Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

Osler writes to Birkett that he will not come out because of the war. Comments about the Charlton matter (Margaret E. Charlton). He talked with Casey Wood about the library and the latter will develop the ophthalmic side. Repeats that he hopes his collection will go to the College. Explains that his brother Edmund Boyd Osler has given him in the past two years about 1000 pounds for the purpose of purchasing books. Asks him to let him know who is the new Acting Librarian. Glad that his appointment as a Dean is unanimously approved. Suggests to have Shepherd's portrait painted by Guthrie of Edinburgh.
