Dear Sir


The very candid and polite letter with which you honored
me on the 15 Ultima in answer to mine with Mr. Heynetz's Case, was
deliverd to me by Mr. Ewart, and I am extreamly obliged to you for it,
and for the great deliberation you evidently bestow'd in forming
your opinion thereon; Of the rectitude whereof, I have the pleasure
to tell you, not only that I am convinced; but also that the patient
himself is fully so; and that he has now for three Weeks regularly
persued the prescribed plan, which agrees well, and affords us both
the hopes of as much benefit as the Nature of the {illeg}
admit; and of the Success whereof, I shall not fail {illeg}
to inform you. Yet Sir, is neither the patient nor his {illeg}
were ever allowd to have had the Gout, and were always {illeg}
Rheumatick, I will own to you that on first reading [your?] {illeg}
I was a little apprehensive, that you had adopted it {illeg}
hastely; but with pleasure I confess, that on Considering
and comparing the history of the patients suffering {illeg}
the portrait you given of the Gout, in the last edition of your
most Excellent and Valueable OutLines; I was, and am fully
perswaded that your Sentiments of the disease being so
is perfectly well founded, and I thank you for it.




[Page 2]


Further to convince you Sir of the high opinion I have of your
Judgement, I shall beg leave now correspondence is open
between us; to consult you on every case of difficulty, that
falls within my practice, in which a Consultation is desired; and
that is worthy your Attention; for I shall be always happy in
hearing from you, and in embracing every opportunity, by which
I can shew you any proof, of the high Esteem and friendship


with which I am,
my dear Sir,
Your most Sincerely,
Willm. Baylies


Compliments to the worthy and most
{illeg}le Sir Alexander Dick, and also
[Boswell?], whose letter I have lately received
{illeg}ctation of another in due time
[am at?] present well satisfied with it.
