Miss Hearsey Fullarton

Dr Sir


I have your letter by Mr Fullarton and am
perfectly satisfied that you have done every thing that was
proper, & I am very confident in trusting also the future conduct
to your discretion. But I shall observe that the matters are
now much mended yet the repeated attacks which have
happened do not allow us to be in security, & I am clear
that Miss Hersay must continue to abstain entirely from
all animal food, & at the same time to avoid all bodily
motion but of the most gentle kind. Till the Season is a
good deal advanced her excorcise must be entirely in a
Carreage, perhaps afterwards she may go on horseĀ¬
back. She willingly enough abstains from wine & it
is proper she should do so. Let her study with great care to
avoid cold in every shape but much heat from warm
chambers or a load of bed cloaths is also very bad for her.
Let her go to bed for betimes & not Ly to long in the
morning. Let her medicine be continued & let care be
taken to keep her belly regular. The Issue is very proper
but I cant depend upon it for preventing returns of the
Pain of her side & therefore I would reserve that part for
a fresh blister. The Issue therefore of the Side may be
allowed to dry up & in case of any continuance or
threatening of return of her complaints let an Issue either
purpetual or pea
be put into her arm on the side affected.
Whenever anything new occurs to Miss Fullarton I shall
beg to hear from you. Mr Waughs recovery is as much as I
expected & I hope it may in time be perfect. I think Cold
bathing may be attended with much hazard but a goat whey
course may be of service.

I am Dear Dr Yours &cc.
