Asks news. He has not seen Ernest. Mentions that they are busy. They have many American friends who visit them. This week, he has lectured at Shorncliffe, visited the American Hospitals. He has given a dinner to Finley and Meakins. Good comments on the latter. Harvey Littlejohn who was talking of the Burke and Hare memories, Osler told him of the late persistence of body-snatching in Montreal. Littlejohn suggested that Shepherd could write up the story. Osler asks him if he accepts to do it. If it is not for publication, Osler will put it with his Resurrectionist literature, in the 1829 Parliamentary Report on the Anatomy Act. Mentions his library, of the anaesthesia section. Sends him a reprint of remarks, made at the presentation of some duplicates to the Royal Society of Medicine. Civilities. Love to Gardner and Roddick.
