Ó Ceallaigh, Seán T.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter signed Seán T. (Ó Ceallaigh), Grand Hotel, Paris (France), to Hagan, in thanks for his two interesting letters, delivered by the canon who arrived together with the archbishop. Both praised hospitality in Rome and have left for London. Expressing great satisfaction that Hagan will be ready to give Count O'Byrne counsel when needed- he is 'even more particularly a tyro in the diplomatic field than either myself or Duffy...' Distressed at the discourtesy that was shown to Hagan by their people at home although he had noted a lack of tact among chiefs of certain departments. With regard to a difficulty that arose in Rome, concerning a 'brother' who is seen to undermine [Hagan's] position, advising on a strong stand and on putting the case before the friends referred to: he will elaborate in a letter delivered by hand. Welcoming Hagan's comments; agreeing that the letter of the 'Chairman' [Griffith] was decidedly vague. They have to wait until the terms are more clearly defined, fearing however that they might be too late then to alter matters. Reiterating that he expressed his strong opinions in Dublin and London; perceiving that following that 'there was a decided [stiffening] on the part of our people'. Expecting to see a reply from Ulster tomorrow, which will decide whether the negotiations will be continued. Also remarking that Tuam 'turned out such a pleasant surprise'.
