Express to Acquaint you & Doctor Cullen with the state
of my Complaints which is worse than ever, from a
return & Incress of Running very Gross in the morning
and great Pain in makeing my Water, & the Knobs in
the left side of the fundament Incressed with Stounding
Pains in the Kidnys – In short I am very miserable
in having no Prospect of a Recovery & no better of the
Cold Bath in the morning & oil Injection at night
which last perhaps I should not have use during the
Bathing –– I thought my self a good dale better when
I saw you last & mentioned and mentioned the Evacuation
I had in the night time & continued so for some Days
after I got home, but another of the same happened some
days ago which has brought on the Running afresh, Irri¬
tat the Parts
& Incressed the Knobs. I am most alarmed
about this added perhaps to too much Exercise & use¬
ing the Oil Injection
has hurt me when I Bath ––
