DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:1082] 
Reply with directions for Sir Robert Henderson.. As the Bath waters are not helping his gout, he is recommended to leave Bath as soon as the weather is warm enough for travelling, and either return home (which is 'northwards' of there) or go 'abroad' to 'the South'. The addressee is an unnamed third party but may be person ID 2035, a physician of Henderson's who had received letter ID 4107 from Cullen. 1 February 1781

Letter from Dr Matthew Dobson, concerning the cases of Sir Robert Henderson and of an unnamed surgeon in Bath whom Dobson believes to have angina pectoris. 25 July 1781
 
[DOC ID:205] 
Reply, 'For Sir Robert Henderson'. Cullen gives directions for Sir Robert Henderson to take medicines apparently already given, for 'promoting the discharge of urine' and with related advice on food and drink The unnamed recipient is probably another of Henderson's physicians, possibly Dr. Matthew Dobson of Bath who wrote another letter in this case, or another of his (unnamed) physicians in Bath. But since Bath is not mentioned in the letter, the more generic unnamed'Sir Robert Henderson's physician' has been linked to the document. 12 October 1781
