Dear Sir

My little child's bowels are very
much disordered, they have been so for several
days, his discharges are frequent & copious and
very green, he has taken Rhubarb & paregorick
and castor oil & chalk, he appears to be in
great pain when he has an evacuation
I will thank you to send me something
to relieve him, I had an idea of giving him
calomel but his mother was afraid, if you
recommend it he shall take it

your's &c &c

James F. Maury

the child is 3 mo: old
