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

It was good of Hudson to write so promptly to Father Azlie at Waukegan. She got to London on June 29. Mother (Elisabeth O'Brien Christitch) is much better in health and is hard at work for Ireland. Her mother is eager that she would return to the United States in the fall and have another shot for the Belgrade church. Annie sails for New York in early September. She is glad Hudson will see His Grace in Chicago again in August. She has been writing to Monsignor Cerretti and telling him about the Slaves in America. She has an interview with Cardinal Bourne last week. Yesterday Christitch had lunch with the sister-in-law of Lord Midleton, who is impressed with President deValeira. She will go to Royston tomorrow and convey his greetings to Janie.

Rampe, W(illia)m F.: Rochester, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father J(ohn) Talbot Smith: New York, (New York)

He has received this week's Irish World and glanced over Smith's article, "Is Munsey Training for London." When Brisbane bought two Wisconsin papers and consolidated them into the Wisconsin News Rampe became a subscriber because he wanted to read Brisbane's editorials. He thinks that it was while Brisbane was the owner of the News that in a paragraph in the "Today" column he stated that shortly before the outbreak of the European war, Munsey gave a banquet in New York to Lord Northcliffe at which he told Northcliffe that he saw there the government of the United States before him without anyone really holding office. This Rampe says indicates that Munsey was one of Northcliffe's lieutenants. He remembers also an article in Munsey's Magazine in 1915 or 1916 in which Munsey talked of the great debt that England owed Smuts for allowing England to obtain control of Africa so that she could build the railroad from Cairo to the Cape. Rampe thinks that these articles would be read if reprinted in the Irish World. He recalls, without being sure, another article which said that there were no less than 360 publications British owned or British subsidized in the country. He thinks these and similiar articles appeared in Munsey's magazine.
