6: This day my water broke as formerly, through mercy in the daytime I found no trouble with my throat or cold, though in the morning my throat was swelled, and my rheum did abound more, and was thinner than the former morning; my night rest is with Continual dreams: my wife in the night very ill faint and weak and rested not, our maid wonderful out of quiet with a sore finger, so that she especially had little rest, I lay most part of the night in a great sweat until time to arise.
