Other Notes:
Hickie used to practice medicine in London and thanks Sloane for his favours. He hopes their friendship will continue. Hickie delivered 'the observations of the Royal Society' to their intended recipients, one of which was Abbe Bignon. He tells Sloane of the 'molestation' the 'Lord of the Mannr' perpetrated against him: 'destroying a few pigeons my wife has always kept'. Hickie wants Sloane and the Bignon brothers to help him deal with this troublesome man.
