Abstract: 

(On train). Osler is worried not to have a line on how White is. Hopes he is convalescing. Mentions on Henry James receiving the Order of Merit, the greatest literary distinction in England. Mrs. Asquith was asking for White. His marcian mind made a great impression on the politicians. Wishes that he and Roosevelt would be in the Cabinet. Word about his cold. Revere has been home, now joins the No.3 Field Ambulance, north of Hazebrouck. Mentions the money and the food they received from Canada and the USA for Christmas. Details about their Christmas. Today, he has been gassing to the Public School masters on rearranging the science work. He is now on his way to Liverpool. Best wishes for 1916.
