Letter from P.J. Keohane to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from 'K.' (P.J. Keohane), Dublin, to Hagan, expressing certainty that Hagan will not go on holidays at this time however much he might need it. Things 'are shaping' very well; [the Bishop of] Clonfert has promised to give his active help; [MacCaffrey] already approached Cashel and the latter will be tackled discreetly from another side also. There is a general consensus, and 'the midge battalion which batters on the Clonliffe cow leaf' need not be worried about. A friend of his finds 'Salamanca' [D.J. O'Doherty] harmless in the matter, if closed about his politics. Some oblique comments on 'Anthony' who is still there and who must be pleased since he and his friends carried the day at the elections, excluding 'Thomas' who is back in the ranks. He has sent a message to Kiltimagh to have the petition withdrawn; he and Fr. Albert were used in an unfair way in the matter; [the Bishop of] 'Achonry is a very poor specimen anyway one takes him'. He has some people keeping a lookout for their Croom friend. 'Fr. M.' from Limerick called; he does not know what to make of him. Brief comment on the notes in the (Catholic Bulletin), whose writer did his best given the intricacies of the situation.
