Osler, William
Abstract: 

Cunningham thanks Osler for his letter. Answers that in former contests, the non-political candidate has usually been unfortunate at the poll, but things have changed. The deputation said that Osler would have strong backing here, as Churchill and Wyndham are very weak. Cunningham advises Osler that political excitement enters largely into these contests. Osler would receive a cordial welcome as Lord Rector from those in the University who do not possess a vote.
