Since I receiv'd your Letter, Mr. Bates
has regularly follow'd the last Prescription and
I am sorry to add without any material Change for
for the Better -- The Pills procure one Motion
in the 24 Hours rather darker colour'd than usu¬
al but not in the least ting'd with Bile; he
described the gnawing Pain in his Bowels exact¬
ly the same as when examin'd by you in Edinburgh.
Of late he complains more upon pressing the Liver
and I am sensible of a Hardness under the right
epigastric Region
; his Skin & Urine continue
a deep yellow, his Appetite is very bad and tho'
his Pulse is good & regular and he bears being
out two or three Hours a day in an open-Carriage,
yet he says that he is sensible of a Diminution
of Strength
--- Within these two or three days he
has had a little more fresh Gout in his right Foot.
I shall be glad if you will communicate this to Dr
Cullen and beg your Answer - Wou'd you advise
the use of the emetic once a Week when free from
