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

She wonders whether any Slav priests ventured to call on Hudson during their stay at Notre Dame, and whether Hudson was able to mention Serbia to His Grace of Chicago? Christitch has an article on the Papal Nuncio to Paris in the "Tablet" of August 6 and she wishes it would catch the eye of His Grace so that he will not get the impression that she only wants to further the national Slav cause. Her article in the "Tablet" after the war won her Monsignor Cerretti's interest. She is preparing to sail next month. The new American regulations make things more complicated, and because of this she will go through Canada. She must be back at her work in England by January. Her mother is in good health and active. Janie has come up from Royston and is very busy at Tyburn with a new calendar as the community is to become a regular Benedictine congregation. If Hudson can get "Happy Days in France" by Father Benedict Williamson she is sure he will like it.

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey was glad to get a word about Hudson from Mrs. Carter. Dorsey has come up with two more memoranda of the copyright. Isn't it fine having such a safe, sane man in the White House. (Woodrow) Wilson is her neighbor now. Dr. Ford, Wilson's friend, by the hard road of Presbyterianism has come into the Church. Wilson's lack of vanity is well illustrated in a limerick he improvised (and which Dorsey quotes). She is pulling herself together a bit, and all the pleasant things make her think of Notre Dame.

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

Hudson's note on Russia in the Ave Maria encourages her to submit the enclosed (no enclosure). She knows of many individual conversions among refugees of the upper classes, but it is from the peasants that they may expect the most. Hudson's "Notes and Remarks" remain always the best part of the Ave Maria. For her Hudson's infallibility as a politician is a comfort. Annie read with great delight Hudson's allusion to Cardinal Bourne, Shane Leslie, and others who take a great interest in her. Her life was mostly given to Serbia, but she thanks God for the opportunity to help her own land. She has just made a parcel of Ave Marias for Janie.

Connellan, P( ) L.: Rome, (Italy)
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Marie Halle told Connellan that Hudson recalled Connellan's name. Connellan was surprised and grateful that Hudson remembered him after 28 years. It brought to mind the evening at Notre Dame with Monsignor Satolli, Archbishop Redwood, Professor Edwards and others. Connellan sends a paper on the influence of Dante on art.

Barbe, R( ): Dusseldorf, (Germany)
 to (Father) Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Barbe encloses a few specimens (one enclosed) of his small religious pictures. If Hudson orders some does he wish each card marked with the country of origin. P.S. He is unable to supply the leaflets like the one Hudson sent.
