Letter from Adam Boyd, Cordale to W. Mackenzie, Physician Clerk, Royal Infirmary

Scope and Content

Boyd is getting better and uses the bath every morning. He has used a little of the muriate of iron and is looking forward to the trip to France. Mr Stirling has engaged Glise as Boyd’s assistant with the understanding that he is to be Boyd’s successor. Hopes they can join with Mrs Ritchie, Mrs Stirling’s sister in law. Does not think France is in a “very tranquil state.”
