In Abdera Pericles was seized with acute fever, continuous and painful ; much thirst ; nausea ; could not retain what he drank. There was slight enlargement of the spleen and heaviness in the head.

First day. Epistaxis from the left nostril ; the fever, however, increased greatly. Copious urine, turbid and white. On standing it did not settle.

Second day. General exacerbation ; the urine, however, had consistency, but there was some sediment ; the nausea was relieved and the patient slept.

Third day. The fever went down ; abundance of urine, with concocted and copious sediment ; a quiet night.

[p. 269] Fourth day. About mid-day a hot, violent sweating all over ; no fever ; crisis ; no relapse.
