From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Hackett (Yale University Press)
Abstract: 

Osler is delighted with the paper and page for the book. Hart has not sent the films, as he asked, because the figures can be prepared from the photographs. He asks Hackett to send him the proof in galley forms, to facilitate the corrections. Civilities.

From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Hackett (Yale University Press)
Abstract: 

Osler is glad the Yale University Press is getting on with the illustrations. Day said Yale would pay the cost of the photographs for the work. He thinks that, as he used the pictures for his lectures, it would not be fair to have Yale pay the total amount, around 30 pounds. Asks Day's opinion, he is willing to do anything he suggests. Civilities.

From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Hackett (Yale University Press)
Abstract: 

Osler is disgusted by the fact he has not been able to send him back the lectures, but he has been tied up with extra work. Jastow, whom he consulted about some Babylonian matters, wished to see the proofs, so that detained him further. Mentions that it is impossible to get out the volume by January. Civilities.
