To: 
Chittenden, Russell H.
Abstract: 

Osler informs Chittenden what he wrote to Hadley about the invitation to the Silliman Lectureship. Following Chittenden's advice, he suggests Hadley give a course on the New Medicine and its relation to the Profession and the Public, but do not feel that they would come under the provisions of the Foundation. Mentions to Chittenden that he would like to go to Yale, to see the work at the University and bring material for two or three lectures. He asks Chittenden to discuss the matter with Hadley. He would like to come in October because the International Tuberculosis Congress is postponed until April 23rd. He will attend to it. It would be in Rome. Civilities.

Osler explains that he had to postpone his Silliman Lectures because he had been tied up with the revision of his text-book. He has got some work on the Lectures. He mentions that he had talked with Stokes on the question of some supplementary talks with the undergraduates. Hadley was with them last week, and thinks that there is no problem having the lectures in the Spring. Civilities.
