From: 
Madan, Falconer
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Madan is sorry to have caused trouble. He found that the Account of the Bodleian Picture Restoration Fund is at London, County and Westminster Bank. He never thought that the Committee would choose that Bank so as to avoid confusion with the Bodley account at the Old Bank. His employees have been impressed by Osler's running powers and semi-violent congratulations on Keble Road. News of Kipling's grandchildren. Remarks that bridges cannot join the Dodecahedron, only Carter of Magdalen can, as well as the Warden of All Souls.

From: 
Madan, Falconer
To: 
Cushing, Harvey
