DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:3038] 
Letter from Laurence Edmonston concerning the case of Miss [Johannah] Sanderson (one of his sisters-in-law). Because Cullen's letter was delayed due to a detained ship, it only reached him just before she died (14 Dec 1786), her cough and weakness having grown worse after the shock of her mother's death. Edmonston's wife has made a pair of Shetland worsted gloves for Cullen, 'which we can not be restrained from offering for your acceptance'. If Cullen likes them, they will send more. They (and presumably the letter) are to be delivered via Mr Cheyne. 5 June 1787
