[DOC ID:3764] 
'For Mr Dingwal'; but a subtitle reads 'State of his case by G. Skene'. The original letter was probably written and sent from Aberdeen. It is unclear why, in a break with Cullen's usual practice, this particular communication from another physician was copied directly into his own case-book. 30 August 1774
 
[DOC ID:3704] 
Reply 'For Mr Dingwal', probably to Dr George Skene in Aberdeen. After considering the whole of his complaints, Cullen does not believe them gouty 'but think they have been owing to 'fatigue cold & wet' and provides advice for his respiratory problems. 30 August 1774
