Letter, in form a case history, from a 'C. B.' [Dr Charles Bisset] regarding the case of Mrs Bisset, who has suffered from a pain in her left side for the past 14 years after she had a miscarriage. No cover letter traced, so possibly this free-standing document was hand-delivered. 12 July 1772
 
[DOC ID:833] 
Reply (in the form of a corrected retained draft in Cullen's own hand) to Dr Charles Bisset, regarding Mrs Bisset's case, of which he is 'sorry to find it difficult either to explain its nature or to propose a cure'.
