Reply ' To Mr [Thomas] Duncanson of Forres' {Vol..6, pp.35-6 ]. It answers letter 1165 which reported on two patients: Mr Cumming of Altyre and an unnamed young female patient whose constitution is 'in great disorder'. The dating - which must be between the 1st and 12th September - is inferred from Duncanson's incoming letter and positioning in case-book. September? 1775
 
[DOC ID:1178]  Linked to other Cases  
Letter from Thomas Duncanson at Forres, reporting further on the case of Robert Grant, a young servant to Captain Urquhart and mentioning the progress of Mr Cumming of Altyre in a postscript. The annotation giving Grant's first-name as 'John' must, presumably be an error. 24 November 1775
