Log gives information about Mary Williams, age 26. The surgeon saw her several times. (For full details, follow link.)
24 Jan. Severe pain in the head from exposure to the sun’s rays.
30 March. She has been impregnated puivily by one of the sailors on board; and last week she quickened: she now is threatened with miscarriage & gives, as the cause of the origin of a sudden show, & uterine pains, a slight fall she had an hour ago. She may have been attempting by mechanical means to excite a miscarriage, as she is a wicked woman, & has borne children.
31 March. Pains suspended.
1 Apr. A slight haemorrhage has commenced, & the pains have returned.
4 Apr. The pains now & then recur, the discharge has ceased; the motions of the foetis are sensible to her, a recumbent posture is enjoined.
