Abstract:

From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Abbott, Maude E.
Abstract: 

Osler thanks Maude Abbott for her endeavours to divert some of the money to the Canadien Contingent Hospital. They are getting along well, and have a nice place for 75 beds near Folkstone, but there has been a hitch about getting the place. Plenty of money will be coming in, and if the War Office handed over any of the Canadian Women's Fund, they could do a lot more. He hopes to be able to get as many of the Canadian wounded and convalescent as possible drafted to these hospitals.
