Letter from Seán T. Ó Ceallaigh to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Ó Ceallaigh, Seán T.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Seán T.(Ó Ceallaigh), 91 Stephen's Green, Dublin, to 'a chara dhilis' (Hagan), having received two letters from him. Afraid for his health, although Michael (Curran) does not think the bronchitis will be serious; judging that over the last years he has done ten men's work and needs to rest. Hagan's remarks about 'A.C.' did not surprise him, nor his commitment regarding 'B.+ Co.', and 'the Rock' is not the most reliable, though Ó Ceallaigh has always 'found visiting it most agreeable'. Reporting he talked to 'the Nation', expecting little from it. Due to a rule passed at the ardfheis, no-one invited to a select state banquet at the Shelbourne that includes the nuncio will attend; a religious celebration would be a different matter. Armagh's absence would be a very pointed statement; Dublin's likely attendance he finds would denote a big change of front. While D[eValera]'s mission seems more promising this time, he seems not to have raised support at a recent meeting with 'millionaires' in New York – 'it is quite possible our friend was too academic'. Comments on meeting Wexford clergy, and their verdict on the cardinal's speech of thanksgiving and its omissions. Mutual friends are worried about Hagan's health; reference to seeking information on 'R's' [...] family history. He will forward Hagan's information on Hayes on to 'Miss C.' [...] in New York. D.(eValera) has purchased a house in Booters- town Avenue, with a friend putting up the cash. Hoping Hagan received the Holinshed.
