Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from C.F. R.[oynane], Carmelite Priory, 56 Aungier Street, Dublin, to Hagan. Stating his optimism that 'full Dominion status for the whole of Ireland is beginning to be less of a dream than [men] supposed a few short months ago'; their friends have now established themselves in the public confidence. Enclosing a memorandum concerning insurance matters: following the valuation of the Via Mazzarino and Tivoli sites at £ 110,000, the under- secretary is to put this to Dr. Harty, but preliminarily it was decided between General [...] and the under-secretary that (Sinn Fein) would stand responsible for the sum. – Commenting that without evidence of overt hostility their friends are not taking action regarding 'Nolan and the Marcantonio crowd'; pejorative remarks about Nolan who is not thought of highly. Then dealing at length with the Blue Nuns' case- he is preparing a document for two of them to sign. Three priests are going to give evidence for the late bishop's efforts to 'fire the Blues out'- asking Hagan to arrange for Mahoney to see them. He also saw (Sr.) Ambrose and several nuns whose depositions are heartbreaking; a scheme is being circulated among the houses including Hagan's suggestion of a general franchise. Then asking Hagan for a paragraph for the October Notes about the new archbishop's Roman days; it is also to deal with a certain recent case of vile propaganda. The General is to arrive soon- they will try and travel back together with Dr. Morrissey and P.T. K.[eohane] who needs persuading. Brief comments on mutual acquaintances, including Dr. White of San Silvestro.
