[DOC ID:169]  Linked to other Cases  
Reply, in the from of a short, undated letter to an unnamed physician, regarding his patient Mr Hopkirk. Cross-referencing to related letters indicates that the addressee is almost certainly William Hamilton who mentions Cullen's ordering of an 'infusion' for Hopkirk in his own letter to Cullen of 25 July 1781. This, and the placing in the letter-book, implies that this present note pre-dates 25 July but was composed on or immediately after 18 July. 19? July? 1781?
