Bardstown, Kentucky

to Bishop Edward Fenwick
of Cincinnati, Ohio

Does not believe the present order at St. Rose's can last a year. Appeals to Fenwick as a Dominican for St. Rose's. Cannot perform the ordinations gratis because of the need of his diocese. Wants Fenwick to care for St. Rose. (Added note) Mentions Mr. Hazelton and Sister Benedicta's arrival at Bardstown.

Chiaveroti, Father Charles L(ouis)
St. James, (Louisiana)

to Father John Timon, (C.M.)
(Barrens), Missouri

He received Timon's letter of November 10, 1828. The description of the misfortunes of such a respectable community aroused in him much commiseration. But so hard is his present situation that commiseration and pity are the only means he has of acknowledging the call for relief. He is now under may a debt, from which he sees no way of emancipation. Chiaveroti is not yet sufficiently acquainted with the members of his congregation to stir them to make pious contributions. One of his confreres informs him that this means of raising money for the poor had been tried by himself not far from this parish, without success. He sends respects to Father Odin and to all at the Seminary.

Wheeler, Father M.J.
Rome, (Italy)

to (Father John Baptist Purcell)
(Mt. St. Mary's, Emmitsburg, Maryland)

Wheeler asks Purcell's forgiveness for his not writing in so long. Father Egan can tell how many times Wheeler talked of taking up his pen and convincing Purcell of his obligations. Wheeler traveled 1200 miles over the Alps through Piedmont, Turin, Milan, Bologna, Loretto, over the Appenines, which Father Egan has related to Purcell in greater detail. When Wheeler beheld the cathedral of Milan, he learned for the first time, that there was on earth such a monument to the glory of religion. Equally vain any endeavor to represent to Purcell the majesty of Saint Peter's. Egan has also mentioned that they saw Leo XII. In many instances (Egan's) health prevented him from rambling with Wheeler. H. Conwell Bishop of Philadelphia is still in the city and occupied with the Propaganda in unravelling his knotty case. His excellent health is still with him and Wheeler hopes next year to attend him to the United States. Egan sends his respects to Fathers Bruté, McGerry, Hickey and the dear Brethren and especially to Father Xaupi.

Leo XII, Pope
Rome, (Papal States)

(to members of the Leopoldine Association
(Vienna, Austria)

Although Pope Leo has suffered much from great evils in his pontificate which have tended to destroy the Catholic religion and to lead others into error, he has also had some joys which have lightened his burdens. This, he has heard recently, with joy, of the institution in the kingdom of Francis I of Austria of the "Leopoldinen-Stiftung" which has for its purpose sending out missionaries, which is a most laudable cause. Having been asked for privileges for members of the society he grants them a plenary indulgence on the usual conditions on the day they enter the society and also a plenary indulgence on Dec. 8, and on the feast of St. Leopold and once a month, if, besides the ordinary conditions, they have recited during the previous month each day the Hail Mary and the invocation of St. Leopold, and prayed in a public church for his intentions. He also orders this letter to be properly notarized and printed and distributed under his seal. (Apparently in the papers of Bishop Frederick Rese).

Lutz, C.M., Father Joseph Anthony
St. Louis, (Missouri)

to (Father John Timon, C.M.
Barrens, Missouri)

A few days ago he received a letter from the Bishop assigning to him the parishes of Prairie du Rocher and Kaskaskias and the surrounding areas. He would rather go to the people in the river bottoms who have fevers or to the village of Cahokia or to the Indians(?) since there are already 4 priests in St. Louis where 3 suffice. He is not joking. He makes his proposition and will accept the Bishop's decision as the Bishop is better informed. The Bishop knows that Father (Louis) Dusaussoy has gone and that Father (Regis) Loisel has in mind to leave St. Louis and go to the seminary or to one of the villages. He himself hopes to return to the missions for 5 or 6 weeks to live, from May 28 to the middle of July, when he will return to St. Louis. This the Bishop must not know or he would not have given him care of these two parishes. He will therefore expect a new letter from the Bishop.
P.S. James Timon will be with Father Saulnier on May 11 at Louisville. He has heard that Timon's brother-in-law Mulligan has died. Father Dusaussoy goes to Baltimore on the vigil of Palm Sunday with Father Van Quickenborne. If a man dies unrepentant is he to be buries in holy ground? (This letter seems to be in very bad Latin).

