DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:759] 
Letter from unnamed patient titled 'Memmorandoms', describing his own case. Possibly delivered as an enclosure or by hand prior to a consultation meeting. Writer mentions pain and twitching in his fingertips and toes, and informs Cullen that he is moving from Glasgow to Ayr and has been advised by Dr Hill to use a 'bather machin that I was told was Contraved by you'. Verso carries two, presumably unrelated, additions in other hands; a small diagrammatic drawing and a mathematical calculation. 29 January 1764
