera have met to try and avert the misery which is falling on the innocent. Everyone seems to carry invisible offers from L. George. They are all rejoicing for the spiritual unity of Ireland has been secured. The nightmare is over and England, not Ireland, is the worse for it.

They have just received Hudson's check for $50 for their work in St. Patrick's School. They thank him very much. P.S. She encloses (no enclosure) letters from two of the school children. The little girl Joanna has made up her mind to become a nun and has been accepted.

Christitch, E(lisabeth O'Brien) Ben Hurst: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson has seen the best of her children. Did Annie tell him of the estrangement between Christitch and her sister? Janie's order does not allow the little ones to come to them that would humanize their aloofness. Annie's visit was a source of great happiness and comfort. No light, yet, in the quarter (of her son.)

Bickerstaffe-Drew, Father F(rancis) B(rowning) D.: Salisbury Plain, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He lists the "Letters from Home" which he has sent. This makes ten letters in all. He is pleased Hudson likes the letters. He thinks the resumed letters are much better. He always wrote very long letters to his mother. The plays can be returned.
