Date: 
August 16, 1918
From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Martin, Edward Sanford
Abstract: 

Osler offers Martin sympathies for the death of his wife. Grief is a hard companion, particularly to an optimist, and to one who has been a stranger to it for so many years. Explains that they have decided to let no outward action demonstrate, if possible, the aching hearts. Encourages him. Grace sends her love. Compliments on his work for the cause. Asks him to tell his son to visit them when in England.
