Sir


I am just now favoured with the inclosed
journal of Miss Campbells Case, since begining the
use of the Musk - It will give you satisfaction to find
that it seems to have been attended with, as good
Effects, as could be expected, in so very obstinate a Case
having sensibly abated the Violence of the fits, procured
sleep & sweat, and promoted the Catamenia - 2


I would, gladly, have done myself the honor of
waiting of you, with this report; But, have been con¬
fined, for some days, to my Room, with Rheumatic,
& other Complaints, the Effects of Cold.


What further Directions you have, for Miss
Campbell, be pleased to send them to me; as soon
as your Conveniency Permits. And I shall transmit
them to Mr Ochiltree, who, I hope, you'll be satisfied,
from this specimen of his attention to your orders, will
do all justice to your Prescriptions, wishing your joined
Efforts may prove successful


I am Sir Most respectfully
yours

Ivie Campbell

Notes:

1: A 'Laboratory' indicated a place where medicines and other chemicals were manufactured. This particular business has not been traced in any Edinburgh street directory of the period, although at least one other 'laboratory' was located in Edinburgh's old town around this date.

2: The 'journal', to be found at the close of this letter, consists of a calendar of the doses and methods employed for administering this medication. The abbreviated terminology is somewhat cryptic, but 'Inj' probably indicates 'by injection' (i.e. by glyster).
