Copy of a letter from an unnamed female patient, who suffers from severe headaches, which occasion her 'not only much pain but Disagreeable Ideas from the apprehension of future melancholy consequences and these apprehensions'. The letter seems to be delivered to Cullen by a Captain Grant, to whom she has sent it. She is concerned about her anonymity: 'You know there is one person of the Physical tribe who I confide in here, I wish them and myself to be nameless'.
