All over France and Britain, raged a peſtilential Epidemic (ſays Valeriola) called the Troup Gallant becauſe it chiefly ſeized, and carried off young, ſtrong, briſk People. The Sick had either continual Watchings, which ended in a Phrenzy ; or a conſtant Drowzineſs, which terminated in a Lethargy. Moſt at firſt had a Pain in the Head, Heat of the Kidneys, Laſſitude of the whole Body, and great Plenty of Worms which crept up the Gullet, and out of the Mouth, to the great Danger of choaking the Sick. Moſt had Spots either at firſt, which was worſt, or in the Declination of the Diſeaſe. Large Bleeding was the only Help, which was repeated in ſome ; then proceeded to Detergents, Cordials, &c. The Signs of Concoction appearing, gentle Laxatives were uſed. The Diſeaſe terminated in the 4th or 11th day. Cole.
