Abstract: 

Christmas greetings. It will be a sad Christmas for so many people, but on the whole, there is much to be thankful for. Optimistic comments on the war. Words about the recruiting, the training and the spirit of the country. The help received from America was splendid and appreciated. Belgians need it badly. Mentions the group settled in Oxford. With the money Grace has raised and the Rockefeller Foundation they can hold out for a year at least. Words about the clothes arranged from American clothing by a dozen of the Belgian professors' wives in their drawing room. He is hoping to secure at auction for the Hopkins Library the Hutchinson collection. Marburg and Welch have cable a bid. Confident in getting it unless Wellcome bids for his Historical Museum. His brother left him another cheque last summer for his library. Civilities.
