Reply, 'Dr Ross'. Cullen says that he has heard from Dr Johnstone concerning 'your patient Mr. P.' (John Parish). He gives dietary advice and also advice on use of a carriage for exercise, describing the springing of carriages used in Britain (presumably different from that used in Germany). He now suspects 'a Schirrosity of the Prostate Gland near the neck of the Bladder' and advises the use of Cicuta. He tells Ross he has not yet had any news regarding his son or his brother, Hercules Ross of Rossie. 1 March 1784
