Letter from Elisabeth Christitch to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Elisabeth Christitch of the Serbian Relief Fund, 33 Brooke St., Holborn (London, England), to Hagan. Introducing herself as originally Irish [from Limerick], now engaged in a scheme to collect funds for the erection of a Catholic church in Belgrade. Her daughter Annie has gone to America for the purpose; asking Hagan for letters of introduction to Irish prelates in America since 'it is the Irish that count in America'. Bishop Fogarty of Killaloe wishes them well but tried to dissuade them from 'intruding anything of the kind just now on a country so cruelly treated, suffering far worse, from what he tells me, than we in Serbia under the enemy occupation suffered from the Austrian army of occupation'. Adding other personal information.
