Dr. Woodhouse diagnoses and begins to treat Mary Hall for her distemper. He prepares "stinking Suffumigations, over which she held her head, and sometimes did strain to vomit." Her illness seems, at least for "some weekes" to be somewhat abated. Woodhouse appears to continue acting as her physician during this time.(32)
