The letter reads: "Dear Fingland, You dear kind man! What a delightful New Year gift! The Fell + Radcliffe letters are specially valuable. R. [Radcliffe] seems t[o] have written very little. We have few letters of his here. I wish you would come and spend a weekend + browse about the Bodleian with me I have a few things too that would interest you. With best wishes for the New Year, Sincerely yours, Wm. Osler." References: Bibliotheca Osleriana 3393 & 3983; Cushing, Harvey, The Life of Sir William Osler, Vol. 2.
