Letter from William Osler to Lawrence F. Flick [Transcript]
Description:
Osler does not see why Flick would not agree to participate in the Daniel Lewis Congress on Tuberculosis if it was handed over to their Tuberculosis Committee. Osler advises against forming a third Congress that would compete with those of Lewis and Clark Bell. He accepts the invitation to the Maragliano luncheon.

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 18, 1904
Dear Flick:
I do not see it all, if the organization of the Lewis Congress is practically handed over to us, what possible reason you could have for keeping out. A third organization is out of the question, and enough good leaven can be inserted into the present dough to make a really good loaf. What would you propose as an alternative? We ought to have the matter pretty definitely settled among us before the meeting, or there will be no end of confusion.
I am awfully sorry that I cannot go over to the Staff Dinner on Saturday night. I shall of course be delighted to be at the luncheon on Monday.
Sincerely yours,
Wm. Osler.
