Reply, 'Mr Marsden C[oncerning] Mr G'. Cullen says that their letters have crossed in the post. He thinks it of 'little consequence' whether Mr G's fits are hysterical or epileptic. He says he will send Marsden a model of his 'bathing machine' as it would be difficult to describe. He refers to a project of 'Inoculation' by Marsden, and to Boissier de Sauvage's 'Nosologia Methodica' and his own synopsis. 25 January 1777
