[DOC ID:3511] 
Letter from C. Robertsone, James Wood and Donald Roberts, concerning the case of Mr Thomson, who has a bilious complaint, and is coming to Edinburgh to consult Cullen.

[DOC ID:5819] 
Relpy to Dr Robertson and colleagues, concerning the case of Mr Thomson, who has been to consult Cullen in person. Cullen chides them for leaving so much of the case to Mrs Thomson's narration: 'the History of such a singular and anomalous case, should not have been left to the report of any female whatever'. He concludes that the case is based on a gouty diathesis, and recommends the use of musk. 15 May 1789
