From William Jenner [after 24 November] 18641
〈 〉 1864
I have had the urine last sent analysed— it is quite natural— The turbidity on cooling is due merely to urates & indicates rather excess than deficiency of acidity—2 I see no objection to your taking when troubled with acidity of stomach a small dose of chalk-potash & ammonia 〈 〉 any magnesia—3 With 〈that〉 exception I advise you to abstain from all medicines for a short time—at any rate till you see how you are progressing.
Yours very truly | Wm. Jenner.
P.S. I think you may like to have the result of the analyses In the event of your consulting anyone other than myself it may be of service— I paid 42/– for the analysis—4
CD’s urine is normal. He may take antacids for his stomach.
