Ritchie, James
To: 
Osler, William
Abstract: 

Ritchie is delighted that Osler has accepted the Regius Professorship of Medicine at Oxford. He explains that he only allowed his own name to be mentioned for the position during the period when some of the Oxford men wanted to merge the Regius Professorship with the chair of Pathology, which Ritchie currently holds. Ritchie was not eager to hold the Regius Professorship and, therefore, was not disappointed when Osler was named in his place.
