Abstract: 

Osler explains to Flexner that it is difficult to induce the Belgian professors to accept the Harvard or the Chicago offer. No one has accepted. It is a huge problem what to do with the Belgians here. The Government is bringing over another 50 000 from Holland. In Oxford, they have 15 Belgian professors with their families, all settled and most of them at work. Wonders what they should have done without the Rockefeller help, though friends in America have been very generous. It will be a long job to take care of them. Mentions that two of their rooms have been transformed in a sort of old clothes shop. Denys and his family are charming. The latter is doing a big research on tuberculosis. Civilities.
