Aelen, Archbishop J(ohn): Madras, India
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Since he returned from Europe in 1922, Aelen's health has not been of the best. He is still working on the Seminary and it will be finished in about two months. Altogether he has twenty-five students. An Indian priest was ordained in April and two more will be ordained in December. He is very short of priests and many people are under instruction. Headway is being made amongst the caste people. How is he going to find the means to keep their work going; he asks Hudson for a little assistance.

Chao, George B.:
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, C.S.C. and Father (Kerndt M. Healy) Healey, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Chao thanks Hudson and Healy for their letters. Although he is separated from Notre Dame, he is still very much interested in what is happening there. The situation in China is precarious. It is patriotism and nationalism which were stimulated by the long years of foreign pressure, not Bolshevik at all. The Shanghai accident, British officers shot six students, is simply an act of murdering. Chao can give evidence that Great Britain manufactured many false news reports for English and American papers. He asks Hudson to give the enclosed (no enclosure) article, "Littlemore," to Brother Alphonsus, C.S.C.

Stewart, Charles D.: Hartford, Wisconsin
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Stewart thanks Hudson for sending him proof. He is pleased to know that his article in the Atlantic Monthly was considered worthy to be quoted. He will show the proof to Father (Joseph C.) Hartman of St. Kilians, a crony of his, though he does not belong to his church. He encloses (no enclosure) a post card or two showing his surroundings near the Carmelites of Holy Hill.

Waggaman, Mary T.: (Washington, D.C.)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Waggaman encloses a receipt for payment for "Ben Regan". She also encloses a clipping from a Washington paper. It is not often she finds her own opinions expressed so sympathetically as by J.E.S. She has had favorable reports about "Ben Regan" from her friends and hopes they will be frank enough to tell her when to stop for she is getting very close to four score now. She is starting another story for Hudson, however, and is grateful for his pleasant notice of "Barbara's Marriage." (The enclosed clipping compliments) Father Hudson on his golden jubilee as a priest and as editor of the Ave Maria.

Dowling, Victor J.: New York, (New York)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dowling picked up this item from an English catalogue. It interested him because it was written by his friend Maurice (Francis) Egan in aid of Notre Dame. It was dedicated to Hudson and bears the bookplate of Eugene Field. Hudson must be very happy to have seen his admired model, the Cure d'Ars about whom they had the interview, raised to the altar.

Stewart, Charles D.: Hartford, Wisconsin
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Stewart is again pleased to receive a proof from the Ave Maria with quotation from the Atlantic. He saw in Who's Who that Hudson became editor of the Ave Maria in 1875. The Evolution sensation in the newspapers seems to be subsiding; the Catholic clergy have acted with dignity and good sense. Maybe someday Hudson will make a pilgrimage to Holy Hill. One time Stewart and his wife went up the hill; there was a blind organist, no doubt of St. Michael's Servite Church in Chicago whom Stewart made familiar with the new statues.

Connellan, P( ) L( ): Rome, (Italy)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Connellan thanks Hudson for the check. He sympathizes with Hudson in having to write by night light; Connellan suffers from a like complaint. Cataract was formed on his eyes and an oculist of Roman renown left his eye with a fragment in it. Shortly after the doctor was placed in a madhouse where he soon died. To this is added Connellan's burden of years. In looking through some old Pilots, Connellan found a letter describing the visit of the Apostolic Delegate to Notre Dame in September, 1893. (He names many who were present.) In the morning they visited Father E(dward) Sorin, (C.S.C.) who though aged and feeble, was cheerful.
