Draft Letter to Editor, Corriere d'Italia
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Typescript draft letter with handwritten additions by [...] to the Editor, Corriere d'Italia, 133 Via del Bufalo Rome, with superscript title 'Irlanda e la Situazione Europea'. Taking exception with an article signed 'un inglese', contradicting some of the writer's statements made in Berlin, and dealing with successful recruitment for the war in Ireland and the fact that only a small faction of Irish, moved by anti-clericalism, still feels hostility for England, whose recognition of Ireland's rights to Home Rule changed attitudes of the majority. Countering at length in four points; the number of Irish recruits has been much exaggerated; Home Rule is far from assured and is made dependent on Ulster acceptance; Irish opinion has been hoodwinked into supporting the war against Germany and censorship is in place; opposition to Britain and the war has nothing to do with anti-clericalism. Condemning the writer for preferring anonymity. (Item marked as the third document of a series.)
