[DOC ID:3636] 
Letter from Dr Oglethorp Wainman, concerning the case of an unnamed male patient. No date, but Wainman, and Edinburgh graduate, mentions writing to Cullen earlier about his pursuing a career in midwifery [Untraced in CDB and GU Cullen papers]. Date inferred because Wainman is writing to Cullen over another case in May 1780 as if wishing to open-up a dialogue with his old 'master'.
