My dear Sir
The preparation to which you refer is “Syrup of Phosphate of Iron”—1 I think that as the turbidity continues you may find benefit from taking after each pill—10 drops of dilute phosphoric acid in water—2
I would not advis〈e〉 〈 〉 to drink more water3 〈 〉 The Phosphoric acid (if 〈as〉 I suppose the turbidity of urine is as it was when I last saw it)4 will diminish & not produce the deposit.
I think you had better let me have a bottle of the urine & I will have it analysed—5
Yours very truly | Wm. Jenner.
〈Co〉ntinue the phosphate 〈of〉 Iron.
Is the urine alkaline when passed? if so you must omit the potash from magn. soda & potash powder—6
Your last was address 8 Gower St.7
