Holograph letter from M.[J. Curran], House of Missions, Enniscorthy (County Wexford), to Hagan. Having met members of the community of St. John of God in Enniscorthy and Wexford, he is impressed with their work; the Reverend Mother will accompany the sisters to Rome and remain until they are settled; they would like to send six sisters to cover eventualities – they will send experienced yet active sisters; other arrangements. He told 'Matt' that he is expected to give the retreat. The bishop clearly has an ill heart; Curran has not seen him. Then praising the Papal allocution of 25 (May) – it will settle the insula sanctorum-issue as regards the documents of the Holy See, but he is also impressed with the positive political reference and the 'marked absence of condemnation of the dear sons on both sides'. Asking whether the Bobbio centenary would not be a good opportunity for working towards including Columbanus on the universal calendar. Observing that the association between the Luzio mission and the Irish College is made everywhere; urging that counter representations are made. There has been another confirmation of Fr. Connolly's likely return to Rome.
