[4th fit] 13: 2 Hours before day I was taken very ill, a little chilling cold, and with a proneness to vomiting; some neighbours came in, I was very sick for the time, I vomited three times, phlegm, and Choler, my burning fit was short, and then I lay in a sweat until 3 of the clock, which sweat spent and wasted the humour. I bless the lord for a spirit of patience and submission he was pleased to give me, and for the comfort of his countenance in my spirit, so that his love took away the dread of sin and death,
