Abstract: 

Thanks for the reports he sent on anaesthesia. Mentions that he got the ether number of Littell's Living Age, 1848, which is full of interesting materials. Informs him that they have got their War Exhibit of books ready at the Royal Society of Medicine. They are starting a project at the Bodleian, devoting one room to the History of Science. Singer and his wife are in charge of it. He has urged her to take up a systematic study of the English medical manuscripts. Singer is working at a Manfredi unpublished manuscript. A man called Levy, is working on an unpublished manuscript of Maimonides. A lady is working at Spanish medical manuscripts, and a Belgian professor is working on Quetelet. Hopes that Withington will come to Oxford to work next year. Glad to hear that the Billings biography is ready. Thanks in advance for the science editorial. Optimistic remarks about the country.
