Letters sent to Lewis, Thomas


Date: 
February 5, 1912
From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Lewis, Thomas
Abstract: 

Osler agrees with the idea of doing something for Einthoven. He would like to give him a dinner at the Athenaeum, or if Lewis and McKenzie think best, a number of doctors could give him a dinner together. He will invite him to visit him in Oxford, where he could see Miss Buchanan. It might be best if he had him meet 24 or 25 men at the Athenaeum. Civilities.

From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Lewis, Thomas
Abstract: 

Osler will make the arrangements. It could be very nice to have Lewis at the (Clinical) Section. They could arrange to have a special meeting where Lewis, McKenzie and some others could get together a number of cases, and the Professor (Einthoven) could give them a preliminary talk. Details on the dates of the dinner and the afternoon meeting.
