Letter from E.E. Laws to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from E.E. Laws, Kenmore, Taplow (Berkshire, England), to Hagan; he is visiting the Misses Coleman but is returning to London. When in Dublin recently, he met Gavan Duffy, O'Kelly, Frank Walsh, and others. Observing that many non-Catholics give vent to anti-papal feelings while expressing their love of Ireland. Then stating that Archbishop Duhig has not written yet- it were better if he disowned rather than ignored him. Pointing to the fact that some English priests sympathise with Ireland only to add to the col- lection box. Briefly mentioning a 'disgusting experience' Bishop Foley had in connection with a hotel-oratory. In a clash with two curates he reminded them that their payment stems from the (Irish) majority of their parishioners; 'Hail Glorious St. Patrick' was raised heartily after a recent ceremony.
