Reply, to 'Ewart surgeon in Dumfries C. a Hysteric man & the Jamaica man'. Cullen believes that one patient is hysteric, while the man from Jamaica is in danger of phthisis. He refers to a 'Bark Infusion as in Page 307. for Drysdale' for the hysteria case: this is probably Letter ID 3948, which includes a Bark Infusion recipe. 9 February 1777
