It will be a great pleasure to see you both again and we hope that nothing will prevent your coming. If you will let us know when you will arrive, we want to see that you are met at the station and brought to the house. With kindest regards to Mrs. Palmer and you in which Mrs. Mayo joins me, Sincerely yours,". Mayo (1861-1939) was known for operations of the abdomen, pelvis and kidney. With his younger brother Charles Mayo (1865-1939), he developed a cooperative group clinic at St. Mary's Hospital in Minneapolis. This clinic evolved into the Mayo Clinic by 1903, the world's largest, and most renowned medical facilities. In 1915, they co-founded the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research in affiliation with the University of Minnesota. During World War I, William and Charles alternately served as surgical services consultants to the U.S. Army, and each was commissioned a Brigadier General in the medical-corps reserve at the end of the war. Lightly toned. Letter has been folded in eighths and unfolded. There is a small stain touching the "J" in the signature. Otherwise in fine condition.
