Letter from William Osler to Henry Barton Jacobs
Description:
In this letter, Osler enclosed a "joke prospectus" for an edited volume of articles about seasickness (written by members of the "North Atlantic Medical Society"). He also urged Jacobs to "keep up Jim Frick's interest in the library." The Frick family lof Baltimore had made a generous gift to expand the library of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland in 1896, in honor of Dr. Charles Frick. Osler served on the Med-Chi's library committee, hired the library's first full-time professional librarian, and was active in building its collections, even after he moved to England.

Jan. 13th, 10.
Dear Jacobs,
I do not believe you ever had a copy of this prospectus joke which I got out shortly after our return from that interesting trip.
Keep up Jim Frick's interest in the Library, get him to go over there occasionally. Miss Noyes writes very encouragingly about the progress of the work.
I have written about the Aescupalian statue.
Love to Mrs. Jacobs.
Sincerely yours,
Wm Osler
