Unsigned letter from J. Love, in Paisley, describing his own case. Undated, but annotated as July 1778. Begins with symptoms and the becomes a series of questions, as suggesting this is a note Love sent to Cullen in advance of the personal meeting he mentions elsewhere. Love's faded handwriting and erratic spelling renders some words difficult to decipher. July? 1778?
