Dear Sir

Mr. Withers has considerable fevers at night and complains
of his hip which is very much puffed, and if you think it nec=
=essary I can have it opened by a neighbour who lives near--
as you mentioned nothing respecting it I feel at a loss what to
do--until I hears I send by the servant 6 dozen of Eggs--

in haste,

Yours Respt.

Eliza C. Withers

PS. send another vial of the
camphorated mixture
his hip has no inflamation
whatever and the poultice now
is slippery elm, and milk and is
taking bark when clear of fevers
