FSF meets Father Sigourney Fay and Shane Leslie

Newman was where he met Father Sigourney Fay. Fitzgerald described Fay as a Richelieu born in the wrong place and time, a man capable of dazzling an embassy ball, and the Irish writer Shane Leslie wrote that Fay was a society priest in a country where they are very rare, capable of going straight from a party to give a convent retreat which could be appreciated by such good judges as the Carmelites. Fay took up the young Minnesotan, introduced him to people like Henry Adams, and carefully encouraged and groomed him.
There he met Father Sigourney Fay who encouraged his ambitions
Olmstead says that Fitzgerald met Chanler in 1912 when he was a teenager through Father Sigourney Fay. Father Fay was a father figure to Fitzgerald and encouraged the young writer to pursue his ambitions early in his career.
