Abstract: 

Osler sends Flexner Gordon's letter. The letter explains that they tried Vedder's starch agar and they are pleased with it. Technical details about his composition. Technical details about the meningococci's reaction with Flexner's serum, Mulford serum and the Pasteur Institute serum. Mentions that the Lister Institute and Burroughs, Wellcome and Co. have been preparing serum from strains from their cases. Robb asks him for cultures for Flexner, but his letter arrived too late, so he wired him to get some from Beattie.