Seton, Catherine Josephine
Florence, (Italy)

to Mrs. Julianna Scott
Philadelphia, Penn(sylvania), U.S.

Josephine expresses her hope that Mrs. Scott whom she calls "Aunty," has received her letters from Europe. She wrote her from Leghorn of the disagreeable voyage. Then of their enjoying the society of friends in a most uninteresting city of Italy, where they remained through a season of unsettled yet pleasant weather until March. Then they left for delightful Florence where they stayed for the spring instead of passing on as they had intended, to Rome and Naples. William (Seton) has applied for an extension of his leave. If he gets it they plan to stay in Europe until May of next year. They will go to southern Italy later on towards winter. She says time flies so fast that she must make her stay longer and get the most out of it. Otherwise the long voyage will have been scarcely worthwhile. The longer stay will restore her constitution. She is occasionally homesick and fears she does not always appreciate the curiosities surrounding her. She likes roaming but not the inconveniences. She is discouraged from writing her friends because they answer so rarely. They will remain at Florence three months until July when they will go to the Lucca baths, a cool resort. Florence is romantic. The gallery is much to be admired with its antique and modern chef d'oeuvres. She has been enlightened as to the perfection of painting and sculpture. Niobe and her children is a more interesting statue than Venus. She describes the Grand Duke palace. She saw the Duke and Duchess enter the Cathedral Easter Day. He does not look like a hero or prince but is thin, pale, undistinguished, and unoffensive. The Duchess has a delicate face and is amicable and charitable. The drive is a gorgeous equipage with six horses, pontillions and outriders. The Duke alone drives six. Prince Borghese has only four. "The old lump of mortality" drives about with his dog beside him. She imagines the poor Italians would wish to be his dog. They are utterly subservient to the great and have little "moral energy of independence of character." The Museum is very complete, featuring the human anatomy in wax and a specimen of everything created. There are many beautiful churches. The Medicci chapel is a kind of "masoleum" (sic). The church of Santa Croce contains monuments of Galileo, Michaelangelo, Alfieri, Michaevelli, etc. The walks and rides of the city are delightful, of which the Caseina and the Boboli are most famous. Beautiful gardens attached to some of the Palaces are open to the public. For one with an easy fortune it is a charming and interesting place to reside. She goes to opera and takes lessons on the guitar and song accompaniment. She is however entirely occupied with my Italian master. They frequently see Mr. William Cox and family. The Cox children speak French and Italian. One of the children, her namesake, Julia, resembles her. Josephine is attached to the Cox family. She is glad she decided be visit Europe but the treasures of a nabob could not induce her to remain there. She looks forward to their return. She asks Mrs. Scott about her health. She supposes she is going on her summer excursion to Long Branch. She heard Elizabeth C. was coming to Europe and will be pleased if she does. She hopes she received the letters she wrote her after her marriage in care of her mother. She asks for Mrs. J. Scott and family. William often thinks of little Maria and their Long Branch adventures. She asks Joanne to give her affectionate regards to the Setons and family and to remember her to her friends, to Mr. Mariloe and Emmy James must be almost on his way home. She asks Mrs. Scott for a letter and speaks of their mutual love.
P.S. She suggests that the letters for her be sent to Leghorn in care of Lieutenant Seton whence they will be sent wherever she is.

Nuncio Apostolic at Vienna, (Austria)

(Traveling in Europe)

The Nuncio has heard that the services of the church are being conducted in the vulgar language in Wurtemberg. He has also heard that Bishop (John) Kelle(r) of Rottemburg has become involved in a scandal and that the Lutheran judges of the palace are using the circumstances to criticize the Catholic clergy. He wishes (Rese) to investigate these matters and see if they are true. Rese is to notify him of what he finds, and he thanks him for his efforts beforehand. He trusts that Rese will use circumspection and prudence. His answers need not contain names but can merely refer to the matters in this letter according to their order.

