Letter from E.R. Morrissey to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter with few handwritten insertions signed [J.P.] [E.R. Morrissey, Dublin],to 'Carissimo' (Hagan). His and [Keohane's] travel plans. Oblique comments on 'the Canary' and 'W.H.' [...]. He delivered Hagan's message though it came late via an 'American bouncer'. Daniel is anxious about Bobbio; hoping there will be 'no assaults around the Shrine'. 'Monica' returned from the very trying conclave; the opposition tried to involve him but he does not interfere in politics. He discussed the morality of their novices with Monica, who was doubtful about them, and 'blew that sky high'; she has more important secrets than before and hides them well. The Second Visitator [...] is away with two walking sticks and will be joined by others; fearing that the things they expected will not come true. More negative comments on [the Second Visitator] whose outlook is very narrow; she will be away for the elections. The republicans are lacking in energy; while many prisoners are being released there is no sign of a general amnesty. Expecting that the elections will see to the removal of men on both sides, and their substitution with business people. (Gavan) Duffy and more so, S.T. (Ó Ceallaigh), but also M. McS[weeney], have few chances. Kenna is supposed to be quite ill; Nolan, his neighbour, seems to be near death. He has seen much of Canavan, who lacks Monica's energy.
