Holograph letter from Bishop William Codd, Wexford, to Hagan, commenting on recent developments regarding Mount St. Benedict’s. An inspector met the teachers presently employed there to assess them for later state employment. Commenting that there are many women teachers now; a trend that began during the war and developed in England since women are cheaper. Fr. Sweetman told his congregation that the clergy and Mrs. Ebbs are responsible for the impending closure of the school. For Hagan's information and because it will be useful, enclosing holograph letter from Alice Ebbs, Ballingarry, Gorey, to [Bishop] Codd: expressing her anxiety over the allegation that she accused Fr. Sweetman of republican activities, stressing her difficult situation with nine little children and scandal given to her by the people – 'hoping I am not causing trouble'. – Further comments on her and Canon Murphy's statements. Different quarters are making efforts to have Sweetman retained and cleared of allegations. Asking Hagan and Fidecicchi to act at the congregation if necessary. [1 - 8 March 1925]
