NewCastle December 6th. 1780

Sir


Since You last heard from NewCastle Miss
Mary Peareth has had many returns of Her
complaint, at sometimes more at others at¬
tended with less uneasyness, the returns have
not kept any regular Periods -- She took the Uva
Ursi
which She thought affected Her head --


--- Another return seeming to approach, (and
a very severe one it turned out) the Medicine
was discontinued --- The duration of this
was protracted longer than lately usual at
the time when I suppose the Abscess broke, She
became easier, and from very frequent
inspections of the discharge, I had not the
least doubt of its being perfectly Purulent


--- The Young Lady looks just as when



[Page 2]

You saw Her in Edinburgh, is to a degree
Patient, but how to accomplish an absolute
Cure, by preventing the returns of those small
but very painfull Abscesses, I am at a loss
to devise --- She has strictly adhered to
your directions as to Diet &c -- What is a little
Singular She never has any Shiverings
during the time of Imposhumation, & scarcely
a Feverish pulse --- I shall be glad to have
Your further thoughts & directions as soon
convenient --- Miss Barbara Peareth
is wonderfull better and I have the pleasure
farther to tell you that Miss Harrison is
in perfect good Health -- I am Sir


Your Most Obedient humble Servant

Richd: Lambert.
