To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.

From: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Arrangements for the meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee and Professor Maragliano's lecture in Philadelphia. Flick agrees with Osler that Maragliano's work is questionable.

From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Osler does not see why Flick would not agree to participate in the Daniel Lewis Congress on Tuberculosis if it was handed over to their Tuberculosis Committee. Osler advises against forming a third Congress that would compete with those of Lewis and Clark Bell. He accepts the invitation to the Maragliano luncheon.


From: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Flick agrees with Osler that they ought not to organize a third Congress on Tuberculosis to counteract the work of Daniel Lewis and Clark Bell. However, he would like to form a national association, which could prepare the way for an International Congress on Tuberculosis in the U.S. in 1906 or 1907. From what he has heard, he maintains that Lewis's Congress will be a discredit to the country and to the medical profession.


From: 
King, Herbert M.
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.

To:

From: 
Bell, Clark
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Arrangements for Flick's presentation at the Congress on Tuberculosis, to be held under the auspices of the Medico-Legal Society on February 21, 1900.


From: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Flick has just received a cable from Maragliano saying that he is ill and unable to attend the conference in Philadelphia. Flick feels that this is a bit of an embarrassment after all the arrangements have been made and as all those invited were anxious to meet with Maragliano and hear his lecture. Flick would like to change the luncheon he had planned in Maragliano's honour into a dinner.


From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Osler comments on the news that Maragliano has cancelled his trip to Philadelphia. He feels it is best to cancel the evening meeting, and simply present the abstract and English version of Maragliano's lecture.


From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Osler feels that it is awkward that Maragliano canceled his visit to Philadelphia at the last moment. He suggests that most of the meetings should be canceled, and instead, a brief abstract and English version of Maragliano's lecture should be distributed. Osler does not think much will come of Flick's meeting if he insists on keeping out of Daniel Lewis's Congress on Tuberculosis.


From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Osler asks if it would be better to omit Maragliano's paper altogether from the upcoming meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee in Philadelphia.


From: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Flick had taken Osler's advice and will have the abstract and English version of Maragliano's lecture distributed. Flick adamantly refuses to associate himself in any way with Daniel Lewis and his Congress on Tuberculosis. If the majority of the men at the upcoming meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee agree to join with Lewis, Flick will do nothing to embarrass them, but will still refrain from participating. He would like to organize instead a United States Society for the Prevention of Tuberculosis, with Trudeau as president and Jacobs as secretary, which could make arrangements to bring the International Congress on Tuberculosis to the U.S.


From: 
Knopf, Sigmund Adolphus
To: 
Flick, Lawrence F.
Abstract: 

Knopf is sorry to learn that he will not have the pleasure of meeting Maragliano. He suggests that they postpone the meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee to an evening hour when more men would be able to attend.
