Reply 'To Dr William Grieve of Peebles', concerning a Miss Tweedie. Cullen says the case seems ambiguous, although 'it threatens to become Phthisical'. He asks further questions regarding the nature of the pain and whether or not there is any suggestion of a 'hereditary trait', and suggests blistering, a seton, horseback riding, dietary restrictions, and Tussilago [Coltsfoot] leaves. Letter also mentions 'the case of Mr Braidwood's friend'. 24 May 1775
