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

The $200 Hudson mentions will be of material service. He would not let the letters go to any other periodical. He had an awful shock since he last wrote. He had three writs served on him and he was threatened with eviction. Fortunately, he was able to get money from the bank which now has to be repaid. Much will depend on the success or failure to dispose of the cinema rights on three of his books to a London and Roman Company. He and Frank were more impressed by the priests of the Holy Cross than any others they met in America. He thanks God to hear about Hudson's eyes. He had trouble with his sight when he had the measles. Sands of Edinburgh has given him seventy-five pounds for "Mariquita". He liked Archbishop Mundelein ever so much.

Handley, Marie L(ouise): Brooklyn, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Handley was sorry to hear of Hudson's illness. Hudson's story is still where it was but some night she will finish it. Enclosed Hudson will find a letter from Livio's mother (not enclosed). Handley would like the children of England to read Livio's story. Let the C(atholic) T(ruth) S(ociety) bring it out in England. The snapshot of Livio is wonderful. Handley has found out who Hudson's correspondent is. She was Pauline Capece Galeata, a niece of the Duca della Regina—now Sister M(ary) Gabriel (of the Incarnation.)

Blake, Joseph M.: Canton, Ohio
University of Notre DameSouth Bend, Indiana

Blake, President of the K. of C. Home Company of Canton, recently acquired property, the title of which must be cleared. In 1829, Bishop Edward Fenwick was deeded the property. An enclosed will shows Fenwick to have conveyed property to the incorporated Literary Society of St. Joseph. There is on record in Stark County no conveyance or any transfer of the property described in the will. Searches in the Archives of the Diocese of Cincinnati and of the Mother House, Delhi, Ohio, for the record of transfer proved in vain. Archbishop (Henry) Moeller of Cincinnati suggested that Blake write to Notre Dame, requesting a search for the record among the papers of Fenwick held by the University.

Daly, S.J., Father James J.: St. Louis, M(iss)o(uri)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Some people in the East are preparing a work on Catholic contributions to American life and have asked Daly to write a chapter. The Ave Maria has been an important agency; could Hudson direct Daly to some easily accessible account of the Ave Maria's distinguished career? Daly fears he is going to be guilty of some awful omissions for lack of knowledge.

Montgelas, Countess P.: Eicherhof-Bergen, Germany
 to Father Dan(iel) F(!) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Indiana

She sends a pamphlet in German by the League of Rhenish Women (not enclosed) and one by E.D. Morel (not enclosed) formerly written in English, on the results of the occupation by French colored troops in the Rhenish Provinces. These troops despite some reports have not been withdrawn. She encloses a sheet on British public opinion on the subject. They have no power to defend themselves and can only protest.

Courson, Countess Barbara de: (Paris, France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is anxious to know if her "Hermit of the Sahara" will appear. She was disappointed when she found the letter was addressed to Miss Halle. No doubt Courson's letter has gone to Halle. The sale of the book from which the "Hermit" is taken is most extraordinary; it is considered M. Bazin's masterpiece. If "Pere de Foucald" is accepted by the Ave Maria she will be quite resigned to the "Jesuits" going elsewhere.
