October 3d.  The Wind W. & by S. blowing fresh dark and cloudy with some driveing showers morning and Evening; Staid here to day at my Sister's desire, Dr. Robert Owen of Presaddfed came here in the Evening & prescribed for her, but am afraid did not understand her distemper, for what she has taken hitherto of what he has prescribed has done her no good,her distemper which is a sick stomach with violent vomitings being not in the least removed; was very bad this Evening with vomiting. I persuaded her to take 3 or 4 spoonfulls of minth water with about the same quantity of Tincture of Poppies sweetened with Syrrop of Damsons at going to rest, that gave her great Ease & she rested this night very well after it.
4th.  The Wind S. W. blowing fresh and raining almost incessantly all day —— My Sister was pretty hearty all this day and had no returns of her vomit– - ing, and rested well this night.
5th.  The Wind W. & by S. and moderate, Sunshiny, clear & fair all day; My Sister pretty hearty this day also, I took my leave of her & set out about i in the Evening (haveing given the Servant 1s. ) and it was near 5 whence I came home much fatigued.
6th.  The Wind S. blowing fresh with a mizling rain in the morning about 7. and altogether dark & cloudy, yet continued dry from 7 in ye morning till night: My people haveing at last finished the wet ditch at Cae'r LLoriau, next to Cae Maen Arthur, some of them are now faceing with Stone that part that lies to the East: & others of them are stocking up Gors for winter use.

8th.  The Wind S. & by W blowing fresh, dark and cloudy all day, but yet – continued dry: about 4 this Evening by a Sudden turn of my body onely. without either foot slipping or turning. I felt as if something had struck me in the Calf of my leg, & feeling great pain thereupon I could hardly hobble to the house very lame. tho I was not distant above 40 or 50 yards, so that I conclude I must strain either a sinew or Tendon, it swelled something in a short time – I bathed it with vinegar before the fire, & went to bed & it gave me no pain all night.
9th.  The Wind S. blowing fresh and dry all day, generally dark, yet was clear & Sun - shiny from Noon till 3 in the Evening: My leg is much the same to day as last night, easy enough when I sit, & very painfull when I walk;I propose to bath it to night with oyl of Turpentine and goose Greas & to swadle it up.
