Reply to 'Mr Thorp C[concerning] Miss Furye [Furie]' giving advice on the continued care of her improving health over the rest of the winter . 30 December 1776
 
[DOC ID:4594] 
Reply to 'Miss Furie'. Loose letter tipped-in reply by Cullen. It relates to other letters concerning Miss Furie of Spring 1781, where reference is made to her being treated by Cullen 'about four years ago.' Although bound into the volume for 1780, this probably dates from this earlier time of enquiry. April? 1780?
