By Mgr. O’Bryen’s account of things, we are as far from the end as ever. I must confess I have not much confidence in the Monsignor. It seems to me he should have written us at the time Propaganda wrote to the late Bishop of Springfield; we might have been prepared for the Commission. Now that it is certain that no further action will be taken until a new Bishop is consecrated, will it not be as well for me to return to the Mother House for a while to attend to matters there?
Could Rev. Father Power, V.G. and Administrator of this Springfield diocese, not change the Confessor if applied to. For if Dr. Beaven were not acting in that capacity, I would not fear to leave.
Is it possible that Rome will overlook his action in this affair of Commission or are we to be left without any protection from such men!
May I hope to receive an answer to my request to return to Kingston from Your Grace at an early date.
