October 29, 1739

1739 October 29 (Monday).  Abroad in the forenoon, but in pain, chiefly in my left Hip and Groin.  Dr. Gott occasionally here.  P.M. could not walk.  At Eve my pains exceedingly increas’d.  Neighbor How came and got my bed down into the lower room, and lifted me on to it.  All night in great pain.  My Wife got up twice.  Took Flower of Brimstone, which purged Me.
