Reply headed 'Mr Andrew Liddell C. Miss Dunbar'. p.105. 'The change in her cough is no material change in the state of her disease. I have had & have a precisely similar case. It is a nervous affair & is not durable'. Cullen suggests surprising her to stop it, referring to an unnamed patient who stopped coughing when her sister fainted, and to Pontefract cake-type lozenges. 10 February 1777
