Reply 'For Miss Ogilby'. She has 'had some feverishness [...] hanging about her for eight days past'. Cullen recommends her going to the country and taking mares' milk; also recommends exercise and taking laxative powder. Other dietary recommendations include boiled chicken or veal, with the caveat that if she is 'liable to any heat in the night time the less animal food she takes the better'. 26 May 1775
