Index of items sent by Kipling, Rudyard


Date: 
May 18, 1910
From: 
Kipling, Rudyard
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Kipling thanks Osler for thinking about him for the Romanes Lecture. He thought Osler was in Canada. Kipling will stay with the Vice Chancellor for the lecture. He did not get the lectures on Servetus or the Nations and the Tropics. Asks Osler to send them to him. Mentions that he has just finished his new book of children's tales and he is curious to see if the profession will recognize Culperer and Laennec the way he has drawn them. Civilities. This card was inserted in "Actions and Reactions" by Kipling, London 1909.


Date: 
May 10, 1914
From: 
Kipling, Rudyard
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Kipling declines the invitation to write something for the Roger Bacon celebration. He does not know Bacon except from the popular legend, he has no Brewer, and he cannot be in Oxford on the 10th. He is busy and in arrears of works. Kipling asks for forgiveness and for Osler to send his paper on Bacon. Kipling gives him a quotation of Nicholas which seems to him to cover Bacon's outlook. Civilities.


Date: 
April 29, 1920
From: 
Kipling, Rudyard
To: 
Osler, Grace Revere
Abstract: 

Kipling is glad to know that Grace found Revere's grave properly tended to. He comments on the need to honour and remember those who die in war.
