Letter from James MacLeod, concerning the case of Mr Mackenzie. Mr Mackenzie, aged forty-five, complains of 'a violent asthma' and 'a flatulent spasmodic affection'. As MacLeod is based upwards of forty miles from Mr Mackenzie, he has had no opportunity to see his patient, and therefore encloses a letter containing a more recent account of the patient's condition. 2 August 1783
