Dear Sir; 

Your letter of Dec. 14th regarding a University of Toronto 
Alumni banquet in Buffalo has been received and in reply thereto I 
regret to say that I have so far been entirely unable to see any 
of the Buffalo graduates in regard to this subject. Shortly after 
my correspondence with Mr. Darling of Chicago a great rush of work 
eame into the office which has required my entire time. 

It is further very necessary for me to be out of the city for 
some time in the very near future. I shall, however, make an atr 
tempt to see some of the graduates with a view of getting them 
interested in the proposition of interviewing others, both in sup- 
port of the American fellowship and the banquet, and will write to 
you aS soon as I] have something more definite to offer. 

Trusting that I may have a favorable answer for you shortly, 
I remain, 


Yours sincerely,

R.A.Falconer, L.L.D., 


President University of Toronto, 


Dear Sir:- 


Toronto, Ontarioe 


I am taking the liberty of asking you to have 


my standing in Medicine for M.B. Hxamination looked 


into. I was reported as having failed in both written 


and clinical madicinee This seems rather strange to me 


for. the following reasons: 


ie 


Ze 


3e 


he 


I passed satisfactorily on all the other 
subjects of the fifth year. 

I passed the Examinations of the College 

of Physicians and Surgeons in all subjects 
including written and clinical medicine. 

The Examination in medicine was a severer 

one than for the M.B. 

I was awarded excellent term marks for my 
work at the Western Hospital and feel every 
confidence in referring to DrseClarkson, 

John Ferguson and Pagee 

I requested that my standing be re-considered 
by the University, and received a reply that I 


could not be allowed my standing in Medicine. 

5e I am sure, by the best of authority, that there 
has not been a meeting of either the Memorial 
Committee, or of the Medical Faculty, and 
consequently feel that my case could not have 
received full consideratione | 

66 If I am granted my University standing in 
Medicine and thus my M.B.e, the Medical Council 
will confer me my license at oncee 

Ve I am very anxious to proceed overseas at the 
earliest possible moment as I have a provisional 
appointment with the ReAM.C., and thus give the 
service which I humbly owe my Empire at this very 
critical crisis thru which we are passing at the 
present time. 

es consideration of the above facts, I feel that you will 
have this matter looked into without delay. 
Yours faithfully, 


Toronto Western Hospital.

Sir,- 

I have been informed that there is to be a Toronto 

Fe 

University Battery (C.E.F.), formed. I have just completed 
the course at the Royal School of Artillery for my Captain's 
qualifications and as a graduate of the School of Science 
take the liberty of writing you to ask if the 0.C. and 
Captain have been selected. 

If the 0.C. has been decided upon,would you be kind 
enough to have me informed of his name and address? 

I would also be glad to know when the mobilization 


of this Battery is expected to commence.

My dear President Falconer: 

The authorities in charge of the Bureau of Educa- 
tion at Washington have insisted that we keep the report of our 
proceedings within certain restricted limits. On going over the 
various set speeches and other important contributions at our 
gathering, we find that, in order to get an adequate report within 
the space allowed, there must be considerable contraction. We 
have abridged all the set speeches, but are submitting the abridg- 
ments to the various authors in order that they may either cut down 
further or substitute other passages here and there. Will you do 
this with your speech so that we may have a copy which is sat is- 
factory to you but which does not exceed the space which we have 
been able to give it? 

We regret very much, certainly in your case, to be 
forced to make any contraction whatsoever because ell the matter 
was so good that it was difficult to see what we could afford to 
spare. 

I have a carbon copy of what I am sending you and 
unless you return a different version, I shall use the carbon of 
the enclosed as official copy for the Bureau at Washington, to be 
sent March 3dsOth. 


Very sincerely yours,
