Letter from Bishop E. Mulhern to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Bishop E. Mulhern, Ardmaine, Newry (County Down), to Hagan, making reference to another step (not clear) and to his discovering Canon 1538. On politics, one must be satisfied that L.[loyd] G.[eorge] has yielded to superior diplomacy; a sign he wants to come to terms. The whole case will stand and fall on partition. It depends on how far the delegates will go in de- fining what is called Ulster- he thinks the best of them have only lately begun 'to have doubts regarding their knowledge of the race we live amongst here'. [Down and Connor] is in London, and not just on holiday. When at the mee- ting of the [Catholic Truth Society] he will fulfil his promise to keep Hagan in touch. Stating that he has a certain notoriety in the States since his visit to DeV.[alera] concerning the telegram- the British propagandists made him out to be one of the 'sane' bishops representing [Logue] and others in order to force Sinn Fein to accept Home Rule. A correspondent published one of his letters in full in a paper to change that impression. Then stating that he and Clogher are keen to come to Rome next year. He does not mean the standing committee to be postponed. Their meeting was held early; [Down and Con- nor] and Kerry were late: 'he got on well. D.[e] V.[alera] was well [pleased] with the result' (not clear whom he means). Enclosing blank paper should a 'sanatio' be necessary.
