Dear Sir


I am sorry to tell you that My daughter Annies complaints
have returned, occasioned I suppose from her not being regular
since the end of August last. For some months her stomach keept
nothing longer than a few moments, but since last week her food
remains in her stomach, but the keeping of it is attended with great
pain and swelling. Mr. Hamilton used to give her pills which always
had the desired effect of bringing down her courses, but of late they
have had no such effect. Annie tells me that you had prescribed
some powders to a young woman when you was last on a visit to
a Family on Loch Lomond, who had complaints similar to hers
which had restored her to perfect health. May beg the favour of
your advice as soon as you have leisure. Mrs. Wilson is in perfect
good health & joins me in best wishes to you, Mrs. Cullen &
Family. I ever am


Dear Sir
Your most obedient Servant
Alex Wilson
