technique and does it very, very accurately, hut has done little, if 
anything, else. 
Pütter told me he had been called to take Kossel's place in Heidelberg, 
but was having difficulty in the matter of housing and apartments. I was 
rather surx^rised, for I supposed he would live of course in the rooms 
formerly occupied by Kossel. Ho is much interested in lectures and 
practical courses. In showing him the photographs of the Laboratory, he 
was immediately^with the photographs of the balance for measuring 
insensible perspiration, comparing it with Sanc.torius’s experiments and 
considering it as a 19215 model of the apparatus of Sanctorius. The 
student apparatus also appealed to him very much indeed. He had sent a 
great many reprints to us, but they had not been received. His book on 
"Vergleichende Physiologie" is pretty well known. 
Subsequently in talking with Kestner, he said the v/ork of Pütter is 
so bad that he does not feel justified in citing it in an article he has 
been writing lately. This makes it very unpleasant, because Pütter is 
a friend of Kestner. One wonders if the possibility of Pütter being 
called to Heidelberg, where Kestner formerly wa3, has anything to do with 
this antagonism. Since leaving Kiel, I liave heard definitely that Pütter 
has accepted the call to Heidelberg, and Professor Kossel told me in 
Edinburgh that that was the case. Everybody is astonished and most people 
are disappointed. The impression I got from several people was that 
liitter, during the war, was intimately associated in some military camps 
with Krehl and made a great impression upon him. Krehl lias considerable 
influence in selecting a successor in the Heidelberg position, and he 
threw his influence in favor of Pütter. It is rather involved, but it is 
certainly striking to find that the position formerly occupied by Kühne 
and subsequently by Kossel should now bo occupied by a man who has not 
accomplished more than Pütter. 
While in Kiel I also took the opportunity of meeting the son of 
Professor Kossel, who i3 professor of mathematical physics in the University.
