Dowd, Jerome: Norman, Oklahoma
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Dowd appreciates Hudson's sympathetic notice of his book, "The Negro in American Life." He does not know a solution to the Negro problem but hopes to help people approach it in the proper spirit.

Reuter, Father F(rederick A.): Zanesville, Ohio
 to Father Daniel (E.) Hudson, C.S.C.: Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

Reuter sends a list of the selections he would like to use for his new work on the Holy Hour. The compositions are all unsigned and he does not think there will be difficulty in getting Hudson's permission. P.S. Father Cahalan died a week ago and Reuter is holding down the job of chaplain at the hospital till the Bishop appoints a new man.

Atteridge, A. Hilliard: London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Atteridge has finished a history of one of the divisions that fought in the great war. This with his work for the Catholic Times occupied his time in the last two years. He is sending the first part of an article, "A Famous Little Country," dealing with Catholic Normandy. At Lisieux as guide for a tour, Atteridge once had an interview with Mere Marie du Sacre Coeur, the sister of St. Therese. Before the middle of July there will be news of the Centenary Celebrations of the Conqueror, which makes his subject topical. They will have a public procession of the Blessed Sacrament in Isleworth tonight. In 1925 and 1926 it was on a small scale and its legality was uncertain. The Act of Parliament of last autumn makes it legal. There will be many public processions today and next Sunday throughout England.

Treat, Clara E(lizabeth) Mrs. Stuart R.: Auburn, New York
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Treat is used to the intuition some priests have for it was through a letter asking for something quite apart from the Faith that a priest in a small village quite a distance from Auburn found that she needed help. She has used Father Raymond Lawrence's book of experiences under the title "The Journey Home" to explain to others why she is no longer an Episcopalian. She hopes to meet Lawrence before summer is over. Since his conversion his mother became a Catholic, too, and Treat visits her often. Had she the gift, Treat could write an interesting account of her experiences. Treat married into a Baptist family. She felt she'd starve spiritually with the Baptists and she returned to the Episcopalians, to be led to the "High Church" life, and that was the beginning place to learn the true Church. Her wanderings are a gift in experience - she knows why she is a Catholic. She is praying especially now to be the means of showing the true Church to the Monk at Holy Cross (Reverend Orune?) who showed her the "High" Church life of Episcopalians. He is closer to the Church than anyone she knows and there have been conversions from Holy Cross before. Treat hopes Hudson likes the story of the "Gentyle Storke" (enclosed).
