O'Connor, Frances M.: San Mateo, California
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

O'Connor thanks Hudson for his letter and the one enclosed from Mrs. Dawson. They are distressed about the photograph Hudson speaks of as being reserved for the next edition of "An Awakening." If it is the one Father Alphonsus had enlarged she must say that her father (Father Fidelis Stone, C.P.) disliked it intensely. The hard stern face in the picture is uncharacteristic of her father. John Morse, Jr., Secretary of the Harvard Class of '60, told O'Connor that he thought her father the most beautiful boy he had ever seen in the old school days. O'Connor is sorry that Hudson's cold deprived her of the opportunity of meeting him in Normandy.

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

The manuscripts arrived a little later and he has sent them to London to be typed. Frank is no typist. These letters were sent over half a year ago and Hudson has sent no money for them nor even mentioned it. He thanks Hudson for the kind words about "First Impressions." Almost everybody in the United States did treat him kindly, and he was determined that no kindness go unrecorded in the book. P.J. Kenedy is at great pains to disabuse him of an exaggerated idea of the number of his American readers. That number would be smaller if it were not for the Ave Maria. He hopes being Provincial does not stop Father Cavanaugh from writing poetry.

Gardiner, Robert H.: Gardiner, Maine
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

1921 Dec. 31
Vickrey, C(harles) V.: New York, New York
 to FatherDaniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Vickrey thanks Hudson for the check and the editorial. Vickrey feels very close in fellowship with the Catholic Church through his association with such men as Hudson, Walter George Smith, Mr. Cuddihy, Archbishop Hayes and others. They appointed three new workers for overseas, all of whom are Catholics. Many of their most efficient workers are Catholics, as was Col. Haskell before his retirement from their work in the Caucasus. They are indebted to Hudson and many members of the hierarchy.
