Short summary:  Thanks for the addressee's kindness in asking for the author's opinion on the arrangement of the catalogue of the addressee's library: the author prefers the arrangement in the Cushing catalogue to that in Bibliotheca Osleriana, that is a single alphabetical arrangement, cross-references are absolutely necessary; the author is satisfied that the addressee also will include the inscriptions from the books
