Letter from William Osler to Lawrence F. Flick [Transcript]
Description:
Arrangements for the meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee and Professor Maragliano's lecture in Philadelphia. Osler believes it would be in the Committee's best interest to take up and support Daniel Lewis's Congress on Tuberculosis. Osler is dubious about Maragliano's work.

About this transcript: Soon after Osler's death in 1919, Lady Osler asked their good friend Dr. Harvey Cushing to write a biography. For this project, Cushing gathered a wide variety of material, including a substantial amount of Osler correspondence and other memorabilia borrowed from Osler's family, friends, and colleagues. He employed three secretaries to transcribe these documents, and later donated the transcripts (along with his other working materials) to the Osler Library. Because many of the original documents were returned to the owners, the Cushing transcripts constitute the largest and most accessible collection of Osler's correspondence.
Harvey Cushing's "Life of Sir William Osler" was published by Oxford University Press in 1925, and was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1926.

To Dr. Flick from W. O.
1 W. Franklin St., Baltimore,
March 16, 1904
Dear Flick:
I think it would be better to have the meeting at three-thirty; then you could have the luncheon at one o'clock. To call the meeting at twelve would scarcely give time to get over from here and from New York, and at an afternoon meeting we would have a longer free time, say from three-thirty to six or even seven. The notices will go out at an early date. We ought to get some measure of unanimity as to the action at that meeting; otherwise it will be the same fiasco as the last. I feel quite strongly that we should take up and support the Lewis Congress. I do not see that there is anything else to do. To start a third would be simply impossible, and while Lewis is not the most desirable man, yet he will not make a bad figurehead, and he is apparently perfectly willing to turn the whole organization over to good men.
Have you any additional names to those you want called to the meeting? Lewis I think should be asked.
Do you not feel a little dubious about Maragliano's specific therapy? And sorry to say I have not much faith in it.
Will you please secure the room at the College for me?
Sincerely yours,
Wm. Osler
