Draft Letter by Hagan to Archbishop Cerretti
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
[post-April 1914 pre-December 1925] Handwritten draft letter from (Hagan) to 'my dear Lord' [Archbishop Cerretti], congratulating him and with good wishes for his new sphere. Explaining he eventually compared the Italian version as published in the press of the Holy Father's letter to Cardinal Logue, finding they correspond satisfactorily. He had been concerned about the paragraph about the conference suggested for both parties. Only regretting that the wording as proposed by Dr. Mannix was not followed. Appreciating greatly the strong expression of sympathy rendered by the Holy Father- in Ireland and elsewhere it will help dispel the suspicion that English influence had too much of its own way. Also commenting that the sum given was magnificent; a smaller would have served as well. (Letter marked 'Cerretti' over the address.)
