Hopes he did not forget to thank Osler for the pamphlet on the book-worm. Answers his bibliographical questions. Asks him if he had bought anything at the Huth Sale. He has bought Rive's Chasse aux Bibliographes. Details about the other book he bought. Informs him that he gave up his position as librarian of the DeRenne Library in Savannah, and is now waiting to do war work for the National Red Cross. Thinks he will go to France early in October.
