Their dates in Rome will be 13 to 18 October. Then expressing his regret over the many unsubstantial rumours about the Irish College's purported failure during the National Pilgrimage in 1925. He has with the party himself and had only goodwill towards the College. Then explaining that Veritas is a separate body, though complementing the Catholic Truth Society's work of propaganda through its trading capacity. Any profits after expenses go to the Society. Promising a copy of the telegram sent [by the Vatican] to the last Catholic Congress in England; sketching differences to the Catholic Truth Congress in Ireland and stating that they like to secure influence at the Vatican, but do not exercise it often in favour of Ireland.
