Abstract: 

Osler is glad that Dock had the Beaumont collection, which is more appropriate there than at the Surgeon General's. Asks him for a photograph of St. Martin at 81 (Alexis St. Martin). They are busy medically. Details on the cerebro-spinal fever epidemic, and of his work with the typhoid inoculation. Noted that it is curious that the paratyphoid is prevailing so extensively. He lectured at Chester to the North Wales Medical Society on the soldier's heart. Mentions that there are many cases of the old-fashioned irritable heart of DaCosta, of worry, tobacco, and too much exercise. He had bought the Withering Paper, a manuscript of Perigrination of Andrew Boorde, and an edition of Aristotle. Revere has joined the Canadian Contingent and is assigned to Cliveden Hospital as orderly officer. He will go to France with the McGill Unit. Mentions Revere's interest in books and literature. Sends him a copy of his bookplate. Mentions the 22 Belgian professors and their families living on American money. Things are beginning to look hopeful. Civilities.
