DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:827] 
Letter from Gilbert Blane concerning the case of his sister who suffers from stomach paroxysms (Blane suspects an intestinal tumour), and containing additional information from her surgeon, Mr Logan. Blane, who had studied under Cullen, went on to become one of the leading military physicians of the later eighteenth century. 30 June 1772
 
[DOC ID:6288] 
Reply, in the form of a neatly copied retained response concerning an unnamed female patient (a 'sister' of the recipient). Undated and no names mentioned but internal evidence implies that this almost certainly is a neat copy of Cullen's reply to Gilbert Blane concerning his sister (not only do the symptoms match, but Cullen response very closely echoes Blane's very professional diagnostic account of the case). Dated accordingly. July? 1772?
