Letter from Mr William Kirsopp of Hexham concerning his own case, 'a continual whising or Noise in the Head like a pann simmering before it Boiles'. assumed to be an authorial original because of the first-person voice and the distinctive handwriting, but there's no wrapper and from the folds (vertical only ) it does not appear to have been folded so as to be sealed and sent (so likely to have been hand-delivered). July 1776
