Abstract: 

Osler deplores the death of Rupert Norton. Barker and Norton's sister wrote him that he died of typhoid fever. Tribute to him. Kelly informed him of the death of Otto Ramsay of Yale. Glad that his wife is better. Mentions that they have the Pages coming, as he will get his honorary degree. Asks him if he knew that he was approached to take Anson's place as senior member of Parliament for the University. He declines it as politics have no attraction for him. Comments about the political problems in Ireland.
