Dear Sir


Mrs. Brown, who delivers you this --
has had a tumour on the Scapula for some time. When
it was noticed at first, which I think is about two --
years ago, it was then as hard and firm as it is at
present, but not near so large. The only direc¬
tions given at that time were, to take particular care
that it might not be accidentally hurt, and that she
ought to move that Arm as little as possible.


Lately Doctor Marshall & Mr Hamilton have
been consulted, but as we understand, that it had been
proposed to consult you, which we highly approved of
We recommended to Mrs. Brown, that she should go
in to Edinburgh for that purpose. The intention
of this letter, is to introduce her to your acquaintance.


I am Dear Sir
your most humble Servant
Robert Wallace
