Fragment Letter from Bishop E. Mulhern to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Fragment holograph letter from [Bishop E. Mulhern], Ardmaine, Newry (County Down), to (Hagan). Offering to assist their campaign in any way he can but regretting that the American proposal cannot be taken up by him. The cardinal seems to have come to the same conclusions before; explaining that because of the cardinal's relations with the [Hibs] [Ancient Order of Hibernians] 'that I could not consistently go to a meeting of that body'. Mulhern himself has a reputation at home 'of at the least not being of their party'. Some comments on the best mode of collecting funds in America, judging by a priest now collecting for Clogher. Accounts of the new College are all positive; all are eager to follow Hagan's arrangements for visiting on 6 November. (The bishops of) Tuam and Killaloe will 'satisfy their obligations' while returning from the Holy Land; the rest of them will wait until after the synod. Some comments on Matt Cullen [Bishop of Kildare] who is no longer young [but] will leave enough funds in fifteen years' time for his successor to build a cathedral. Having met Fr. Magennis, observing that he seemed run down. (Letter breaks off here.)
