I awaked early, much relieved from pain in the parts affected, which, however were considerably swollen and Dr. Gless[?] strongly recommended to me to go home, abstain from animal food not entirely but with prudence, to use cathartic medicines for some days, etc. My friend Joshua Longstreth offered his carriage to bring out his mother and me. We accordingly accepted it, set off about 4 PM and reached Ury before dark, just however as it began to snow from NE.
