Letters by the Brother Founders of Notre Dame, 1841-1849-

Series:

Leipnitz & Partner and Georg Klawitter

In the first decade that the French Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross worked in the United States, they wrote letters back to their Superior General, Basil Moreau, in Le Mans. They also wrote to Edward Sorin at Notre Dame when, for one reason or another, they were away from their primary foundation in northen Indiana. Of the hundreds of letters written between 1841 and 1849, two hundred exist from twenty writers, reflecting the hardships and joys the pioneer Brothers experienced in a new world.
