Abstract: 

Osler received Tyson's letter. He deplores Janeway's death, and offers a tribute to him. He describes his trip on the Nile with his brother. The world has seen nothing to match Thebes. He wonders how they miss what the Greeks have. He is glad that Deaver had the Clinical Chair. He mentions a rumor from St. Louis that Edsall has resigned and is going there. He enjoys his easier life in Oxford which gives him time to work and read. He saw many medical cases in Cairo. Looss showed him his specimens of hook worm disease. The bilharzia is very common. An extraordinary polypoid colitis develops late. He mentions pellagra cases with spinal cords he never saw before. He is surprised that there is no malaria. He will be back April 1st. He asks Tyson if he will come this year. Love to Mellor.
