Abstract: 

The Oslers returned from Europe three weeks ago, but Mrs. Osler and Revere have just returned from Canada. Osler had to stay in Baltimore to prepare the medical school for the new session. He reports on his travels in England and Holland over the summer, during which he attended the British Congress on Tuberculosis and the meeting of the British Medical Association. He later joined his wife and son in Scotland. He writes of his rare book findings, especially from Müller in Holland. He is finding it difficult to keep up his medical practice and still have time for teaching and private work. Osler is glad that Shepherd is now the president of the Canadian Medical Association and offers to deliver an address at the next meeting. He has enjoyed reading Macallum's addresses and wonders if it is too late to have his and Wright's portraits done. He mentions Schäfer and Stephen MacKenzie.