Petit, Didier
Lyon, (France)

to (Father Gabriel Richard)
(Detroit), Michigan

Petit had proposed to write to richard for some time in answer to his latest letter but he has been despoiled of all such material for the Annales. It is useless to say how satisfactory the second letter was with its details of Richard's work. They now understand his position and for proof they have sent a sum to Bishop (Edward Dominic) Fenwick asking him to set aside a special part of it for Michigan. Richard will, however, receive another like sum because the allocations of last year have been delayed. He has been waiting also for the departure of Father (Frederick) Rese to give him this sum, but tired of waiting, he has sent it through London. Petit felicitates Richard on having with him Father (Stephen Theodore) Badin and asks to be remembered to him. He asks Richard to announce to Badin also an addition to his family whom he has called Francis Xavier, although he finds the size of his family considerable for him who has yet to make his fortune. Petit asks again that Richard write him a detailed letter about the savages and add some anecdotes which can be used in the Annales to excite interest in the missions. He asks about the erection of the bishopric of Michigan. If Richard has heard anything, Petit would like to hear it. They have urged Richard for the post and hope that their indiscretions will do no harm. They would like to know the difficulties in the way of the appointment, (Richard notes this no. 3, answered Oct. 8, 1829).

Cappelari, Maurus Cardinal Prefect
Rome, (Papal States)

to Bishop Edward (Dominic) Fenwick, (O.P.)
Cincinnati, (Ohio)

Cappellari [Cappelari] acknowledges Fenwick's letter of April 8 in which he exposed the impudence of John Baptist Fauvel and his evil conduct. Cappelari is not surprised since Fauvel while spending 3 years in Rome was a deceitful pilgrim and although he begged to be advanced to the priesthood under the title of missionary, he could not obtain this from the Sacred Congregation. While the conduct of the man deserves condemnation, the Sacred Congregation thinks that he should not receive a general excommunication but that it suffice that the bishop of the diocese decree his excommunication. This document can be used, however, in case Fauvel pretends to be directly under the Apostolic see. In this letter Cappellari includes a rescript of the Holy Father concerning the faculty of dispensing the Dominicans from the obligation of wearing their habits.
Signed by Castruccio Castracane as Secretary, No. 17. ( The enclosure is as follows).

1829 Aug. 2

Castracane, Castruccio Secretary
Rome (Papal States)

to Bishop (Edward Dominic) Fenwick (O.P.)
Cincinnati, (Ohio)

Fenwick as bishop of Cincinnati and Comissarius Generalis of the Dominicans in the Province of St. Joseph begs the Holy Father for the faculty of dispensing the Fathers from the obligation of wearing their habits outside their convents and of wearing the black soutane of the secular priests even in sacred functions. This external uniformity is desirable not only to prevent derision but also because of poverty, since the Dominican habit is of costly material and so easily soiled. In the Audience of Aug. 2, the Holy Father Pius VIII ordered Castrane as secretary to tell Fenwick that the dispensation is granted notwithstanding the apostolic constitutions of the Order to the contrary, so long as he lives. There is no charge for this dispensation.

Rome, Italy

to Bishop Edward Fenwick
Cincinnati, Ohio

He has laid before the Sacred Congregation the requests of Fenwick. He hopes for an early reply. He wishes that a new establishment be made without destroying the old. He regrets that he cannot send Fenwick a young man for the missions. An Irish Dominican, a possible fugitive, has asked permission to give missions in New York. He leaves the matter to Fenwick. Fenwick can have men for the Irish province of the Dominicans if that province can afford them. (Fenwick began a translation on the inside pages of the letter).

Montgomery, Father S(tephen) H.
Springf(iel)d, O(hio)

to Bishop Edward Fenwick
Baltimore, Maryland

Montgomery thinks it best to forward this letter immediately, that Fenwick may give directions to Father (Samuel M.) Smith that Fenwick may deem proper. It appears to Montgomery Smith's views are correct and it may be well to give him the power he solicits. Montgomery is on his way to Canton and will go direct from there to Sandusky as directed previous to Fenwick's leaving home. Could Montgomery hear from Fenwick in time, he would aid Smith for a few days, but dislikes to interfere unless Fenwick should direct it. All go on well at Cincinnati. Montgomery will write to Fenwick from Canton.

