Case 12887

Thomas Leades an old man that dwells in Stonystratford & sells aquavitæ. Monday 10 December 1599, 11.00 am. Lies at his heart pit ever since Saturday night & is as a thing that heaves & sucks on him & makes him that he cannot rest day nor night & would be ripped alive if I would counsel him therunto. Looks very pale & consumed. Ter nuptus [third marriage].
[In chart] Haunted or bewitched.
It is of Saturn in Libra. Water of a reasonable colour but full of motes, hairs. Once in a month to stool & then very black & hard, but vomits up all things he takes. He persuades himself that there crept into his mouth some evil thing lying under a hedge.
