Abstract: 

Osler gives details on the climate in England. Grace is President of the Soldiers Guild. Mentions that they are starting two hospitals for the Canadian Contingent, as he is on the executive committee he is in London nearly every day. Glad to see the American sympathy with England and France. Details on people touched directly by war. Deplores that on the first list of casualties were two young Oxford friends. Hopes that good will come of all this war if it wrecks forever the cursed militarism of Germany. Wishes he could be with them for a week a peace. Civilities.
