Postscript to a Letter from Hagan to [...]
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript postscript to a letter from [Hagan], Rome, to [...]. Having mentioned the Morning Post and its Protestant Rome correspondent, Millar, quoting at length from his recent series of articles entitled 'The Papacy and Politics' (5 September), dealing with the British legation to the Holy See. Quotations include points about the great support given to the legation by Cardinal Gasquet; the fierce opposition by the Irish College - mentioning 'the late Rector's clandestine 'Red Pamphlet''; the British legation's success in winning the Italian press over; Benedict XV's reprimands for pro-Irish clerics who unadvisedly spoke against Great Britain; Pius XI's well-meant delegation to Ireland of 'an ecclesiastic who had played billiards with DeValera in his student days' [Luzio]- 'but we must not expect either the Vatican or our Legation to work miracles in the Irish question...' Also judging that the British clerics in Rome 'as at the time of the Spanish Armada...are in politics Britons first'. (Cf. letter from Hagan to Archbishop Mannix, 5 October 1923; because of repetitions this item is not likely a part of that letter.)
