Letter from Hagan In Code
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter with few handwritten insertions signed C.[...], New York, to 'Tom' (ostensibly student in Irish College [Hagan], in code). Tom's uncle, the Colonel, could not find the news he required at home, but Miss Cregan sent on the enclosed letter from the chief (not extant). There is no news about the telegram Tom wanted to find out about. Mother Brewer [E.J. Morrissey] is the most pessimistic woman ever met before. 'Sister Kay' [P.T. Keohane] only laughs at her although she also suffered. Could not see the Mother General [DeValera] but saw the enthusiastic faster of Christmas day. Mr. O'Callaghan is to mediate among the warring factions as official envoy; the plan is to re- strengthen the old movement and get people interested constitutionally. The problem is lack of funds especially for the dependents of prisoners. Also, it will be hard 'to get this country into line again; every organisation of ours here is at every other such organisation's throat'. Hoping he attends his studies. All Ireland is sending his rector to Galway. (There is a remote possibility that the writer is C.F. Ronayne.)
