Mary the Oldest, some few days ago, had a fever at
night, but the next Morning she appeared to be clear
of it & was walking about the house, last Wednesday
& Thursday - she Complained of a Violent pain in her
ear, which gave her a fever, the next morning she
appeared to be better and was walking about - The rising
in her ear appears to have broken on friday - and dischar
ged - last night she again had a fever, but she was about to day


to night she has a high fever, she has not had
a passage since Saturday night -- she is going on

am afraid, she may have The Croup -. I will

see Them without delay, as My son has requested
you to be sent for if They are the least unwell
