Col. Muirhead
Dear Sir,


I am favoured with yours of the 15th
[I] am glad to find that Keyser's Pills agree
so well with you, and that besides other
effects which I expected from them am glad
to find that they seem to diminish the bile
and keep the Stomach composed. I believe
they contribute to the Peeling off of your skin
which will be of service to you. Upon all
these considerations I think you should
continue the Pills for two or three weeks
longer. At present I have nothing more
to say other than to bid you continue your ordinary
diet, and when you can bear it your exercise
as formerly directed. I am pleased to find you agree
as well with Vegetables which the present Season
favours so much. Wishing you all health I am with
much regard.


Dear Sir your most Obedient humble
Servant
