Seite 13 - By this time a profuse sweat had broke out on every individual, and this was attended with an insatiable thirst, which became the more intolerable as the body was drained of its moisture. In vain those miserable objects stripped themselves of their clothes, squatted down on their hams, and fanned the...
Seite 13 - He retired to a platform at the farther end of the room, and lying down upon some of his dead friends, recommended his soul to heaven. Here his thirst grew insupportable ; his difficulty in breathing increased, and he was seized with a strong palpitation.

Seite 144 - E. The advanced stages, or the consecutive or febrile symptoms of the disease, whether those chiefly depending upon the state of the nervous functions, or of the circulation within the brain, or proceeding from the condition of the abdominal viscera, arise partly from the shock received by, and the depression of, the vital energy of the frame in the early stage, partly from the congested condition of the large veins and important viscera, and partly, if not chiefly, from the alterations which had...
