Rath, Father J. August: Middle Village, N(ew) Y(ork)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

The enclosed booklet (no enclosure) is an attempt of one who in bygone days spent two years hovering around the home of the "Ave Maria;" who often saw Hudson passing to and fro. On page twenty there is a reminder of identity with the famous school. The title of this book is in subtle opposition with masonic "light." It is important to read the beginning. The reverie's point is the Holy Eucharist as for instance on page 24. Rath would like to get Hudson's advertising rates.

Furtado, Philip: Bombay, (India)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will have received a copy of "A Goan Fiddler" by Joseph Furtado. From the first press opinions enclosed, it will be seen that the book is getting a very favorable reception. Philip's father appreciated the review of his "Lays of Goa" in the Dec. 30, 1922, "Ave Maria." The most remarkable point in his life is that he was born on the same day as St. Francis Xavier, first saint in his heart and William Wordsworth, first poet.

Palagi, P.C., Sister Maria Francesca: Florence, Italy
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

They are "poor Clares" of the strict 2nd Order of St. Francis. They are in absolute want of enlarging their convent, but their resources are scarce. Life is dear now-a-days in Italy and all of Europe and their old benefactors can give almost no help. They ask Hudson to help them in their want.

Doyle, C.SS.R., Father John J.: Athenry, Ireland
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Having been for some years on mission in the Philippine Islands, Doyle thinks a single record of his travels and work there may interest "Ave Maria" readers. The articles would supply information about the state of the Catholic Church there. He is in charge of a house of studies where young men are preparing for the Philippine as well as Irish missions. He hopes he is not impertinent in asking if Hudson pays suitable contributions and the probable rate of remuneration. A sample of the writer's work, "A Confraternity of the Holy Family for Men" can be found in "Ecclesiastical Review," September, 1918. (P.S.). The enclosed clipping (on divorce) may furnish some matter for Notes and Remarks.

Hughes, Father H(enry) G.: Great Yarmouth, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hughes sent two articles to the "Ave Maria"—one on St. Edmund and the other on the Church as an imitation or pattern of our Blessed Lord. In the latter he found since that big chunks occur in a sermon of his published some years ago in the Homiletic Monthly and is most likely in other collections of sermons put out by Wagner from time to time. The wording is too close for him to feel easy, so he asks Hudson to dispose of the article. P.S. The article on St. Edmund is quite safe.
