could hardly lift my head from the pillow, yet not absolutely sick – had had a restless night – all my limbs ached shockingly and much pain in my back and terrible bilious headache, and consumed with fever – got up at 5 1/2 p.m. very much fatigued with dressing, and worn out before 9 – had taken nothing all the day but a little sago about 2 p.m. when Miss Walker dined at my bedside – could not take the starch-like arrow root they brought me at tea i.e. at 7 p.m. showers during the day –
