Mr. Millen Coughtrey, M.B. and C.M., Ed., was well known to me during the whole of his University career, page 9 and I had occasion to notice his close attention so cases in Hospital at visit; and subsequently the same zeal displayed itself in other departments of study. For some time back Mr. Coughtrey especially devoted himself to Anatomy, and acted as one of the Demonstrators and Prosecutors in the Anatomical department of the University with great zeal in his work. I consider Mr. Coughtrey exceedingly well fitted for teaching Anatomy, as he has not only paid great attention to that subject, but, moreover, possesses artistic powers and a facility in modelling and drawing diagrams which would be of great use to him in illustrating the subject to students.
