Scope and content

A volume containing drafts of outgoing letters written by Fr. Henry Anglin OFM Cap., mostly to contributors, authors, advertisers, patrons and printers associated with 'The Capuchin Annual'. The volume includes copy letters to: John English Ltd., Alison King, Charles C. O’Connell, Donal Linehan, Seán Neeson, Rev. John Cardiff, Elizabeth Payne, D.L. Kelleher, Rev. Michael Glynn, Seamus MacManus, and Fr. Paschal Larkin OFM Cap. Several letters refer to the circumstances surrounding the resignation of Fr. Senan Moynihan OFM Cap. from the editorship of 'The Capuchin Annual', and to Richard King’s artwork for Capuchin publications. A copy letter to Katherine Edelman notes that Fr. Senan ‘returned to all writers any manuscripts he had received and had not paid for’. (25 Nov. 1954).
