Lady Grace R. Osler to Wilburt C. Davison


13 Norham Gardens
Oxford June 3rd 1927
Dear Jonah,
I am greatly interested in this new scheme of life & future that you have taken on and send my most affectionate & sincere congratulations - for it means of course reward for your hard work here & at the Hopkins - Dr. MacCallum was here and told me much of the plans for the new university. Hope you will not find the place too isolated - I would like to ask so many questions - but cannot on paper. Dr. Welch is in London & will come here next week and he will be able to tell me everything. You and Atala must be thrilled with thoughts of what a great

work is before you. I hope you will be coming over here before you settle down.
Eights Week is just over - the weather has been perfect - almost too cool for thin dresses - but the cheeks & lips gave coloring. Ch. Ch. - kept head of the river. Oxford has been more beautiful than ever - masses of bloom every where.
Tennis is in full swing every where.
My love to you both -
Grace R. Osler

Dr. Davison
Maryland, U.S.A
