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
