Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

Thanks for the book he gave him (Firmin Didota "Alde Mannuae"). Will put it next to Renoir Annales de l'Unpriniere Alde. Glad that Adami sent him his bookplate. He has the Leoni ceius Syphilis tractate. Mentions the Grocyn letter to Aldus in the 1499 Astrom. Veleres. Asks him for the figures of syphilis and gonorrhoea in the Canadian troops during the first two years. Mentions that the matter has been referred to in the House Committee sitting on the bill. The Bruce Report of the cases has given a great shock in Canada. Osler thinks that the figures could be useful to get increased police power against open prostitution.
