". . . I have sent out notes to all the men I thought would be likely to subscribe, and up to date I have the following acceptances you may record as coming from this community: Dr. Henry A. Christian . . . Dr. John Collins Warren . . . Dr. F.C. Shattuck . . . Dr. G.B. Shattuck . . . Dr. Richard Cabot . . . Dr. Reginald Fitz . . . Dr. Harvey Cushing . . . . "You may perhaps appreciate that most everyone here . . . have been milked pretty dry owing to the contributions to the Endowment Fund . . . . "It is important . . . to make absolutely certain that this project and the Spielmann project are kept very distinct for as they are both Hoeber projects and both have a connection . . . with Osler, some of these folks may be . . . forgetful as to just what their promise has been. . . ."
