Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

Osler jokes about Klebs' attack of gout. Agrees that Tissot is well worth working up. He mentions the several books he has of him and biographical anecdote. He asks Klebs if he is going to Rome (at the Tuberculosis Congress). He hopes to spend the month of April in Italy. Klebs' book was of great help in his revising of the section on tuberculosis in his text-book. Mention of positive comments from several London men. Request for an old picture and of a modern photograph of an island called Ufenau in Lake Zurich, on which Ulrich von Hutten died. Osler asks Klebs if he had read the life of von Hutten by Strauss. He asks Klebs to look for Conrad Gesner works for him. Thinks that he is probably the only really respectable Swiss in history. Civilities.
