fometimes feems rather to increafe. 
I have infilled the longer on the ftate of the pulfe in this period, 
as from thence we can learn the furefl diagnoßic. 
During the fécond ftage, mofi of the fymptoms mentioned in 
the firft continue* The fick are then unable to fit up, tho’ general¬ 
ly they fleep little, till towards the end of this period, when they 
begin to grow drowfy* They moan heavily, yet cannot tell what 
ails them. Their eyes are often turned towards their nofe, or they 
fquint outwards, and fometimes they complain of feeing objeds 
double. Some, towards the end of this ftage, grow delirious, and
