A copious passing of urine with convulsions--her
attendants seldom reminding her--which was white
and thick, like urine with a sediment and then
shaken ; it stood for a long time without forming a

urine of cattle. Such was the nature of the urine
that I myself saw.
About the fourteenth day there were twitchings
over all the body ; much wandering, with lucid
intervals followed quickly by renewed delirium.
About the seventeenth day she became speechless.
Twentieth day. Death.
The wife of Epicrates, who lay sick near the
when near her delivery was seized with
severe rigor without, it was said, becoming warm,
and the same symptoms occurred on the following day.
On the third day she gave birth to a daughter, and
the delivery was in every respect normal. On the
second day after the delivery she was seized with
acute fever, pain at the stomach and in the genitals.
A pessary relieved these symptoms, but there was
pain in the head, neck and loins. No sleep. From
the bowels passed scanty stools, bilious, thin and
unmixed. Urine thin and blackish. Delirium on
the night of the sixth day from the day the fever
I. e. near the statue of the founder of the city, or
the temple of the god who presided over the founding of the
Seventh day. All symptoms exacerbated ; sleeplessness ;
delirium ; thirst ; bilious, highly-coloured
Eighth day. Rigor ; more sleep.
Ninth day. The same symptoms.
