My dear Sir
You may take carbonate of ammonia with Horseradish.1 But had better not take any other alkali till I have again had the urine analysed— You are not to take any magnesia—2 With reference to the ph. of Ir. & ph. acid I would advise you not to resume them at present—3 remain without medicine till we see how you are ie how far you are able to digest—sleep—&c—unaided by drugs— Do not resume the evil habit of drinking great quantity of fluid—4 Keep all rules but leave off medicine—
Yours very truly | Wm. Jenner.
Prescribes carbonate of ammonia with horseradish. CD is to avoid any magnesia. Recommends CD go without medicine for a time and avoid the "evil habit" of taking too much water.
