Abstract: 

Osler writes of details of his trip on the Nile through Egypt. He had a week in Cairo where he saw much of interest medically. Looss showed him his ankylostoma specimens which are endemic there because of the hygienic condition. Bilharzia is very common and more hopeless. Clinics are not properly organized and men of the Griesinger stamp are needed. He will meet the Board of Education on his return to stir them to spend more money. He offers more descriptions of the country. He recommends the reading of Hichen's "Spell of Egypt". Osler was impressed by the monuments. He writes details on Karnak, and on his other visits. He describes his itinerary. Osler is sorry that his wife is not with him. Civilities.
