DOC IDSummaryDate
[DOC ID:1214] 
Unsigned and undated letter describing the case of 'the Honorable Mr. Gray', who has for the past two months been suffering from a venereal infection. Originally catalogued as from 1775 (based purely on physical place in archive), but as this letter seems to be answered by Letter ID 4062, the conjectural date has been changed to May 1777. Probably written by Robert Wood (whose handwriting bears comparison and to whom Cullen appears to send the reply). May? 1777?
 
[DOC ID:4062] 
Reply 'Dr R Wood at Perth C[oncerning] the honble. Captain Gray', signed by Cullen and Alexander Wood. Captain Gray has a throat complaint, probably venereal, for which he has been treated with mercury. Cullen and Wood advise a gargle, a recipe for which was originally subjoined but is not present in this copy. 17 May 1777
