Letters from John Waters and Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Waters, John; Hagan, John
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
[21 May-8 June 1917] Typescript copy letters from John Waters, Holy Cross College, Clonliffe, Dublin, and from [...] to [Hagan]. Both reviewing an article by Fr.[...] Ryan admitted through Hagan to Waters for publication in [...] (article originally enclosed with annotations by Waters- not extant). Waters at length submitting reasons for disapproval of Ryan's moral choices in defence of hopeless rebellion and in declaring the long ties to the English Crown illegitimate – 'I have no love for this authority, but it is unquestionable, and has rights, and we have duties ...' (21 May). – Other writer [...] appreciates both Fr. [Ryan]'s article (name left blank) and the comments [by Waters], promising to submit article to an Ethics professor at the Gregorian University. While the article itself is unassailable, publication under an imprimatur is not recommended. However, then preferring to comment negatively not on [Ryan], but on the commentator [Waters], particularly finding fault with his defence of English authority. While Ireland is expected to accept whatever change of dynasty is yet in store for Britain, expecting that the meeting planned for Stockholm 'can have but little in the way of hope for crowned heads'. (Cf. Keohane's comments on Waters's harsh critique of Ryan, 26 June, HAG 1/1917/ 52.)
