Letter from Hagan to [Bishop...]
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript [copy] letter from [Hagan], Rome, to [Bishop...], regarding the new envoy about to be sent to Rome, Count O'Byrne, and Hagan's own role in connection with the Irish delegation. While he has exerted himself much for the Irish cause in the past, and while he will continue to give Mrs. Gavan Duffy cooperation while she is in temporary charge of the delegation, he states that he will have 'nothing to do with the Delegation beyond exhibiting towards the Envoy such marks of social observance as I should render to any distinguished Irishman...'. He had not looked for recognition for his efforts but is disappointed with the official discourtesy and a marked want of consideration and confidence. Adding that 'my activities in connexion with Irish public affairs shall be strictly limited to the sphere of such instructions as may be issued by the Bishops from time to time' – he foresees a period of far less anxiety. Asking to have the Count know of this decision.
