Ó Ceallaigh, Seán T.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Seán T. (Ó Ceallaigh), 91 St. Stephen's Green (Dublin), to (Hagan), commenting on the release of Stack and DeValera: Hagan would have been 'charmed beyond measure' witnessing the thousands greeting DeValera and lining the streets; even the most optimistic did not expect such. Likewise, thousands appeared when a reception was held that evening. It must have been an eye-opener for 'Cosgrave & Co.'; DeValera spoke 'well and effectively' and he seems to have gained ground rather than lost it. Michael [Curran] met him in Ó Ceallaigh's house and presumably told him what they have been going through recently in Rome. Hoping to see their Carmelite friend soon; he did have a long talk with Dr. M. B[rowne]. Disheartened with the prospect of going to the United States, as advised by DeValera, since their people seem to have fallen into a dozen factions 'and it is being put up to me that I must try to clean up the mess'. Still hoping to have holidays with Hagan. Then adding that 'D.'[...] was pleased with a telegram from Sydney. Warm greetings from their friend who looks forward to a long talk.
