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

Hudson has always given J(ohn) A(yscough)'s books a boost but it always amused him to see the Ave Maria attributing the publications of "First Impressions in America" to John Lane. The remark on p. 712 of the Oct. number of the Catholic World is apropos of Professor Schuster's remarks on "the venerable and versatile John Ayscough." He thanks Hudson for his wish to publish "Dobachi" serially. Macmillan holds the American rights. He is at work on a novel about an Anglican Dean's conversion. Would Hudson care to issue it serially in the United States? As to "Letters From Home" he wishes Hudson would make an offer for book rights. He sold book rights in "Discourses & Essays" to Herder for a 7 percent royalty. Hudson could have the "Letters" for a little larger sum.

Reid, Gilbert: S.S. Kohokn Maru
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Reid was at the National Christian-Protestant Conference in Shanghai. He was not a regular delegate as he belongs to no mission. He is now living in Peking starting the International Institute while retaining the work in Shanghai. He is also starting an International Journal in Chinese. When Hudson knows of good being done in his Church he is to send it on to him. His lectures are now published in book form.
