The 4<>1k>wiiig account of the plague at London in
lti$5, is taken from Rothelan.
Tük In its maliglity it engrossed the
ils of all other maladies, and made doctors despica-
ble. Of a potency equal to death, it possessed itself
of all bis armories, and was itself the death of every
ether mortal distemper. The touch, yea, the very
eight of the afflicted was deadly: and its signa were
so sudden that families seated iu happiness at their
roeals, have seeu the plague spotbegiu to redden, and
have wildly scattered themselves -forever. The ce-
ment of society was dissolved by it. Mothers, when
they saw the sign of infection on the babes at their
bosom, east them from them with abhorrence. Wild
places were sought for shelter;—-some went into ships
end anchored themselves afar off in the waters. But
.Aerogel that was pouring the vial, had a foot on the
•H an well as on the dry land. No place was so wild
' that the plague did not visit—none so secret that the
aiúckrsígbted pestilence did not discover,—none could
fytktt it did not overtake. It was as if Heaven had
lopentod the making of mankind, and was shovelling
into the sepulchre. Justice was forgotten,
rod ho courts deserted. The terrified jailers * fled
Imp the felons that were in fetters—the innocent and
ty leagued themselves together, and kept with-
prison for safety,—the grass grew in the mar-
the cattle went moaning up and down the
épondering what had become of their keepers:—
Mis lubfcfand the mens came into the town and built
ftÉ' Mitiln the mote belfries:—silence was univer-
«1 save when some infected wretch v(u seen glamor-
ing ara window. ^

Fires became extinguished, as if its elements
expired,—the seams of the sailorless ships
ijto the,sun.—Though doors \yere open, and
iWatched, there was no theft, all offences
and no crime, but the universal woe of the
>, was beard among men. The wells over-
~ conduits ran to waste; the dogs banded
together, having lost their masters, and ran
all the land; horses perished of famine
,—old friends but looked at one another
mot, keeping themselves far aloof—little
went wandering op and down, and numbers
wile seen dead in all comers. Nor was it only in
plague SO; raged. It traveled overa
of the whole earth, like the shadow oían
i as. if some dreadful thing bad been interposed
inis --i2i- and the sun, the source of life.
