Reply, 'For Mrs Gordon of Ardmealie', recommending travel to Scarborough. 17 July 1768
 
[DOC ID:400] 
Reply 'To Dr Skene About Mrs Gordon of Armea[lie]',. This transcript is in two parts. The first is a rushed entry in the case-book, which was abandoned and a blank page left for its completion. The conclusion of the letter (with some overlap of text) is in the form of a tipped-in, autogragh draft. The original letter posted to Skene is in Aberdeen University library special collections, [David Skene's papers: MS 38/153]. A few readings have been confirmed through comparison with the posted version which includes opening and closing passages not recorded in the case-book copy. 24? August? 1768?
