Rainy has forwarded an order of £30 to Mr Sym on a house in London and Johnstone, Mackenzie’s tenant is now able to pay his rent. A distant relation of Mackenzie’s has died and may have left him some money. Mr Littlejohn has been arrested for debt and Mackenzie is involved having given security for £50 to a tailor. There is a decrease in the number of medical students this winter. Pattison however has more than in former sessions. Burns’ and Jeffray’s classes together cost £6.6s while Pattison, teaching nominally the same, cost £2.12s.6d. John Robertson and Monteith have given up lecturing. Pattison “attends the Infirmary, gives gratis clinical lectures & is become extremely popular with the students.” Armour thinks it would be imprudent for Mackenzie to lecture at Glasgow at present. Requests Mackenzie to purchase books.
