Letter from M. Toher to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from M. Toher, Lusk, County Dublin, to Hagan. Thanking him for his letter; elaborating on his 'self-revelations': he has found unprecedented contentment in his vocation; while happy where he is he would also come to Rome if there were any use for him. Arguing that Hagan exaggerates the possibilities for the vacancy, though Irish news get distorted on the way to Rome. On politics, he refers to the 'stamping out...of poisonous insects and their nests'; expresses certainty that there will be no division between Sinn Fein and Labour; the latter is often portrayed as a potential danger for Ireland, without reason. Priests are to take their place in society frankly and publicly with the people and not to heed calls for 'prudence'; the Archbishop and Dr. O'Dwyer are only two who have done magnificent work for the faith. Warm praise for Hagan's edition of the breviary; adding three suggestions for improvement. Informing him on the N.U.I. senate elections; John D'Alton is the Maynooth nominee for (Sinn Fein). Brief comments on the railway strike which it seems will not be held in Ireland.
