Letter from J.A. O'Reilly to Hagan
Pontifical Irish College
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from J.A. O'Reilly 'alumnus Coll. Hib.' [now Canada] to 'Monsignor' (Hagan), explaining his project of establishing Catholic night schools and a chain of daily papers in Canada, believing that the eventual solution of the Irish problem is in education. Asking him to submit his ideas to Cardinal O'Donnell. – Enclosing (written on the reverse) copy appeal addressed by O'Reilly to 'Professor' [...]. Discussing his past experience with night schools in St. John’s; listing in detail the dangerous failings of the imperialistic 'yellow press' which seeks to destroy 'the liberties of the white race' and is opposed to DeValera and the Irish republic. Illustrating at length how night classes would lead people to demand Canadian plays (opposed to French-Canadian). (Disturbed mind at work.)
