Abstract: 

Osler stipulates that Gorgas will be in London from the 17th to the 24th of March. Explains that even if the latter is not a specially distinguished surgeon, he has done sanitation work as no army surgeon as ever done. The occasion of his appointment as Surgeon General of the U.S. Army is good occasion to salute his work.
