Suzanne,Sister Marie: Makogai, Fiji Islands
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister received Hudson's letter with $100 and this morning another with $104. Amongst their lepers are some true saints, the best of them being an old man of 52 from Australia. He spends his time praying and thanks God because through his disease he has found true faith. There are now 12 Sisters on the staff and nearly 400 patients. (Sister?) Mary Philomena is much better and is now able to do quite a bit of work amongst the leper girls and women.

Bruce, W(illia)m Cabell: (Washington, District of Columbia)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Bruce thanks Hudson for the extract of Bruce's speech in the Senate on Prohibition. He had a thin audience because the Drys on both sides are attempting to suppress discussion of Prohibition except for measures proposed by them. Perhaps it was through Hudson's publication that Bruce denounced the Ku Klux Klan a few years back. Bruce encloses a copy of his speech on "Prohibition Enforcement."

1926 Dec. 30
Wilby, Noel Macdonald: Brighton, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Wilby thanks Hudson for his kind letter about her story "Jean Cameron—And Others." Her father died when she was a small child and she and her mother went to the Carmelite Convent at Chichester for eight years, from age eleven to nineteen. Her first story was published when she was fourteen. Then they went to a college, a branch of Stella Viae, where her mother ran the Home Farm. Two years later, they moved in with a widow for eight years. Six months ago, this eccentric friend decided to give up her house and join her sister. To make matters worse, three years ago this woman begged them to adopt a little orphan cousin of theirs, a child of only nine weeks old. Now he is three and a half and they are suddenly thrown on the world without a farthing. They are praying that the little boy become a priest. Her story was written when things were extra black and she took refuge in a church, where Monsignor Wallis' cat sat on her lap while she said the rosary, hence the story.
