Letter from M.J. Browne to Archbishop Gilmartin
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Handwritten [copy] letter from M.J. Browne (copied by himself), St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth (County Kildare), to Archbishop [Gilmartin of Tuam]. Originally enclosing report on the proposed constitutions as subject to [Byrne]'s approval. But stating that some important questions need to be raised separately. Raising the point that the institution [...] is still by pontifical decree of 1830 under the authority of the Archbishop of Tuam. Commenting on the anomaly that the institution has no constitutions, and that it is ruled not strictly as either diocesan or as Tertiaries. Recommending they should be treated as a new institute, not merely Tertiaries; they have gone beyond that and put teaching before everything else; it is unlikely they be awarded pontifical freedom from the ordinary. It is necessary for him to attend their chapter. Affirming that Browne merely seeks the welfare of the institute and the diocese it serves. (Marked 'confidential' in another hand.) (Probably contained in Archbishop Gilmartin's letter of 20 January 1927.)
