Letter from an unnamed correspondent [identifiable from internal evidence as Cullen's former pupil Dr John Waineman], quoting a letter from his brother, another former pupil [Dr Oglethorp Wainman] concerning the case of Miss [Mary] Swaine, daughter of Daniel Swaine of Leverington. She has symptoms which he regards as resembling Chorea (St Vitus' Dance) after an intermittent fever.
