Spearman, Frank Hamilton: (Los Angeles, California)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Spearman encloses (no enclosure) an essay on Catholic Education. Notre Dame has honored Spearman and he is trying to justify the degree by this for a thesis. Clark, Lonie and Frank and their families are all well. Arthur is recovering from his serious breakdown and will try Philosophy this year at Mt. St. Michael's. How many times Spearman has regretted he did not choose the C.S.C. The Jesuits' discipline is for plough boys. (P.S.) His wife is fairly well and wishes to be remembered.

Dorsey, Ella Loraine: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dorsey hopes the manuscript she is sending will be acceptable. Fredericksburg is a beautiful spot. Falmouth is a vanished town on a now unnavigable river. The promoter is there, the motors dash to and fro laden with tourists, the capitalist would harness the falls and turn the historic mansions into hotels.

Marbury, Elisabeth: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Her publishers forwarded the cutting and Hudson's card. She is gratified to Hudson for giving "My Crystal Ball" so much space. She is not a professional writer, but seemed impelled in the instance of her biography to bear testimony to the truth.

Kaspar, S.J., Father Godfrey (A.): New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana

Kaspar sails for Europe on September 6. About October 1 he will land in Bohemia—a land dotted with shrines of Our Lady. Would Hudson accept a number of short sketches describing these Marian shrines, and short articles about the conditions of the Church in the New Republic of Czecho-Slovakia? He will spend at least a year there.

Hurth, (C.S.C.), Bishop P(eter) J(oseph): Vigan, Philippine Islands
 to Father (Daniel E. ) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hurth returns the letter of the Vicar Apostolic of French Togo, whose vicariate is the former Togo mission of the S.V.D. It has suffered terribly through the war and the subsequent changes. General de Castelnau on August 1, in the Echo de Paris, had the following: "Since May 11th, the 'Reich' has shown an ever growing arrogance…turned its back upon good faith and…Versailles, "ect. The Libre Belgique goes on preaching that Germany was the sole and only cause of the World War. The director of the coal mines, a real Catholic, felt scruples of conscience that the paper of his family should persist in such falsehoods and published a book over his own name—Leon Jourdain—constradicting Libre Belgique though he still mentions Prussian militarism and Belgian atrocities. How could he get altogether over these lies against the repeated assertions of Cardinal Mercier. The book is "Europe, whither are you going?" He had to get it published in Fribourg, Switzerland.
