Abstract: 

Osler thanks Barker for the German letter. Sends him a reply from England, and a bundle of Oxford pamphlets. Deplores the mental attitude of their German friends. Understands ones loyalty to his country, but says that the fact is Germany has been progressively preparing for this conflict for 20 years. Comments on the spirit of the country, on the soldiers turning out to be better than they would have expected. Details about a dream he had of Barker. Wonders how the modern Joseph (Freud) would interpret this. Civilities.
