Letter from M.J. Curran to Hagan

Curran, Michael J.
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from M.(J. Curran), 211 (North Circular Road) Dublin, to Hagan, in reply to a letter of 8 (February); his mother's spirits are much better. Hoping Sbarretti and Lucidi will get their heart's desires, but sorry that there is much foundation for the Down and Connor report. Finding that things are as narrow as usual in clerical circles, though politics are thankfully taboo; criticism of the archbishop, when expressed, is rather strong. Some other diocesan news concerning colleagues. In politics, all talk about the murder, all agreed that aggressor and victim had been on the lookout for one another; sketching the latter's 'ugly history'. Despite all previous 'rumpus', Cosgrave's reception in Dublin might have not been quite so big: 'fireworks seemed the principal attraction to be dangled or fired before the Dublin populace'.
