This is of the inflammatory kind, and though it begins with a mild sense of cold, yet it soon rises very high, with grievous symptoms; it always affects one part of the body more than another: when it seizes the head, there is a strong beating of the temporal arteries, a swimming in the head, a drowsiness, a kind of stupi-dity or a raving, with a pain therein, a swelling of the face, and a redness of the eyes, which are full of tears. When it affects the heart and vessels of the lungs, there is a short difficult breathing, with a straitness of the breast, a strong beating of the heart, with less of strength and sinking of the spirits. Thus, from the particular oppresstion in any part, the feat of this fever may be always known.

In the cure, to free the vital parts from the inflammatory congestion of blood, the patient must lose blood freely, and the patient may be indulged with gelly of currants, or the juices of oranges or lemons; or a cooling drink may be made thus: "Take a quart of spring-water, and mix it with juice "of oranges, rose-water and loaf-sugar, of each an ounce." Or he may dri;;k whey with a little lemon-juice : then repeat the bleeding the next day if nothing forbids; if drops of blood proceed from the nose, promote it with thrusting up a straw: if the patient was costive before the disease, he must: take a laxative, otherwise clysters are sufficient to procure stools; the nitrous decoction will be likewise proper. "Take two pints "and a half of spring-water, with two ounces of sugar, "half an ounce of nitre, and a scruple of cochineal; boil "them to a quart." The dose is a gill thrice a day. Or give the diaphoretic mixture, with spirit of Mindererus, mentioned in the remitting bilious fever. When the spirits sink, and the inflammatory symptoms still remain, then, and not before, blisters may be used, and they will prove the chief remedy; lay one first to the back, then the next day to the legs and thighs, re serving the arms for the last: in great lowness, attended with a delirium, sinapisms must be laid to the feet. Opiates are always unsafe in this disease. But let me remind you once for all, that the safest and speediest cure in this disease, is Dr. James's Fever-Powder, and not only in this but in all Inflammatory Fevers, Putrid, Yellow and Nervous Fevers, as well as Acute Rheumatisms; and therefore a great deal of hazard and trouble may be spared in attempting the cure any other way.
