Scope and content

Letter to E.W.B. Nicholson from C. B. Heberden, Brasenose College, Oxford, England. Heberden informs Nicholson that the Curators of the Bodleian Library have been considering the difficulties created by the state of Nicholson's health. They recognize Nicholson's devotion to the Library, but they feel that due to his prolonged absences, the Library is suffering. Furthermore, the Curators do not feel that Nicholson's health allows him to carry out completely the arduous duties of the Librarian. Additional notes by Osler describing the awkward moment when Nicholson walked into the meeting of the Curators as they were discussing his fate at the Library. Osler's opinion is that Nicholson is rapidly returning back to full work, but that his health could deteriorate at any time.