Smith, Father S(amuel) M.
Monroe, (Michigan)

to (Bishop Edward Fenwick)
(Cincinnati, Ohio)

Smith writes for instructions concerning a dispute in the parish about building the church. Smith, disgusted with the behavior of the lower marguillers, wishes Fenwick's approbation to carry out a reformation. Mr. Navarre, one of the Marguillers acts and speaks as if he were the sole rule, arbiter and manager of whatever appertains to Church affairs. He has said, in Smith's presence, he will not permit certain ones to enter the new church after its completion, and he will have Mr. Caldwell and Mr. Cicotte yoked together and dragged. Smith spoke to some of the respectable characters in the Congregation, Messers Caldwell, Mitt, Cicotte, and others, who urged Smith to take control of the Church affairs completely. Unless Smith does, they will never consent to have anything to do with the church below. Now is the moment to make the change. Then Mr. Navarre will never again have the power of taking a priest by the collar and threatening to kick him out of doors; or insult another as he did Father (Jean) Bellamy at the altar. Father (Stephen Theodore) Badin has made a rule which Smith wishes Fenwick's advice on, which is that nothing which is received for High Mass, and Internments is appropriated to the funds of the Church. By Father Badin's regulation the priest receives for a High Mass $1 and the singer .50. For a burial .50 for the priest and. 25 for the singer who assists him. By the old rule, $5.87 1/2 were charges for a High Mass, of which sum $1 for the priest, $4 for the Church, and the .87 1/2 for the singer. For a burial $4 of which $1 was for the priest, the rest for the Church. Badin thought the old charges exorbitant. Smith wants to know what regulations Fenwick has on such matters at Cincinnati. Smith spoke to the people at Detroit, on the reasons for his placement at Monroe; they were satisfied with Smith's explanation. Mr. Caldwell is determined to bring a suit in Chancery against Father (Gabriel) Richard about the lot he appropriated to the Church. If Richard is prevailed upon to relinquish his claims it would prevent scandal. Smith's progress among the Protestants is encouraging. Mrs. Adams, the wife of the doctor, has joined the Church, also Mrs. Doyle and Mrs. Clark come to confession tomorrow. Several others are on the way.
P.S. Smith sends his regards to Montgomery, and the other priests of the Seminary.
(P.P.S.) Smith forgot to give Fenwick the outline of the rules of the house. The Sisters are to observe silence. He lists the day's schedule. (In Fenwick's handwriting): Fenwick is sorry he hurt (Smith's) feelings. He is not alarmed or surprised by the rule. He objects to the word monastery and vows. He approves however of Sisters and Female school, but not however of monastery and solemn vows. Simple vows with the permission of the bishop are valid and proper.

He received Timon's letter of August 16. Timon's explanations regarding his prelate's subscriptions for The (United States Catholic) Miscellany are quite satisfactory. The uncertainty of the mails often necessitates the sending of second copies to subscribers. Since he commenced writing Barry has received a letter from his Bishop (John England) who is in The Miscellany/ If other clergymen in the Union would transmit such reports, the scattered members of the Catholic family would receive edification from their perusal.

Note about certain things Purcell should do. He could have added much concerning poor Jan Sherry, his knowledge of the law and of the banks of Maryland;

3 - the respect of the girls and Sisters;
4 - his kind heart. Purcell needs consolation. Mary will be his consolation but he must look for prudence.

3 - he must draw up the rules and rule;
4 - he advises less of women;

Bruté is himself harmless in his own position which was given him when Bishop (Jean) John Dubois left. Better if Mr. Jameson goes to the room and desk of Mr. McGerry.

According to Richard's wishes, the Superior Council at the suggestion of the central Council of the Association of the Propagation has included Richard in the allocation of funds for this year as in that of the preceding year. The Council expressed this intention that Fenwick share with Richard the allocation of 1828 and has allocated for him in 1829, 7,500 francs for the propagation of the faith in Michigan. They hope he will accept this as a testimony of their interest. The writer (who does not sign his name to this duplicate) wishes to be remembered to Father (Stephen Theodore) Badin.
