Papers of Sir Henry Halford

The collection consists of letters to Sir Henry Halford from Princesses Elizabeth, Mary and Augusta; and further correspondence and writings relating to the King's health by Halford's fellow physicians: Dr William Heberden, Dr Matthew Baillie, Dr Robert Willis, Dr David Dundas, and Dr John Willis. It includes a diary written by Halford during his treatment of George III from October 1811-January 1812.

There are two documents dating from a later period: a memorandum by Halford on the day before the death of Queen Charlotte; and a letter from Halford to Lord Holland relating to his paper on the 'death of illustrious persons'.
