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

The article by Degidon on the Little Ark is something to remember. Christitch has a deep wound of remorse for having left Ireland. Here she is in England, worrying about the Balkans, a son in a strange army, and two daughters keen on converting the Serbs! Janie is in an English convent. Annie has just returned from the Slav Reunion Congress in Czecho-Slovakia, full of enthusiasm. She went as reporter for the London "Times" and "Tablet". She brushed up on her Latin and addressed the assembly, the only woman present. Among the many friends she met was Father Grdy of Nish busy choosing a chalice with money provided by a Reverend Editor in America! Father Galen, O.S.B. from Vienna was present as were many Poles and the Orthodox Russians. Annie was in Denmark at Lady (Ishbel) Aberdeen's request for a Women's International and Christitch has gotten together an article on it for the Ave Maria. She did not, purposely, allude to Princess Marie's children who are not Catholics except one. Christitch was told that if she used her title of Baroness it would have opened to her the doors of English reviews. However, she is envious now of Miss Almedingen. Hudson will smile and say "a bona fide Baroness ousted by a pseudo-Princess."

Shuster, George (N.): Brooklyn, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

He finally decided to finish up the enclosed (no enclosure) and send it off. The convent described ought to be much better known. Their stay in New York has been very pleasant; work has occupied most of his time. The library is the best he has ever seen. His only breath of Notre Dame has been one Sister and the weekly Ave. He is somewhat astonished to see Hudson glancing with some approval at the Wisconsinite La Follette. Michael William new magazine The Commonweal is to make its appearance in November. Shuster has some chance of being closely connected with it, nevertheless, he is afraid of the venture. Its plans are quite vague, its policy indefinite, and its atmosphere slightly too much steeped in "convert" moods. Nor is Williams an educated man. They have collected quite a sum of money to its support. He asks Hudson to remember him to Father Healey and to tell him Shuster still recalls a promise he made him.

MacDonald, Bishop Alex(ander): Toronto, (Ontario)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

MacDonald will follow the present article with another to furnish incontrovertible evidence that the House which stands today and has stood for more than six centuries at Loreto without foundations is the House of Nazareth. MacDonald wishes to induce some of the pilgrims who go to Rome next year to go to Loreto.
