From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Williams, John Whitridge
Abstract: 

Osler is terribly disappointed not to be able to come for the October Celebration (25th anniversary of the Johns Hopkins Hospital) because of war. He had a note from Welch saying that it might be postponed, but he does not agree, as it would upset many arrangements.


Date: 
December 16, 1915
From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Williams, John Whitridge
Abstract: 

Osler will let Williams know later, as there is a difficulty about registration. It may be possible to arrange. Deplores that the Unit did not come. The Harvard Unit and the Chicago Unit have had a good experience. The Chicago Unit has signed for a year. They are moving out of the tents which are not suited to the climate. All well. His opinion is that USA should get their boats ready. If the Allies go under, their turn comes next.

Abstract: 

Osler asks Williams to send a memorandum percentage of the share borne by the Hospital and the Medical School in the salaries and expenses of the departments of pathology, medicine and physiology. Explains that he is on the Welsh Royal Commission for Education in Wales.
