P417
Abstract: 

Osler thanks Klebs for the memorandum about Hutten. He gives details about the many editions of his books. At the Payne's library, he bought Hutten's stirring appeal "Ad Principes Germanos ut Bellum Turcis Inferant", 1518. He would be glad to hear about the monuments. He mentions that he has many Gesner's books and that he is devoted to his memory. Osler gives his opinion on Von Hutten' life which was not more dissipated than the average man of his period. He is just reading "Epistolas obscororum vivorum." If that is true, it is not surprising that he dedicated his "De Guaiaci" to Archbishop Albert.
