[DOC ID:2385] 
Letter from Alexander Kellock, concerning the case of Mr Watson Carr, aged fifty, who suffers asthma attacks upon exposure to cold. Kellock reports on Carr's various symptoms and the treatments he has attempted. He also apologises as Carr's family situation means Cullen will not receive a full fee but Kellock intends to compensate Cullen by consulting him in as many cases as he possibly can. 18 December 1783

Reply, 'Mr Watson Carr'. Cullen adds a postscript concerning his fees: 'I never find fault with a fee when it is properly suited to the circumstances of the patient'. Though the main body of the letter is a machine scribal copy, the recipe for a pectoral mixture included is in Cullen's hand. 22 December 1783
 
[DOC ID:2389] 
Letter from Alexander Kellock, concerning the case of Mr Watson Carr. As Kellock fears Cullen's reply has miscarried, he recapitulates the content of his initial letter and supplies and includes further observations he has made regarding Carr's condition. 4 January 1784
 
[DOC ID:4766] 
Reply, for Alexander Kellock. Cullen responds to the addendum sent by Kellock concerning Mr Watson Carr. By the time Kellock's addendum came to hand, Cullen's reply had already been posted. Cullen does not find any of the new information provided by Kellock would change the content of his reply, but considers the absence of fever a positive development. The letter is neither addressed to Kellock, nor mentions Carr, but the linked to Mr Carr's case is inferred from corresponding dates and symptoms. 6 January 1784
