section 49


Item every imposthume, out of which blood or yellow matter comes before the seventh day, unless it be broken by force, is fatal; for nature cannot evacuate the matter (of the imposthume) suddenly, by the digestion of a certain thing outside of nature, for the digestion that nature does at the beginning of the matter does not avail. Nevertheless if many good signs come from it afterwards, there is a chance (?) that he will not die quickly.446
