TitleLetter from A. Crawford, St James Street [London] to Lady Olivia Sparrow
DescriptionUndated. Dr Meryon and Dr Verity both attribute the late Duchess's death to "mortification of the bowel" and not to the "affection of the head", although this shouldn't affect the evidence of incoherence and loss of memory reported throughout her illness. He hopes Lady Olivia's mind will be put at ease to hear that these symptoms are not unusual and do not "imply indelicacy or anything that can affect the character of the patient."
