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 (United States of America), to Hagan, in thanks for his letter and postscript of April, and the paper. Enclosing his comments on the paper (not extant) with his arguments against adoption of the new policy; knowing they are shared by the majority of the T.D.s. Pleased about the new arrival in Rome, who will act as an antidote 'to the un- worthy activities of his colleague in the Order'. Asking 'Dan' [Archbishop Mannix] whether he would travel their way when going home – he 'would do infinite good to the cause' were he to spare them some days in New York, Chicago and the west coast. It seems he is likely to be promoted; so is one of either Armagh or Dublin: favouring Armagh (Archbishop O'Donnell) because he is the bigger man and more reliable from Hagan's own standpoint. At the same time Dublin (Archbishop Byrne) was raised in his estimation through his unstinting support for Hagan. Thinking it unlikely that 'M.'[...] would be selected for the Ross vacancy; the reverses at the last by-election will be a reason against it; expressing optimism still that their day will come. Fortunately, Smiddy's attempt to have Mary MacSwiney deported failed. Her tour has been a success overall, despite the drop in numbers compared to four years ago; listing the satisfactory sums donated, but lean times are ahead. Cait is fairly well. Enclosing cutting from today's New York times (not extant) on the warm reception for O'Duffy of the Civic Guards who did much to further boost the Free State. He passed on Hagan's request for help to the lady mentioned whose organisation will meet soon; otherwise unsure whether he can do much to help the project Hagan pursues- the plans haven't arrived yet. Enclosing copy extract of a historical piece about the Irish bishops at the time of the English Reformation, of Rinuscini's visitation, as the cause for the first Jesuits to be sent to Ireland- Ó Ceallaigh asking for comments on the piece. Now attached draft handwritten memorandum by (Hagan) listing bishops signing or opposing the decree of excommunication .
