Scholfield, J(ohn) F(aber): Fort Augustus, (Scotland)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Scholfield sent the two copies on to Compton MacKenzie. Scholfield sends an article on Dr. (Charles) Gore's book, "Anglo-Catholic Movement." He is prominent and revered, but in this case he will only very partially have his party with him. He represents the movement as it was at the beginning of the century. Now it is beyond that position and its program is more than ever a much improved Anglicanism. But the inevitable spirit of disunion that dominates the Church of England is becoming apparent among the "advanced" wing, and if it goes far, the power of that wing for good must almost disappear. (P.S.) Scholfield asks for a special memento for his second boy, Cuthbert Aloysius, who is at Osterley and goes on to the Scots College, Rome, that he may persevere in his mighty vocation.

Heuser, Father H(erman) J.: Philadelphia, (Pennsylvania)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It was a joy to read Hudson's words of felicitation. Heuser could not celebrate a Jubilee, for to give thanks to God is for him a daily debt, the same as it was 50 years ago at his ordination. With pastors and bishops it is different, for it means a strengthening of the bonds of loyalty to authority, and it is that way in a religious family, too. But Heuser has never had the courage to enter religion and he has had his own way. Hudson's own wish, to give out of the treasury of vowed holy poverty, is precious indeed. Heuser has received receipts of gifts given in his name, one for $500 to be used for masses in China, one for the education of two priests for the China Mission, a gift of over $3000. All his earnings from the "Ecclesiastical Review" go in that direction. He is proud of what Hudson says of St. Joseph's Workshop. The gracious way Hudson has spoken of Heuser's countrymen all through the late sad conflict in Europe, and ever since, has not escaped Heuser's attention.
