Explanation of the characters. It is probable that the patient was
cured in twenty days, by the abundance of bilious stools and urine.
The daughter of Euryanax, a maid, was taken ill of fever.
She was free of thirst throughout, but had no relish for food. Alvine
discharges small, urine thin, scanty, not well colored. In the beginning
of the fever, had a pain about the nates. On the sixth day, was free
of fever, did not sweat, had a crisis; the complaint about the nates
came to a small suppuration, and burst at the crisis. After the crisis,
on the seventh day, had a rigor, became slightly heated, sweated.
On the eighth day after the rigor, had an inconsiderable rigor; the
extremities cold ever after. About the tenth day, after a sweat which
came on, she became delirious, and again immediately afterwards was
collected; these symptoms were said to have been brought on by eating
grapes. After an intermission of the twelfth day, she again talked
much incoherently; her bowels disordered with bilious, scanty, unmixed,
thin, acrid discharges; she required to get frequently up. She died
on the seventh day after the return of the delirium. At the commencement
of the disease she had pain in the throat, and it red throughout,
uvula retracted, defluxions abundant, thin, acrid; coughed, but had
no concocted sputa; during the whole time loathed all kinds of food,
nor had the least desire of anything; had no thirst, nor drank anything
worth mentioning; was silent, and never spoke a word; despondency;
had no hopes of herself. She had a congenital tendency to phthisis.

became heated. On the third day, a rigor, acute fever; a reddish and
hard swelling on both sides of the neck and chest, extremities cold
and livid; and livid; respiration elevated; the drink returned by
the nose; she could not swallow; alvine and urinary discharges suppressed.
