Holograph letter from M.(J. Curran), on board Orient Line S.S. Orama, Gulf of Suez, to Hagan. Recommending imminent visitors to Rome from Dunedin, New Zealand, Mr. and Mrs. Callan, and young 'unwidow-like widow' Mrs. Gavan Duffy who will meet family in Dublin and Nice. His journey is yet unclear but planning for at least a fortnight in the Holy Land, and return to Rome in early March. Enclosing a summary of Australian subscription made up to 10 January; amounts lodged and definite promises amount to £3,529-12-0. Listing the thirty individual subscriptions leading to this sum; adding names of those who promising unspecified donations, and potential other sources, such as former students. Expecting to reach £ 5,000 eventually. – Offering further details and comments on donors and on absence of potential donors in Melbourne; the result of the appeal should be clear when he returns to Rome. Then suggesting that Hagan invite Monsignor Rooney, Sandhurst diocese, to stay at the College while undergoing treatment in Rome. He failed to earlier apprize Hagan of another potential guest, Fr. Carroll, Brisbane, a former Jesuit who retired to Dublin 'in odore sanctitatis' to recruit novices and who is a decent sort despite his pietistic mould. He probably stayed at the Beda in- stead; Fr. Magennis also met him. Enclosing documents for Sr. Zeno and [Fr.] Leahy; asking the latter to pick up baggage for him. Also enclosing forwarding addresses in Jerusalem and with Cook's.
