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

He thanks Hudson for the letter and check, and for reminding Father (Charles L.) O'Donnell, (C.S.C.) of the mass intentions for him. He is so-so. He is sorry Father Cavanaugh has been ill. Drew will write to Father O'Donnell in Rome and ask him to come to England. Drew is pleased at Hudson's commendation of "The Dean (of Roodminster"). Few Catholics realize what a man in Francis Crozier's position gives up.

O'Donnell, C.S.C., Father Charles L.: Rome, (Italy)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Father (George M.) Sauvage, (C.S.C.) met O'Donnell in Naples; they went to the home of Livio (Capece) Galeata. His mother is a queen of a woman. They gave her a copy of "A Little Soldier of Christ." They met Livio's oldest sister and her two children. O'Donnell promised that Hudson would send more copies of the Ave Maria which would contain the story. Later O'Donnell will see (Maria Louise) Han(d)ley.

Cooney, M.J.: Forbestown, Calif(ornia)
 to Father John Talbot Smith: Dobbs Ferry, N(ew) Y(ork)

Cooney thanks Smith for his letter of recent date. Smith has analyzed his situation in his apt simile of Midas and Tantalus. There is a Catholic church in Oroville and Father J.J. Hynes is parish priest. It is the country seat of Butte County. Forbestown is 15 miles east of Oroville. He will meet Smith if he comes to visit him. He outlines in detail the advantages of Smith's essay "Isle of Apple Blossoms." He tells of his pleasure in reading it and suggests that there be more writing of that kind for the non-Catholics instead of the descriptions of miracles and ghost stories that give the Catholics the reputation of being superstitious. He list some of the advantages of Oroville.

Hallinan, Bishop D(enis): Limerick, (Ireland)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

If Hallinan has used any words in his article about the commentary on the Bishop's Pastoral that Hudson does not like, he may change them. Regarding de Valera's two principles he wants the word "sane" changed to "true."
