Sweats, in febrile diseases, are favorable, if they set in on
the third, fifth, seventh, ninth, eleventh, fourteenth, seventeenth,
twenty-first, twenty-seventh, and thirty-fourth day, for these [p. 312]sweats
prove a crisis to the disease; but sweats not occurring thus, indicate
pain, a protracted disease, and relapses.
