DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:2151]

[DOC ID:2150] 
Letter from Thomas Naismith. Covering letter for one from his brother-in-law, John Mackenzie, concerning Mackenzie's infant son. 13 February 1782
 
[DOC ID:270] 
Undated reply headed 'For the Revd. Mr Mackenzie's Child'; Cullen says it is not easy to prescribe for an infant given the incomplete information, suggests that teething may have caused fits but that 'the nurse's milk may also have been in fault'. Although there is a 'catch-word', the rest of this copied letter was not inserted in the folio, and the mounted copy is too big for the space allocated. No additional pages to be found within this volume. 15? February? 1782?
