The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 31
From Alexander R. Simpson, M.D., F.R.S. Edin.; Professor of Midwifery and Diseases of Women and Children, Edinburgh University; Vice-President Obstetrical Society of Edinburgh. 52, Queen-street, Edinburgh, April 1st, 1872
April 1st, 1872.
Mr. Coughtrey is possessed of natural abilities of a high order. He is animated by an enthusiastic delight in Anatomical pursuits, and has obtained an acquaintance not only with Human Anatomy, but with Comparative Anatomy, and, I should add, with Pathological Anatomy, which abundantly qualifies him to be a teacher of the subject. He has had the best possible opportunity of acquiring the art of imparting instruction in the dissecting rooms of the Edinburgh University; and front my knowledge of some of his students, I can testify to his being a successful and acceptable Demonstrator. Altogether, I think the Liverpool School of Medicine will be fortunate in securing the services of such a man.
Alex. R. Simpson.
