[29: 31: My] pose continued very much. on Tuesday 30. my cold began to settle in my chest and my wheezings were very great die. 31: and my rheum a little thickened. at night I rested very little: I was not so straightened in my chest as sometimes I have been. yet my wheezings were much. I was inwardly a little pent and listless. but not so bad through mercy as I expected I went to bed without any supper.

this day reports common all lost in Ireland. Cromwell beaten, tumults at London but there was no truth therein.
