From Argyll D. Robertson, F.R.C.S., F.R.S., Edin.; Ophthalmic Surgeon to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary; Examiner Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh; Late Lecturer on Practical Physiology in the University of Edinburgh. Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, July 13th, 1873
July 13th, 1873.
Mr. Millen Coughtrey has been known to me for several years as a diligent and enthusiastic Student of Medicine. He has always shown a particular leaning towards Anatomical and Pathological studies, and was, understand, an able and most painstaking assistant to Professor Turner in some of his recent investigations regarding the Anatomy of the Cetaceae. Mr. Coughtrey's anatomical knowledge is extensive and accurate, and he possesses, T believes, considerable powers of original observation and research. For six months Mr. Coughtrey acted as Clerk to the Ophthalmic Wards of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, and discharged the duties of the office most efficiently, displaying great interest in the study of Ophthalmology. I found him at all times most willing to oblige, and to employ his skill as draughtsman for the more accurate recording of rare or interesting Cases. In my opinion Mr. Coughtrey will, if appointed, prove a very efficient Demonstrator of Anatomy to the Liverpool Royal Infirmary School of Medicine.
D. Argyll Robertson.
