Case note concerning J. T[ucker], merchant of Greenock who has been confined to his house after displaying signs of madness. Unsigned. Dated at head 1 April 1779, but annotated in Cullen's office with the date 4 September 1779, which suggests when the document actually reached Cullen. Cullen's response [Document 4502], which is also dated 4 April, is addressed to William Wilson who no doubt sent and may have also drawn-up this case report. April 1779
