Letter from W. Miller to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from W. Miller, Braganza House, Carlow, to Hagan. Enclosing sums given in charity, including mass stipends. Glad they have succeeded in buying the property (in Tivoli). Surmising that there will be more fighting since that has become a way of life for some. There is little sign of the upcoming elections and there is no branch of the new [U.I.L.] in the county; people are indifferent what politics is concerned. Enclosing typescript letter signed L. Brophy, St. Conleth's Presbytery, Newbridge (County Kildare), to Dr. Miller. Praising the work of the sisters of St. John of God in Carlow College, between 1910 and 1920. Listing their duties, criticising that their superior in Kilkenny did not allow them to manage the storeroom also. Also pointing out that difficulties lay mostly in the small number of only three nuns who had to report to Kilkenny when a problem arose. They left finally with the explanation that their order was founded for teaching and nursing, not the care of a college. [23 March - 25 June (1923)]
