Dr Ash General Hamerstein Mrs Sloane
Rose offers his condolences to Sloane, having just heard of the death of his wife Elizabeth. He hopes that Sloane finds consolation in God. Philip Rose was admitted a Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians in 1691. In 1728 he was forgiven 12 pounds owed to the College (http://munksroll.rcplondon.ac.uk/Biography/Details/3854).
Name: Mrs. Rose
Mrs Rose is ill. Her husband thinks the air in Twickenham will be more agreeable. The house they are staying in was recommended by 'Dr Ash afterwards Bishop of Londondery' who said he never felt better than when he stayed at Twickenham. General Hamerstein also recommended the house and had stayed there for two summers. Mrs Rose wants company and suggests any persons 'That are Consumptive, or Asthmatick, and want a Healthy Country air' should visit.
Philip Rose will update Sloane if anything changes. Sloane should send 'the Medicines to Hungerford Market Stairs'.
