Abstract: 

Osler writes that they are off for a few days in one of these Anglican paradises. Still, he wishes it were Avelon. Seems ages since he was in America and wonders when he shall be able to get away. His opinion on war is that if the USA comes in the complications will be worse. They are very anxious. They are all depressed about Russia. Comments about the Russian Army and the English Army. Their house is full with wounded nephews. Grace is hard at work although the hospitals are empty. Revere writes cheery letters from Etaples. Hopes to go shortly to see the McGill Unit. They are thankful Revere is not in the East. He is away very often at Cardiff, Paignton and Folkestone. Their chauffeur, butler and secretary are gone. Comments on the latter. - He adds words on the 28th : They are back home. Camac, Morris, Van Dyke and Yates Thomson came. They had a new Belgian professor asking for help. Tomorrow the Pages will come to lunch. Good comments on the work of the ambassador and on his staff, particularly Squier. Civilities.
