Transcript Willis June 1st ./75 My Dear Son Sunday morning last Elliot had a slight chill folowed by some fever, which passed off in about four hours Yesterday he was up all day and seemed about as usual except that toward evening he looked feeble. I rose this morning be -fore sunrise, and soon after discovered he had a chill. this second chill lasted longer by in about an hour after it passed off he began to perspire, but looked very pale and his face had a swollen livid look I do not like. I am treating him as best I can. I wish you to see Dr. Hudspeth and ask him to prescribe for him some medicine for present ----------------------------------------- relief and a suitable Tonic I have no doubt this attack has come on for want of proper bracing up t his reduced system after the other attack it did seem so impossible & seemed realy cruel to dose him, any more, I hoped that he would get along without anything more and realy neglected to give anything to brace him up against a relaps _ I hope he may soon be relieved if not H. can prescribe medicine that will prepare the system for a tonic. I will add that he vomited up a greenish looking bile this morning while the chill was on him Send up by express as soon as you can ------------------------------------------ You can tell the Doct about his late illness, and that since his recovery he has not gained flesh or strength as usual, but I thought this owing to the warm weather, as he seemed bright & playful. his bowels have acted regularly but his discharges have been rather too white showing that his liver perhaps did not act as well as it should. I wrote you a few days since I am toler ably well. Affectionately Mary Jones. In this and the late attack his stomach reject[ed] quinine -------------------------------------- either in coffee, toddy or water, it seems impossible to get him to retain it; is there any way it can be prepared in solution that he could take it? [written upside down at bottom of page] PS Sallie wishes me to ask you to price for her, a kind of thick white goods used for making pantaloons; I do not know by what name it is called she wants it to make Charlie Sunday pants MJ.
