Thomas Spatchet allegedly suffers from daily shaking fits that start first thing in the morning and continue until 6 or 7 o'clock in the evening. These fits are said to prevent him from eating until the evening, when he must eat a morsel at a time while walking lest he lose his ability to speak, be unable to rise again, or be unable to keep his seat. This continued for 16 or 17 weeks.(9)
