DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:774] 
Reply, in the form of a loose draft, 'For Miss Thomson'. Date inferred from the patient's reply. March? 1765?
 
[DOC ID:775] 
Letter from Miss Thomson sent from Bath concerning her own case. She reports a lack of progress following Cullen's prescription and advice to employ bougies. Written in third person, but this is almost certainly a matter of formality, an assumption supported by the intimacy of her report. 27 March 1765
