[DOC ID:3887]  Linked to other Cases  
Reply headed 'Mr [Edward] Burrow Port Glasgow'. Advice and a recipe for Mrs Burrow whose menstruation, always difficult, has been delayed by a fright. Cullen gives an emmenagogue recipe in plain English, which he admits is unusual, but is done from his regard for the family. He asks Mr Burrow to have it transcribed, so that the apothecary does not recognise Cullen's hand. 6 August 1776

Reply to 'Al. Molyson Surgeon For Mr Crawfurd'. Advice to Alexander Mollison for treating Mr Crawfurd (one of Mollison's in-laws?), who has suffered a strain at Bridgeton, affecting his kidneys, and also has symptoms of a kidney stone. This needs to be passed or dissolved. Cullen refers him to his directions for 'Mr Burrows' (i.e. Mrs Burrow of Letter ID 380), and recommends the use of lixivium and opiates, with castor oil to temper costiveness. 31 January 1777
