Abstract: 

Macallum writes that they have created a Chair of Pathological Chemistry. The chairman would teach the students of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th years, on the Chemistry of Metabolism in disease. Gowland Hopkins has declined the offer and Leathes is still considering it. They are looking for a man with scientific and medical qualifications. Details on the salary. They created that chair to give a scientific term to the final subjects, and to promote sciences at the Toronto University, to fight against the reactionary tendencies.

Abstract: 

Macallum offers clarification on the teaching that the Professor of Pathological Chemistry will have to do. About 150 hours of instruction in the three years. He will have a demonstrator, but his duty will not be so heavy, and he will have time for research. Mentions that he will go to England late in July and will probably attend the Dublin Meeting. Civilities.
