Letter from Archbishop William Walsh to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Archbishop William Walsh, Archbishop's House, Dublin, to Hagan. Explaining his former ignorance of the necessity to involve all the archbishops in the question of the vice-rectorship; pointing to the jealousy felt particularly towards the Dublin diocese in promoting priests. However, despite 'the natural feeling that a National institution should not be run on diocesan lines' it ought not to be forgotten that Dublin had sent out Dr. Verdon when the College was probably at its lowest point; to his capacity and generosity with his own money the College owes very much. It is in the archbishops' hands to make the process smooth; the standing committee meets on Tuesday week. The 'unfortunate "interview"' is the only point on which serious opposition could hinge.
