Carberry, Joseph Rochester, (New York)

to (James Alphonsus McMaster) (New York, New York)

Carberry has seen a notice in the Freeman's Journal of the arrival in New York, of the Very Rev(erend) Father Carberry. His son, while traveling in the West, met an Irish priest, who upon discovering his name was Carberry, told him about Father Carberry, who was his educator in Ireland. The priest stated that Father Carberry was from Meath. This makes him (Joseph Carberry) anxious to know Father Carberry's parentage. He requests McMaster to send him Father Carberry's address, so that he can write to him. James Carberry, a native of the Conboyne Co(unty), Meath, who died in Dublin, was his (Joseph Carberry's) father, and he had an uncle, Lawrence Carberry, living in 1850 when he came to America. He would be proud if Father Carberry were his relative, but it is hardly his luck to have him turn out so. Still, he feels there is nothing like trying.

She writes to thank him in compliance with a request from the "original wearer of the Hair". She encloses a note from Miss Bailey of Howard Grove,(______), the most intimate friend of the "wearer", through whom Miss Cassidy has forwarded the sums she received. The note can best express the "wearer's" appreciation of McMaster's kindness. Miss Bailey, who is engaged as governess in a family which is coming North, may offer her share of thanks herself if timidity does not prevent her. She was a friendly acquaintance of Stonewall Jackson's, and is, like him, an ardent Presbyterian.

There is cause for strong feeling between the Herald and Bonner's New York Ledger. The Herald excepted, no newspaper in the United States has done more to debase and destroy morality.

Charlanel, N. Seminary of Three Rivers (Three Rivers), Quebec, (Canada)

to (James Alphonsus McMaster) (New York, New York)

In compliance with McMaster's desire expressed in his newspaper of March 17th relative to the translation of the missal into vulgar languages for the use of the faithful, Charlanel calls his attention, though perhaps too late, to the following decree of Alexander VII: He has heard with great sorrow that in France certain sons of perdition seeking to corrupt souls with novelties and condemning the Church's sanctions and practice have madly dared to translate the Roman missal, written for so many centuries in Latin, and approved by long use, into the vulgar French and to publish and distribute it to people of any order and sex, thus casting down and trampling down the majesty of the most holy rites conserved in Latin and exposing their dignity to the crowd. Being responsible for the vineyard of Christ he must prevent the growth of thorns of this sort in it and as far as possible uproot them; inasmuch as this novelty deforms the eternal beauty of the Church and produces disobedience, rashness, boldness, sedition, schism, and other evils, he abhors it. Hence this French missal no matter by whom written and no matter how written hereafter and distributed be, in the proper manner and with certain knowledge and mature deliberation, perpetually downs and interdicts as also the printing, reading or possession of it. This holds for all Christians of either sex regardless of rank. Violaters incur by this order excommunication in the broad sense. All who possess this missal or into whose possession it shall come must turn it over to the ordinaries or inquisitors to be burned. Given at Rome at St. Mary Major"s under the seal of the Fisherman, January 12, 1661, sixth year of his pontificate." Charlanel continues: McMaster can gain a more thorough knowledge of the matter from Dom Gueranger's Institutions Liturgiques and from Abbe Maurel's course of Liturgy, on page 16 of which if found the Pope's answer to the Bishop of Paris, June 6, 1851: the translators must desist from their work and the printing and publication of versions of this sort must be forbidden. Charlanel is happy if he has rendered McMaster any service in his cause which is actuated by principles which ascertain a people's happiness. He is confident in McMaster's success. Respects. (P.S.) He does not want his name made public. He is just finishing theology and belongs to the diocese of Portland, Maine. Bishop Bacon, who adopted him two years ago, might not be pleased to see Charlanel's name before the public. He would have done thus sooner had he known it.

C(hristitch), E(lisabeth O'Brien) (London, England)

to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C. (Notre Dame, Indiana)

(Page) 2. People were interested in the "Women Legislators" article. Annie (Christitch) took it to Mrs. Lumsden to help the plea for forming a branch of Lady Aberdeen's International Council in Spain. Mrs. Lumsden gave it to the Queen of Spain who was there just then, but the Queen can do little now. Catholics have no such League, but English, French and other Catholic women introduce Catholic principles in other associations. But Spain holds aloof. Thus all forward movements are led by free-thinkers. Hudson is no doubt aware of the tragic fate of the Spanish dynasty. The third boy has now developed hemophilia. Alfonso (XIII)'s last hope is the fourth son, as yet immune. Christitch was shocked at a Spanish priest talking openly of annulment, ignorance of the disease being a possible plea. All this is in strict confidence. P.S. Christitch has received a cutting from Captain (Francis) McCullagh containing the resolution of N.C. Women against Calles' persecution, filed with President Coolidge, and signed by Mary G. Haws.

Conrady, (Father) L.L. Kalawao, Molokai, Hawaiian Islands

to Henry F. Brownson (Detroit, Michigan)

He has never forgotten Brownson"s kind invitation when he was in Detroit. He was glad to have part of the works of (Orestes A. Brownson), which he reads in preference to other books. He now reads the Bible, New Testament, and the works of Brownson, the great, great man, whom he heard called long ago the master mind of America. Brownson is not known enough. Saints are not honored in their own country and in their own times. It was the same with Father Damien (De Veuster). Father Damien begged Conrady to come to his assistance and to replace him. He was not with Damien more than three months when his spiritual brethern of the Society of Picpus, (Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary) tried to get rid of him (Conrady). They tried again after Damien's death; the only reason they had was that he did not belong to the Picpus. But he did not come in haste, he took 12 years to come and had been told by Fr. D(amien) and his superiors that he would be received with open arms. But some took offense upon seeing his name in print and he was forbidden to publish even a letter; if he should, he would have to leave; it is the rule yet. After the Bible he knows of no work in the English language that can compare with that of Orestes Brownson.
