DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:1604] 
Case of Miss Simple, drawn up by Mr Fleming. Unsigned and undated, but annotated as December 1778. Probably sent as an enclosure (cover-letter untraced), Cullen's reply in Document 4351 mentions this report on her pulse being 100, so this case-note must presumably pre-date 18 December by a day or two (having been sent to Edinburgh from Irvine). 16? December? 1778
