Mrs Gasgoigne,


It is clear that you have been the better of the Medicine
we gave you here, & the only advice I will now offer or till
Dr Black returns is that you should have a Dose or two
of the same Medicine standing by you & that in case of
any return of considerable cough, you should again take
a Dose for one night. For this purpose I have written the
Receipt on t'other page, which may be torn off, & sent to an
Apothecary at Falkirk or Sterling as you please & if any
thing new occurs I beg to be favoured with a few lines, that
when Dr Black returns we may send you our whole
advice.

Take one ounce of spring Water, half an ounce of cinnamon water, one drachm of white sugar, twenty drops of Tincture of Laudanum. Mix. Label: The Draught. to be taken at bedtime.
