Letter from Henry Miller in Kirkcaldy, regarding the case of Miss Douglas (of Strathendry?), 'formerly under your care when there was a suspicion of ...a Phthisis Pulmonalis' and whose face is now 'almost Hippocratic'. He also gives an update on the case of Mr Cowan and on a patient identified only as C. I., who has consulted physicians and surgeons in London about a hydrocele. He asks for Cullen's advice regarding his own lumbago and sciatica. Knowing Cullen's enthusiasms he adds: 'You need not doubt that I am in flannels.' The alteration of the annotation on the cover to 'Mistress Douglas' may suggest that the original cataloguer had conflated the patient with her mother. 18 June 1775
