August. 1. This cold was breeding two or 3 weeks. my phlegm now began to thicken and to break away, my wheezings were very much. at night I was chilly I went to bed early, took only a posset, god gave me some rest. my thoughts were not very troublesome, my cold thickened and broke away, much to my ease, for which I desire to give praise to my god: yes my soul rejoice in him.
