Agnella, (C.S.C.), Sister M.: Washington, D(istrict of) C(olumbia)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Sister was grieved to learn that Hudson is none too well. She is putting on a Christmas Cantata called "The Greatest Gift," and may broadcast it. She attended mass at the Franciscan Monastery this morning and there is a Bishop from Korea, Japan there, and one also from Jerusalem. Hudson is to read the editorial comments in the "Catholic World." She will see Hudson again in the summer. Bishop (Thomas Joseph) Shahan is very happy here at Holy Cross.

They have asked their publishers, Burns, Oates, and Washbourne to see that another copy of "Mother Magdalen" is sent to Hudson. She is sorry the copies sent never arrived as she was looking for a word from Hudson or in the "Ave Maria."

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

The "Notes" are the crown of the "Ave Maria." Hudson's reminder that life holds graver problems than women's dress was timely. And his never-failing defense of poor maligned Germany. Those who fought her in Serbia never gave credence to English lies of "German iniquities." She remains respected and admired by all Serbs, whereas others seen at close quarters lost prestige. The English press corrupts the world and disseminates fraud. Wretched Ireland is an easy victim. Her clergy consider everything Protestant is naturally superior. Christitch went to Ireland this summer. The Bishops have lost caste and the people see their time-serving policy. The Cosgrave government is absolutely Freemason. Has Hudson read of the disgraceful coinage, designed by the convenient "Catholic" Sir A( ) Bodkin to satisfy the infidel (William Butler) Yeats. Christitch thinks a glorious effort was made for Al(fred E.) Smith. Here in South Kensington an excellent Member of Parliament is being turned out by the women because his wife divorced him for a mere infidelity. Parliament was held up last week by a Bill brought in by the six women members for providing the miners' children with boots. People are right in foretelling women in politics meant trouble. Annie (Christitch) is recovering from a grave attack of quinsy. Janie (Christitch) is in Belgium but in better health than here. Father Parsons of America came here two days, but Christitch did not feel well enough to see him. When will Hudson come?

Buehrle, Marie C.: Chicago, (Illinois)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Ancilla, Sister: Toledo, (Ohio)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Perhaps Hudson will have received Sister's message from Sister Jolanta. She is sorry Sister's visit was occasioned by so sad an event. Sister Florence had a beautiful death. Today Sister has speeded her "chickens" home for vacation. It will be good to be back with the nuns. Her little artist friend has taught them how to design, print and paint their Christmas cards. Miss Lauer did most of Sister's.

Chao, George B.: (Fribourg, Switzerland)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The condition in China is exceedingly well. It is Hudson's joy, too, because he loves China and the Chinese so much. Chao is happy he can see China become great and prosperous in his life. He sends a picture of the Chinese bishops taken in China before they proceeded to Rome for consecration.
