Letter from Lawrence F. Flick to William Osler [Transcript]
Description:
Arrangements for the meeting of the Tuberculosis Committee and Professor Maragliano's lecture in Philadelphia. Flick agrees with Osler that Maragliano's work is questionable. He does not agree, however, that the Committee should attach itself to Daniel Lewis's Congress on Tuberculosis. Still, Flick has invited Lewis to Philadelphia to hear what he has to say about his work with Tuberculosis.
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 W. O. From Dr. Flick.
Philadelphia,
March 17, 1904
My dear Dr. Osler:
Your letter of 16th inst. to hand. I feel about Maragliano's Specific Therapy just as you do and always have felt that way. He, however, has been the most conservative exponent of the views which he holds and I have thought that it would be profitable to us in this country to have him come here and tell us what he has done and what his results have been.
I wrote yesterday about the details arranged so far. If we have the lunch at 12.38 think we can safely count on being free for the meeting by three o'clock; however, if you think better to call the meeting for three-thirty do so. I have secured the upper Hall of the College of Physicians for three o'clock that day.
In regard to the Lewis Congress you know how I feel about it. From what I have seen of Lewis' methods and from what I have been able to find out about the steps he has taken so far I am forced to the conclusion that it would be an irreparable blunder to take up his Congress. We should by all means have him to the meeting and I shall invite him to my luncheon. It is only proper that we should hear what he has to say and if he can show us that by taking up his work where he leaves off is for the good of the cause and will not place the medical profession of this country in a false light I am prepared to withdraw my objections.
Cordially yours,
Lawrence F. Flick.
