Letter from M.J. Browne to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from M.J.B.(rowne), St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth (County Kildare), to (Hagan). Regretting the case of Mr. Patten against whom the Archbishop [of Tuam] seems in some way set; it will be best for him to take an American mission. Commenting on Monsignor Valeri's recent visit to Dublin which must have had a good reason. Rumours say that Dr. Sheehan will go to Kildare; he is not a 'tub-thumper' and would be a useful acquisition to the Irish bench as an educationist. He has 'some of the aroma of Dr. Mannix... about him' and irritates some. Sketching the dissatisfaction with the hierarchy's support for the Irish College while Maynooth lost numbers; Browne has tried to dispel misapprehensions. Praising Hagan's persistence and devotion.
