[DOC ID:106] 
Reply for Mr James Duncanson in Fredericksburg, Virginia. A long, detailed regimen, with recipe for ointment given in English incorporated into the narrative. Cullen has apparently previously had a different account of his case from Duncanson's brother (Dr Thomas Duncanson) in Forres. James Duncanson has a variety of ailments, including varicose veins, to be treated with laced stockings, a stomach disorder and possibly gravel. The underlying problem is a 'laxity of the solids' resulting in a 'stagnation of the fluids'. Cullen recommends his former pupil Walter Jones, soon to be returning to Williamsburg, as a physician. August? 1770?
