Abstract: 

Osler enthusiastically comments on a book or article from Francois Pourfour Petit. He does not know who he is. His work deals with the paralysis on the side opposite to the cerebral lesion and refers to cases from Aretaeus. Gives a series of his own cases in which after injuries or diseases, he found the brain lesion opposite to the affected side. Mention of his experiments on dogs. He also discusses the anatomy. Osler will look him up, he is not in Bayle but he will find him. No one ever gave a clearer description on the history of nervous system. Munro of Glasgow wrote about it. He is finishing the revision of his text-book. Has read Marie's articles. Slips in a long note on his views. Good comments about him. Civilities.
