Abstract: 

Osler's telegram has given MacAlister a cruel shock. He implores Osler to reconsider his decision. Mentions the honour of this nomination, of the departure from traditions they made in nominating him, they never break that rule for Lister, they want a man who is above tradition and who will make precedents for himself. Reminds him what the Amalgamation owes to him. Guarantees him to save him all the work. They need his inspiration. Civilities.
