Miss Campbell

Dear Sir,


I am much favoured with the report
from Dunstaffnage which you Sent me
yesterday and am happy that I can now
advise Mr. Ochiltree to begin with the
use of Chalybeate. The form I prefer,
to all others is the Limatur. Martis prop.
He may begin with a dose of five grains
and if the Stomach bears it well he
should go on increasing the dose gradually
but daily till it is twenty grains twice
a day. It may be given most conveniently
in a little Currant or Calfsfoot Jelly and
if it does not render the dose disagreeable
by his (↑its↑) bulk a little powdered Cinnamon
and



[Page 2]

and Sugar may be added to every dose.


As the Spasmodic affections are very
much gone I hope the young Lady may
be indulged in laying aside the musk
but I think Mr. Ochiltree is right in
persisting in the Laudanum but upon
the whole of the Subject I expect
another Report very soon. I would
be glad to know how far he has used
or does still use the Elix. Vitriol. and
Spt. Vit. dulc. we advised not long ago.


I have endeavoured to call upon you
sometime to day but Rain and many
avocations have prevented me. I am as
always Dear Sir yours &c.
