Letter from S.P. Conry to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from S.P.C.[Conry], Ballyhaunis (County Mayo), to Hagan. Informing him that English correspondents in New York 'made a set' on Fr. Magennis; Conry tries counteracting them in America and Ireland. On the topic of the new rector of the Irish College, he has it from Archbishop Gilmartin that he will vote for Hagan � 'to be an ardent Irishman is no sin in [his] eyes'-; the main qualification of the Armagh candidate is that he accompanied the Cardinal to Rome before. The archbishop advised Conry not to apply for a curacy in Tuam blithely; it would be a big change from Rome, and he is glad to have a Tuam man there. Asking Hagan for his opinion on whether he ought to ap-ply for the vice-rectorship, as recommended by Gilmartin; references from Bishop Esser and Monsignor Luzio may be necessary, but he would not apply unless Hagan was to be rector. Also advising him that he has asked Mr. Beazley for the name of a Labour M.P. although on 'K's' [Keohane's] advice he will not now have him ask a question in the House (of Commons) as to the interference of the British legation in Irish affairs in Rome.
