Fryar, John R.: Mitcheldean, England
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Hudson will recall Fryar as a writer when he mentions that the editor of "Extension Magazine" forwarded to Hudson his manuscript. He has been for some years past a contributor to the "Ecclesiastical Review." It is Fryar's idea that a biographical sketch of some of the exemplary female characters in the Bible would be a suitable series for the "Ave Maria." Fryar proposes to submit such a series. Should his suggestion meet Hudson's approval he will prepare to send an article on Mary Magdalen.

Tourneur, N( ): Thundersley, England
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

Has Hudson the manuscript "Christmas and Other Customs in Touraine?" It was sent with a manuscript dealing with Finchole Priory which Hudson used last autumn. Intimation of acceptance was sent on July 9. The check against "Ardoilen" has not been received. The mischievousness of postal workers and others causes much bother and worry here—as if these hard-up times are not bad enough.

Boyton, S.J., Father Neil: New York, (New York)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Has Boyton contributed enough stories to the "Ave Maria" to have his name added to the list of contributors on the back cover? He is working on a short story for the "Ave Maria."

Westbrook, T( ) S( ): Westgate-on-Sea, England
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Is the $18 check for which he encloses a receipt for "A Personality of the Counter-Reformation," or "A Great English Primate," or "A Glimpse of Catholic England?" For this serial, "The Spinner of Mischief" he has had no payment except one instalment of $50. He has not had any reply to his letter of last January, regarding publication in book form which he hopes Hudson will be able to do.

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

De Courson has had a trying winter, lost many friends and been surrounded by sickness. Various ailments have afflicted her physically and morally. The good news from Hudson was a ray of joy.

Marchal, Marie: Paris, (France)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

The death of Marechal (Ferdinand) Foch has sent a pang of sorrow through France and far beyond it. A snapshot of General (John J.) Pershing leaving the mortuary house shows intense regret for his dead comrade. Foch attended the funeral of Douglas Haig in London and that journey proved too much for his delicate health. Her cousin, Colonel ( ) O'Meagher, said Foch was a wonderful man. The greatest glory of Foch will ever be his virtue. Last summer a group of thirty scouts, led by Father Doncoeur, the well-known Jesuit, passed near Foch's manor. They were graciously received and he gave them a succinctrule: "Cultivate your intellect to understand, silence that sets reflection, and will to execute."

(1929) Mar. 25
Edmondson, Father W( ) F( ): Winnipeg, (Canada)
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Ind(iana)

This week's "Cur Sunday Visitor" quotes the "Ave Maria" as running a clipping from the "Southern Cross." The article is headed "Only in This Way Was the Middle Age Bible Chained." Edmondson wrote it, as a short editorial, in the fall of 1927, and it first appeared in the "Northwest Review." It has been amusing to watch its course since. Some 46 papers and magazines have used it. In three of these, credit has been given to the "Northwest Review." He wonders where the "Southern Cross" got it. Apparently their "comment" Hudson quotes was credited to no one. Edmondson looks forward to the "Ave Maria," because of its remarkably consistent high standard. Hudson is not to take any action in regard to the Bible Chaining story. It soon should be played out. (P.S.) How is the 1929 football team shaping up?
