25: Somewhat worse with my cold; I sneezed; I had the pose; my nose was full of thicker matter than at some other times; I had a great pain in my right side, but with warm clothes its gone praised be god, my chest is not very much stopped, neither do I wheeze very much, I hope through mercy it will cleanse me and conduce somewhat toward my health, my water had upon it all that illness like a little fat swimming at the top, when cold and sometimes perceivable presently it would hang on the side of the urinal when the water went away from it and this day it broke very white and thick, like flood, or puddled water in some clayey ways: I brought up much rheum with anice seeds and colts foot in a pipe, went to bed, was much troubled, but better through mercy than I could have expected.
