Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from (unsigned) (M.J. Curran), Genoa, to 'Carissimo' (Hagan). On arriving in Bobbio the 'fascist' mistook him for an official from Piacenza, the celebrations of 24 May being underway. The rector in his capitular vestments – 'sadly marred by a week's growth of beard'- rescued him. He discussed plans for September and gave [Bisetti] the circular; the Irish visitors to Bobbio will be able to stay at Piacenza. Sketching his travel plans via Marseille; he will go to Wexford to see P. Murphy. Enclosing a document that may be useful (not extant). Bobbio is a charming place and 'ideally reposeful'. Apologising to the Bishop of Dunedin for his abrupt departure.
