Letter from M.J. Curran to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Curran, Michael J.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from M.J. C.[urran], 211 (North Circular) Road (Dublin), to Hagan, having received letters and report. He saw young Gallen who is better and wants to return to Rome. Then commenting favourably on the Bank's offer of the property of Villa Colonna; although not well served by transport now it will be if and when the railway station at S. Maria Maggiore is built. Then observing that the Titular's 'incursion is certainly cool' since he has no shadow of a claim. Comments on the wall to be built in Tivoli. Promising to haul Conn [Murphy] over the coals for the Good affair. The archbishop was very attentive but looked worn. He will go to Bobbio but will not get involved in the organisation. The archbishop knew well of the Irish College's position in the Luzio question but did not think it requisite to read a repudiation by Curran at the Standing Committee. Curran believes that the bishops who do not know the situation will probably believe what political prejudices dictate anyhow. He will do his best to see where the report originated. Enclosing cutting from the Independent of 19 April with the [Despard]-Gasparri telegram (not extant). If the latter was in fact a forgery, as implied by the government, wondering who sent it; Borgongini ought to investigate. Expecting to return to Rome by 9 July; relieving Hagan of 'our friend the bishop' on 11 July.
