Letter from Donald Hales to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Donald Hales, Via S. Nazaro (Albaro), Genoa, to Hagan, glad the bed has arrived in good order. Then quoting at length from a letter from his brother Tom, agreeing largely with Hagan's perception that Ireland seemed to be 'going to the dogs' in terms of mass emigration, demise of a national spirit, but expressing hope that the unforeseen will happen. Stressing also importance of 'the national unity which makes for prosperity, happiness, and more important than all, national safety in view of future European upheavals'. Then asking his opinion on the alliance of Mediterranean 'Latin powers': Mussolini might soft-talk the English but is steeled against domination in the zone, seeking the Germans for strong allies in the coming conflict.
