Curran, Michael J.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from M.J.C.(urran), Rome, to Hagan. Discussing the case of missing cheques. Grateful Hagan visited his mother. Listing visitors who include the Bishop of Nottingham, looking for priests; he sketched the questionable career of (Fr.)Roche, for times in Nottingham and Liverpool, now back in Ireland; the bishop finds little fault with him but stated he is outspoken about politics. Brief news of the new building; the first baths are being installed. Fr. Gogarty, Drogheda, is there to talk to the Pope about his revelations; Curran discouraged him since he has no commendatory letters with him. Some financial matters concerning tax repayments looked after by the Bishop of Dromore; also news on investments. The bishop also congratulates them on having secured Formia. Asking which bishops go to Chicago. The Domini- can nuns opposite St. Isidore’s sold their houses; they were told the tunnel scheme was dropped. Brief reference to a Cloyne student more interested in cars than his studies; others are well. Commenting of the recent letter from the Pope to the 'fascist'; the latter had claimed that the church only has the use of the building when it was selling it; comparing to St. Agatha’s.
