w.th the motto: suum eulquo (to
arh his own.)
I was bound particularly closuly
sll my life to Cardinal ICopp, Prince
1 shop of Iircslnu. He always nerved
m loyally, no that my relationship
to him was most trusting, Of. much
lue to rn was his mediation In
dealings with the Vatican, where he
stood In high honor, although he
championed absolutely the pcrman
vfomt of view.
' Frirnilslilp for I'opu XIII.
Trobably little h known by tho
general public of the friendly, trust
l.ig relationship that existed between
me and J'ope Leo XIII. A prolate
wlio itns close to him told mo later
that I had won tho confidence of
th" pope on my .first visit by the
absolute franknera which 1 showed
toward him and with which I told
Mm thtnga which others Intentional
J? kept from his ears.
Hecoptlons by the pope were con
duced with fremendous pomp. Swiss
ar.1 Noblo Guards, In brilliant uni
forms, servants, chamberlains, nnd
(i i leslastlcal dlgnltarlos, were pre-
it In largo numbers a miniature
representation of tho might of tho
It man Catholic church. i
After I hud troversed tho courts.
hVl and drawing rooir.rt, In which
ail hmo men had arrayed them
elves, I seated myself opposite the
pope himself, In h!a little, one-wtn-dowod
study. The distinguished
gentleman, with tho tins, noble-featured
old face, whose eyes guzrd
plerLlngly at his visitor, mado u deep
Imprrrlon upon me. V dlscmwed
many timely subjects. I was greatly
pltiacd that the pope spoke ap
preciatively nnd gratefully of his
pi-Ulon ocupled In Gurmuny by the
Catholic religion and Its adherents,
adding tho assurance that he, for his
part, would contribute toward hav
ing tho Gormnn Cat holies yield to no
other Germans In love for their
fatherland and In loyalty.

frlcndllnefw toward mo whenever he
could. For Instance, on tho occasion
of ono of my visits to noma, he ac
corded my suite and servants the
honor of a special audience; he sent

On tho oocaslon of the Papal
lublles In 1903 to colebrate tne
twanty-tlfth anniversary of his ac
cession to tho apacy, I sent a spe
cl,I mission to-convoy my con
gratulations to the pope, at
the head of which wa Frelherr
von Loe, for many years intimately
acquainted with him.
Not long after that and only a
few months before his death I paid
my third and last vlalt to thejppe.
Though he was very weak, this
ninety-three. year-old man came up
to mt, holding both his hands out
stretched. Concerning this Ylfrtt.
which was characterized by great
cordiality on both sides, I im
mediately Jotted down some notes,
which recently came Into my pos
sesion again.
The pope said, among other things,
that he could not but give his full
approval to the principles according
to which I governed; that he had
followed with Interest my methods
of governing and reoognlzed with
Pleasure that I hud built up my rule
tn a foundation of firm Christianity;
that such lofty religious principles
underlay It that It behooved him to
ask the blessing of heaven upon my-
""If. my dynasty and the German
empire, and to grant me his apostolic
"Snonl of Cathollo Choreta."
It was of Interest to mo that the
Pope said to me on this occasion that
uermany must become the sword
cf the Catholic church. I remarked
JIT the old Roman empire of the
J; rman nation no longer existed and
' conditions had changed. Dut

My Dear llollinsnn:
I should now like to re
turn oncn again to my own stand
point regarding the -rid trine or
view of revelation, nfl I have otiru
set It forth to you, my dear Hull
man, I ilnulhgulMi between two
different kinds tf revolattnnt n
progressive, to a certain oxtetit
historical revelation, und a purely
religious one, paving the way to
the future, coming of the Mtwlah.
Of the first, this Is to bo said:
Theto Is tint the smallest doubl In
my mind that God constantly re
veals himself thr-ngli the human
race created by him. Iln has
"broAlhetl his breath Into man
kind." or, In other words, given It
n piece of himself, a soul. Ha fal
lows the development of the
human rneo with a father's lovo
und Intorset; for tho purptwt of
leading It forward and benefiting
It, hn "reveals" himself In some
gront sivant or priest or king,
whether among tho hunthens,
Jews or Christian!.
Ilttmmttrabl wiw one of these,
liklH Moses, Abrnham, Homer,
Charlemagne, Luther, Shakes
peare, Goethe, Kant. Minporor
William the Great, These men
were selected by Illm nnd mndu
worthy of his grace; of achieve
lug for their people, both In the
xpirltual and the physical domain,
splendid and Imperishable things.
In accordance, with his will. How
often did mv grandfather clearly
emphasize that he was hut an In
strument In tho hand of tho Lord.
The works of great minds are
gifts of God to the pnnpiH of tho
earth, In o'dor that they mav Im
prove themselves on these, modnln
and grnpo forward, by means of
them, through tho confusion of
that which Is still unexplored here
below. God hit certainly revealed
himself In different ways tn dif
ferent peoples, according to their
standing nnd degreo of culture,
nnd ho Is still doing It now. Tor
