Abstract: 

Osler is glad to have the Laennec letter. He had put it with his necrology of Bayle. He has sent one letter to the College of Physicians in Philadelphia. The young Laennec book is fascinating. Mentions their week at Skibo with the Laird. He went to Dundee at the British Association meeting and saw many old friends. He spent a day at St. Andrews, the only British University he had not seen. Spent a few hours at the Library of the University of Edinburgh, going over their medical incunabula. He saw the third copy of the original Restitutio Christianismi of Servetus, which also has in manuscript the draft of a letter sent to Calvin. Mentions the visit of the Mallochs with their son Archie. Comments on the health of Malloch. Civilities.
