Abstract: 

Charrington had been studying with a lens a portrait of a man who seems to have been a writer on leprosy and Elephantiasis. Asks Osler the name of early writers on that subject around the 16th or 17th century. Information on the labels on the background of the books. Tells him that one of the other medical portraits is of a man called Crollus, or Crollius or Croli. Thanks for Spielmann's address.
