Reply, in form of retained, neat authorial draft, giving directions for Alexander Campbell. Cullen is unsure how much of his ill health is 'from any hurt which his constitution received in the W. Indies or from circumstances in his manner of living since', but believes regardless that his constitution is 'somewhat broken'. Although not presented in numbered paragraphs, this substantial set of directions is termed a 'regimen' by Cullen and has, as a consequence, been tagged in the database as a formal 'Regimen'. Final of three recipes deleted. 8 March 1775
