Letter from Geoffrey Gilman to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Geoffrey Gilman, St. Patrick's Church, [Midnapore], Alberta, Canada, to Hagan. Expressing his personal sorrow over O'Riordan's passing. Hoping Hagan will be appointed rector; Miss Rathe keeps him posted on Roman affairs. Delighted that Fr. Dempsey will come out on mission to them. He is to be on a new appointment living in a German settlement and looking after three churches. Brief description of the parish he is in now- the congregation is mostly Irish and was going to petition against his departure- and the very hard curacy he held in Calgary last year: 'so I was broken in with a vengeance. I made 6 converts'. Asking for Hagan's book on theology from which he prepared much-used sermons; also asking for relics which Miss Rathe can arrange to be sent to him.
