To ROBERT CULLEN
MS., GUL Gen. 1503; unpubl.
Custom–house, Edinburgh, 9 Feb. 1790
My Dear Robert
It gives me the greatest concern that it will not be in my power to attend the funeral of my late very dear friend1 tomorrow. A Stomach complaint has weakened me so much that I can bear no fatigue, not even that of walking from my own house to the Customhouse. I cannot tell you how much I feel both for you and all the rest of the family. I would have been to wait on you but I was afraid of being troublesome.
Ever yours, most affectionately
[1 ]Dr. William Cullen, d. 5 Feb. 1790.
