Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from P.J. Roughneen, 2 Bristol Road, Brighton (England), to Hagan. He passed Hagan's request on to Mother Louis who refuses to communicate with him. Offering his view of the problem which is rooted in a row of the community with the bishop over appointing officers, but also in the Sinn Fein connections of superioresses; a Jesuit Fr. Gleeson is also involved. He thinks that both the bishop and Fr. O'Hara were badly treated in the process. He is following the rectorship question through Fr. Conry. Offering the sparse news they have of Hughes, who is said to work for an Anglo-French company; the rumours about a lady could not be confirmed. Stating that he is some - what bewildered about the many cases of priests abandoning the priesthood; he knows of six cases personally (mentioning two); according to the bishop the case is bad especially with the army chaplains. Hagan could use this in an argument 'on the comparative value of "political press" (and) married clergy'.
