Cullen

The Consultation Letters of Dr William Cullen (1710-1790) at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh

 

[ID:3901] From: Dr William Cullen (Professor Cullen) / To: Dr John Gilchrist (of Speddoch) / Regarding: Miss Euphemia? Murray (of Broughton) (Patient) / 15 August 1776 / (Outgoing)

Reply, for 'Miss Murray of Broughton'. Advice on diet and medicines for Miss Murray, who suffers from bloodspitting, which Cullen thinks 'nothing alarming' and links with menstrual obstruction. He recommends wintering in Naples. Unclear if it is to be sent to her father at Cally House or to Dr Gilchrist in Dumfries; as it includes prescriptions, perhaps more likely to be the latter.
