Monahan, R.S.C.J., Mother Maud: Roehampton, (London, England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She thanks Hudson for his letter and the picture of St. Stanislaus. She still prefers the older picture, the one she encloses (no enclosure). The Weld story is not much known over there outside the family connections. They are the Welds of Lulworth Castle and their gift of Stonyhurst to the Jesuits was supposed to have won the Jesuit saint's protection for them. A very old Mother there told them of that day and the apparition. She was present when news was brought of Philip (Weld's) death.

Courson, Countess Barbara de: (Paris, France)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She is sending another paper on their "home apostles." Advancing years made her slow and heavy physically. As long as she has her daily Mass and her writing, she counts herself among privileged old people. Her son has a good post in Holland and comes to Paris often on business. His children are intelligent and work well in their respective colleges and convents. The "American Catholic Quarterly Review" of Philadelphia has owed her for a story for three years. She hopes Hudson's eyes and health do not trouble him.

Nesbitt, Marian: Clevedon, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

She has just finished the accompanying manuscript; it is not a subject often chosen. There was so much matter and she has not even touched on Pontifical Rings. The weather is still very bad in England.

Zaban, Bessie J.: Chapel Hill, (North Carolina)
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, (C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

She thanks Hudson for his letter of Feb. 18 in reference to their book "America and French Culture" by Howard Mumford Jones. One of Hudson's former students, Mr. Madden, told her that Hudson had been ill and that Father O'Donnell would take care of the review. She is grateful for Hudson's suggestion as to other review media.

Christitch, E(lisabeth O'Brien): London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana

In thanking Hudson for publication of her article and the summing up in Notes and Remarks, Christitch suggests that this number of the Ave Maria be sent to Governor Al(fred E.) Smith, to Ruth Hanna McCormick, to the Women's Lobby at Washington, and also to the League of Women Voters, as all are mentioned in the Ave. They will welcome Catholic approval of the things they are trying to do. The fine weather is approaching. What a disgraceful anachronism is the whipping Bishop (Lawrence Gaughran) of Meath, who says that stripes for the youth are as good as food!
