Letter from Patrick Cleary toHagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter signed by Pádraig Ó Cléirigh (Patrick Cleary), St. Columban's College, Dalgan Park, Galway, to Hagan, in gratitude for kindness shown to them in Rome; there are no new developments in the Vicariate question. Giving his considered views of the political situation; apologising for what are 'the impressions of a hermit'. The peace treaty aroused no enthusiasm, but on the one hand a sigh of relief - the terms could be worked to advantage for the country - and on the other a feeling of regret 'that the ideals of the grandest five years of our history were about to [be] lost sight of for ever'. In stupefaction they try to reconcile DeValera's strong speeches of the last weekend with his letter of yesterday; speculating on his motives. Cleary hopes that DeValera will swing the Dáil with him so that a plebiscite is not necessary; people would vote for acceptance although his strong personality might mean otherwise; the Volunteers would be behind him and are steeling themselves for the worst. Hagan's question whether DeValera will bring the country with him he cannot answer: 'as far as I can see there is no bitterness, there is merely a hungering for the light, and a readiness to do what is right'.
