Reply, 'Dr Mudie C[oncerning] a Lady'. Cullen now believes that the patient's principal ailment is rectal, perhaps 'schirrous', and that this 'has a considerable influence on the affection of the head'. He suggests laxatives and topical application of a mercury ointment, advising Mudie on the composition. He asks Mudie if he has tried the fresh blister or camphor he previously suggested. 6 February 1777
