His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons: "I thank you for the copy of The
Explanation of the Baltimore Catechism which has just reached me. A
Religious spoke to me in very high terms of your book. I regard the
opinion as of great value."
Most Rev. M. A. Corrigan, D.D., Archbishop of New York: "I
congratulate you on the good which it is likely to do."
Most Rev. William Henry Elder, D.D., Archbishop of Cincinnati: "I
think the work will be a very serviceable one. I hope it will meet with
great success."
Most Rev. Thomas L. Grace, D.D., Archbishop of Siunia: "Your book
entitled An Explanation of the Baltimore Catechism supplies a want
which is generally felt by the clergy and others engaged in teaching
Catechism. Apart from the very satisfactory development of the
answers to the questions and apt illustrations of the subjects treated, the
additional questions inserted in your book give it a special value."
Most Rev. P. J. Ryan, D.D., Archbishop of Philadelphia: "Your
explanation of the Baltimore Catechism is excellent and must be of
very great service to teachers of Sunday schools and to all who desire a
clear exposition of Catholic doctrine, either for themselves or to
communicate it to others. We give the work our cordial approval."
Most Rev. William J. Walsh, D.D., Archbishop of Dublin, Primate of
Ireland: "I have had a copy of your admirable work for some weeks
past, and on several points it has been of very great use to me and to the
committee [a committee of professors of theology, moral as well as
dogmatic; priests of long and of wide experience in the work of

instructing children in the Catechism; experienced examiners of
children; accomplished scholars and writers of English; members both
of religious and of secular collegiate communities; and representatives
of the missionary priesthood, secular and regular, appointed to draft a
new Catechism]."
Right Rev. D. M. Bradley, D.D., Bishop of Manchester: "I am sure this
'Explanation' will be welcomed by the teachers in our schools and
indeed by all whose duty it may be to instruct others in the teachings of
the Church."
Right Rev. Thomas F. Brennan, D.D., Bishop of Dallas: "I like the
book very much and will not only recommend it to the priests and good
sisters of my diocese, but will also use it myself at catechism every
Sunday in the Cathedral. The list of questions and general index render
its use very easy."
Right Rev. M. E. Burke, D.D., Bishop of Cheyenne: "Your Explanation
of the Baltimore Catechism is excellent, and it supplies a much needed
means of useful and necessary catechetical instruction for our Sunday
schools. It will be found an excellent textbook for Catholic schools and
academies throughout the country and a most useful manual for all who
are engaged in the instruction of our children."
Right Rev. L. De Goesbriand, D.D., Bishop of Burlington: "I consider
your book, the Explanation of the Baltimore Catechism, as an
admirable work. Nothing can be found more clear, more satisfactory."
Right Rev. John Foley, D.D., Bishop of Detroit: "I congratulate you
upon producing a work so useful to those having charge of souls in
