Mr Everard Macyntire Concerning Mr Craufurd.


Glad to find Mr Craufurd a good deal better, but he has still
pains at times and his dreaming awake is a sign that all is not
yet quite right. I am of opinion that he should yet put on another
blister
and that he should still persist in a very cool Diet, for
I am certain that if he does not his recovery will be more
slow---- The Whey he takes in the morning very proper & much
more so- as it keeps his belly open- I cannot object to his
walking out a good deal, but I think this a Carriage or in
this Weather going on horseback would still do better.
I would advise him to a journey; but I think he will do
better not to engage in it till by cool living he has got
quite the better of the inflammatory state he has been in

With respectfull Compliments to all at Ardmillan.
April 3. 1779.
