One day, towards the end of Febinary; I

that the coals were not made from charcoal
but from wood.
I fastened the door and windows tightly,
in order to retain the heat, Owed the brazier .
under the table, as my. feet, and resumed my
letters. In about half an hour I became
conscious of a heavy and painful sensation
in the head, which I attributed =to my call
kande and feet.- The feeling increased, un
til a sharp spike driven through - my temples
