Unsigned, undated case note headed 'State of Mr Robert Shaw's Case'. Internal evidence reveals that Shaw is thirty years old, spend periods in Aberdeen, and has 'pupils' (schoolmaster or tutor). Having suffered from skin eruptions as a youth, for the past 3 years he has had a cough with sweats and expectoration. He is now weak, emaciated, and has some swelling of the legs and feet. The letter seems to have been brought to Cullen by an unnamed 'Gentleman'. The author may be identifiable from handwriting.
