Reply 'To Mr Dunlop concerning Mrs Fisher', who has had a 'heat in her blood', but 'of the feverish, rather than scorbutic kind', in Cullen's opinion. She also has sore lips on which she has been using poultices. He recommends antimonials. He gives dietary advice, and suggestions about cold bathing. He advises against travelling from Glasgow to Prestonpans for sea-bathing, and prescribes diaphoretic and aperient medicines, and an ointment for her lips. 18 September 1775
