Dear Mr. Coughtrey,—It gives me great pleasure to afford any testimony to your ability and acquirements as a medical man. I have no doubt that, from those under whom you held the responsible and important situations in various capacities connected with the School of Medicine in Edinburgh, yon will command abundant testimony of your qualifications. But if I may add to these, I should say that, in the teaching of Anatomy, as well as in the more everyday work of general practice, I should be much disappointed were you not ultimately to take a high position. Wishing you every success, I tune, yours very truly,
