F'dt. of. a.ll:> the mof] commendable Iigne is, when he that is furpr izcd wlth a Fever, rc. rains the fame cuflome in avoyding his excrements which be ordinarily ufed when his body was bdl in health.

2. Alwaies in excrements you nnil] regard the quality and quantity of the dyct; for take this for a certain ru le, and you {hall finde it never vary without a miracle, how much the excrements are-different from that,fo much worfc

is the fign.. ..

3. Laudable excrements are neither too thick n~r to thin, yet it' is worfe that they be tOO' thlck, then too thin; for afirlngency in a ~ever is

is naughesand not to be allowed. He is fitter make a Hangnlan then a Phyfician,lhat, takes care that his Patient goe orderly to ftoole.

A loofneffe in a Fever proclaimes to th world that the Patient kept jJl dyct before. 4. It is exceeding good that the colour of excrements be according to the food taken.

S It is very good that the patient go to without pain, for if nature be troubled to expel natural excrernencs ; {he wil find a harder pull of it to expell the difeafe.

6.lf the excrements be llquld.v.e. if the man that is lick of a Feaver have a loofneffc, 1lnd what comes from him, come without violence, pain or wind, it is a hopefull fign , fo~ ~a,~ure hath fuund OUt a way to turn out the difeafe at the "ack~door.

Here's a flt-ange thing, that the wormci have as much knowledge as a Phyfician.
