Sir


Since I wrote last Miss F Simpson
has continued as nearly the same as pos¬
ible, Once or twice She had a Gentle
Perspiration ↑at Night↑ rather the Effect of Chance
than Hectic -- Her Ankles and a little above
Her Knee were once or twice a little swelled
but did not continue ---- She Eats Her Vic¬
tuals, and uses her Riding exercises
with Cheerfullness -- Continues the Use of
the Cicuta Pills - which are occasionally
encreased --- As I want a Supply of the
Pulvis folium Cicutae beg You would order the
Apothecary to send me Double the Quantity
and a bill with the Value of the whole from
the first Parcell - the Sooner the better - I am Sir

your Most Humble Servant
Richd. Lambert.
