Abstract: 

Acknowledgment of Flexner's letter of the 19th (CUS417/126.12). Osler would love to be with them all next year but he cannot possibly leave. Explains that they are tied up with many activities which are not very essential but it would not be appreciated if he went away for three months. He also dreads the over-warm welcome, and the many visits that would tax his heart too much. Will give him his final decision later. Thanks him for the invitation. Comments on George Draper. Has asked Newsholme to send the latter for a study of the outbreak of encephalitis. Details on the features of the outbreak. Draper said that the cases in Sheffield are of the same type as Heine-Medin. Mentions another outbreak in France where the organism described by Flexner and N. has been found. Asks him to keep it secret as the Bradford's letter was official. Civilities.
