EDINBURGH. SCOTLAND. 
Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, Biochemical Laboratories. 
Professor Henry Dryerre and Dr. J. Y. Bogue. 
I found Dryerre very eager to have me visit his laboratory, which 
I did, and afterward we went out to the Experiment Station at Moredun. 
The most interesting thing in the laboratory was a young man, a very 
fine intelligent chap, Bogue. He is extremely interested in the 
direct calorimetry of the rat, he told me. He was designing and 
constructing an apparatus for rats, and I told him he should certainly 
make an alcohol check experiment before he publishes. I entered into 
a friendly conversation with him and told him to let me know his 
progress. He had most ingenious ideas and seemed to be a man well 
worthy of encouragement, and I feel that we must keep in touch with 
him, as he sounded like a good man. 
Moredun I found to be only in the problematical stage so far as 
metabolism is concerned. They had no apparatus. They had a room in 
which Dryerre told me he might install a respiration chamber for 
sheep. The room was cold, with no heat and no temperature control. 
It was an interesting place to visit, and the director, J. Russell 
Greig, was a very pleasant man, but everything metabolic seemed to 
be in the future, with nothing actually accomplished. 
Dryerre is always fussing about, is always going to do something, 
and is always nearly ready. Much to my surprise, I found that he 
had a very elaborate set of notes on Ritzman's apparatus. He seems 
heavy, serious enough, but I do not believe he will go very far. 
I hope he will but I don't think he is especially promising. Bogue, 
on the contrary, I think has great potentialities.
