Cullen

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

 

[ID:5798] From: Dr William Cullen (Professor Cullen) / To: Dr Fotherley Pannell / Regarding: Mr William Bower (Patient) / 14? March? 1789? / (Outgoing)

Reply to Dr Pannell concerning the case of Mr Bower. Cullen believes that his accident had caused 'a nervous debility' and that his chest ailments 'have arisen chiefly from cold'. He is doubtful of hydrothorax, but approves Pannell's treatment, recommending blistering. The date is inferred as the dateline on the copy is damaged, but Cullen's remark that there is no post going out tomorrow suggests he is writing on a Saturday.
