Pegu, one of the richeſt, and fruitfuleſt Countries of the World, yet its Metropolis, lately repleniſhied with Millions of Inhabitants, was waſted by a terrible Famine from War, that ſcarce 7000 Men, Women, and Children, were left alive ; and theſe were fed on human Fleſh ; Parents ate Children, and Children Parents ; the Stronger ate up the Weaker. Clark’s Examples. --— Says Cole, in the Foro Julii, Wolves leaving off to prey on Beaſts, killed many Children and Men. This Summer was exceſſive Heat and Drought ; Swarms of Fleas, Flies, and Gnats, abounded ; as did great Plenty of Armenian Apples. Tertians, with Spots, and continual Fevers, invaded ; which were readily cured by Bleeding, Purging, or a bilious Diarrhea. But the Heat encreaſing with the Spring and Summer, more ardent Fevers, Spots, Worms, Diarrheas, and Vomitings, came on ; but Bleeding cured them. Smallpox and Meaſles, became epidemic among Children ; though the Symptoms were bad, yet they moſtly recovered. In the Beginning of Harveſt, the Plague, with a Synochus Fever ſet in, with Worms, and an exulcerating Diarrhea ; ſuch as had a ſtrong Pulſe at the Beginning, Watery Urine, and a great Pain of the Head, eſcaped, by the Help of Syrup and Water of Sorrel after Bleeding. But Bubos appearing, (which are always milder than Anthraces) the Skin cut, and Pieces of white Hellebore Root put in, in the extreme Parts, were very uſeful. Where the Urine was moſtly turbid on the third Day, they died the fourth. Near the End the Pulſe was obſcure and weak. Neither Bezoar, nor the Armenian Stone, were of any Service here. A ſore Plague raged in London, Lichfield, and Leiceſter, &c. Stow.
