POSTSCRIPT to Dr Whytt’s obfervations on Lord Wal¬ 
pole’s CASE* 
« T D° not know> ic be worth while to obferve, that lately, in 
JL making fome experiments with different calculi, there was one 
almoft as white as chalk, but of a lefs hardfubflance than the others ; 
and which was not in the leaft degree difTo.lved or foftened by be- 
ing infufed 20 days in oifler-fhell lime-water, but yielded fome- 
66 what to a folution of Spanifh foap in common water. 
“ From this experiment one may conclude, that it is better to pre- 
“ fcrib eboth foap and lime-water for the flone, than any one of them 
u alone ; 
* After this paper was read at the fociety, Dr Pringle having acquainted Dr Whytt, that 
Mr Patrick Brydone had omitted, in his account, the name of the parifh where the woman 
lived, the time when fhe was cured, and alfo that he had not fully dated his paper; Dr 
Whytt fome time after wrote to Dr Pringle, that having defired Mr Brydone to furnifh him 
with thefe particulars, he had received for anfwer, “ That the woman, on whom the cure 
“ was performed, had lived all her life in the parifh of Coldinghame, and for the laft twelve 
years in that town : That her father had died of the palfy feven years ago, after having 
“ been fubjefl to thatdiftemper forfeveral years : That the cure was performed in his father’s 
“ houfe at Coldinghame, on the 4th, 5th, 6th, and nth Days of April 1757, a circura- 
U ftaRce he had noted down : That as to the date of his paper, preferred to the Royal focie- 
*c ty, he only recollects it was written fome day in the beginning of November laft : but as 
the woman ftill continued well, he hoped the precife day of the month was no material 
et oini®on> This letter to Dr Whytt is dated, coldinghame, January 9, 1757.
