French cardinal; archbishop of Paris. Instrumental in the founding of the Mission of France and Worker Priest Movement.


ALS - Autograph Letter Signed, two pages, March 1949, one short year before his death.  Lengthy reply to a woman who was a journalist-author-lecturer and commenting on several points she has made. In part reads:   I wanted to give you a reasoned apply that would take note of your work...I have just finished reading it without skipping a single line...I have seen this enlightened Christianity that you have brought to life and the conviction you display in yourself that is the only possible factor for the recovery of the country, a factor which will find all its effectiveness in a healthy public school system...on all these points you have my support, even admiration...We will provide a complete translation of this letter.

SUHARD, Cardinal Emmanuel (1874-1949)
