Reply 'For Mr Sinclair of Lethering' (i.e. of Latheron).. Dietary advice for Mr Sinclair, who has blotches and eruptions on his face. An aperient recipe is included. Probably a summary of advice given at a personal consultation (rather than a posted letter) because an associated letter from Sinclair to Cullen dated 10 April suggests that Sinclair had seen Cullen in person in Edinburgh prior to travelling home to Caithness. 20 March 1777
