Letter from Arthur Murray to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Murray, Arthur J.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter signed Art Ó Muireadaigh (Arthur Murray), Sacred Heart Church, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, to (Hagan). He has been ordained; expressing his deep gratitude to Hagan who has had trust in him, along with Bishop Scollard. Hoping to travel to Rome with the bishop and to see Hagan again. Fr. Casey, of the Canadian Freeman's Journal, has 'converted' back to republicanism thanks to his brother (also Fr. Casey), but the Canadian Irish are lost to the cause: '...the myth of Canadian Status rejected by young Ireland seemed to hurt their amour propre'. Quoting Mrs. Green's Making of Ireland on the subject. Comparing to the French-Irish question; the religious houses in Canada tend to split up now and the Irish are in the same position 'as we knew existed in the Celio'. Also there is huge ignorance among Irish Canadians of their country. Reiterating Henri Bourasse's impressions last year; Sceilg did not publish them in the end. Murray saw Sceilg in New York at Christmas; the Major Kelly affair made him again ill; Fr. O'F[lanagan] urged everybody to stand by Sceilg.
