Letter from Samuel Hughes to William Osler [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. Many of the original documents were returned to the owners. The originals that were retained, together with 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.

Sir Sam. Hughes to W.O.
21 September 1916.
Savoy Hotel, London.
Dear Sir William,
Your telegram, which came during my absence inspecting timber camps in the north, reached my notice only today.
I am at a loss to understand your interest in this matter but if you will be good enough to see me will be pleased to hear your explanation as to why you ask for the information.
I presume you have returned to Oxford.
Faithfully,
Sam Hughes.
