[DOC ID:1272]  Linked to other Cases  
Letter from Thomas Christie. He relates his own case, including the effect of a journey to Bermuda via New York, and disagrees with a diagnosis given by Cullen some years previously. He also asks Cullen's advice on the case of a teenage girl 'whose circumstances cannot well afford to pay for it, herself'. 4 May 1776
 
[DOC ID:3816]  Linked to other Cases  
Reply, in heavily contracted form, to 'Thomas Christie Esqr.' in which Cullen concedes that Christie's diagnosis of his own condition may have been correct and in with the physician then enters into a detailed discussion of the relative merits of using issues and setons. Cullen also comments on an unnamed girl with a tumour on her neck whose case was drawn to his attention by Christie. Christie moves between Montrose, London and the Americas so it has not been possible to verify the place to which this letter was directed. 14 May 1776
