Letter from G. Gavan Duffy to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Gavan Duffy, George
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter signed G. Gavan Duffy, Irish Delegation of Plenipotentiaries – Secretariat, Dáil Éireann, [London, England], to Hagan. Since he cannot come to Rome as originally planned, expressing deep gratitude for Hagan's kindness and assistance given to him and his wife when in Rome. The conference has been 'a very exacting ordeal', and after many crises they have reached the most crucial stage: 'I fancy that the next move will lie rather with Dail Eireann than with us'. The spirit of the country, seemingly is 'hardening admirably'; a few weeks could not suffice in bringing the enemy up to scratch when they had undisputed possession for so long, until Easter week. 'What will happen is on the knees of the gods!'
