Reply 'To Dr Livinstone C[oncerning] Lord Erroll'. Cullen states that, since the abdominal swelling has been reduced and there is no sign of liver ailments, Lord Erroll's ailments stem from what he calls 'internall piles', but later describes as rectal 'tumours'. He describes the symptoms and says that he has applied a bandage and compress. December? 1777?
