Pontifical Irish College
Murray, Arthur J.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from A.J. Murray, St. Patrick�s College, Thurles (County Tipperary), to Hagan, apologising if he requested too much for lack of experience in Irish ecclesiastical affairs. Sincere good wishes for success against the 'intrigues of the Britishers' � Dr. Dwyer said there was much wire-pulling going on. Enclosing an excerpt from Dr. McDonald's book on moral issues with tax evading es including the 'blood tax' (conscription); commenting it is 'a terrible stab to DeValera' and suggesting that Fr. Vermeersch S.J. write a refutation. Hagan himself and P.N .Pearse wrote previously against an argument that 'since 1172 prominent Irish men have acknowledged the invader'. Asking for a copy of O'Riordan's Red Book; offering to translate it into English. Asking for news about 'the Colony' [English College Rome]- imagining Monsignor Hinsley is not in Hagan's favour.
