Abstract: 

Osler reports that he cannot leave having to help in organizing the medical department of Territorial Force. Grace and Revere sailed on the 31th. Mentions that his wife will be furious to be separated from him, and she has been on the committee of the nursing department. They will return on the first steamer available. Worried about a niece and her daughter at Aix. Hopes they have got to Switzerland. Gives his opinion on war. Thinks that it all seems very unnecessary, but the natives are still in the nursery stage. Mentions that they tried to get away from the Island (Colonsay), but the trains from Oban south were too crowded. Disappointed not to see the Brewsters. Civilities.
