Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

MacAlister reminds Osler his past refusal of the offer of the Presidency of the Royal Society of Medicine. It was an unprecedented snub to the premier medical body of the Kingdom. Asks him unofficially and confidentially once more to accept nomination. States that it is his duty to accept it as there are great things expected of, and to be done by the Society. He is the perfect candidate for the task. Argues that it would help him in view of the position he has taken up with the Postgraduate scheme.
