“September 5th - Nicholas Cook aged 79 years
“This poor old man is detailed in Page 29 of the Journal was suddenly seized this day with a severe cold fit, which I feared would have immediately terminated in Death. I had him ? and put to bed and placed a in a warm blanket, a bottle hot water to his feet and another in flannel to the Recordia. Gave him a draft of ? Opium and peppermint water with a good stiff glass of grog furnished promptly by the Captain which in a quarter of an hour relieved him and he had profuse perspiration. Five grains of Coloniel were administrated with the ?. every 5 hours. He had two copious black ? stools and has also passed a quiet night. The febrile symptoms much abated with Lemonade, Barley water and Treat ad lib. This afternoon he sent me a request by the messenger that he found himself so well he would be glad if I would him his usual glass of warm rum and water, On visiting him at 8 pm the fever gone and much recovered, I gave him hot wine and ginger with a little water for this night
7th Found him nearly recovered: Ordered him Sago and wine with his accustomed warm rum and water at night
8th Quote well again - continued as usual

This is a very old man and except Debility, has not serious complaints. I give him three or four glasses of wind daily and Donkins meats and Sago alternately, and as the weather is colder nearing the Cape of Good Hope, I gave him a night a tumbler of Rum with hot water and the convict to attend on him”
