Ó Ceallaigh, Seán T.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript letter signed Seán T. (Ó Ceallaigh), Poblacht na hÉireann, Irish Republican Headquarters, 3 East 42nd Street, New York (U.S.A.), to Hagan. Glad that the Bis[leti] affair ended satisfactorily; doubting his superiors learned from it for the future. Then commenting at length on positive news about the great activity in California. Mary MacSwiney will go there, after a financially very successful meeting in New York. She had an overall positive talk with Cardinal Hayes, despite attacks made on the American episcopate by some of their friends. Though Dr. Yorke is still ill, it is obvious that Hagan's and the General's letters had a very positive influence on attitudes there. Fr. O'Flanagan was happy to leave for Ireland; while his superiors might not give him an over-cordial welcome he will be a help in the contests in the west. Expecting that Dr. Mannix's arrival in Rome, and in Ireland, will be embarrassing for some people; the Irish hierarchy will not be all too cordial with him. Grateful for Hagan's remarks on Italian American clergy and their sympathies; he will have more time to find something out when he gets to Washington. Apart from (Archbishop) Hanna he has not been able to see any of the hierarchy. Dr. Browne, now in Rome with (the Archbishop of) Tuam, should have a good influence on 'the old man' who needs somebody to stiffen his back. Then stating that the article on the cardinal's hat for Dundalk in the New York Bulletin was by a man named Gallagher. A New York friend feels confident they can win at least five of the seats now contested for, only Dublin might be threatened by the intervention of labour.
