Abstract: 

Osler asks Day to deposit the cheque (to cover his fee for delivering the Silliman Lectures) in his Dominion Bank account in Toronto. Jokes about the fact that the Yale University will get most of his money back in the next three years (because of the sale of book). Civilities.

Hopes to get at something unidentified. Explains that he is tied up and in arrears. He has neglected his textbook. His visit to Yale was a delightful incident.
